NRage Energy Strips: Like Listerine But With Caffeine
NRage Energy Strips have recently hit the market. Like a combination breath freshener energy drink, the strips melt in the mouth rather than being chewed and swallowed.
According to NRage:
“What’s so cool is that the ingredients are absorbed through the cheeks and gums which is the fastest way to the bloodstream rather than the gastrointestinal tract as with all other products.”
NRage claim four strips equal the caffeine content of one typical energy drink. We put the average energy drink at 80mg caffeine – so one NRage strip equals ~20mg caffeine.
The strips aren’t without controversy. Co-founder of NRage claims that college students refer to the NRage as the “Strip Without The Drip” (src). We’re not talking about a tap dripping here – but presumably an IV drip – another drug connotation (right on the back of the Cocaine Energy Drink hype).
UPDATE: NRage aren’t the only ones. Canadian-based Hydratech also make cranberry flavored energy strips.
