Finally, chocolate bars and vigour unite as one
By Jon Sufrin
Here’s something Toronto doesn’t need more of: caffeine. But it’s getting more of it anyway. Awake, a new chocolate bar from local entrepreneurs Matt Schnarr, Dan Tzotzis and Adam Deremo, provides a solid caffeine kick — about 100 mg of the stuff, which is roughly equivalent to a cup of coffee (a 250mL can of Red Bull, by contrast, has about 80 mg).
But doesn’t chocolate contain caffeine anyway? Apparently, not a whole lot. Which means kids now have a whole new avenue towards chronic hyperactivity. Awake is available for $2.49 at convenience stores and gas stations across the country.
