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.
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).
