Energems chocolate energy supplements hit store shelves

BY Jason Owen

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla. — Energems, a new "energy bite" made with real milk chocolate is hitting store shelves this spring, the company announced today. Charlotte, N.C., has been selected as the official city to unveil the new energy supplement, with expansion to other retail locations coming soon.

"Our research showed that people were searching for an energy product that tastes great, is low-calorie, easy to transport, jitter-free and allows the user to decide how much energy they need and when they need it. After years of development and taste testing, we are proud to launch a product that addresses all of these issues," states Joe Fairleigh, VP sales.

Each box of Energems contains nine "bites" made with real milk chocolate and energy blend, all wrapped in a coated shell. Energems are available in three flavors: Chocolate Charge, Mint Fusion and Peanut Butter Blast. One box of Energems equals three energy drinks.

Energems is now sold in more than 40 Circle K stores throughout the Charlotte area. "We are thrilled that Charlotte will be the first official launch city to experience our much-talked-about new product. Several thousand other stores will be following suit in the upcoming months around the country," Fairleigh added.
