Sometimes I like to get energy but I don't want to drink 8,16, or 24 oz of an energy drinks. I have a few products that I usually reach for on those days. Foosh Energy Mints are such a great way to get caffeine when an energy drink is not available or not practical. Here is my review of Foosh Mints.
The Look: Foosh Energy Mints comes in two different size packages. There is a cardboard 6 count package as well as a 12 count metal tin. Both of these containers look nice and give you all the information you could need. On the front it states "1 mint = 1 cup of coffee". Then to elaborate even further it states "seriously caffeinated" under that. Flipping either container over there is nutritional information as well as a description of Foosh. I really like the fact that these containers are so small you can take them anywhere.

Taste: They taste just like a mint. Not a weak peppermint candy you find in the candy bowl but a serious mint like an Altoid or something similar. If someone had just given one of these to me I wouldn't of even known there was any caffeine in one. I think they did a really good job of covering up the caffeine here.

Does It Work: You wouldn't think these little mints would be strong, but you would be wrong. Each sugar free mint is packed with 100mg of caffeine as well as a small amount of vitamins. I have tried these on multiple occasions and each time the effect is always good. Sometimes when I am really tired I can grab one to have on my drive to work (nothing like arriving to work awake and with fresh breath). I have also used one when I go to take a test at college (Nice to have the caffeine it seems to help me concentrate without going overboard on energy). These would also be great for any place you didn't want to have to carry around a drink.

Overall Thoughts: This is a great way to get your daily caffeine. Even in the 6 count pack there is 600 mg of caffeine available to you in a tiny package you can take anywhere. Really this product has so many things that make it a great choice: convenient size, 0 sugar, 5 calories each, affordable, etc. I I know that ThinkGeek carries them and you can also them out on the web at: Vroom Foods. I recommend this product highly and suggest you should get some and see for yourself.
