They’ll sell you a gaming mouse that turns you into a beast, a macro’d up keyboard that can turn you into an MMO god and even glasses that are supposed to help you game, but have we been skipping the far more simple option of gaming snacks? We usually avoid product reviews here at Gamers Heroes, mainly because companies refuse to let you review a product unless you agree to giving a certain rating. However, sometimes there’s a product that pops up that requires some attention. So in true Gamers Heroes fashion, here’s an honest product review of Gamer Grub, no bribery and no promises. We’ll let you know if it’s worth your buck, and we’ll be honest about it.
What Is GamerGrub?
It also mentions on the website that it’s packed with essential vitamins and neurotransmitters, designed to improve game performance. I’m a gamer, I know the basics of Biology and other sciences but my knowledge is limited, so when I attempted to research neurotransmitters to see if the claims could be true, I was met with this:
“Neurotransmitters are endogenous chemicals that transmit signals from a neuron to a target cell across a synapse. Neurotransmitters are packaged into synaptic vesicles clustered beneath the membrane in the axon terminal, on the presynaptic side of a synapse.”
Sorry, what? So I decided against trying to prove or disprove Gamer Grubs claims from a scientific point of view, and just decided to do it in the best way I know how. Kill stuff on COD without GamerGrub and then with, GamerGrub.
The Scientific-ish Approach
The second flavor I devoured was PB & J. Again I was quite surprised as the thought of putting Peanut Butter and Jam (Jelly for our overseas friends) into the same sandwich made me physically ill. So, squinting slightly and worried about the aftermath, I took a mouth full. Just as with the Smores flavor, I was really impressed at the sweet taste and soft texture. I think a bit of credit is due here. Despite the fact that I have dozens of American friends, work with American Journalists everyday and even have American members in my family, I’ve never once been convinced to actually try a legitimate PB & J sandwich, but my experience with GamerGrub has actually opened me to a whole new world of American food habits and I am now officially a lover of the Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwich club.
The third flavor and the one I was probably most curious about, Pizza. How do you take loads a snack mix and make it taste like pizza? Sadly, I can’t really say it tasted like pizza, it was more of a cheese and tomato taste. I suppose you could argue that the majority of a pizza consists of cheese and tomato, but I was hoping for maybe a peperoni and mushroom twist to it. The pizza flavor is probably the easiest on the palette, it doesn’t leave a strong aftertaste and isn’t very sweet, this is probably the only one of the GamerGrub snacks I could eat first thing in the morning.
I saved my personal favorite until last. I’m a huge BBQ fan, I have BBQ sauce on practically everything so I’d consider myself an unlicensed expert when it comes to evaluating a BBQ product. It’s sad but anyone that has been out with me to a meal would have heard me moan about BBQ plenty of times. 95% of restaurants that offer BBQ sauce give you this overly sweet stuff that gets sickly after a couple of mouthfuls, while the rest offer you stuff that tastes strangely close to burnt meat. However, GamerGrub actually managed to capture the essence of BBQ flavor by combining a slightly sweet flavor with a bit of spice. It sounds quite strange writing it down, but it was easily my favorite flavor of the 4 and probably the one I would buy most often. A must try for any meat loving men that can’t be bothered to slave away behind a BBQ all day..I probably could have reworded that bit a little better.
