Working at a running store gives me the opportunity to try on a plethora of shoes, try several products and taste all kinds of nutrition. Last year, GU came out with their infamous Salted Caramel flavor that stole taste buds from the first drop. This years new flavors are Salted Watermelon and Root Beer!
The Watermelon was like a Jolly Rancher, with the salt part more in the background. Like the WAY back. If you don’t like super sweet during your run/bike/whatever, you won’t like this, but I think it would be perfect at the beginning of a race when your stomach can handle more. The Root Beer was kind of like a slightly watered down flat root beer. The flavor was definitely there, but I would have liked it a bit stronger. Not one of my faves, but OK. Gives these a try for your next race!
Oooorrrrr you could just use these…
Sooooo much sugar! I can’t believe that Candy Corn is already out. Actually, I can believe it. I don’t know why, but I really like CC. I tried the CC M&Ms last year and loved them! I even had a bag full with me during my bachelorette party. So random, I know. Want ore random? Check out this plant from my mom’s garden…
In case you are a new-ish reader, check out my post on Todd and I’s magnet collecting HERE. Yup, you guess it. The 26.2 is my new addition. The post card is actually a birthday card from Todd last year when he was in Taiwan for three months. Isn’t the toilet paper Ragnar one funny?
