First Energy Gum is the superhero of the chewing gum world! Within 10 minutes, you are provided with an unbeatable energy boost that helps stay alert. Instead of a cup of coffee or energy drink, take two First Energy Gums for a sugar-free and long-lasting energy boost.

The only distinction between Red and Blue Mint is the taste. Red Mint has a filling with a hint of pomegranate, while Blue Mint immediately triggers a mint explosion. Now you may be wondering what a pomegranate tastes like!? We describe it as an energizing sensation that turns into a refreshing mint experience after a few minutes. So, if you like a colorful adventure in your mouth, choose Red Mint, but if you want to taste mint immediately, go for the cool Blue Mint with its blue filling.

How to use?

Did you know that First Red Mint works so fast, you'd almost think it had super power? 99% of the caffeine in FIRST is absorbed into the bloodstream through the cheek mucosa within 10 minutes. Therefore, you don't have to keep chewing the gum longer to feel the effect. That means you have more time to enjoy the clean energy boost and extra focus that FIRST provides. So leave that coffee and chew FIRST, the super-powerful gum that improves your day in a flash!

Keep in a cool and dry place.

Recommended amount

The effect of caffeine varies from person to person. It depends on caffeine sensitivity and body weight. European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) research has shown that the effects of caffeine are noticeable from 75 mg of caffeine.

FIRST is manufactured in Europe and has been approved by the EFSA. EFSA concluded in scientific research on the safety of caffeine (2015) that an intake of up to 400 mg per day does not pose a health risk. This is consistent with the findings of the FDA, Health Canada and the Dutch Nutrition Center.

Warning: High caffeine content (1667mg/100g). Not suitable for children, pregnant or breastfeeding women and persons sensitive to caffeine. Do not consume in large quantities. Excessive consumption may cause laxative effects.

Erg blij mee

Het geeft me een oppepper na de lunch, toch wat frisser dan een kopje koffie. Is het ook verkrijgbaar in de supermarkt?

Zeker! De gum is ook verkrijgbaar in de Albert Heijn, Albert Heijn to Go, Jumbo en SPAR supermarkten. Je kunt de verkooppunten hier vinden:

Kas van Os
Toch maar geprobeerd!

Zeker een top product. Je merkt dat het sneller in je bloed terecht komt en geeft een fijne kik.


In tegenstelling tot wat hier beweerd wordt, zijn de kauwgompjes juist goedkoper geworden. Teruggerekend naar de oude kauwgompjes kost 1 kauwgompje met 80 mg caffeine (2 stuks nu dus) 0,36 per stuk.

Dit was voor heen 0,60 per stuk (5 stuks kaugwom van 80 mg voor €3,00.

Helemaal top dus, en daarnaast een handig meeneemzakje.

Zo oneerlijk is Mark nog niet
