If you’re not a fan of high-calorie energy drinks or coffee, Energems are a must-try. Developed by Boca Raton resident Brian Street, the bite-size energy and vitamin supplements are low in calories and taste like M&M’S.
Available in milk chocolate, peanut butter or mint flavors, these supplements pack caffeine and B-12 vitamins.
One Energem is only 15 calories. A serving of three pieces contains 45 calories total and 325.5 milligrams of a caffeine-energy blend. Just be careful not to eat more than three, or you’ll be wired into the night.
