So if you order pancakes at Cracker Barrel, you get these little individual glass bottles of "100% Natural Syrup". Always tried to snake a few more. I always found them to be a little uncomfortable in my back pockets. Plus, when you finish them mid-ride, you still had empty glass bottles clanking around back there if you can't find a recycling bin along your ride. Then UnTapped came along and created an all natural, great tasting, quick energy product that didn't use glass bottles. Its perfect. Huge fan!
Excellent for long runs
Untapped is exactly as advertised-maple syrup in a packet. A simple and marvelous way to transport easily digestible simple carbohydrate source. A little expensive, but until a competitor comes alone Untapped can set there own prices.
So good and 100% real food. Can’t be beat.
The best stuff on the planet the ginger flavored drink is THE BEST!
Why buy maple syrup in little packets when you have a gallon jug in your fridge a friend asked? Well, convenience is the simple answer. When traveling to races it would be cumbersome to lug - and refrigerator - a jar of syrup and fill multiple gel flasks. As well as try to keep them from leaking in drop boxes (or the syrup going off when sitting in the sun all day). These packets have just the right amount of syrup for a quick pick me up. the tops are pretty easy to tear off and the design allows you to get the syrup out with minimal effort and no waste (small opening so it doesn't leak out if you don't finish the amount right away). To top it off, they have great customer service! I received a carton of packets recently where one or two had leaked leaving a crystallized maple sugar mess on the rest of the box. Replacements were sent promptly! (cleaning the remaining packets was just a matter of tossing them in a bowl of hot water till the sugar melted off and then wiping them dry).
Hands down the best "gel" I've tried. Warm weather, cold weather, doesn't matter. Simple and organic - doesn't get any better. The only recommendation that I would make is to have a "litter leash" on the packaging, like the Clif Bar gels. I've never lost a top after opening, but I do appreciate the "litter leash" feature on the Clif Bar gel packaging.
Love Untapped!!! Such a great, natural fueling option and takes me back to my VT roots. I ordered it hoping it would come in time for an upcoming race and it was the quickest delivery with classic recycled wood shavings as packaging to top it off. The best
I am a marathon swimmer who has a constant struggle to keep calories down during lengthy events. This product is easily digestible and has a pleasant taste which is a bonus after more than 10-15 hrs of lake water ingestion!
