5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific product, odd pricing, August 11, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MILITARY ENERGY GUM (MEG) - Military Spec Formula - Used in Military Rations - ARCTIC MINT - TRAY (24 packs - 5pcs/pk) 100mg caffeine/pc (Health and Beauty)
I love this product and most highly recommend it! Unlike the cinnamon version of this product, I cannot taste any of the bitter caffeine taste. The sweet coating and mint flavor are excellent, and the gum maintains a pleasant mint flavor long after the caffeine is gone. By contrast, the cinnamon version completely loses all taste after 5-10 minutes and I want to spit it out. With the mint version, I actually enjoy continuing to chew the gum.

The screwy thing is the pricing: The 24-pack costs $2.00 more than buying four 6-packs ($28 vs. $26), so it's clear they've adjusted their pricing to make money on the "shipping costs." I have Amazon Prime, but instead of "free shipping" it's really "$2.00 shipping." (If shipping was really free, the 24-pack product price would be LESS than $26 because the manufacturer's cost for the tray must be less than their cost for four 6-packs.)

Aside from the shipping cost, it's a great product!

BUT- the shipping for the 6 pack is $2.97 and if you were to buy 4 sets of those it would probably be close to $11 added onto the shipping and such as a good deal as the 24 pk w/ free shipping.
