I am very thankful and honored to have been gifted two boxes of PowerBar Canada Performance Energy Blends as part of being a member of the Canada Running Series Digital Champion program. Each of the Digital Champions were given one box of the Apple Mango Strawberry as well as one box of the Pear Blackberry for our participation, support and promotion of #TYS10K. We were provided these as a thank you for our work with no conditions and I was not required to write about this.
I’ve had a few chances now to try these blends before and after some of my training runs. They have the consistency of apple sauce which for me I LOVE! I grew up eating a lot of home made apple sauce so this to me really feels like a treat! But its more than that and that’s what makes these blends really amazing! These gluten- free fruit-based blends are formulated with PowerBar’s C2MAX, a 2:1 glucose to fructose blend found to deliver 20-50% more energy to muscles than glucose alone and can help improve endurance performance by 8%. But you would never notice! The only thing I noticed when I had it either before or after a run was they they had great flavor, great consistency and the perfect amount of fuel for each of my runs. I never once found that I needed more!
Another great thing I liked about these badboys is the packaging! They’re inside a very pliable bag that allows you to squeeze it into your mouth quickly while running and a great ability to pack it anywhere since it’ll fit into odd shaped spaces. I also love the screw on lid. If you ever need to, you can put the lid back on and shove it back into your pocket or running belt without a huge mess!
For those of you interested in the nutritional values
I would like to thank the Canada Running Series for accepting me as a Digital Champion and supporting my training. I would also like to thank PowerBar Canada for being a sponsor of this race and providing the perfect fuel for my training runs as well as for all the runners during and after the race!
