@zippyus Yeah, the initial flavor is good, but then it fades to caffeine bitterness, but if you hold out a little longer, the bitterness fades and you’ve got a muted mint flavor (with the mint gum, of course.)
It’s not bad. I bought spearmint and peppermint the last time. It didn’t seem to wake me up much, but then again, I drink a thermos of coffee every day. I’m probably having too much caffeine as it is.
I bought the mixed berry last time. It’s a blast of delicious fruity flavor. That fades quickly and you’re left with… I dunno… dirt and some kind of poison? It really tastes awful after that initial burst.
On a more positive note: one piece is enough to give me a comfortable, steady wakefulness. Nothing crazy, but a nice boost on a rough afternoon.
There is no way there is as much caffeine in these as they say. I shoved 6 of these motherfuckers in my pie hole at work one day and didn’t get as buzzed as I would if I had downed a monster drink. The peppermint ones aren’t bad though.
For some reason, I thought to myself this might taste like the old Gatorgum(Blood Orange anyway) but no, it is disgusting. My sister likes it though. I think she is genetically programmed to suck on caffeine all day. She hates coffee but pops 200 mg caffeine pills like they are tictacs. Maybe this will cut down her consumption a bit.
Personally, my caffeine intake can vary from zero to hundreds of milligrams per day and I never notice the difference. I also have to drink ridiculous amounts of alcohol to notice the slightest buzz and I am not even hugely overweight anymore. My life sucks hard basically.
I guess I got a good deal. Two Saturdays ago I bought three each of the trucks, spinners, earphones and the caffeine gum for $30. The trucks are nice. All I really wanted was the trucks for Christmas. I can give the other things also. I don’t think I’ll give my three grandsons the gum. Their mother would kill me by cramming it down my throat. The boys are hyper enough, especially when I fill them with candy and send them home. Oh, the joys of being a grandpa. lol. I lay off caffeine. Does anyone want four boxes of the peppermint ones?
The single most on-the-mark writeup yet. Thanks for not doing that when you offered this stuff when I bought it, as I would never know how totally accurate you were being this time.
For those that have not tried this gum, you don’t have to. The writeup tells the truth.
@Jonas4321 this write-up made me emit sounds that caused concern with my dogs. Was really a great joint effort.
Wish Meh could sell THC gummies, I’d be all over it…even just CBD gum. Caffeine? Why??? Coffee is soooo much better than TMJ-Dysfunction causing gum. Also, titanium dioxide as a nanoparticle causes autoimmune diseases (its outlawed in the U.K.) Just sayin…
What’s the legality of stocking up on this and giving it out at Halloween. I mean if Meh wants to help my neighborhood kids I could be their fence for all the melted candy corn, caffeinated gum, and failed fidget spinners. Or at least fleece it to all I find at my local PokeStops.
OMG, this is probably among the worst things on the planet you can ingest! “Maltitol… xylitol, sorbitol, …artificial flavors… caffeine… sucralose… titanium dioxide, resinous glaze, carnauba wax… fd&c coloring.” What’s next, plutonium gum?!
I’ve been chewing this gum a couple times a day for a week now. I don’t usually partake in things with caffeine so this stuff has given me close to 6 hours of energy per piece if I had to guess.
As far as the flavor goes the mint ones are good for the first couple minutes. The pleasant mint flavor is immediately followed by what I am describing as what Tylenol tastes like if you chew it up instead of swallowing it like your supposed to. I assume this flavor is the caffeine and l-theanine leaving the gum. I can’t decide if this nasty Tylenol flavor fades away or if I just get used to it but the nastiness only seems to last 5-10 minutes.
Then there is the texture. Pop a piece in your mouth and it’s hard and crunchy for the first few bites until your saliva turns it into chewing gum. Continue chewing for a few minutes and the gum gets very soft and nasty feeling in your mouth. It feels similar to what happens when I chew regular gum for too long and it starts to dissolve in my mouth. If you can handle the nasty softness of the dissolving gum in your mouth for another 5 to 10 minutes it slowly reverts back to what gum should feel like in your mouth; chewy. It remains chewy for the rest of the time I chew it. I’ve been chewing a piece for approximately 2 hours before I spit it out.
I’m going to buy some more. It has been keeping my coworkers in much better moods and it has been making me super hyper and probably slightly more annoying than usual. I approve of this product
After about 30 seconds, this gum tastes SOOO BAD - but I’ve actually gotten used to it, as stupid as that sounds. Plus, it doesn’t contain soy. For those of you with a soy allergy, you realize how incredibly rare that is. I’m happy with my first purchase last month and I’m buying me some more!
I badly want some more of this stuff. When mine ran out I went to amazon looking for more, any brand, and the price is ridiculous. This was an outstanding bargain! Would LOVE to see it get offered again.
