They are sending Utica Roasters brand "Wake the Hell Up" coffee to our pilots that bombed and island in Iraq that was home to ISIS fighters. 80,000 pounds of bombs were dropped. Hey ISIS, ya can run but ya can't hide from the best air force in the world.
I could use a boost occasionally and it sounds like that coffee with the extra jolt of caffeine would hit the spot on some days. Years ago I used to buy Jolt Cola when I needed a quick wake-up in order to stay awake when I was driving. They advertised twice the sugar and twice the caffeine. It worked like NoDoz. It had enough caffeine to make you grind your teeth and make you hands tremble if you drank more than one 16 ounce bottle of it.
As much coffee as I drink I am sure that my cardiologist would frown upon me drinking that stuff. I don't need my heart to be racing at warp speed, haha.

I see a lot of teens and young adults drinking those energy drinks. I looked at the labels of several different brands at Walmart one afternoon when I had nothing to do and holy cow the caffeine content is high also the sugar content is really high like 35mg to 45mg sugar. Yikes I would be shaking nervously all day.
I tried one of those Monster Energy drink things just once. Number 1, they are expensive for the size of the can. Number 2 they taste like "number 2." Number 3 they would probably kill anyone with heart problems.
I have read about people who have died after mixing them with alcohol. It is not only risky health wise, it also masks the level of intoxication to the point that a person doesn't realize just how intoxicated they are. It also encourages risky behavior. Hmmmm. Interesting. Risky behavior like kicking a sleeping pit bull? Juggling running chainsaws while driving? Telling your wife that she is fat? My oldest son used to drink Red Bull and bourbon on occasion. Thankfully he is not a frequent or heavy drinker and stopped ordering it after reading about the risks.
