Energems -- Great Tasting Energy: Review




Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
 Energems are a revolutionary product in the energy industry, created by CEO Brian Street to spice things up a little. He was looking to create an energy based food product that had more to offer than bitter, tasteless energy shots or calorie-packed energy drinks. There wasn't much in the way of food, so what better way to introduce a tasty alternative than through chocolate! Energems are designed for an on-the-go, busy lifestyle, and for anyone who does not want to compromise taste for a kick. 

Energems are milk chocolate, hard-coated gems (think HUGE M&M's) containing a unique energy blend, along with caffeine and Vitamin B12. At only 15 calories each, you don't need to worry about your waist while consuming this dietary supplement. Energems are great for providing that extra boost that you need to get through your daily activities, whether it be work, school, or fitness. They provide a heightened sense of concentration, focus, and stamina. The great thing? Unlike energy drinks, you can control the number of Energems you consume to change the "dose of energy" that you will receive. It can be hard to figure out serving sizes in energy drinks, and they don't save as well. With Energems, you can just eat a few and then save the rest for later, without having to worry about refrigerating or losing fizz. 

One serving is three gems, which is comparable to one cup of coffee or one standard energy drink. There are three servings of gems per box, and you can consume the whole box for maximum energy. If you think about it this way, you are getting a great deal; you are paying the price of one standard energy drink, but you are getting the energy enough for three! Energems are manufactured in the United States, and are guaranteed to be high-quality, with an authentic taste. Their size makes them convenient for storage in your car, your purse, or your desk at work.

Energems come in three great flavors: mint, peanut butter, and chocolate. Although they vary by a few ingredients per flavor, here is what you will receive in the "Chocolate" variety of Energems:

(PER SERVING - 3 per box) 45 calories, 2g of fat, 8g of carbohydrates, 9mg of Niacin, 12mg of Vitamin B6, 120mcg of Folate, 150mcg of Vitamin B12, 0mg of sodium, 325.5mg of Proprietary Energy Blend (D-Glucuronolactone, Taurine, Caffeine, Suntheanine)

Milk chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, chocolate liquor, whole milk powder, lactose, soy lecithin, salt, vanillin), sugar, energy blend, gum arabic, artificial coloring (Red 40 Lake), confectioner's glaze. Contains soy and milk and may also contain peanuts. 





 I was lucky enough to receive one box of each of the Energems' flavors to review. You all know that I love to review new energy products, because I practically live off them in one way or another now. If I am not downing coffee, then I have an energy supplement close by to get me through the next exam. With my lifestyle, Energems are extremely convenient, because I can store them in multiple places, unlike bulky energy drinks that can get warm and gross. I liked the idea of Energems, because sometimes I would rather savor my energy, rather than choking it down. Many things do the trick for me, but I have to follow them up with water or soda to get rid of the taste. I didn't find myself having to do that with Energems.

I wouldn't lie and say that Energems are comparable to a handful of M&M's. They do have a nice milk chocolate aspect to them, but you can still taste the "energy" blend. I actually prefer chocolate to mint or peanut butter in most cases, but for Energems, I felt the opposite. I felt that in the peanut butter blend, the energy aftertaste was most masked, and these tasted the most like "candy" to me. The mint flavor also masked any aftertaste well, and also made me feel like I had freshened breath afterwards. The plain chocolate flavor was my least favorite, but that's probably because I am very picky with my chocolate. Overall, I would definitely mark them superior to most energy drinks in terms of flavor. It was nice to be able to snack on something and get energy at the same time... sometimes when I am studying it is good to trick my brain into thinking I'm eating something substantial so that I won't end up consuming too much junk food throughout the night. 









I liked that the Suntheanine in the Energems counteracts the jittery feeling that I sometimes get from standard energy drinks. When I take an energy supplement, I am looking for that element of concentration and focus...not something that will make me high-strung and nervous. I felt only a slight Niacin rush at first, when I ate three Energems, and then I finished off the box (since I was in the midst of exam week). I felt energized and was able to concentrate on my work better. I did not experience a crash, which is good, because sometimes people associate chocolate and/or sweets in general with the crash aspect. I did not feel the rush lasted as long as other energy shots, but I guess that is the trade off. 

Right now, Energems is offering a great deal if my blog post appealed to you -- a $1.00 Off Digital Coupon that is redeemable at Dollar General and other retailers nationwide. You can purchase Energems on Amazon, or at a number of stores, including: Christmas Tree Shops, Barnes and Noble, Sunoco, 7/11, etc. You can also buy Energems in various quantities directly from their website: a 3-pack variety is $8.50, a 6-pack is $17.04, a 12-pack is $32.39, and a 36-pack is $91.49. The more you buy, the greater the deal for the individual packages! In store, these retail for just $2.99 a box. These would make great stocking stuffers, or gifts for teams or classrooms. After I received my Energems to review, my mom actually sent me a pack (without knowing), along with other goodies to prepare for my week of tests. Great minds think alike, I guess. :)
