The Best Part of Waking Up - INHALABLE Caffeine?

By — One of many True Story blogs on

On the heels of last week “Swallowable Parfume” announcement comes an innovative new way to perk up in the morning, “AeroShot” is new product that will allow consumers to INHALE their caffeine.

Delivered in a little plastic inhaler, each AeroShot container dispenses three lime flavored puffs. Though in total these only provide about 100 mg of caffeine – the equivalent of a large cup of coffee – because they are dispensed as powder, they are instantly absorbed into the blood stream and acts much faster than your cup of joe.

Said journalist, Maia Szalavitz of her experience, "I got a dose of seriously sweet lime flavor and found my heart rate and mood lifted in that familiar, caffeinated way — but faster than with coffee"

Said creator, David Edwards, "Frequently, the first time people do it, they laugh…There's something funny about the act, how it happens in your mouth."

Also unlike your cup of joe, the little inhaler packs 100% of your recommended daily allowance of niacin, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 – all known for their importance to brain functioning. And for the diet conscious, “AeroShot” owes it sweetness to stevia, an herb with 300x the sweetness of sugar, but no calories.

Though the thought of people inhaling their caffeine may seem a little IFFY to some of us, because caffeine is a legal substance in foods, AeroShot did not require FDA approval and will be sold as an “energy supplement” at a cost of $2.99 per inhaler, available for all ages to purchase next January.

What's YOUR take on this?

Is inhalable caffeine a good idea?

Would you pick up an AeroShot next January?
