KingofCaffeine.com, today's review is on Raging Bull Energy Candy. This is a lifesaver looking piece of candy directly from China that calls itself an energy drink in a candy.
The Look: Raging Bull Energy Candy comes in a box about the size of a pack of cigarettes. All the writing is in Chinese except for a sticker in English which contains directions and ingredients. Inside each box there are 12 pieces of candy wrapped in some seriously strong foil (seriously I could not open these with my hands no matter how hard I tried, I had to resort to scissors). Maybe in the strong man contest they can have them rip open one of these instead of a phonebook.
(7 out of 10) I bumped it up a notch for the stickers in English
Taste: I don't read Chinese so I have no clue what to expect from the flavor of these. After I got into the Fort Knox like packaging, I was met by something almost identical in shape to a Lifesaver. I popped it in my mouth and was greeted with a surprisingly pleasant chocolate taste. They taste like instant hot chocolate smells. I honestly thought these were pretty tasty.

Does It Work: Luckily they posted the little English sticker on the side so I know what is in these. Inside each piece there is: taurine, 80mg of caffeine, lysine, niacin, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12. After eating one of these I got a slight awakening but nothing impressive. So after the first one I had a second one. When I finished the second one I felt a bit more awake but still nothing really impressive. I thought these were pretty tasty but I am slightly disappointed by the buzz inside. I finally ended up having 3 of them total and got a pretty nice caffeine buzz from it.

Overall Thoughts: These are a great idea and they are different from other things out there. Even if you have to eat 3 like me, these come to a hell of a deal (3 dollars for 12 of them). I thought the flavor was pretty good and so did everyone else who tried one that I shared with. You can find these from my good friend at KingofCaffeine.com. For the price I think these are worth checking out. As always, please let me know your thoughts or comments.
