Apollo Gum blasts into energy segment with new gum offering


DENVER – Apollo Gum Company on Thursday announced its launch of Apollo Energy Gum in the U.S. and Europe.

"My goal was to create the best energy gum with the same amount of caffeine as your average energy drink,” stated Troy Widgery, founder of both Apollo Gum and GoFast! Energy Drink. “We all have busy lives, and we all need a pick-me-up. I wanted to develop a compact, fast-acting source of clean energy that is healthy, portable and helps to reduce the carbon footprint."

Apollo Energy Gum is one of the fastest-acting sources of energy due to its innovative delivery system that instantly boosts the user's energy levels, the company boasts. The liquid center of the gum, which contains vitamins B3, B6 and B12, 80 mg of caffeine and zero sugar, absorbs through the lining of the mouth and is delivered directly into the bloodstream, providing energy up to five times faster than other energy supplements.

And Apollo's shell has more Xylitol than any Xylitol gum on a market. Xylitol is a natural sweetener that helps to prevent cavities, repairs tooth enamel and can strengthen the immune system. Apollo Energy Gum is also free from Aspartame and Acesulfame.

"We are very excited to finally share our product. Apollo is about to change the energy market completely. Apollo is unique. It tastes great, is portable, and good for your body and teeth. Think of it as your new pre-workout or energy on the go," stated Boyd Wilkinson, director of brand development, Apollo Gum.

Apollo Gum Company and the Apollo JetPack recently performed an extreme water stunt at Lake San Cristobal for Apollo's official launch announcement. The JetPack pilot emerged from beneath the waters of Lake San Cristobal, soared 510 feet across the lake and landed the 800-horsepower rocket-powered jetpack on the edge of a cliff.
