Barq’s does indeed have bite.

Okay, so I’ve been trying to cut down on my caffeine intake in the last week. I’ve been tapering off over the past few months, but I decided to cut it out for good. I’ve started taking Adderall (Astro Moondoggie, speed freak) and it’s a stimulant anyways. I figured best bet would be to cut out the other stuff.

What’s a good non-caffeine alternative to Coke? Why root beer, of course!

You see, all of the root beer I’ve ever had has been caffeine-free, so I’ve always just assumed that all root beer is. Not so, say the makers of Barq’s root beer. Remember those “Barq’s has bite” commercials? Apparently the bite is from caffeine.

So, for the past week I’ve been patting myself on the back for limiting my Coke intake, all the while slugging down the Barq’s one can after the other. Idiot. Now, if some store would just start importing my beloved Thomas Kemper’s (this would be a link if their site wasn’t so crappy), I’d be set. Especially if they started importing the grape soda too. Mmmm… heaven…
