It’s May, which means you’re frantically cramming a semester’s worth of notes days before your last final. You’re at the home stretch, but a simple cup of coffee doesn’t satisfy your stomach after decimating your stash of Pop Tarts and Cup Noodle Ramen. What does a hungry college student have to do to get some energy after pulling an all-nighter?

Einstein Bros. Bagels has us covered with their lifesaving menu item: the Espresso Buzz Bagel. Each bagel contains 32 milligrams of caffeine, which is about one-third of what you’d typically find in your cup of coffee. Doesn’t sound impressive? Pair your caffeinated pastries with an actual cup of joe and you’ll be set for the next couple hours.

Is your commute between classes keeping you from eating in the morning? Just grab this bagel and you can get your coffee fix while satisfying your growling stomach. Einstein Bros. Bagels never made the phrase “2-in-1” sound so good.

According to Fox News, Einstein Bros. has been working on the recipe for almost nine months. Kerry Coyne, Einstein’s senior vice president and head of marketing research and development, told Fox News about how the ingenious idea came to be and what went into the process.

We have watched the coffee category expand and adapt as Millennials converted to coffee drinkers, attracted by the smoother flavor and artisanal characteristics and third- and fourth-wave coffee.

We knew our culinary team could deliver that same premium, hand-crafted sensory experience with the beloved category hero of espresso in our best-in-class, fresh-baked bagel.

Although this Colorado bagel chain is keeping its exact recipe under wraps, Fox News reports that the caffeine stems from both espresso and coffee-cherry flour. As an added bonus, you also get a bit of protein from the cocoa in the recipe, creating the perfect blend of bitter and sweet flavors. If you want to test how much of a boost these bagels will give you, you can look for a location near you.
