I’ve been a cyclist living on Gu and Nuun products for many years. It’s been hard to find nutrition that isn’t overly engineered and, to me, creepy. Sometimes you get some more natural ingredients or things slightly less chemical but the taste is another challenge. I came across Untapped a while ago and tucked it into the back of my mind. Recently, simplicity and REAL FOOD have become priorities to me. I revisited this brand and pulled the trigger when my other supplies ran out. I just tried this sample pack on the 100k D2R2 ride this past weekend. I was pleasantly surprised at how delicious every product was. The coffee untapped was better than I imagined - the perfect balance of maple and coffee flavors. And then both drink mixes were soooooo good. They have wildly different flavors but delicious. I started with the lemon tea for the caffeine and then switched to the ginger after 4 hrs to get the sodium and tummy ease for the remainder of the ride. I came home and ordered a box of untapped maple, a bag of lemon tea mix, a few sleeves of the ginger mix. Sad to see the coffee untapped out until Oct!
I was having a dilemma about what items to order. This sample pack is perfect, because it now allows me to try some new flavors and to also have my favorites in there. Great that you can customize it!
I ordered this sample pack with the intent of trying out a variety of their flavors and I can tell you that so far I like their product. First, it's all-natural ingredients. You can actually read and understand what the products are made of without a Ph.D. Who doesn't like maple syrup. I'm looking forward to trying out the Lemon Tea Mapleaid on my next ride. I definitely will be ordering more of these products. Thank you, Ted and your team in making some real food products.
