Hold The Coffee! Caffeinated Donuts and Bagels Could Provide That Morning Buzz!

DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 24 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ — If that cup o’ joe you drink each morning to get moving is getting old, just wait. You soon may be able to get the same jolt from a donut or bagel. A North Carolina scientist has developed a way to add caffeine to baked goods and is now pitching the concept to some of your favorite bakeries and coffee shops.

Buzz Donuts(TM) and Buzzed Bagels(TM) are the brainchild of Dr. Robert Bohannon, a molecular scientist living in Durham, NC. Dr. Bohannon has developed a way to mask the normal bitterness of caffeine so that it can be used in food and pastry products such as bagels and donuts.

“I had the idea for caffeinated pastries several years ago, but the bitter taste of the caffeine would always overwhelm the flavor,” says Dr. Bohannon, who is president of Onasco, Inc. “I eventually worked with some flavoring experts and designed a method to mask the bitterness, which led to successfully adding the caffeine equivalent of one to two cups of coffee to the food item.”

Dr. Bohannon has already approached well-known chains including Krispy Kreme, Starbucks and Dunkin’ Donuts about his invention. He thinks it’s just a matter of time before caffeinated pastries become a morning mainstay. He has already patented the idea along with a method of controlling the amount of caffeine contained in the food.

A typical cup of coffee contains 50 mg of caffeine. Caffeinated pills contain between 100 to 200 mg per capsule.

“Some people get their caffeine buzz from soda, chocolate and other sources besides coffee,” continues Dr. Bohannon. “The Buzz Donut and the Buzzed Bagel lets them get the caffeine buzz by simply eating a delicious pastry item.”

Two quick observations:

Based on the number of exclamation points in the headline, I’m betting PR Newswire got some free samples.

At least No Doze has no calories.  This is definitely going to up the ante on the Freshman 15…

“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”


Upon common theatres, indeed, the applause of the audience is of more importance to the actors than their own approbation. But upon the stage of life, while conscience claps, let the world hiss! On the contrary if conscience disapproves, the loudest applauses of the world are of little value - john adams
