AeroShot Gets You Moving: Get a Free Sample!
|It's Chapstick! It's a lighter! No, it's caffeine in an inhaler!|
AeroShot Pure Energy is an airborne hit of 100mg of caffeine (about as much as a cup of coffee) mixed with B vitamins. It's a powder that is quickly absorbed in your mouth as you open the tube and inhale (insert drug related inhaling joke here). "It's small, light, fast-acting and, unlike liquids, it can truly go anywhere regardless of heat, cold, or TSA regulations," claims the website.
The breathable shot was invented by David Edwards, a biomedical engineering professor at Harvard University. I received samples of the zero-calorie stimulant in a tube and passed them out to some caffeine-addicted friends. Urging them to take a break from Monster or coffee, and use the AeroShot instead of their daily vice, I wanted to get opinions.
One guy spit it out and threw the AeroShot away, claiming the lime-flavored taste was too bitter for his liking. Another guy coughed, hated it at first, and now he's asking me where he can get more. The third participant in the amateur study plugged along and rather enjoyed the high of his complimentary AeroShot.
I was intrigued by the product and its effects. Yes, the taste is a little bitter, but has a nice aftertaste from the stevia herbal sweetener. You feel the effects of the caffeine within minutes. If you use the whole thing in a short amount of time (three good puffs, or so), as I did, then you're going to go through withdrawal as you come crashing down.
