Caffeine drinks have been popular and profitable. So, the Wrigley Company is trying to cash in with a caffeinated gum.

The gum is called "alert energy."

Wrigley says each piece has the same amount of caffeine as about half a cup of coffee or a 16-ounce soda. It will be in some stores next month.

Each pack will list the ingredients and have a warning label about caffeine.
