Don’t get us wrong, drinking coffee is great. There’s nothing quite like a steaming hot cup of joe on a cold winter morning, or finally drinking the first cold brew of the year when the weather decides to warm up. We love the smell of coffee, the sound of coffee, the look of coffee, and (most importantly) the taste of coffee - we are in the business of coffee, after all. But drinking your coffee isn’t the only way to consume it, and we’re here to tell you why you should try eating it instead.
Good news: there are a variety of edible coffee products on the market, from edible coffee cups to our deliciously caffeinated Eat Your Coffee Snack Bars. No matter how you consume your coffee, you’re likely to get the same caffeine bump (arguably the most important part, especially during the midday slump). But there are some awesome benefits that make eating your coffee worth it, like the fact that our energizing snack bars have whole ingredients including dates, nut butters, and oats. And so we present to you: 5 reasons why edible coffee rocks.
1. It keeps you fuller, longer.
Coffee contains certain chemical compounds that act as an appetite suppressant, making you feel full even when you’re running on empty. When you choose to eat your coffee, you get all the nutritional benefits of what you’re actually eating instead of tricking your body into thinking you’re not hungry.
2. It’s much easier to take on the go.
When was the last time you spilled your coffee? Unfortunately, it happens more often than we’d like to admit. One of the best parts about edible coffee is that you can easily throw it into your bag when you’re running out of the house.
3. It’s more nutritious than most coffee drinks.
We all have that one friend who’s a sucker for the most sugar-filled drinks on the menu. Eat Your Coffee Caffeinated Snack Bars clock in with only 12 grams of sugar and 180 calories - far less than a frappuccino, mocha, or caramel latte (and we have pretty great flavors, too).
4. It takes less effort to make.
No need for a cold brew contraption, expensive espresso machine, or fancy one-cup coffee maker when you can just walk to the cabinet and pick up a bar!
5. It’s better for the environment (and your teeth).
Eating your coffee means you can ditch the disposable straws and single-use coffee pods. Go on and start saving the world, one step at a time. Plus, no straws means no staining your teeth. Definitely a win-win.
