So far we've seen just about every type of caffeine inducing "shot" but this one takes the top spot. Each AeroShot cartridge contains six to eight puffs of a fine powder composed of vitamin B and 100 milligrams of caffeine. That's enough good stuff to wake you up in the morning, or keep you going throughout your day. The AeroShots are calorie free, and the AeroShot has no discernable flavor.
Created by Harvard professor David Edwards, who along with Tom Hadfield started a company called Breathable Foods. We currently we're enjoying foods mostly by drinking and eating - but now breathing too? Maybe there will be sniffable coffee soon. Expect AeroShots in about 90 days in Boston and New York markets.
