    According to the APA's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, some people can experience caffeine intoxication symptoms -- including restlessness, nervousness, excitement, insomnia, flushed face, and gastrointestinal complaints -- after ingesting as little as 100 milligrams of caffeine per day. At levels of 1,000 milligrams of caffeine per day, symptoms may include muscle twitching, rapid heartbeats, abnormal electrical activity in the heart, and psychomotor agitation.

    Start reading the labels of some of these products, and there are bound to be a few shockers for you. The following is not a complete list of products containing caffeine, but it includes many you would find in a typical supermarket.
