Warp Green T Lemon-Lime Energy Mints Review

Recently I received several tins of Warp energy mints. I will start off by reviewing the tin of Green Tea mints.

The first thing I noticed about the tin is its shoe-polish-like tin design with the twist stubs on the side. Twisting them will, of course, open the tin. You can open it without using the little device on the side, but it is very difficult.


The mints are pretty tasty. The sour lemon-lime taste jumps at you at the very beginning and stays there until the mint is gone. There is a slight hint of green tea, but it doesn't fully reveal itself until the very end when I chewed on the mint. I don't think think a lemon-lime taste qualifies these candies to be called mints since there is no mint. Regardless, the mints are pretty good and there are no signs of energy ingredients.


There is no caffeine content on the tin, but after a brief search on the internets, I found out that each mint contains 10 mg of caffeine, which is not much, but when you have a tin-full they have potential. I took 5 of them and felt the effects shortly. They are quite similar to the initial high from an energy drink, but unlike energy drinks, the high lasted for about 40 minutes. The kick comes in fast and there are no jitters or a crash at the end. On the plus side, there are dozens of these mints and 50 mg can easily become 500 mg.

Ingredients: sugar, dextrose, citric acid, natural and artificial flavors, green tea, malic acid, calcium stearate, ginseng, guarana, fd & c yellow 5, blue 1

Cost - $3.00 from
Taste - 9/10
Energy - 1/10 to 10/10

Overall - 10/20 to 19/20...depending on the number of mints you take
