It’s time to take a look at the February 2020 StrideBox contents!
Untapped salted raspberry gel: This is interesting, because it feels really liquid-y. The packet is a little taller than a typical gel, I assume because it’s a thinner consistency. I haven’t tasted it yet, but it looks promising.
Click Protein Coffee in vanilla latte: This is milk-based, so I won’t be sampling it. But it’s a cool concept, a coffee drink with 16g of protein. It also has 5g of sugar added.
Taos Bakes pb chocolate & butterscotch bar: This is made with a mix of grains; corn, quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth. It’s also got flax and chia seeds in it. It’s not super high protein (5g) but the ingredients are all things you’d recognize.
Barnana peanut butter banana bites: These are dehydrated banana bits covered in peanut butter. They’re not hard, crispy things like banana chips, these bananas still retain a moist chewy texture. If my kid’s school wasn’t nut free, I’d send these to school with her.
Doctor Hoy’s pain relief gel and arnica boost: Tiny little sample packets of two different products. You can use them separately or together. I do like arnica for bruising support, it seems like when I have arnica on hand and use it on bruises, they don’t last as long.
StrideBox essentials 2oz multi-use containers: These can be filled with your favorite gel to take along on a run, or maybe you make your own mix of something. (UCAN can be made into a thicker version for fueling on the run, I used that when I ran Boston.) Or you could fill them with shampoo or conditioner and take them on a trip. I would recommend that once you dedicate one to shampoo, you probably don’t want to switch it to gel later on.
