When I heard about Fuel 100 Electro-Bites, I was not familiar with them. Fuel 100 Electro-Bites are nutrition for athletes to help replace nutrients lost during exercise.
Personally, fuel is not always something that I think about it, until I need it.
I start to fade.
My calves start to cramp. Eventually my thighs will cramp, and by that time I'm pretty much done. So, I know that I need to fuel (and hydrate), and sometimes often depending on the day.
And since I've started trail running, I usually always try to have some type of fuel on me. I've run into issues on the road, but the last thing that I want to do is get into a situation on the trail where I can't get help if I need it. So I always try to make sure that if I'm doing any type of distance run (or strenuous or chance of getting super lost on the run) that I have some type of energy source with me.
Today, that energy source was Electro-Bites by Fuel 100.
First let me tell you about them. Electro-Bites are made from organic coconut oil, organic agave nectar, and non-GMO white potato starch. They replace sodium, potassium, magnesium along with key vitamins.
I found the flavors interesting: apple cinnamon, pumpkin spice, salty vanilla, salty vinegar, and simply salt.
I don't know about you, but packaging is a big deal to me when I'm carrying things on my run. I want something that doesn't take up a lot of room. The Electro-Bites fit perfect in my pocket on my Jette skirt from Skirt Sports (affiliate link). And the size will be perfect for my hydration belt or hydration pack. So I instantly liked that they were easy to carry.
I also like that they were easy to open. I've tried other fuel sources and when I waste time struggling to open something during a run (or worse a race), I'm not pleased. But Electro-Bites were very easy to open.
Open first glace, I thought, these things look weird. I expected them to be hard and sort of chalky.
To my surprise they melted almost instantly with a great taste and no after taste.
