Mpower Energy Mints

Today I will be taking on another contender in the energy mints category, Mpower Energy Mints.  Mpower stepped up the caffeine, let's see how they do in the reviews.



The Look:  This is my least favorite part about the Mpower brand.  I just don't get the packaging on them.  It is done in a mostly turquoise color with just white and black lettering.  It just looks so plain to me.  They need to change the color in my opinion.

Taste:  Popping one in my mouth I am greeted with a nice strong mint flavoring.  It is pretty good if you like mints.  The only real downside to these mints are about half way through them they start to fall apart in your mouth.  The texture is just weird when it starts to crumble, luckily the taste remains the same.
(7.5 out of 10)


Does It Work:  This is where Mpower does really well.  They crammed 120 mg of caffeine into each one of these things.  Along with the great amount of caffeine we also get a crazy amount of B12 (16667%) and a good dose of B6.  We get all this with just 6 calories and 1 carb.  You can expect to get a pretty good buzz from one of these and if you want to really pick up the energy take 2.

Overall Thoughts:  So I am pretty impressed with Mpower.  They could work on the packaging a bit but the taste and the buzz are very good.  These would be great for school or anywhere you don't want to drink an energy drink.  Plus not only do you get a good buzz from one of these but you get fresh breath, that is a win win situation.  You can check them out on the web at: MPower Energy Mints

Yeah, there is nothing like mini thins disguised as mints.

Um, my mini thins days are over.

Have not tried them so can not speak as to taste, but the packaging you show is Very Very lame for something proclaiming to be an energy booster. Bazooka bubble gum wrappers have more going for them.

You would expect something that depicts (sp?) speed or busy.... something like that.

Will get some for my wife as she is a teacher for younger kids and it might help her keeping up with the kids during the day. LOL
