Cracking the Ice: Is There Caffeine in Ice Break?

Are you tired of being told that caffeine is bad for you? Do you love chewing gum and wish it could give you a buzz? Have no fear, because Ice Break has got your back! But does this delectable treat really contain caffeine? Let's delve into the science behind this icy phenomenon.

Cracking the Ice: Is There Caffeine in Ice Break?

What is Ice Break?

For those who may not have heard of it or live under a rock, let's start with introducing what Ice Break actually is. This Australian born - now available worldwide - brand began as just a range of mints and extended to include gum flavors over time. It’s extremely popular due to its minty fresh flavor that "gives back" by providing an ice-cold feeling which refreshes breath and helps get rid of unwanted odors.

The Mystery Behind Caffeine in Gum

Just when we thought swallowing coffee pills was as strange as it gets, here comes caffeinated chewing gum. The big question on everyone's mind though is; how does one manage to add caffeine into regular-old-ordinary-devoid-of-caf gu-um??

We promise not to draw out the suspense any longer.

The answer lies in coating each piece with 35mg of purified caffeine.

Unbeknownst to many, caffeine can be absorbed through tissues other than our stomach linings e.g., cheeks/buccal area (insert fancy technical jargon!).

The company claims this delivers the 'mintier' freshness while also giving off an instant-energy-buzz but still doesn't explain why some people swear they feel more alert after consuming only four pieces within a space of twenty minutes..(Don’t say we didn't warn ya!)

But Does Ice Break Really Contain Caffeine?

Yes. We're done here!

Or are we...let us elaborate further just for the sheer fun of it (also this would be a pretty short article if we left it at that).

There is truly no doubt in the world about Ice Break containing caffeine. It's even stamped directly onto every pack, ffs!

One theory goes; certain brands (we shall not name) have two versions: one with added caffeine and one without (duh!).This company however only has caffeinated gum, which makes sense given its claims to giving us all an extra oomph.

We've all heard those rumors about how some gums are injectable or how this particular brand offers toothpaste for dogs but when it comes to Ice Break, what you see on the label is exactly what you get plus a dose of caffeine!

Caffeine Overload

You would think by now we'd know better than to eat too much candy- even as adults - but while there are bigger problems taking place in our beloved planet Earth, here's a little-known fact:

Two pieces of Icebreakers gum equate 1 cup coffee.

While chowing down six pieces in under an hour will make you feel like Hulk after getting pissed off for being called "little buddy". And sure, we might fall asleep afterwards due to pesky withdrawal which can affect various people differently (wink wink) but let’s just pretend that didn’t happen…

With that being said..if anything positive was born out of 2020 other than bringing families together...we present-

Get ready folks. You thought Starbucks sizes were overwhelming? Here’s presenting…. :drumroll: The Coffeinated icebreaker chart!!

Number Pieces Consumed Caffeine Intake
1 2 35mg
2 4 70mg
3 6 105 mg
4 8 140 mg
5 10 175mg - aka “Hulk Smash” level

Stay safe and within moderation people, we don’t want to hear of Ice Break Anonymous meetings (between us all though, same time here next week? Just me?)

The Science Behind Caffeine

Caffeine is a naturally occurring stimulant that's included in the methylxanthine class which happens to stimulate your central nervous system. Typical sources entailing caffeine include many soft drinks,certain pain relievers, coffee etc. It can enhance energy while reducing the drowsy state known as fatigue.

The perfect balance between work and life seems impossible but consuming caffeine improves productivity!

This chemical works by naturally mimicking adenosine – A neurotransmitter which has calming effects – instead of binding with this compound like it usually does when our bodies are tired..caffeines interfere with this process thus creating unstoppable energy levels in its host..

In short: You chew some ice breaker gum ->Caffeine finds cool channels through your mucous membranes-> Attaches itself onto adenosina receptors-> Boom! Reduced sleepiness.Bam! Boosted Achievement!! Pow! Hulk Bravery!!!

We're totally kidding about that last part...Or are we?- Let us know at @GetYourEditorOnlineSorryNotSorry

Should you be worried?

Experts suggest having no more than 400 milligramsof caffeine per day (approximately four cups of coffee), unless medical staff suggests otherwise i.e., if someone's taken half an eye-opening pill before ten am already, they might not require any other means of providing stimulating effects due to personal differences.

Therefore there’s really nothing wrong with commercialized caffeinated products such as Icebreakers chewing gum since their contribution will likely hardly make a dent on one’s intake numbers; things only appear problematic when a whole foreign substances brew too steadily inside us over long periods of time.

In conclusion, enjoy your icebreaker gum as much (or little..whichever floats your boat) as you'd like it, and know that there can definitely be worse things to indulge in under the sun...(diet coke for one). Just watch how many pieces you consume!!

Remember "Moderation - the key to life!"

Sorry not sorry all parties involved but hey! we told the truth didn’t we..
