Typically when I stock up on my GU Gels, I go to RunningWarehouse.com. Well tonight when I was placing my order, something caught my eye. They have a special offer package. The limited-production GU Energy Gel Peanut Butter & Jet Blackberry Split 10-Pack pairs 2 great flavors at a special price of $1 per packet! You can get the box for just $10.
Now you can have your peanut butter burst in a convenient gel package. I ordered a couple of boxes to try during my training runs. If all goes well, I will be using them in my remaining three half marathons I have this year. I will give it a review when they come in.
Here are details from GU’s website:
Introducing the biggest thing since sliced bread…
With the endurance sports world watching, GU Energy Labs is thrilled to announce Peanut Butter GU, the newest flavor in the line of time-tested GU Energy Gel! The R&D folks have listened to athlete feedback and flavor requests and the wait is over; Peanut Butter GU is ready for all you nutty endurance athletes.
“The introduction of a Peanut Butter GU is a long awaited and greatly satisfying nutty addition to our line-up,” said Brooke Kennedy, GU’s Marketing Manager. “Our product design team has done an excellent job consistently pushing the limits of GU flavor profiles in an effort to deliver athletes the highest-quality performance nutrition products.”
Peanut Butter GU is made with natural crushed peanuts and offers athletes a savory alternative to the historically sweet flavor options. The sweet and salty flavor packs all of the richness of Peanut Butter but in a consistency that won’t leave your tongue cemented to the roof of your mouth. Mix a little Peanut Butter GU with Jet Blackberry GU to create a PB&J befitting of the most intense endurance events.
I thought I would pass it along to everyone. If you try them as well, come back here and leave some feedback.
