What You Should Know
Shock-A-Lots is a coffee bean candy with quite the caffeine punch. The product is developed and sold by the Shock Coffee company. Shock Coffee sells the candy in case quantities, so we assume they don’t get a lot of individual order requests. We believe this is a product that consumer can likely find in coffee shops and specialty stores. The cost of 12 bags of the candy is $11 – so the markup can be pretty high in the right market. However, if the consumer wants to purchase Shock-A-Lots they can do so without breaking the bank.
The official website for Shock Coffee has a product page for Shock-A-Lots, but that page is not very informative. There is no mention of how much caffeine is supplied in each pack and we found no nutrition label.
List of Ingredients
- Coffee Beans
If you take a coffee bean and you roll it in chocolate and cover that with a candy shell you will have a Shock-A-Lot candy. We love the fact that this coffee bean candy comes from a coffee shop, but we are not thrilled with the lack of product information. Shock Coffee tells the visitor how they can use the product, but they leave out any nutritional information the dieter could use.
Before making a purchase, the dieter should know how much caffeine is in each pack and how many calories are supplied per serving. There is no sense in using the product if it is packed with an extraordinary amount of calories. The box tells us that one bag is the same as one cup of coffee, so we assume that’s 80 to 100 mg, but there is still no nutritional information.
- Shock-A-Lots is relatively inexpensive.
- The product is available on the website.
- Contains caffeine which will increase energy and mental focus.
- Consuming the product could lead to overstimulation.
- The product does not aid in weight loss.
- The candy looks like a child’s product.
- Shock Coffee appears to only sell the product in case quantities.
Shock-A-Lots is nothing more than a chocolate covered coffee bean. These products are highly popular in coffee shops, which is likely the place you will find this product. The business can order Shock-A-Lots in case quantity and pay less for the case if the product is auto-shipped. This is clearly not a candy Shock Coffee packages for individual sale to the consumer via the website.
The caffeine content is not revealed in the product description. There could be more than 200 mg of caffeine per package or only a trace. It is best to find out just how much caffeine is included per serving before eating then whole bag.
