What You Should Know
Ed Hardy King Dog is a novelty item from the Ed Hardy company. Ed Hardy is well-known for images of tattoos on clothing, jewelry and perfume. The company has expanded into the food category with candies and mints – some of which contain caffeine. Ed Hardy King Dog claims to be highly caffeinated. In truth, one mint contains just 22 mg of caffeine, but when you open a tin of mints it can be extremely hard to stop eating them, according to Ed Hardy. Eating multiple mints increases the amount of caffeine you consume. Each tin contains about 36 mints, which accounts for more than 600 mg of caffeine. This product MUST be kept out of reach of children as a child could overdose on caffeine with fatal results if they eat the entire tin.

We love caffeine products. Caffeine is one of the few ingredients commonly used in diet supplements with clinical support. Taking caffeine can increase energy, focus and metabolism. Caffeine is even used by the US military to improve performance during training, drills and war time conflict. However, caffeine in a small tasty mint is a recipe for disaster.
Ed Hardy King Dog contains 36 mints per tin, much more than the dieter needs to consume in one sitting. While the dieter can choose how many mints to take – the irregular amount of caffeine in each mint could lead to a few problems. One mint contains 22 mg of caffeine. To make things easy why not just take 10 mints, right? Consuming 10 mints is the same as taking one dose No Sleep medicine. You will likely feel the pulse of energy within a few minutes and that energy could reach uncomfortable levels in a short amount of time.
Caffeine is also associated with increased hunger. When the body burns more calories, thanks to the increased heart rate and metabolism, it wants more calories to replace those it just burned. Dieters don’t need more hunger.

- Each mint contains just 22 mg of caffeine.
- The dieter could easily eat too many.
- The mints could increase energy.
Ed Hardy King Dog is not a product we think the dieter should use in place of that fat burner. This product is all about increasing energy without regard for negative side effects. The dangerous amount of caffeine in one tin and the fact that the tin is not child-proof is a bit concerning. If a product looks like candy and contains enough caffeine to physically hurt a child – we’ll pass.
