Enter Stay Alert gum!
C. Nekritz
The sweet coating and cinnamon flavoring covers the bitter caffeine taste reasonably well, though not nearly as completely as the Arctic Mint version of this product.
Mathew Roberson
Better and faster than a good cup of coffee for me.

I've developed a terrifying habit of getting very sleepy while driving. I've never had an accident, but I avoid driving at night, and even in the daytime staying awake can be difficult. If necessary I pull over and nap or exercise, but that takes time. I've tried taking along a quart of coffee, but that's a bother. Buying coffee can work, but it takes time, and there isn't always a source of coffee near at hand.

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.

I am currently working on my third tray of Stay Alert, I have one a day at about 3pm. It keeps me going and makes it so I don't get crabby from not having enough coffee (I drink eight cups every morning). It only takes five minutes of chewing to feel great again, I have shared this great product with my family members who also are coffee addicts like myself. Sometimes if I have to leave quickly to an emergency and cannot get any coffee in my system I chew one piece of gum in the car. I have Stay Alert stashed all over the place: In the center console of my car, on top of the microwave, at my desk, in my nightstand, in my earthquake kit, and in my tool kit. It's like having extra batteries for your flashlight.

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!!!!!!!!!

This gum has 100mg of caffeine in it, which is approximately equivalent to one cup of brewed coffee. However, it works MUCH faster.

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.

I brought some of this with me on a long car trip this summer. From experience I know that when my head starts nodding, I have but a few minutes to pull over and take a catnap, or become a danger to myself and others. Trouble is, there isn't usually a place to pull over right away--the nearest rest area is often a half hour or so away (and on some state highways there are none at all). Not a problem with Stay Alert! This time I popped one piece, started chewing, and literally within a few seconds my head stopped nodding and I felt exactly as though I had taken a nap. I was wide awake. The effect stayed with me for 2-3 hours, and by then I was able to find a rest area and take a nap.

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.

This product is effective, but the taste is so horrible that I threw it all out. It is worth stating, I can endure nearly any taste if I feel I have a reason to, and with the expense of this product and two full trays... I had a reason to. Unfortunately, I found that I could not bring myself to chew this for the full five minutes recommended, since the taste got more and more bitter with every chew. Considering the many other options I have for caffeine (including Jolt Gum which is entirely palatable), I will not be buying this again.
