For the past several months, Amanda Fitch and her husband, Matthew, have been generating quite the buzz from a business they started on a whim right in their own kitchen.
Tired of drinking endless energy drinks, coffee and diet soda to stay vitalized throughout their busy day, the twosome experimented with adding caffeine to their favorite snack -- popcorn -- as a little afternoon pick-me-up.
What eventually popped up was BioFUEL, tasty, caffeine-infused popcorn meant to give fatigued folks a jolt whenever they need it most.
"A regular bag of BioFUEL has as much caffeine in it as a strong cup of coffee," Fitch told AOL News. "It's sweet, salty and loaded with energy."
Here's how it works: Fitch said each bag of BioFUEL is loaded with a special, top-secret "proprietary blend" of all-natural ingredients, including caffeine derived directly from coffee beans. However, the popcorn itself tastes nothing like a cup of Joe, so therein lies the mystery.
"It took us a really long time to figure out how to get the caffeine into the popcorn without it tasting bitter. We tried over and over again, making tons of different batches in our kitchen until it finally tasted good. We worked really hard figuring out the formula, so we can't share all the secrets," Fitch teased. "But there are no preservatives in there at all, it's all-natural."
