While putting together the recent post on on Caffeine Content I was quite interested in the data listed for the energy drink Clearly Canadian daily ENERGY .
At 4.0 mg per ounce it didn’t seem to be that high. Most of the coffee drinks were higher. Then again it may be that in a larger total volume there would be an overall higher total of caffeine. But even then a double espresso would be fine and no need for sugar. So what is it with Clearly Canadian daily ENERGY ?
The conclusion I thought might work is that as “Canadian” we couldn’t have it over-the-top. It needed to be low-key if was to remain “Clearly Canadian”!
Talking to a friend on this he thought that if we had too much caffeine we as Canadians might be unable to be diplomatic, reserved, and always apologizing for our actions. We might become too assertive to be “Clearly Canadian”!
