I’ve recently sort of fallen in love with Bulu Box. Thanks to an opportunity through FitFluential, I was able to try one out last month! I liked it so much, that by the end of the week I wound up subscribing for the rest of the year! So, I have decided to start a new series on my blog called Bulu Box Finds! Featuring reviews by myself, and guest posters as we talk about some of our favorite finds inside of these awesome Bulu Boxes!
Today, I have a new favorite of mine to review for y’all! REV Honey Energy U-Tube!
REV Honey U-Tubes are ALL NATURAL, fruit & honey based energy ‘gels‘ that not only give your body the energy it needs to perform at it’s maximum capabilities, but it also stimulates the mind, giving it a natural boost as well. The flavor I received in my Bulu Box was 98% raw honey mixed together with freeze dried peaches and organic peach flavoring! No caffeine. No Stimulants.
I was a little apprehensive at first. I have had the worst time trying to find fueling options that work for me. I have never been able to take GU or any Gels I’ve tried. When I’m already feeling slightly cruddy, because lets face it double digit runs are still not exactly a walk in the park for me, the last thing I can force myself to do is gulp down the thick gooey gel that makes me gag. Literally, GAG. Then I switched to Honey Stinger Cherry Blossom chews, and they worked wonders….. Until they just suddenly didn’t anymore. Now, they give me the worst stomach cramps known to man.
Fail. Fail. Fail. Always a fail, no matter what I had tried.
This was bound to be no different, right?
I found it to be not that bad tasting!!! I’m not the hugest honey fan… It’s the texture, just like gels. I love the flavor of honey… But the texture just totally throws me. However, this was surprisingly thin. It wasn’t nearly as goopy and thick as your typical honey or gel. It was pretty enjoyable. The flavor wasn’t extremely peachy, but there was a nice hint of fruit in there.
I felt fueled, cramp free, and happy for the rest of my ‘long’ run! As soon as I returned back home I ordered a 16 pack of the peach and pre-ordered a couple of the Apple Cinnamon! I’m really looking forward to trying that particular flavor! After all, I have a Marathon to train for here in a couple of months. I need to get this whole fueling thing under control!
Whats your favorite way to fuel for long workouts?
