Picture of gummies versus sugary items

Punch’d Gummies are an all-natural caffeine product made with maximum taste and minimal sugar. We use caffeine from green coffee beans to give you fast energy, and fruit juice to sweeten the deal. Whether it’s between school and soccer practice, or you’re heading to the gym after sitting at work all day, Punch’d Gummies fit into any lifestyle.

Take a Closer Look at What’s Inside Punch’d Energy

Ingredients you can read. No weird stuff. All-natural and organic ingredients. No artificial anything. No sugar alcohols. No saccharin or aspartame. No high fructose corn syrup. No partially hydrogenated oils. Gluten free. Cruelty free. Fat free. Dairy free. Soy free. Allergen free. Irradiation free. Worry free!

Picture of label

Punch’d Gummies are low carb, low cal, low sugar, and low glycemic. They work really well and really fast because you chew your energy!

What’s Next for Us?

In 2014, we started working with food scientists at Stanford University and experts at The National Food Lab to create our all-natural caffeine gummies. Since launching into retail, we’ve refined our formula even further based on feedback from thousands of customers.

Picture of research

We started this PieShell project to help us produce our next batch of gummies at our co-packer: our new and improved Punch’d Gummies v2.0!

So What’s Different?

We’ve learned so much in the last nine months, and we’ve taken that knowledge and made an even better product that reflects the tastes and needs of our awesome customers.

We have tweaked the formula to perfection - we’ve maintained the great taste and texture, with only a tiny amount of added sugar.

We’ve also added two new flavors, Passion Fruit and Peach, that along with Apple, Grape, Lime, and Orange, give a total of six flavors.

We’re also redoing our packaging so that it reflects this new and improved version.

Stepping-stones

Punch’d Gummies v2.0!

1st stepping-stone
Punch’d Gummies Production

We need your help to make Punch’d Gummies v2.0 a huge success story. The more we raise here, the more gummies we can manufacture at our co-packer. We’ve done a lot of legwork to get to this point! We’ve learned a lot with Punch’d Gummies v1.0, and our secret, patent-pending formulations are now complete - we’re ready to bring our little powerhouses to the masses. You’ll be the first to try them and you’ll be a huge part of the natural energy revolution!

Thanks so much for helping us reach this stepping-stone!

2nd stepping-stone
New Package Design

We’ve learned a lot from the marketplace with our Punch’d Gummies v1.0 product. We love the psychedelic Scooby Doo / Austin Powers packaging of our first product, but since our customers really focus on natural energy and a clean label, we need to point those things out more clearly, and in a font that we can all read! Showing our clean, green prototypes in the pictures, we now need to finalize and produce them in large volume. This stepping-stone gets us close to 50K packs.

Social Media Marketing

We have done very limited advertising to date. With your help, we plan to focus on strategic posts across Instagram, Facebook, Amazon, Google, Twitter, and our own website, PunchdEnergy.com. These are the places that will make a big difference in Punch’d Energy education and awareness. We need to create buzzworthy campaigns, and interact with our fans and key influencers more often. We love our @PunchdEnergy #peoplewall people! We’d love to feature YOU wearing your Punch’d Energy T-shirt and getting Punch’d Up! in anything and everything you do! #punchdlove

Who is Punch'd Energy
John Pinelli
Founder

Hi! I’m John, and that’s me and my family. We’ve worked with so many great people to get Punch’d Energy to this point, and we can’t wait to take it to the next level with your help!

I’m an engineer in the high tech sector, specifically consumer lifestyle products and manufacturing for scale. Punch’d Gummies is a passion project, a way for me to contribute to the food industry in a positive way with a product that I feel really good about from health and fitness perspectives.

I’m on Linkedin/JohnPinelli with a summary of past projects that include the iPod, Xbox, graphics, motherboards, printers, home automation, and more. Punch’d Gummies were conceptualized at dinner on the boardwalk in Santa Cruz, California while working on another tech project. It’s taken a couple years of research and development, as well as about nine months in retail, to get to this point and to really understand what Punch’d Energy brings to the table.

As the CPO, Chief Punch’d Officer, and Chief Dad I can tell you that these gummies really work well! Green coffee bean caffeine in its raw, natural, un-brewed state is the strongest, fastest way to get a real boost. The cleanest way too. Each gummie bear has 10 mg of caffeine, and they will put a smile on your face every time. Punch’d Gummies are very tasty, especially the new and improved Punch’d Gummies v2.0 with more fruit juice. We really hope you get the chance to try them!

Taste and boost were the two things we had to get right. Let’s bring the best tasting, most fun natural energy caffeine gummies to the rest of the world - thank you!
