What You Should Know
Java Pop is a caffeinated lollipop that tastes like coffee. We found the product on a caffeine retail website, but it is also listed on the official website of the McJak Candy Company. This is the company responsible for the lollipop. The candy company does not bother to list the ingredients in the caffeinated candy, so we searched elsewhere and managed to find them after a few short searches. The caffeinated lollipop contains nothing more than the basic lollipop ingredients, coffee and caffeine, but that’s what you’d expect from a caffeinated candy.
List of Ingredients
- Corn Syrup
- Natural Coffee Flavor
- Natural Flavor
- Artificial Flavor
- Artificial Colors
If all it takes is a quick lollipop in the mouth to reduce fatigue, we’re not sure why the world hasn’t hopped on the Java Pop. The Java Pop ingredient list is simple. The sugar, water, corn syrup, natural coffee flavor, natural flavor, artificial flavor, artificial color and cocoa are all part of the lollipop. The caffeine is the only added ingredient. Caffeine has been the subject of numerous clinical trials. It can improve energy and focus and spark metabolism. Caffeine is not the only proven weight loss aide, but it is one of the most versatile.
The delivery system of the caffeine is probably the best selling point of Java Pop. As you suck on the lollipop you get a constant stream of caffeine. There may be quite a bit of calories in the pop (110), but the slow and steady caffeine delivery is going to keep energy levels up for the entire time you’re eating the candy and for up to four hours after.
When it comes to dieting, the dieter may not want to intake the extra 110 calories of pure sugar. Sugar can cause glucose levels to rise, causing a natural energy rush of sorts, but after that rise the levels will fall and that could cause hunger and cravings for more carbohydrates.

Java Pop is a novelty caffeinated candy. If you find a lollipop when you’re out and about it could be a good source of coffee flavor and caffeine, but it also is a great source of sugar. The 110 calories in one lollipop is more than the dieter probably wants to spend on a non-food item, but it could be a simple snack with a kick. This product will not increase weight loss or metabolism enough to show on the scale.
