It's not April Fools Day, but ADATA XPG has lifted the lid on one of its latest gaming products for CES 2021. XPG Gaming Gum is designed to give gamers a boost with chewable caffeine. XPG first teased this on its official Twitter page back in March 2020.

The new XPG MANA Gaming gum includes caffeine and a vitamin called Lutein, which is reportedly beneficial for eye health. It remains to be seen if chewing gaming gum can be a proper substitute for proper eye health, with plenty of options available on the market, including eyewear with blue light filters. It is recommended that gamers and those who regularly use a PC often take breaks, as prolonged exposure to screens can cause dryness of the eye.

With a lot of emphasis on energy products in the gaming market reliant on caffeine, it is recommended that users moderate the use of stimulants. The XPG Gaming Gum we are told has a minty fresh flavor. XPG isn't the first to unveil gaming gum, with Razer announcing its Respawn range of gaming consumables last year. Perhaps Duke Nukem might be the ideal customer as he tends to run out of gum a lot.

There's currently no word on pricing or availability.

    I would like a source of caffeine more convenient than soft drinks, tea or coffee. Seems interesting if it is not overpriced

    Look for Lotte Black Black gum it's a caffeinated gum that's been available for years.

    I've tried the Lotte gum when I traveled in Japan (caffeinated gums are not allowed to be sold in stores in many US states) but I don't think it worked as well as soda, tea or coffee.

    This has been available at every grocery store for decades.

    I went through a phase of using caffeine pills at work, and it wasn't pretty. Years later, I found a different use for them in my pre-workout stack.

    I wonder if this stuff can help with headaches

    Depends on what's causing your headaches, but if they're caused by caffeine-withdrawal (or vasodilation, generally) then anything with caffeine should help.

    If you're suffering from migraines, check out: feverfew, l-carnitine, riboflavin, co-Q10, magnesium, and lavender.
