A couple months ago I discovered 24, by Jolt, and that gum works well and has little aftertaste, but I need usually six pieces--half a pack. I recently found Stay Alert on here and bought a lot of it. It arrived two days later. It costs about $1 for five pieces, so about 20 cents a piece. Each piece is twice the thickness and twice the strength of a piece of 24. Depending on how sleepy I am, I find that if I chew one or two pieces, within a couple minutes I'm feeling fine. It's much cheaper than buying coffee. I like the fact that the packaging is much simpler and cheaper and eco-friendly than 24, and it packs easily into a pocket or bag.
The only bad thing is that after a minute of tasting sugar and cinnamon in a nice burst, there is about fifteen minutes of tasting the bitterness of the caffeine (ever got a no-doze pill stuck in your mouth?). Then that pretty much goes away, and there's an acceptable but mild cinnamon taste thereafter. Stay Alert has a much more unpleasant aftertaste than 24, but it's stronger and a bit cheaper. It may work a bit faster than 24, and more of the caffeine may be entering the blood stream from the mouth, rather than the stomach. What that might do to the mucous membrane, I don't know.
In any case, it is literally a life saver, because it always wakes me up when I'm getting sleepy while driving. Highly recommended for truckers and travelers. The caffeine isn't good for you, but probably this is better for you than drinking the coffee, and it's sure cheaper.
Being a college student, I'm often up very late (either for studying or for more fun activities) and have to get up very early, so this has been a lifesaver when I'm about to fall asleep during a test or important lecture.
Be sure, though, that you follow the directions EXACTLY. You're to chew ONE piece for FIVE MINUTES. The first time I used it I'd already had a few cups of coffee in the morning and I popped two pieces in my mouth. Unfortunately, I started shaking and my hands were twitching for more than an hour. It wasn't scary (actually, a rather amusing experience) but if you need to be at work or driving, BE CAREFUL.
The taste is great and really does not have anything funky going on like all of the other chewable caffeine product on the market (I have tried them all over the last fifteen years). This gum is better than any pill because you get instant results and no jitters or overdose feeling. Just a perfect clean alertness.
If this company ever goes public I want in!!!
Thanks Stay Alert!!!!!!!!!
I used it sparingly, only when I had no choice; I took naps whenever I could, and Stay Alert saved my behind several times on this trip. This stuff really works. And Amazon has it for the lowest price I've seen online.
It has a cinnamon flavor which is acceptable, but not the best. But then again, you don't chew this for the flavor. When you're tired but you need to keep going, you don't care about flavor; all you care about is staying awake. This stuff will get you over the hump.

Real talk. The game isn't the worst thing I have tasted, but it does have a bad after taste. I usually spit it out after 5 minutes and then go spit in the sink. Read morePublished 1 month ago by TheHBIC
