What You Should Know
Mad Croc Energy Gum is an energy product from the Mad Croc company. The same general formula of energy is provided in three forms – drink, gum and soft chew. The gum contains 40 mg of caffeine per piece and 10 pieces per blister pack or up to 20 pieces per box. The official website does a great job of explaining what is in Mad Croc Energy Gum so the consumer doesn’t have to guess about ingredients or caffeine intake. There are four flavors of Mad Croc Energy Gum to choose from – Peppermint, Citrus, Spearmint and Cinnamon.
Mad Croc Energy Gum looks like any other gum product. The word energy is on the pack, but a child may not understand what that word means and simply think the gum is candy. While one piece is not likely to cause harm, it is not safe to leave Mad Croc Energy Gum out around children.

There are quite a few ingredients listed for Mad Croc Energy Gum. Most of the ingredients are used to create the gum that carries the caffeine. You will find many of the same ingredients in just about every gum product – but this one has taurine and caffeine as well to boost energy. There are also a number of B vitamins in the mix to optimize energy production and use, but these are also available in most foods and multivitamins.
Caffeinated gum does have some advantages over other caffeinated energy products. One of the advantages is the rate at which the caffeine is absorbed. Caffeine is absorbed in the mouth first when you chew the gum and then in the stomach when you swallow saliva. You get an immediate energy rush followed by a low energy roll; something energy drinks cannot provide.
The caffeine in Mad Croc Energy Gum is enough to boost metabolism, but there are other ingredients missing from the product that dieters need to look for in a supplement. Chromium, for instance, suppresses appetite. There is no appetite suppressant in Mad Croc Energy Gum.
- The ingredients are listed online.
- Contains 40 mg of caffeine per serving.
- The gum looks like any other pack of gum.
- You could take too much caffeine if you chew the entire pack.
Mad Croc Energy Gum is a typical energy product. The company is a lot bigger than other companies we’ve reviewed in the same category, but that doesn’t mean the gum is any more effective. The 40 mg of caffeine supplied per piece of gum is enough to boost focus and energy slightly, but it will not have a strong effect on metabolism.
