Gamer Grub: The Review

*note: this site is not endorsed, nor is it endors­ing this prod­uct. This review is writ­ten by a pay­ing con­sumer.
My girl­friend and I work at a retail­er that car­ries Gamer Grub™. She was the first to try it since the store I work at nev­er received it. It is an inter­est­ing prod­uct, there is four fla­vors and come in 3.75 pack­ages. There is BBQ, PB&J, Piz­za, and Smores (PB&J and BBQ were pur­chased for this review). At first glance the prod­uct looks just like Chex mix or any kind of trail mix but with much more fla­vor. The hook with this prod­uct is that it is sup­pose to be tasty gam­ing treats packed with vit­a­mins and neu­ro­trans­mit­ters for keep­ing focus. I have tast­ed both while play­ing the Unchart­ed 3 beta and nev­er noticed a dif­fer­ence but I was also wash­ing them down with Code Red Moun­tain Dew, so I am guess­ing the effects were moot. But I will try eat­ing this with maybe water in hand and see if there are actu­al­ly any effects oth­er than a great tast­ing snack.

BBQ – “A sweet & tangy blend of Smoked Almonds, BBQ Corn Nuts, Spicy Peanuts and Hon­ey & BBQ Sesame sticks”. This one is great but I can do with­out the corn nuts. There is 150 calo­ries per serv­ing at about 3.5 serv­ings, bet­ter than pick­ing up a greasy bag of chips. It has a small kick to the spices and the Sesame sticks are just plain awe­some. I rec­om­mend the BBQ but the PB&J is what real­ly blew me away.
PB&J – “A tasty blend of Peanut But­ter Chips, Peanuts, Straw­ber­ries, Straw­ber­ry Jel­ly Chips and Sweet Bread”. I was cau­tious going into this one but I was pleas­ant­ly sur­prised. It’s just as great as shov­ing a real PB&J sand­wich down the intake hole. Nei­ther the Peanut But­ter nor the Jel­ly is too over bear­ing and is a great com­bi­na­tion. It has 140 calo­ries per serv­ing at the same serv­ing size.
At the store I pur­chased them at, they retailed for $2.99 apiece; of course prices may vary by store. You can also pur­chase cas­es of this prod­uct here at the Gamer Grub store­front. They do spon­sor Mid­night Gam­ing Cham­pi­onship and endorse a few pro gamers and teams. I real­ly hope this stuff sticks around; it is a great snack that I would pick up over some­thing nor­mal like chips or Chex Mix. Again it states it helps with focus with neu­ro­trans­mit­ters (sounds like some­thing out of Met­al Gear) and I nev­er saw a dif­fer­ence but I will down a whole bag while gam­ing and will update this post. So go pick up some Gamer Grub and get to gam­ing.

    I’m always amused by the types of “gamer foods” they put out there or any of the gamer prod­ucts for that mat­ter. I actu­al­ly found caf­fi­nat­ed soap one time. Who the hell came up with caf­fi­nat­ed soap? I won­der how bad that is for you? Have you ever drank bal­lz?

    HAHA I was think­ing “BALLZ” ener­gy drink and some “Gamer Fuel” and your set for the next 2 days although abit twitchy.…
    Isn’t “sweet bread” what Han­nible Lec­tor Likes to eat with some fava beans and a nice chianti.….when not eat your liver.…yummy!

    For the love of all that is holy.….DO NOT eat the piz­za fla­vor! I can not stress that enough!!!
    P.s The PB&J is the best. Real­ly does taste like the sandwhich..especially if ur a chunky peanut but­ter eater like myself. But seri­ous­ly, do not eat the piz­za!
