May Bike Loot

may bike lootI apologize for being late with this review but life happens… Anyway lets get to it!

This months Bike Loot surely won’t disappoint with 5 pretty interesting products.

First we have FlapJacked Protein Pancake Mix – Cinnamon Apple flavor. These looks pretty good. Pancakes with 15g of protein,  what more could you ask for out of your pancakes? I think this weekend I will be flapping some jacks…

Next in the box was a packet of Bottle Bright which is a bottle cleaning tablet. We’ve all suffered from that bottle funk and these cleaning tablets claim to be THE BEST bottle cleaner… EVER! My go to bottle these days is a Specialized Purist so I don’t suffer from bottle funk any longer but it also can clean stubborn coffee cup stains – so you know where I’ll be using this!

I was no stranger to the third item in the box – Honey Stinger Vanilla Organic Energy Gel. As I have said before, I love me some Honey Stinger and always carry a gel or two with me on those long bike rides – I always carry extra energy products with me just in case someone else in the group needs a pick me up. It’s an all organic product and tastes yummy too. What more can I say. Get the Buzzzzz.

The fourth item in the box had me sending out an SOS. No not that type of SOS – SOS Rehydrate Electrolyte Drink Mix. This sounds pretty interesting as it’s a fast-acting electrolyte & hydration drink that has been engineered by a leading doctor, athletes and a military medical officer. It claims to give you 6 times more electrolytes, 20% more hydration and 75% less carbs. Sounds like a good alternative to just plain water if you don’t want to take in all those carbs of a typical sports drink. I might just try this when I’m working outside in the heat and not while I’m on the bike.

Lastly this month we have Movit Energy Gummies. This is a new and fast growing energy company. These have been scientifically engineered for optimal performance and delivery. The citrus flavor sounds appealing so I can’t wait to give these a try and will certainly see how they stack up to my regular go to energy chews.

Oh Honey Stinger!

Honey StingerI first discovered Honey Stinger waffles sometime last summer and was instantly hooked! I would always pack a waffle or two on my cycling journeys. They were a refreshing treat when the tank was running low. I would augment them with some chews or gels from other manufacturers… only because I hadn’t discovered those yet from Honey Stinger. A trip to my local REI remedied that and I came home with a couple of different flavors of their chews and a couple of their Classic Gold gels.

By far my favorite chews are the Pink Lemonade. To me they are the best tasting gels ever (and I’ve tried a lot). I buy them by the case and have to fight my girlfriend over them (ok, no real fighting, we share pretty well but they are her favorite workout boost). I haven’t tried all the flavors but the orange and pomegranate flavors are my second favorites right now. I’ve heard good things about the cherry cola flavor so that is on my list to try next – that is if I can ever step away from the pink lemonade.
