New frontiers in caffeine

Two words: Caffeinated doughnuts.

Dr. Robert Bohannon, a molecular scientist, says he has developed a way to add caffeine to baked goods, without the bitter taste. Each piece of pastry is the equivalent of about two cups of coffee.

You can't buy the amped up doughnuts yet, but Bohannon says he's been approached some heavyweight companies, including Krispy Kreme, Dunkin' Donuts and Starbucks about carrying it.

And what beverage would be the perfect accompaniment to a caffeinated doughnut? Why, a nice frosty glass of caffeinated beer, of course. You'll never look at breakfast the same way again.
