Tasty Treat Review- Energems + Giveaway!

Bite-Sized, Hard-Coated Gems With Caffeine, & B-vitamins.
I received 3 boxes of Energems to try and review last week and they came just in time. My sleep schedule has been very good (maybe too good) I have been going to bed between 8pm-10pm and getting up between 4am-6am so when noon comes around I am in need of a pick me up. With noon being a very busy time for me I don't want to take a nap and usually am too into what I am doing to go and get a cup coffee or soda to get my caffeine fix so I found these to be very handy to just have in my purse or at my desk.

Anyway, a cup of coffee for me (about 4.5 oz) from my home coffee maker is 60-100 mg of caffeine and there is 75 mg in one 3 piece serving. I have used them at noon for the past week and found 1 piece is not enough, 3 is too much but 2 is just right for me.
They have 3 flavors to pick from, I tried all 3.
There is Mint, Peanut Butter, & Chocolate.

As soon as I opened the package they sent I could smell the mint one. I was most excited for that one so I tried it last.

I went with chocolate first, it was alright. I thought it would be a more creamy milk chocolate but I think I had M&Ms in mind.

The second one I had was the peanut butter ones and I was not excited, I hate peanuts. These oddly are my favorite though, the creaminess of the peanut butter I think gave them the creamy chocolate texture I was looking for in the chocolate ones.

The mint ones... after these I felt like I had brushed my teeth with energy! They were not as good as the smelt, like most vitamin candies there was a chalky aftertaste and the mint ones had that. The chalky aftertaste wasn't the worst I have had but it was there. The chalkiness wasn't too much to stop me from getting them again though if I could not find the peanut butter ones. I think these ones would be lovely chopped up and made into chocolate mint energy cookies!
Overall I have to go with the peanut butter ones for the winner of taste. They all do the same thing and since the flavor doesn't linger (which I think is a good thing) it really does matter to me which I munch on. I am happy with the energy it gave this past week and the less calories vs. my creamer filled coffee and soda so I think I will be keeping a pack on hand.
