Do You Need More Energy?

Clif Shot BloksI still remember the very first time I tried Clif Shot Bloks, I was running a 10K on a brutally hot summer day and I hadn't eaten nearly enough carbs the night before as I usuallly do before a race. As I was nearing the water station and very much looking forward to that gulp of water I was about to be handed off, to my surprise, I was also handed a thin plastic package.


Now, I don't do caffeine or sugary sports drinks, etc., that make you crash and I figured this was something along those lines. My intentions were to simply hand them off to another runner when I rounded a bend (so I didn't look ungrateful). That is, until I looked down at the package and read 95% Organic Products. Okay,so now I was intrigued!


I slowed my pace down a bit and this is what I read on the package of my strawberry Clif Shot Bloks:


  • Organic brown rice syrup

  • Organic evaporated cane juice

  • Pectin

  • Citric acid

  • Natural flavor

  • Black carrot juice concentrate

  • Organic sunflower oil

  • Carnauba wax


So, what did I do next? I tore open that package, popped three in my mouth and then......

Why I Love These Bloks

About 15 minutes after I ate these surprisingly delicious organic squares, I had more energy than before I started the race. These things are fabulous! They are ideal for any athlete playing any sport or engaging in any type of exercise. Also, because they're natural, you don't get that crash feeling after! I'm not going to lie, I eat them before my P90X workouts too! How else am I suppose to get through them?

  • Orange

  • Black Cherry

  • Tropical Punch

You know, my knees used to ache until I started running in Vibram FiveFingers. I never would have believed it if I didn't experience it myself. :)

You've introduced me to something entirely new. Now I just wish I had the knees that would allow me to run!

From what I understand..the black carrot is used for coloring....but yes I've never heard of a black carrot either!
