"Healthy" Caffeine replacement?

Tonite I made the decision to cut out soda.
Now that I have cut out soda, I need a replacement for my caffeine fix. Id start drinking soda at 8am and stop around 5pm (for work. then come home and drink more). At work (8 hours) I normally drink between 12-15 20Oz bottles of mountain dew a day (I did the math, thats 3300 cal and 924g of sugar alone on soda. At 275 cal a bottle., and 77g of sugar each bottle it adds up quick.
I have now switched to water. A few times at work we ran out of mountain dew (being my fault) and I drank around 5 1.5 Liter bottles of water (yes I drink a shitload at work). Anyways, I was fine with that, but I didn't have the constant energy that I had when I was constantly drinking soda.
Anything I can eat or drink thats healthy to give me the boost? I work at a chain drug store so if there is any vitamin that will help (does anything work as quickly as something like soda) let me know.

Americano's at Starbucks are very low in calories and they will get you wired. maybe try a diet energy drink?

Tea. Black has the highest amount of caffeine I believe.

jesus man, you are insane. why don't you just drink diet soda? if you are insistent on cutting out carbonated drinks (if so, why?), go for coffee/tea. if those don't float your boat, i guess you could just take caffeine pills and drink water. or maybe you should just ween your addiction to it (or at least cut back substantially) and get energy the proper way through a balanced diet and exercise.

Ive heard that diet soda is just as bad, if not worse for you than regular soda.
As for caffeine pills, how much is a "safe ammount"? Are caffeine pills safe?
MD has 55mg in a 12 ounce can. so i had around 1100mg of caffeine in md during the day.
I love my caffeine

your concerned about drinking and eating "healthy", yet your trying to find ways to get a caffeine fix. Why not work on trying to drop caffeine? Its not good for you either, and your not going to find much of anything with caffeine that can be called "healthy".

That..plus a bunch of other chemical nonsense that's horrible for you, possibly makes you hungrier and basically just sucks all around.

Best = tea.
Next = espresso-type drinks without other shit in them

Can make some people hungrier, the "horrible for you" part is pretty much totally unproven.

you can actually buy coca leaves at flea markets and such. one of my buddies shipped a bunch back from central america. gives you a very little boost and makes your tongue go numb. the percentage of cocaine is miniscule
