*Pepper-upper: Something, as a food, beverage, or pill, that provides a temporary period of energy and alertness.
Caffeine is a super pepper-upper, hot coffee in the morning to wake you up or at night to help you with those late assignments. That is it is a great pepper-upper if you aren’t immune to its effects, as someone who has been drinking coffee pretty much all my life I have never felt its pepper-upper effect. Never being able to use caffeine as a pepper-upper has not been fun. Oh well heavy sugar foods will work as a pepper-upper for me.
