Wired Waffles For Caffeine Powered Athletes

31 Jul

I used to be addicted to caffeine. I don’t mean that I simply liked a bit of caffeine in the morning before work—I mean that caffeine was a major part of my life right up till the time my doctor told me I had to cut way back on the stuff. Apparently no one has a 12-step program for caffeine addicts (but they ought to). Now the only caffeine I consume is when I am cycling because that wonderful drug improves endurance and I need every bit of help I can get on a long ride! Last week I reviewed BikeLoot, a subscription service that sends a box of five to seven cycling related products to your home every month. In the July box of “loot” there was a sample of Wired Waffles, a delicious caffeine-infused food product that makes for a great pre-ride snack.

Wired Waffles are 3.5 inches (7.6cm) in diameter, one-inch (2.5cm) thick and they weight 2.5 ounces (71 grams). Each waffle serves up 200 calories and includes 200mg of caffeine. The list of ingredients includes: Flour, Sugar, Eggs, Trans Fat Free Margarine, Water, Butter, Pearl Sugar, Bakers Yeast, Cinnamon, Potassium Sorbate, Baking Powder, Salt, Citric Acid, and Enzymes.

Wired Waffles come in several flavors, including Cinnamon, Chocolate Chip, Sweet Sugar and Bacon Maple. The sample that was included in the BikeLoot box was Bacon Maple and to be very honest I did not like the flavor. However, the waffle was moist and had a great texture so I decided to take a chance and order a box of the cinnamon waffles from Amazon.com. The cinnamon waffles were wonderful! These waffles are best if heated up, so I just popped the waffle in the microwave for 20 seconds and it was perfect. These waffles are not intended to have butter and syrup poured over them—just pick them up and eat one on your way to your bicycle!

In case you were wondering, 200mg of caffeine is the equivalent of two 16-ounce cups of McDonald’s coffee or a little less than one 2-ounce 5-Hour Energy shot. Since I now only consume caffeine while I am cycling I’ve noticed that it seems to have a greater impact on my alertness and endurance that it did before.

Wired Waffles sell for $30 for a 12-pack and come with free shipping in the United States if you order from the Wired Waffles website (and they will ship overseas for an additional fee). They also sell a variety 12-pack that has three waffles in each of the four flavors.

    Interesting concept, I like having caffeine whilst riding as well. Maybe I should introduce coffee into my home made energy bars ;-)

      I love caffeine, but I hate coffee! The Wired Waffles seemed like a great way to get my caffeine fix for the day.

    What a great couple o products. I got too busy and missed the review of Bike Booty, but will look that up. Wired Waffles might be the perfect pre-ride food for me, being a caffeine junky, myself. Thanks for the info.

    Am I missing something here or do they seem pretty expensive? I like Crackingfelt’s idea.

      Expense is all a relative term (based in part on my being to lazy to try to make something like this myself). However, in their defense, they do taste great are are about the same price as Bonk Breakers (one of the other prepackaged cycling food products I love).

    Thinking…what if one of my boys got ahold of this waffle before school? Bet I’d get a call mid-morning. “Your son just WON’T stop talking!” Oh wait! That’s a distinct possibility even without the waffle…

      We had three sons and they did not need any caffeine get in trouble — they were born that way!

      They are REALLY good about keeping in touch with you by mail! They will send you a tracking number when the box ships so you will know when to expect it.

    In different years I’ve given up meat, sweets, and TV for Lent, but the hardest thing I ever did was give up caffeine one year. I think it’ll take a doc’s order to get me off of it again.

      I stopped caffeine “cold turkey” for a few weeks and now only take a bit when I am riding. For the first few days I was off caffeine my wife hid all the sharp objects in the house and had 911 on speed dial!
