1. I like it when blog material literally shows up on my door step.
2. You never know what is going to be in this fun little box.
So, what’s in the box? (That was not a creepy movie quote from the movie Seven with Brad Pitt by the way!)
Even though I'm on a Low Carb diet right now, I decided that for my readers I would go ahead and try these even though they aren't low carb. You guys totally twisted my arm! :)
When I opened the bag, it was not what I was expecting. I was picturing the thinly cut banana chips that you would find in trail mix. These are like little brown banana nuggets. They aren't bad. I made the Hubbo try one too and he said they sort of taste like banana nut bread.

I've been following this brand on Twitter for a while now and it seems that a lot of runners use ENERGYbits.
Warning! Read the directions on how to consume these! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, DO NOT CHEW!!!
I decided I wanted to write this blog tonight and I hadn't tried these yet so I popped one in my mouth thinking I'd just chew it up. Worst. Idea. Ever! The packaging is a little lacking in the directions though. It came in a small black zip-lock baggie that only makes me feel like a part time drug dealer when I open it up. But after I chewed one up and nearly gagged, I read the StrideGuide and it says to swallow 20-30 tabs 5-10 minutes before running for consistent energy. Good to know! The little dark dots in the picture are the "bits".
When I first opened the StrideBox I saw this first and didn't recognize what it was. So I took it out and figured it was the world's largest slap bracelet. These things are making a come-back you know! I had like 5 in the 80's and thought they were the coolest thing ever.
I was just about to send StrideBox a tweet when I got checked my email and noticed an email from them explaining what this really is. Slap bracelet? Yes! But it is actually a lot more useful than that. It's a blinky light you can wear on your wrist or your ankle. Much more functional than the world's largest slap bracelet!
You say it like Noon. I use these all the time and absolutely love them! There really are very few flavors that I just don't like. I did try their new product line called All Day Nuun and it is supposed to release slowly to keep you hydrated longer, but it tastes more like medicine. But everything else is good. This product is like a non-sugary version of Gatorade.
I may have had a slight addiction to Clif Energy Bars at one point in time. Since I have started watching my carbs I had to put them aside, but I'm definitely a Clif Bar fan!
