Electro-Bites Fuel100 Review


As I hit the trail at Zion National Park last week to run the Zion Traverse, I had all the usual gear… water, shoes, sunscreen, extra socks, merino layer and something new: Electro-Bites Fuel100 pouches in place of gels.

These are awesome, to say the least. Combining potato starch, coconut oil and agave syrup in lightly flavored options like Cocoa, Vanilla, Vinegar, Apple Cinnamon and seasonal flavors, these 100-calorie energy snacks are bite sized and deliver quick energy for the run ahead. I used the Cocoa, Vanilla and unflavored our first day and found they dissolved easily in my mouth, all had a pleasing light flavor… not too overpowering. And the texture was fine as well… it gave my stomach something with slightly more substance to work on while I ran (which I prefer), plus it required less water to go down compared to a traditional gel. Bonus! With the sodium/magnesium/potassium balance, it practically replaces your hydration drink.

The Fuel100 sustained me every bit as much as a gel + snack combination, so you can really replace two things in your pack with each Fuel100 pouch. In addition, the price is on par with the typical gel scale… 6 pouches for around $14, definitely worth it!

I give it two thumbs up!
