Energems Chocolate Energy Bites {Review} #ad

Monday, March 17, 2014 Posted by Dina N

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

At first glance, Energems looked to me like jumbo m&m candy - or would, if such a thing existed. I would not eat them by the handful, though. They might look like candy, taste like candy but are, in fact, a creatively presented dietary supplement. One serving of three gems packs a caffeine kick equal to that of a cup of coffee or a typical energy drink. I never cared for energy drinks but I love (almost) all things chocolate, so an energy boost made with real milk chocolate sounds pretty good to me.

In addition to caffeine, Energems contain B-vitamins and a proprietary energy blend. I enjoy coffee but usually limit my intake to a cup or two per day. I found Energems work best for me mid-morning, when the effect of my breakfast latte is wearing off and I start wishing for a darkened room and a soft pillow. Since I don't consume a lot of coffee, I can really feel the caffeine kick of these gems. I was a little worried that I would not be able to resist them and would gobble up an entire box in one sitting - did I mention they had chocolate? While I find it difficult to just have one, a single serving of three is enough for me. I like the taste and flavor but there is a bit of an aftertaste that I don't enjoy. One handy little box contains nine gems, or three servings. They come in three flavors: chocolate, peanut butter, and mint. Although all three are made with milk chocolate, the plain chocolate is my favorite.

Three pieces of Energems have 45 calories, 2 grams of fat, 8 grams of carbs, and 7 grams of sugar, according to the label. They also pack almost half of the daily value (DV) of Niacin and six times that of Vitamin B6, about a third of the DV for folate, and 25 times the DV of Vitamin B12. As with all dietary supplements, of course, check with your doctor before using, follow usage recommendations on label, and remember that this product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.

Energems are available at more than 20,000 retailers nationwide, as well as on Energems.net. You can download a $1 off coupon for Energems from their website.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers. All opinions are my own.

    These are so cool, I'd love to try them. I haven't seen them anywhere, but I wasn't really looking. I would probably want to have them by the handful, though!!!!

    these sound really good. I'd like to try the mint ones. Yummy!

    So, three would be a proper serving? Hard to stop with that candy like look! Mint sounds good!

    They might make for a nice P.M. energy boost, I'm thinking!

    I would love to try these. I have noticed lately I don't have much energy during mid morning and afternoon. I think these would really help.

    I got a free sample of the peanut butter flavor a few months ago.... I love them. They wake me up, but don't make me jittery like no doz or energy drinks

    Thanks for the review, I think I would like one mid morning for that boost of energy as well.

    I also tried the peanut butter sample but it didn't taste that great so maybe another flavor would suit me. Tasted a bit bitter to me. -Deb

    I think I'd only try these in the morning. I'm really sensitive to caffeine.

    I like everything chocolate, so I really want to try these (especially the peanut butter flavor). Thanks for the review!

    I could use some energy so maybe these are something I should try. I'm ot real fond of some of the energy drinks but I think I'd love these

    These sound interesting and for some the chocolate would appeal to them alot! Now myself I wish they made stuff like this like say in pizza flavors :)

    Yeah, I don't consume much coffee either! These do look like those NEW M & M's that are larger. Interesting!

    I am not a big coffee drinker! But instead of coffee, I can see myself trying these in the morning to give me a little kick and make me alert. I like that they are flavored.

    I do love chocolate. I don't drink a lot of coffee and never drink energy drinks. I would like to give these a try for an extra kick of energy.
