Great fuel source for long runs. My body seems to go through it more slowly, and the kick you get is more gradual than sudden. The current design fits well in a hydration vest.
By far the most healthy, tasty way to get that much needed sugar and avoid the bonk. Why have I been eating those gross gels for years?
The new packaging is great - it isn't sharp on my lips, and is easier to use when I tape it to my bike for quick access during triathlons. They also fit better in the small pockets of my running shorts and my bike jersey. Now I’m even more of a fan!
I love the maple syrup packets for my long runs and marathons. However, I'm sure I'm in the minority when I say I don't like the new packaging. The packets are so skinny that they slide right out of the elasticized holders on my bib belt meant to carry fuel.
Read an Outside magazine article hyping this as a fuel for runners and try to keep it as natural as possible. I love it - the taste, consistency and boost it gives me. Give it a try...u won't be disappointed!!!
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.
