Chocolate Agave #9 Review & Giveaway
I read about Chocolate Agave #9 on another running blog and was interested in trying it. I contacted the company and scored some to try out.
About the Product:
Chocolate Agave #9 is a low glycemic energy gel made only with belgian dark cocoa and organic agave. That's right - 2 ingredients! It is a vegan, organic product. The low glycemic index has been shown to withhold an energy crash and cause no stomach distress as the body metabolizes the gel evenly. The gel weights in at 70 calories, 75 mg sodium and 15 g carbs.
Well, I used this not only for an energy gel, but for a snack and dessert! It is super dark and very rich! It worked best for me before swimming. I go very early, at 5am, and need something to hold me over and get me through the workout and this worked very well for me. It tastes like a treat - dark chocolate icing! I have used it for shorter runs both before and during, especially before I have eaten breakfast. I used it during 2 long runs as well and it kept me going. It has worked well for my stomach for all of these scenarios. Coming in at 70 calories, it is not a bad way to stave a chocolate craving!! Check it out here.
A trial size 3 pack costs $4.99, while you can purchase a 24 pack for $32.49.
