|two mint blister pack|
Being honest, I was a little surprised when I first tasted the mint. For some reason, and maybe it was sub-conscious, I was expecting a pepper”mint” or a spear”mint”, or something to that nature. That is not what I got. I still tasted a strong minty flavor but pleasantly enough, it had a hint of sweetness to it; almost fruity. I was thinking to myself, “man, this a pretty good!”. There was no grittiness or bitterness to it like some caffeine products are known for either. Since it was pretty late in the day I figured I would have a good opportunity to test out the claims of the energy blend. I was somewhat tired after long day at the office and the kick I got from just one mint perked me right up. The other claim, that it lasts 8 hours, would soon be put to the test. Revive had to coin the term “microencapsulated caffeine formulation” (which I copied from their website). But basically, what it means is that it is a sustained release caffeine product. Claim two proven true! I am not sure if it was exactly 8 hours or not but it lasted me the rest of the evening and then some.
Overall, I was very impressed with the flavor, kick, and duration of this product. Since it comes in a two-pack blister pack (what I have at Caffeinedaddy.com) it is reasonably priced as well.
