What You Should Know
Jitterbeans is a caffeinated chocolate candy that tastes like coffee. The main caffeine source in the candy is coffee beans, thus the coffee taste. The official website offers a complete product description, ingredient list and the ability to buy the product from the site. One whole box of Jitterbeans supplies 180 calories and 600 mg of caffeine. Eating the entire box could lead to extreme jitters, shakes and heart palpitations.

The ingredient list for Jitterbeans is nothing more than candy with coffee and guarana. The candy is a simply chocolate recipe with cocoa powder, chocolate and sugar. The caffeine content is another story. There is enough caffeine in Jitterbeans to supply the dieter with stimulation for about one week. The 600 mg of caffeine per box is also extremely dangerous. The average dieter may not be used to taking huge amounts of caffeine and if they consume the entire box of Jitterbeans without reading the caffeine content they could find themselves suffering what feels like a heart attack. Caffeine increases heart rate and blood pressure in excessive amounts, so dieters with heart problems or disease of any kind should not use Jitterbeans. Caffeine is also a diuretic and in large amounts can lead to severe dehydration.

Jitterbeans is not a weight loss supplement – it is an energy supplement. The energy supplied by Jitterbeans comes from straight coffee and there is a lot of caffeine in this candy. A strong stimulant weight loss supplement contains about 200 mg of caffeine per serving with a maximum serving of twice per day. Jitterbeans contains 600 mg of caffeine in one box.
There is no appetite suppressant in Jitterbeans so the dieter may notice increased hunger if the box is eaten a little at a time. If the entire box is eaten at once, there is a good chance the dieter will not feel hunger at all and may feel extremely nauseous. Dieters should be extremely cautious when using Jitterbeans.
