Hero Energy is a peppermint-flavoured, chewable energy mint that has the same levels of active ingredients (caffeine/taurine) in one mint as a normal energy drink.
There is a recommended maximum dose of five mints in any 24 hours, and it isn't recommended to consume more than one or two mints per session.
One mint is equivalent to 1.5 cans of Diet Coke, and one venti coffee from Starbucks can contain as much as the recommended maximum dose.
The UK-based manufacturer has signed a distribution agreement to supply into convenience stores across the whole of the country.
