RATING: 5.2 OUT OF 10.

There are some products out there that fall into the category of really great flavor and little effect, and some drinks fall into the category of mediocre taste, amazing kick. This product falls into the first category. Allow me to introduce you to Gamer Grub. Gamer Grub is a snack mixture that is specially formulated to keep you focused and on your game when you are pwning noobs in Call of Duty. The package is a 3 ounce bag, which is a nice size. The most interesting claim about this product is that it promises no greasy fingers and no keyboard crumbs. They accomplish this by adding a Tear-N-Tilt feature, which allows you to peel back a small portion of the bag, for easy mouth delivery. I tried this and it didn't work out to well for me. It always got clogged with some stupid Pita Chip. The flavor is actually quite delicious and addicting. It tastes just like your average pizza flavored snack mix. They have cheese curls, tomato almonds, sesame sticks, pita chips, fried onions, and pizza cashews. These 6 different foods going into your mouth at once provide a pleasant plethora of pleasing flavors for the palate. Alliteration win! The claim about no greasy fingers is indeed true, you still have residue from the flavor powder but it rubs off easily. Gamer Grub does not utilize caffeine, but rather two neurotransmitters that are supposed to help with cognitive function. They are choline and l-glutamic acid. Gamer Grub gives you a combined 68 milligrams of the two ingredients per bag. Other than that you get about 480 calories, 1,140 milligrams of sodium, 42 grams of carbohydrates, and 9 grams of protein. It also adds some vitamins. I will have to give it a thumbs down for using monosodium glutamate. Monosodium Glutamate is a cheap flavor enhancer, and I tend to avoid foods that have it. So, the real question is, does it work? In a word, no. You most likely have to pair it with an energy drink, which I will try next time. ED Junkie tried it with an energy drink and he said he was owning some serious noobs in Killzone. Oh well, everyone's different. Everything considered, I'd give it a 5.2 out of 10. What ruined was the lack of an effect. But trust me, this is an amazing snack. I actually gave the taste rating a 9.5!
