Mocca Shots from Seattle Gummy Company are claimed to have the highest concentration of caffeine of any confectionery product on the market: 100mg – the same amount you’d find in a regular cup of coffee.
Seattle Gummy Company says its Mocca Shots are unique to the market and provide consumers flavour, convenience and performance all in one powerful gummy.
The company uses patented technology to mask the bitterness of the caffeine (that’s a caffeine molecule illustrated above, in case you were wondering) while bringing out the flavour of dark chocolate – so they actually taste good.
The caffeine in Mocca Shots is absorbed five times faster than from other products because they are absorbed through “mouth mucosa,” bypassing the normal digestive process and going directly into the bloodstream. So it improves focus and alertness while reducing the caffeine jitters. The technique is similar to the concept of holding an aspirin under your tongue during a heart emergency – absorption is fast.
The Mocca Shot gummies come in twin-packs so anyone can conveniently carry the equivalent of two cups of coffee around wherever they go – and not need to worry about spilling either the coffee or the lollies!
Dr Connie Wan, CEO at Seattle Gummy Company, describes the functional gummy delivery as key to masking caffeine’s unpleasant taste and anxious side-effects while improving absorption and bioavailability.
“This allows you to feel the caffeine kick within minutes of taking the product.
“Feedback we get confirms the science behind Mocca Shots,” says Wan. “Customers love the clean, energy feeling and are amazed at how quickly and effectively Mocca Shots work when they are painfully fatigued or need to be productive.”
The company is selling trial packs of the Mocca Shots High Energy Gummies online for just US$9.99.
