gummi bears oh how I love thee. I know some people have a weakness for chocolate, but I have a weakness for gummi bears (gummi worms too). When I heard that they made caffeinated gummi bears, a tear almost formed in my eye from joy. Today we will be looking at Loud Truck Energy Fueled Gummies. These are gummi bears with an attitude.

Taste: The flavor is labeled as Citrus Blast on these gummies. That is a pretty good description. I would say the flavor is mostly orange with a hint of other citrus in there. There is a slight almost medicinal taste in there (maybe from the caffeine) but it is not bad at all. Honestly these taste just a like a gummi bear.

Does It Work: So each 1 oz pack of gummies contains 60 calories, 13g of sugar, 375% Vitamin C, niacin, B12, Taurine, 32mg of caffeine, and a few other energy producing ingredients. So I finished off each gummi bear (biting the head off first and the eating the rest, don't judge me...), there were 10 in total in the package I had. As you can see there is not a large amount of caffeine in the bag, but it is a pleasant addition to such a great candy. The energy amount is equivalent to about what you might get out of a Coke or Pepsi. What I find best to do with these are to eat them with an energy drink or something else caffeinated because by theme selves they don't do much.
Overall Thoughts: I don't really mind that these don't give you some super human energy. I am just happy that companies are starting to think outside of the box and learning that caffeine does indeed make everything better. You can check them out on the web (and even see the new packaging) at : Loud Truck Gummi. I like the idea behind these a bunch. Sure I wish they had more caffeine in them but I am very glad to accept them for what they are: a delicious snack with a bonus of some added caffeine.
