[Review] Mint Rocket Chocolate

By Kat Leonard

Cue Rocket Man music
Out there… flying through the air. Red Bull gives you wings? This stuff known as Rocket Chocolate is supposed to make you fly through the air faster than a speeding bullet. But is it all that it claims? It says that it has twice the caffeine. But it doesn’t say what product it has twice as much caffeine as. Another part of the package says ‘Boosts like a cup of coffee’. Of course the package doesn’t list anything at all.

I couldn’t find anything on their site, so there’s really no telling at all what is in it. Bad score there. Bad form, too. The little package does, however, have a little drawing of a rocket ship. Each wrapper is differently colored according to flavor. The ingredients list on this one (Chocolate Mint flavor) states milk chocolate, lecithin, vanillin, coconut oil, caffeine, natural peppermint oil, glycerine. It also has a warning that it may contain traces of peanut butter. Good thing I’m not allergic to that.

Review

Opening the package, I can instantly smell the mint chocolate flavor. It reminds me of the mint chocolate after-dinner things one would get at a restaurant like Olive Garden. The actual chocolate is about as long as my pinkie finger but as thick as my thumb. It is also rectangular. A very interesting shape to be sure. I would have expected they would have some sort of picture of a rocket ship on the chocolate, but none was present.

Popping it into my mouth it tastes like mint chocolate. Of course it does. What else would it taste like? Carrots and peas? Anyways. It doesn’t seem like the chocolate is top notch but they have managed to hide the taste of caffeine for the most part. I find myself licking at my teeth a little bit to make sure everything is off of them. It has a bit of a chemical taste after the chocolate has melted away. I don’t really know if I’d find myself eating them at leisure. There are better chocolates I could pop into my mouth, certainly. Even Nestle would be a step up.

The best thing to do with this would be to just let it melt in your mouth instead of chewing and swallowing. They say that caffeine is absorbed quicker through the tissues in the mouth than in the lining of the stomach. However, I would much prefer to have a chewing tobacco than anything else. By taste alone I would prefer the energy dips I have sitting in my freezer.

It doesn’t take long for me to feel the effects. Right now I’m writing this while having recently popped one in my mouth. I can feel the energy coursing through my veins, but I feel jittery which tells me there must be a relatively large amount of sugar or something in the chocolate. I am pretty sure I’ll be having a crash soon enough. However, the caffeine content is very low compared to anything else really. Supposedly only about 42 milligrams per piece.

Final Words

The chocolate is not a bad deal considering how cheap each one is. You can find a good number of them for a nice price on the Rocket Chocolate website. However there are other things out there that would taste better and give you a better bounce in your step. It also gives you the jitters which is a negative in my books. However, considering the price for each it’s a good deal on the go. I still have no clue what ‘twice the caffeine’ is supposed to mean. Twice the caffeine of what type of product exactly? Coffee? Red Bull? What? Oh well… The caffeine content is only 42mg or so.

Score: 6.25/10 (Below Average)
Aroma: 10/10 (Very nice mint chocolate scent!)
Taste: 7.0/10
Kick: 3.0/10
Value: 5.0/10

    Thanks for the review. You mentioned that it contains peanut butter and how you’re not allergic to it, but are you allergic to anything else?

    Just a few antibiotics that I don’t need to worry about when it comes to caffeinated food. Hopefully.

    That 42mg or so very well might be misinformation. Multiplee sources say that rocket chocolate has around 150mg. And I’m sure some people don’t want to make that mistake

    Worst case scenario, you could lose thousands of dollars and end
    up being very disillusioned, as many people are right
    now as a result of not really understanding what they were doing.
    You are trying to find something which will appreciate in value over a period of
    time once fellow investors decide they want what you have got.

    This would include paper, receipt books, notebooks, small equipment such as a calculator, and other supplies
    used in the office and for record keeping. Snow capped mountains,
    ski resorts, forests, festivals, Victorian architecture,
    songs, arts and a historical background. o Ask if they have any special days or sections catered to real estate.

    For this there is no better way than to do than research.
    Westerners pressured the Hawaiian government to adopt a private
    system of land ownership. Therefore, when they recognize an area that might contain hydrocarbons, they
    start negotiating with the property owner to lease the mineral right for exploration. There are restricted seats on these excursions and they will be filled first come first served.
    And the products will be on their doorstep within few
    hours.

    On account of schedule development, your organization is likely to have the
    smallest achievable downtime which will benefit you essentially the
    most. You are the only one will be hurt by this, so there is
    no reason not to be honest. Before the health insurance exchanges become fully operational, health insurance
    payers would need to have their business models, market strategies, IT systems and technologies, operational designs
