Good Morning, G Series Energy Chews Giveaway!

4 Jun

Happy Monday morning to you all! 

I’m feeling great today and actually slept really well!  I started my day off with a healthy breakfast of an Ezekiel wrap with egg, salsa, cheese and spinach, followed by a glass of homemade orange juice (1 1/2 oranges, ice cubes and water, blend until smooth <—we’re trying to use up the oranges before they go bad).  I also had a cup of coffee when I first woke up.

This is a recycled photo, but I had the exact same thing again this morning!

G Series Energy Chews Giveaway- Win a case, 16 packs!

IMG_8873

G Series Energy Chews are a pre-game fuel in a convenient form.  They are designed to be used prior to training or competition to provide energy from a concentrated blend of carbohydrates to fuel athlete performance.

Last week, I was sent three packs of Gatorade’s G Series Energy Chews.  I was excited about this product review and I couldn’t wait to try them out. 

I decided to use them before my early morning workouts since I typically workout on an empty stomach.  I first tried the fruit punch  flavor and it was great.  I actually split the pack with my husband and we were both surprised by the texture.  It was better then we imagined.  I liked that it was chewy but not super chewy, which would make them ideal for eating while running or during an endurance workout.  The second flavor I tried was orange, my favorite,  it was really good and the third flavor I tried was the cool blue, my least favorite flavor.

I will admit, while they were all good, I’m not the biggest fan of artificial colors and the cool blue color was really really blue…but since I wouldn’t use them on a daily basis I would purchase these for future workouts where I need a little something to keep me going.  I would definitely use these if I’m training for a race or during endurance workouts.  I’m not a huge gel fan so these would be right up my alley.

I also really like that you can take them out of the cardboard box since they are in a plastic sleeve.  They would be easy to bring with during a race or when you’re training.

Here are some fun facts about the chews:

  • They come in three flavors: Orange, Fruit Punch and Cool Blue
  • They contain 25 grams of carbohydrates to help athletes fuel before training or competition.
  • They have 100 calories per pack
  • Electrolytes:  They contain 85-90 mg sodium (varies by flavor) and 30 mg potassium to help promote electrolyte balance and help athletes retain fluid
  • Vitamins:  Their a good source of the B vitamins (20% Daily Value)- Niacin(B3), Pantothenic Acid (B5) and Pyridoxine (B6)- that aid in energy metabolism as part of a daily diet.
  • You can find G Series Energy Chews nationwide at grocery, convenience, mass, club and drug stores.
  • There are 6 chews per pack, which is one serving size
  • They retail for about $1.49-$1.99, a good deal!

    Im a sucker for all things fruit punch!

  2. I have been wanting to try these but have had a difficult time finding them around town here where I live. I think I am most interested in trying the Orange. I sort of agree with you about the whole BLUE thing, and Cool Blue is a color in my book, not a flavor 😉 hehe.

    I thought I’d be able to find them at my local sporting store but they only had the G-Gel and as you stated I’m not so sure about the gel.

    Quick trainer question – I don’t run, or do races but I’ve been doing the Turbo Fire workout which is intense cardio, I thought these chews might help me on the days I’m feeling tired, or not wanting to give it my all in the afternoon (when I have time to workout). I wanted to know if you think it would be a wise choice to try them for days when I think I just can’t give it my 100%. I didn’t know if that training warranted a snack/energy boost like this.

    Thanks for the write up it’s been super helpful!

    I NEED to try the fruit punch I have tried energy chews similar to this by “cliff” brand and thought they were pretty bad. I love gatorade and drank it all the time during my basketball games when growing up, I am hoping they didn’t fail to dissappoint with this product but I havent had a chance to get my hands on them. I loved the fruitpunch flavor drink so thats why I would wanna try that one. I am liking you on facebook right now too!

    I would love to try all three flavors. I’m currently training for the bozeman triathlon and I could definitely use these during my longer workouts!

    I would love to try to Orange flavor as that is my fav kind of Gatorade! I would love to try them before I use my new Elliptical trainer that I just got! 🙂

    It’s a toss up between the fruit punch and orange for me!

    Orange is obviously one of the best flavours of any drink or fruit, and the fact that you chew a gummy to give you the carbs and electrolytes you need for a fantastic workout is something that I need to try!

    Hey nice review I couldn’t agree more about your opinions on this product. The g series is one of my favorite pre-workout fuels and the new energy chews hit the spot better than any other product I’ve tried. I would be interested in trying one of the red chews seeing how I can only find orange ones in my area.

  14. Christine June 7, 2012 at 1:08 pm #

    The cool blue flavor sounds, well, cool!

  15. Brittany June 8, 2012 at 9:13 am #

    ORANGE ORANGE!! I want to try orange!
