Over Caffeinated

The other day at work, my co-worker and I were discussing how we both dislike soda. However he needed something to wake him up, so he decided to have a sip of soda over having coffee.  He couldn’t decide whether to have Coca-Cola or Barq’s Root Beer because he did not know which had more caffeine. So I told him I would look it up for him.

I found much more than I bargained for while looking this up, but like I promised I found out which had more caffiene.

Coca-Cola or Barq’s Root Beer, which one would you pick??

Most companies list their caffeine content levels for an 8 oz. drink, thus showing a lower mg caffeine level. This soda chart has the manufacturer listed 8 oz. size and a 12 oz. scaled up version to reflect what you are really getting in your 12 oz. can of soda.

In short, I found that Coca-Cola has more caffeine than Barq’s Root Beer.  Coca Cola has 34.5mg in just one single 12 oz. can, while Barq’s Root Beer only has 22.5mg in a 12 oz. can.
