2-bar Pack of  CAFFEINE.(Simulation2) Dark chocolate (70%) with coffee beans (May contain the traces of nuts) 50g bar. A main ingredient of the most beloved morning drink can be found in leaves and fruits of sixty types of plants. People have been using caffeine since the Stone Age, but the first coffee shops in Europe were opened in 15thcentury in Istanbul. 225 billion cups of coffee are consumed in the world per day (or 26 041 per second). Each cup contains around 85 mg of caffeine so around 192 kg of caffeine is used per day (excluding this chocolate, of course!)

Chocolates, which were first developed to make chemistry sweet and fun, soon became very popular due to the quality of the ingredients which were adapted to the molecule they feature. First edition contains four different chocolates each containing little snippet of the information about the molecule it features as well as the QR code to the 3D representation of the molecule.

This is the first time they are on sale in UK, although they have been featured in the official University of Cambridge cafes.
