Two months after unveiling its Alert Energy caffeinated gum, and shortly after the Food and Drug Administration announced an investigation into products with additional caffeine, the folks at Wrigley have decided to pull the gum from store shelves, for now.
Back when we first heard about Wrigley’s Alert Energy Caffeine Gum, the company was adamant that it would be marketing the product to adults and adults only. But now that the new gum is on shelves, as of this week, the Food and Drug Administration is taking a closer look at how such easily ingested forms of caffeine could affect the health of young teens and children.
My husband and I were at the Cubs/Brewers game at Wrigley Field last night. At the door we were surprised to be given WaMu promotional string backpack/bags. This was in addition to the announced promotion, Carlos Zambrano bobbleheads.
Well, hey, the song is catchy. The Chinese certainly seem to like it. —MEGHANN MARCO
