I was sent a sample size of Bikini Ready Energy gummies for free for review purposes by Influenster.com. Review is honest and my own thoughts
So In my Influenster Voxbox I recived a sample of Bikini Ready Energy gummies. The sample only came with 2 gummies, which is a one day serving of vitamins.
What Is Bikini Ready?
Bikini Ready Energy Gummies are a b-12 Vitamin Supplement in gummy form. I practically inhale B-12 so I was excited to receive a sample of this product! For those of you who don't know. B-12 is a natural energy booster that can help boost your metabolism as well! (with a healthy diet and regular exercise of course)
The packet describes them as a "guilt free, pick-me-up" which is true considering that a daily serving (2 gummies) is only 20 calories, and contains 3g of sugar, and 4g of carbs. I do believe that taking b-12 in other forms is lower calories/sugar/carbs. However this is a good alternative for the chewy vitamin eating crowd.
The daily dose is equivalent to a 4th cup of coffee (20mg of caffeine) which is good for a small pick me up, but I don't think it will really help you all that much. (for the record: Im not saying to take more then the recommended dose but in the past iv'e taken like 8 servings of B-12 for those days when you just can't)
I the first gummy surprised me because of the texture and taste of the gelatin was not as suspected. It looks a lot like a sugary gumdrop but the texture was different, not like other gummies I have tasted. the taste was surprisingly Bitter. In the past when I've taken B-12 dissolving capsules they taste similar to 5 hour energy. I think its the mixing with vitamin and artificial flavoring that goes sour for me. The after taste is really bad and made me want to drink water or brush my teeth after. (however I did brush my teeth about 45 min before writing the review and hadn't eaten anything else, so maybe that affected it? I don't really think so because I drank water in between but this is an all-honesty review) The Orange one tasted a little better then the purple and after the initial bitter aftertaste the orange taste was okay. (tasted like orange zest)
It did give me the energy boost as said on the packaging. So that's good
Now the honesty:
I like the gummies concept, and with multivitamins, but it doesn't transfer well with Bikini Ready, manly because of the taste. However if your not someone who can take other tablets this may be a nice way to consume b-12. I also think the name "Bikini Ready" Is a bit misleading. It makes you think that it helps you loose weight when it is really just an energy booster to help you get more energy during work outs, so you can loose more calories. More activity and energy leads to a faster metabolism. The packaging is cute and $14.99 is not a bad price for gummy vitamins, so if your interested in a chew able B-12 option you can try out bikini ready, but I would just opp for a dissolving tablet from a different brand which is usually cheaper and better for you.
Would not recommend :(
