Holiday Gift Guide: Essential Mints: Energizing Peppermints

Essential Mints: Energizing Peppermints

by Vita ThinQ 

Retail: $16.00

Where to Purchase:

Billy's Thoughts: I'm sure the #1 thing everyone will be getting in their Christmas stockings is probably some sort of candy, gum, and/or mints; thus one of the reasons why people gain so much weight around the holidays.

While setting up this year's Holiday Gift Guide, I got a request to review the Essential Mints: Energizing Peppermints from Vita ThinQ, and of course being a caffeine freak, I had to say "yes."

What makes these mints so special?

Well, for starters each mint has 20mg of caffeine in it, which means 5 mints is equal to one cup of coffee. Plus, 5 of these mints has 20 total calories with 4g of sugar. The mints have been NON GMO Verified!

From my understanding, the caffeine in the mints enters into the bloodstream through the highly vascularized oral tissues, giving you just enough to boost your energy levels.

The mints are available in mini-tins with 20 mints per container ($2.95 per tin) and 80-count tins (available in a 2-pack at $16). Each mint has a red peppermint coating on them.

Overall, the Essential Mints Energizing Peppermints do have a nice peppermint taste with a caffeine kick. The peppermint will stay in your mouth for a long time afterward. I don't recommend chewing on too many of these throughout the day as it will get your heart beating pretty fast after several of them. I recommend taking three to five in the morning and another three to five mints in the afternoon for a quick pick me up.
