Run Gum Review

If you are like me, you have heard of Run Gum before. It's everywhere! I have seen it, heard about it but can honestly say I had never tried it. I got an email from Run Gum a few weeks ago asking if I would be interested in letting you all know what I thought about it. Yes! Count me in!

Okay, for those who have not heard of Run Gum or heard of it and really don't know what it is, let's get to it. Run Gum is a chewing gum that is made with Caffeine, Taurine and B-Vitamins. It is pretty much everything you love about an energy drink without the water. Run Gum is zero calories, sugar free and since you absorb the ingredients - they get in your system five times faster than a normal drink. Oh, and it was created by Nick Symmonds and who doesn't love him!

Think about it. How many times have you been an hour from the end of your work day and you start yawning. Then you remember how much you need to do when you get home. A workout, make dinner, a pile of laundry - all of those adult responsibilities. Instead of grabbing a sugary soda or hours old coffee, you can chew a few pieces of Run Gum.

There are a few flavors of Run Gum: mint, cinnamon and fruit. In each individual packet there are two pieces of Run Gum. I like that they are individually packaged like this so I can leave one in my purse. Hey, you never know when you need a pick me up! On the package it is explained that one piece of Run Gum equals a can of soda and two pieces is equivalent to an energy drink.

Since I am usually a one cup of coffee a day person, I tested out Run Gum on an early morning workout. In the summer months the last thing I want after a workout is a cup of hot coffee. I was excited to see how Run Gum could help fill the void. I decided to try the mint flavor.

To my surprise, it just tasted like gum!  After a little bit there was a bit of a strange flavor. Since it is straight caffeine, Run Gum has a little different flavor than normal gum. It wasn't anything bad and it went away after a little bit. I think the thing I noticed the most was the size of the piece of gum. It was a little larger than I expected, so I started chewing half at a time. I didn't miss my beverages at all. It was really nice to be able to cut that out of my already rushed workout morning. If you are someone who really needs that extra kick, I really think you will like Run Gum. I will start carrying some around with me for sure. Like I said, you never know when you will need a pick me up!
