Crackheads Candy Review
What You Should Know
Crackheads Candy is a fun product that plays on Hollywood’s rendition of how drug addicts, specifically crackheads, act. The candy is not a drug and does not contain any illegal ingredients, but it is quite the potent mix of chocolate and caffeine. There is enough caffeine in one box of Crackheads Candy to replace up to six cups of coffee (if you purchase the Crackheads 2). That is a dangerous amount of caffeine.
There is a warning on the outside of the box, but the warning is tiny in comparison to the name of the product. We are concerned that kids will see the box and like the name and eat the candy before an adult can step in. If you have children or children will be around when you’re consuming Crackheads Candy, do NOT leave the package unattended.

The ingredient list for Crackheads Candy is quite interesting. There is a lot of caffeine in the mix, but the company threw in some guarana as well, likely for a source of caffeine that does not taste like caffeine. There are also coffee beans in the candy, which supply even more caffeine. The remaining ingredients are nothing more than chocolate, binders and more chocolate to create the candy itself.
Each box of Crackheads Candy contains 180 calories, 10 grams of fat and nearly 20 grams of sugar. The candy is clearly not a diet food. There is no protein or fiber in the candy to offset the impact of the caffeine and sugar. You will feel a sharp increase in energy and that energy could keep rising until you feel overwhelmed by the jitters and shakes.
- The product is available in multiple flavors.
- The ingredient listing is available on the website.
- The product contains an excessive amount of stimulants.
- The product could lead to overstimulation.
- The product may not increase weight loss.
If you want to eat chocolate and lose weight, you should probably stick with a cocoa-based product with few calories and only healthy fats. The fact that Crackheads Candy contains 180 calories, mostly from sugar, and up to 600 mg of caffeine per box is insane. This is not a diet product or a health food – this is a caffeinated chocolate with negative side effects written all over the box. Keep this product away from children!
