Caffeine test strips?

Would you care to know if your de-caf coffee at a restaurant is actually (perhaps accidentally) caffeinated? There's a product out now called d+caf test strips, which will actually tell people who are a little more.. strict about their caffeine intake, whether or not a cup of coffee has any caffeine in it. You can buy a pack of 20 for $9.95. Apparently it's main purposes are to test coffee and tea at restaurants, that claim to give you caffeine-free versions. I guess these products are for the sticklers who insist on their drinks being caffeine-free. Perhaps because I love my caffeine, I would never really care to buy these in the first place. But I'm wondering if there's anyone truly out there who abhors consuming caffeine so much that they would actually buy a TEST strip? And not trust the restaurant or label on the drink they're buying? What do you think?

wow - I hadn't heard of these until now! I typically drink things with caffeine in them so I guess I really wouldn't ever have a reason to buy these. Maybe when I'm older and don't need the caffeine or can't have it? lol They seem a bit expensive to me though for what they simply do and well I also think that sometimes you're better off not knowing. HAHA but I guess if you definitely needed to be drinking something caffeine free then these would be a great product for you!
