Our LiveWire Review

EnergyFiend was sent some free samples of each flavor to try out. I first tried the Sour Apple flavor and found it to be pretty enjoyable to eat. The chew dissolved quickly and there was just a slight taste of the energy ingredients detected. livewire-energyThe other flavors were equally as good and even the Mint Chocolate did a good job of covering up the bitterness of 120mg of caffeine. The chews contain artificial flavors and ingredients, but I think they could have been improved by going the all-natural route.

A Fast Rush

LiveWire Energy Chews delivered a fast rush of caffeine. Since they are meant to be chewed and dissolved by the saliva in the mouth, much of the caffeine is absorbed before it even reaches the stomach. I noticed a nice lift after about 5 minutes and it increased steadily over the next 20 minutes.


Because LiveWire pretty much tastes just like candy, it could be dangerous if it falls into the wrong hands. A child could easily eat 5 or 6 pieces of LiveWire in a few minutes, which could have severe health consequences. This should be treated like any other OTC medication/supplement and be kept out of the reach of children. Adults would be wise to limit themselves to 3 or 4 chews per day and even fewer if they have also consumed other caffeinated products.
