Mints With Bawls

There are several different candies on the market that will wake you up, keep you awake, and not let you fall asleep. Caffeine abounds in candy mints I found on Think Geek.

"Finally! Mints With Bawls!

Spiked with the same high-caffeine Guarana that fuels the amazing BAWLS soft drink, these fizzy sweet mints are some of the best candies around to help you stay up all night. They are even slightly carbonated to mimic that authentic BAWLS experience. And they taste great!

Your choice of a single tin or a 4-pack of tins. Each tin contains approximately 75 slightly carbonated BAWLS mints. Each mint contains about 1 milligram of caffeine (via Guarana & pure caffeine). Contains real sugar (each mint has about 1.3 calories and a quarter gram of carbs). Regular candy is for babies. BAWLS mints are not for babies.

Lots of people I know like to calm their caffeine cravings with candies, but I like my coffee. I drink medium strength coffee every morning, two or three cups. The whole experience of coffee is what I crave: The aroma, the taste, and the after bliss. Yeah.

????? Excuse me you guys. I seldom drink coffee (any coffee) and I don't get this influence you guys got from it. Either I was too dense or caffeine just cannot defeat me...

Is coffee really great?

Come to think of it, I am also not addicted to cigarettes. (REALLY).

Hello techno babe, This doesn't really have to do with this post, I read one of your replies on Pearls ( )
You inquired about a Mango-lime salsa recipe. Here it is.


1 Tablespoon olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

3 cups fresh corn kernels (about 6 ears)

2 cups diced mango

1 cup chopped red bell pepper

1 cup chopped red onion

Juice from 1 large lime (about 1/3 cup)

¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

½ teaspoon kosher salt

1 Chipotle chile in adobo sauce, drained, seeded and chopped

2 cans black beans, rinsed and drained (15 oz cans)
* 8 cups of fresh spring salad greens



Heat the Olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, cook for about 1 minute.

Stir in the corn kernels; cook until browned about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Place the corn mixture in a large bowl. Add the mango, bell pepper, onion cilantro, lime juice, salt, chile and black beans and stir well.
