What You Should Know
Pepp Energy Gum, incorporated in Greensburg, PA, was founded in 2007 and is a company that has only two people. There is no official website, and all sales seem to be generated online through other energy supplement websites. The product itself, Pepp Energy Gum, reportedly is the highest caffeinated energy gum on the market with 70 mg caffeine-that means that one piece of gum equals one cup of coffee. The three sugar-free flavors of Pepp Energy Gum are Mt. Everest Mint , Costa Rican Cinnamon, and Odessa Orange. The gum’s low-budget marketing campaign exclaims: “Play now, sleep later” and they seem to target people looking for a quick energy rush rather than those who are looking to lose weight or boost their metabolism, although these may be inadvertent effects. In order to tap into the weight-loss and dietary supplement markets, Pepp Energy Gum has added theanine, arginine, and vitamins b6 and b12 to the ingredients. While Pepp Energy Gum claims to deliver long lasting energy and even longer lasting flavor, user reviews suggest the contrary. According to one user (one of the only ones available online), the gum apparently has a gritty, powdery texture that gets tough to chew within 20 minutes. For those looking to purchase Pepp Energy Gum, bulk quantities are available through distributor websites and the average price of a 10-piece pack is around $2.50.

Pepp Energy Gum is still in its infancy as a company and there are only three flavors. Also, shabby marketing efforts and lack of an official website do not speak well of Pepp Energy Gum’s reputation. For those looking for a convenient, quick energy boost, Pepp Energy Gum boasts 70mg of caffeine, making each piece the equivalent of a cup of coffee. For added healthy features, the gum incorporates vitamins and other dietary supplements and is sugar-free. The gum is not marketed (as of yet) as a diet aid or supplement.
