Energems are hard-coated gems made with real milk chocolate. They contain caffeine, B vitamins, and a unique energy blend. Energems were created as an alternative to energy drinks, energy shots, and even coffee. Let’s face it, many of us that need that “pick me up” often need it when we’re on the go. We don’t always have time to grab a drink. I don’t know about you, but a lot of those drinks also made my stomach hurt, too, which is why I started looking for alternatives long ago. I was definitely intrigued by Energems!
For my review I received three boxes of Energems – one for each flavor. The three flavors are: Chocolate Charge, Mint Fusion and Peanut Butter Blast. They all sound good, right? Not only do you get the choice of flavor, but because of the unique nature of Energems you can also choose how much you consume. With energy drinks, shots, or even coffee there may be the dilemma where you have the amount you need but you’re not yet finished. You don’t want to waste it because well, who wants to waste something that cost so much? So you probably do end up with an upset stomach and even the jitters because you had more than you needed! With Energems you can simply eat just one if you need a little energy, but if you determine you need more you can have another one!
3 gems equals one serving, which is equivalent to the caffeine in one cup of coffee or one energy drink. Each box of Energems contains 3 servings – 9 gems total. Each gem has only 15 calories each and less than one gram of fat!
Energems are classified as a Dietary Supplement. As with any supplement, I suggest you always read all information that is included and follow recommended guidelines!
What did we think?
My husband and I both tried the Energems. I would use three each time, but one was always sufficient for him. We are also totally different in that he tends to be more alert and awake in general (he’s a “morning person”), and I have a hard time getting going (I’m a “night owl”). We both noted some similarities in that we did feel increased energy without the jitters. For me, I try not to have anything with caffeine without also having a sufficient meal to prevent upset stomach, and although I was sure to have something to eat, I did notice I could have a smaller meal and still not get an upset stomach.
We both noticed improved energy, and I noticed I was better able to focus and just had an overall better awareness. I’ve been so tired I often feel like I’m “in a fog,” and with Energems I definitely didn’t feel like that!
I like that there are flavor options because I could mix it up. The Peanut Butter Blast is my favorite, but I am always a fan of chocolate and peanut butter. The Mint Fusion is also nice for that mint chocolate taste. Of course, if you love chocolate you may just prefer the Chocolate Charge. I do love their slogan “Energy Never Tasted so Good” because it is definitely fitting!
As I mentioned, Energems are great for those that are on the go, and I got to put this to the test a couple of times. There were a few days we needed to just get up and go. By the time we get all three kids ready it is time to head out the door! There is no time for sipping on coffee. I simply grabbed a few Energems and headed out the door! They really are so convenient!
I love that Energems do offer a better alternative to energy drinks and shots. Energems contains a natural supplement that may improve memory, focus and concentration as well as counteracts the jitters associated with caffeine. Plus it does NOT contain Phenylalanine which some energy drinks and shots do. Phenylalanine is a major ingredient in Aspartame. Speaking of artificial sweeteners – it doesn’t have any of those either! What a relief!
I would say the only con to Energems is the artificial colors. I am more cautious about artificial colors with our kids, though I prefer not consume them myself, either.
Overall, though, I think Energems are a good alternative to energy drinks and shots. They’re convenient, use real chocolate, and offer a variety of flavors as well!
