Hello everyone! My name is James Kazimowicz, I'm a frequent reader on Kickstarter Forum and I wanted to share my experience running my first Indiegogo campaign with you all.

I’ve always loved the energy boost that caffeine gives you, but I did not like drinking coffee or energy drinks. So, I had an idea to create a new source of caffeine that does not make me crash after an hour. My partner Rohan and I have worked on an energy gum that contains 60 mg of caffeine, 80 mg of L-theanine, 30 mg of taurine, and 100% of your daily value of vitamins B2, B3, B5, B6, and B12 in each piece.

So here we are, a year later. We have gotten in touch with several manufactures from all around the world, and have since chosen the best suited to make our product exactly the way we envision it. With the help of their amazing chemists, and after countless trials, we have managed to develop our first fully functioning, great tasting energy gum prototype. Once we have completed our first round of funding we will finalize this formula and begin mass production so that you can all try it out for yourselves!

I chose to post about this on this forum because:

1. I would like to get some feedback about our product and/or any questions you might have before we launch production, or any tips you might have.

2. I just wanted to share my experience here as well as the Indiegogo campaign we are running to save up money for mass production costs. You can check it out here:

Congrats on raising so much already.

Probably questions potential backers would ask:
- What does it taste like
- How much caffeine does it have and how many gums could I eat without getting sick...

Thank you!

Our prototypes are mint flavoured and taste a lot better than similar products. By using extra-strength mint flavours, as well as distributing the active ingredients throughout the gum opposed to concentrating them into the outer shell, our manufactures have managed to virtually eliminate the bitter taste normally associated with caffeine.

Each piece of gum contains 60 mg of caffeine. You could theoretically consume an entire pack without getting sick although I would not recommend it.
