On the way to work this morning, I heard a news report that they’ve discovered how to add caffeine to pastries such as doughnuts and Danishes.  Is that something that people want or need?  Are there people who can’t take the time to drink their coffee or Diet Coke or tea or Red Bull in order to get caffeine?  They must add it to their doughnuts, too?

So I came home and looked it up on the internet.  The story was right.  Here’s the story:

AP) DURHAM. N.C. That cup of coffee just not getting it done anymore? How about a Buzz Donut or a Buzzed Bagel? That’s what Doctor Robert Bohannon, a Durham, North Carolina, molecular scientist, has come up with. Bohannon says he’s developed a way to add caffeine to baked goods, without the bitter taste of caffeine. Each piece of pastry is the equivalent of about two cups of coffee.

While the product is not on the market yet, Bohannon has approached some heavyweight companies, including Krispy Kreme, Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks about carrying it.

I’m not sure why, but that’s funny to me!  Adding caffeine to pastries!  What’ll they think of next?
