Getting Coffee On The Go

Java Chews helps chewing tobacco users kick a dangerous and addictive habit. However, people looking for chewing tobacco alternatives or tobacco free dip are not our only customers.

For years, if you wanted an energy kick, your only option was brewing a fresh pot of coffee. Go back far enough and that coffee was likely brewed over a fire you had to make yourself. Most of us can’t imagine needing to build a small fire before we even have our first cup. Flash forward to present day and the energy drink market is a hugely diverse space with options for energy shots, drinks, bars, snacks and many more. The energy drink market alone is projected to grow to 84.80 billion by 2025.

Why are there so many alternatives to coffee? Why are there so many different energy products? People like options, although our busy lifestyles don’t allow for the option of just being too tired to power through. Also, different products affect people differently. Some may have too much sugar, many energy drinks have too much caffeine and can cause you to crash and sometimes, it just comes down to how you prefer to get your energy.

Coffee pouches like Java Chews may actually be a more effective option for you to get your energy, for a few reasons. But first, let’s get your questions out of the way up front. What is coffee chew and how do they compare to a cup of coffee?

Each single-serve pouch packs the punch of 1/4 cup of coffee with 24 mg of caffeine. There are 15 pouches per each tin. So, for anyone doing the math, that’s about $1 worth of Java Chews (four pouches) to get the same effect of your average cup of coffee.

There are a few reasons you may want to reach for Java Chews the next time you need an energy kick:


        1) Slow release of energy

        2) Convenience

        3) Diet & Appetite

Slow release: If you use energy drinks or coffee to make it through a long day you are all too familiar with the dreaded crash, when the caffeine starts to wear off and your body is hit with a wave of exhaustion that feels like a brick wall. Why is this? Well there are many reasons, one being sugar which gives short term energy, then wears off. But coffee stays in your system for four to six hours, so why do we feel the crash after a couple of hours and find ourselves going back for more? It comes down to how we consume caffeine. Taking the ‘more is better’ approach to caffeine can actually cause a crash. Research suggests 200 mg of caffeine (about two cups of coffee) is likely to lead to a crash and experts recommend smaller doses of caffeine to avoid this. This can be hard to regulate and varies from person to person, so if you’re a student pulling an all-nighter, and athlete with long days or a long-haul trucker, trying to make it through a long shift, a slow release coffee pouch may be a better option for you.

Convenience: Coffee isn’t always convenient and hot coffee does not always sound appetizing. Imagine you’re a student at Mississippi State University and you’re meeting with your study group in the park. You’ve been up most the night studying and need an extra kick of energy. It’s 90 degrees out, how does an extra-large piping hot coffee sound? In that case, you can always reach for a cold and refreshing energy drink but then you have to worry about crashing. Most energy drinks have high amounts of sugar which can cause a crash. You even have to be careful with the sugar-free options because the caffeine content may be too high and put you at risk of crashing. There’s nothing convenient about needing an energy boost and winding up worse for wear than before. Coffee dip offers a convenient, small dose of coffee on the go.

Diet & Appetite: First and foremost, you should consult a physician before dieting. You should also be sure you’re getting the proper nutrients you need. If you have all that covered, you may have heard coffee is a natural appetite suppressant – which is true, although, there is another benefit from chewable coffee when it comes to your appetite. Many people report eating out of boredom or a feeling they need to have something in their mouth. This is called an oral fixation and it is a huge part of why smoking and chewing tobacco are such hard habits to quit. Studies have shown alternatives to actual food like chewing gum help satiate your oral fixation and avoid overeating or snacking throughout the day. One study, from Louisiana State University showed that chewing gum reduced snack cravings and helped control appetites by addressing this oral fixation. Coffee dip pouches are a two-for-one in appetite control because the coffee suppresses your appetite and just having them between your teeth and gums reduces your cravings for snacks.

There are plenty of ways to get your caffeine on the go, but if you want to avoid the dreaded caffeine crash, with a convenient product that has the added benefit of appetite suppression, you should give coffee pouches a try. Not sure which flavor to try? And if you want the most delicious coffee pouches available, you should head to and try out our French Vanilla, Caramel, Wintergreen or Mocha flavors.
