The Look: The samples I was sent are in little cardboard the contain 2 chews each. Each package has the products name of Livewire Energy listed on the front and each box is a different color depending on flavor. Also on the front they have the flavor listed and the caffeine amount is listed (wahoo, I always love when a company puts the caffeine content on the package). Flipping the package over there is an ingredient list, usage instructions, and nutritional information. These little boxes have a nice packaging and the portability factor is a plus.

Taste: There are 4 different flavors and each tasted quite unique. The chocolate one and the mint chocolate were amazing and I suggest you give them a try.
Chocolate: This is one of my 2 favorites of the flavors. This had a very good chocolate taste to it and there is no weird caffeine or vitamin taste. Almost remind me of a Tootsie Roll.

Mint Chocolate: Next to the chocolate my next favorite was the mint chocolate flavor. I really enjoyed the chocolate and mint combo. This flavor of this one reminded me of a Starburst meets a peppermint pattie.

Citrus Mango: The citrus mango had a nice orange taste to it. There is a slight amount of wax taste involved with the orange but it still tasted very good.
(8 out of 10)
Pomaberry: Pomaberry was my least favorite of the 4. The flavor was good but it had that slightly wax like flavor that the orange did. I would still choose the Citrus Mango and the Pomaberry over a bunch of energy shots I have had in terms of flavor.

Do They Work: Not only does each variety have a different flavor but there is also a different caffeine content in each one. The caffeine strength ranges from 90 mg - 120 mg. Along with the caffeine inside each chew there is also taurine, panax ginseng, and multiple B vitamins. On top of the fairly nice energy blend there is also 20 calories and only 3 g of sugar in each chew. All of these packed a nice punch that hit me within about 5 minutes. The score is just based on 1 chew but if you chew 2 of them prepare to be fairly wired.

Overall Thoughts: Livewire is a very good chew that delivers in taste and performance. You can pick up a sample pack like the one I had for only 5 dollars from the Livewire website(that will get you 8 chews which is a good value). Give Livewire Energy a try and let me know what your thoughts are.
