Once again I have been looking into different types of "fuel" to take on my long runs and just runs in general. If you recall, last year I tried out the GU Energy Gels. They weren't bad, but I just couldn't get use to the consistency... YUCK! Anyways... I recently invested in some Chomp Energy Chews and I LOVE them!
I got a box of the Cranberry Apple with Caffeine.
One serving size is 4 chews and they are only 90 calories!
I was a little surprised how BIG the chews turned out to be...
They are monster size!
On my long runs I just felt completely wiped out after mile six... and then exhausted when I was completely finished with the run. I knew that I probably needed to start taking in some sort of calories to help me out. I love these because they seriously gave me a bolt of energy during and even after my run! I was definitely pleased!
I see why they call them energy chews... they are definitely chewy!
I will definitely be carrying some with me during the Mini Marathon this May :)
