If you’re anything like me and you suffer from chronic insomnia, you probably feel like coffee and tea are the elixirs of the gods. They taste great, they make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, and they help you feel like you’re still among the living.
But what about those unlucky insomniacs out there who can’t get behind sucking down coffee every morning? Thanks to this company, they might finally have a way to combat the no-sleep blues and tell the world, “Hey! I’m a human being who is fully capable of doing human-being things!”
Ladies and gents, meet Power Toothpaste. This is caffeine’s first foray into dental care, and it’s about to make life so much easier on those days when you just need a pick-me-up or two (or 10).
Instead of hovering over coffee pots like real-life zombies awaiting the true kiss of death, users can turn something that they have to do into something that will prepare them for the day ahead.
While this could easily fall into gimmicky territory, the formula is designed to deliver a healthy dose of caffeine through the gums. Because thin tissues in the mouth are ripe for absorption, toothpaste is actually the perfect vehicle for that much-needed morning buzz.
And you don’t have to worry about getting jolted through the roof with crazy amounts of caffeine. This paste is designed with health and safety in mind. In fact, you’ll feel more jittery after two cups of coffee than you will after polishing up those pearly whites with Power Toothpaste.
And if you’re someone who rushes to Starbucks every morning before work, the invention could save you some money.
While caffeine levels aren’t high enough to cause harm if you do decide to continue on in your coffee addiction, you can forego the java and save yourself hundreds of dollars each year. Every tube of Power Toothpaste — which costs $15 — is equivalent to about 90 cups of coffee. Check out that Starbucks receipt and do the math, friends.

Being tired is the worst, so why not add an extra jolt to your morning? My under-eye bags look more like suitcases, so if Power Toothpaste hits the market anytime soon, you best believe that it’ll be chilling on my sink.
