Atomic Energy Bites Review

atomic-energy-bitesA month ago, I wasn’t really aware of the existence of energy chews on the market.

I knew about energized mints, gum, chocolate pieces, candy bars, and even potato chips.  Now all the sudden my mailbox has been ambushed by two different energy chews in a few weeks time.

Since Hydrive Energy Chews were the first energy chews I’ve ever had, let’s see how these brand new Atomic Energy Bites compare!

Taste

Opening up my first package of Atomic Energy Bites, my taste buds took a defensive stance, bracing themselves for an assault.  As soon as the first chew entered my mouth, before it even hit my tongue, my tension unwound.  It became immediately apparent that these chews kick some serious ass!  With my first package I forgot to even pay attention to the energy effect.  Make no mistake; these chews are a premium candy treat.  They’re a whole level above what Hydrive has to offer.  Even better, there’s 5 scrump-dittily-umptious flavors:

  • Lemon Lime – Key lime pie!
  • Fruit Punch – Fruit punch!
  • Orange Raspberry – Rumba Energy Juice!
  • Cinnabomb – Atomic Fireball hard candies!
  • Mocha Crunch – I hate coffee!  But I’d bet good money on this flavor tasting wonderful to coffee lovers.

So seriously, I’m not being lazy with the flavor comparisons.  This is literally what the flavors taste like, they’re astonishingly identifiable.

Ingredients

Every 3 bites will deliver 100mg of caffeine, 25mg of guarana, and a few hundred percent of your B values to your system well under the radar.  You can purchase Atomic Energy Bites in packages of 3 or 6.

Effect

We’ve got a little life lesson here: it’s nearly impossible to have the best of everything.  There’s always a negative somewhere to accompany every positive.  These bites just don’t quite cut it for me, even when I gobble up the larger 6 pack.  Maybe if you’re a caffeine lightweight you’ll be happy with them.

Verdict

So in this informal energy chew dual, Atomic Energy Bites destroy Hydrive Energy Chews in the taste department, while Hydrive Energy Chews offer energy that the Atomic Energy Bites just can’t keep up with.  Now go forth and be an informed consumer.

    They are giving out free samples with a small shipping fee of $.79 on their website. They are really good. I like them because they don’t make you all shaky like energy drinks!

    I’ve just tried one orange raspberry bite now have to say the taste is great but I can’t say with one bite I’ve felt any kick whatsoever in the 15 mins and it’s pretty late here.
    Of course trying to eat 3 chewy candies that are so sweet might do it but I don’t know if I’d venture to personally.

    Atomic Energy Bites are really tasty. The thing i like about them is that you dont have that instant energy and then the crash. They gave me a long lasting energy without the feel of tons of sugars and gitters.
