Koru Energy Strips Review

I have had and used Koru strips for months now, but never got the chance to review them until today. Where can I start? I like the packaging, but there are only 4 strips and a sticker in each pack. It would have been a little nicer if the strips came in a package like the Listerine strips or the Diablo strips, but they come packed the following way:


The taste is sweet, minty and refreshing. It does have some bitterness to it, but it is not as bad as the Diablo strips or some bitter-tasting energy shots on the market. Not much else I can say about the taste.


The strips work pretty good. Though there are only 40 mg of active ingredients per strip, the delivery is quick and a jolt of energy comes in within minutes. The jolt also comes with a very focused feeling, which lasts for about 20-30 minutes. The energy kick does not last very long, but you do have 4 strips per pack for a total of 160 mg of active ingredients. Mine started to wear off within 40-50 minutes, but I just popped another one in my mouth and life was good again.

Ingredients: maltodextrin, hydroxypropylmdethyl cellulose, water, triethyl citrate, sorbitol, flavourings, sweeteners, color.

Cost -$3.00 from King of Caffeine
Taste - 6.5/10
Energy - 4/10 to 9/10 depending on the number of strips

Overall - 10.5/20 to 15.5/20...depending on how many you take
