Loving the BITE: Coconutz Fuel Review and Giveaway

Overall, I felt great on the ride and feel that Coconutz definitely contributed to good, steady energy throughout it.  I encourage any reader to give these a try!  They definitely have my stamp of approval and I look forward to using them in the future.  I’d love to see how they perform in sub-freezing temps…since they are bite-size, they may be perfect for cold-winter sports (winter bikers, ice-climbers and back country/Nordic skiers deal with frozen, inedible fuel too often).

Try Coconutz Fuel For Yourself:

The CocoNutz Fuel contest is now closed.  Congratulations to The Group Ride, who wins a starter kit.  Thanks to all of you who left comments.

 

After reading all of this, would you too like to try Coconutz Fuel?  Well, you may be in luck because Casey’s giving a Starter Pack away to one lucky Loving the Bike reader.

All you have to do is enter a comment below, on why you’d like to try them, or on what you already think about them (if you’ve already tried them).  I’ll choose a commenter at random for the prize at noon on Friday August 17th, mountain time (so get your comments in soon!).

Post-Script:  Since writing this review, Casey has provided this feedback:

  • Agave was chosen as the sweetener due to the desire to have a vegan product (as you assumed)
  • Regarding how the CocoNutz Fuel balls work in sub-freezing temperatures, they work great! We sponsored a frozen bike race and the balls performed wonderfully in 16 degree (Fahrenheit) temps. Additionally, we had an ice climber review the product and she loved them (http://www.examiner.com/review/coconutz-fuel-bite-size-superfood-energy-balls-review). They worked great for her in the cold temps as well.

Fuel Your Ride.  Nourish Your Body.

    Went Paleo in March and this seems like a great source of energy for long-distance tri-training!

    I’d love to give them a shot on my next big ride, Sub-5 hour century. I’m always looking for tasty and portable energy in the bike.

  • Marjolein Schat

    Sounds like a great product. I’ll have to look for it at my local stores, or suggest it if they don’t carry this product. I like the idea of something solid.

    The texture was a nice change from gooey-ness and stickiness of many other sports foods. They worked well for me in addition to my homebrew carbs + lytes drink – so I was able to get in all the lytes, carbs, and fluids needed.

    I love coconut and like the ball-shaped bite size bits. The look also reminds me of malted milk balls. :)

    I love coconut oil. I use it for everyday cooking all the time. I try to use it in my post ride shakes as well. This would be a welcomed opportunity to try something with the benefits of coconut out on the bike too!

  • Rebecca

    I am so new to cycling and fueling that I would love a chance to get started on the right foot! And I’m a huge fan of all things coconut.

    Awesome! Thanks for the comments so far. I was really excited to share this post as I really think it’s a great product that will work well for many cyclists. And, I just added that I’ll choose the prize winner at noon (mtn time) tomorrow, so keep the comments coming!

  • Eric Storms

    I am training for a century and have some long rides coming. I’d love to give these a try and see how they compare to my current fueling strategies.

  • Sarah

    I’m up for anything that gives me more energy. I am gluten free so this looks like it will work well for me.

    I would like to give it a try. Can you send it to Brazil?

  • Bill

    I would like to try this. That coconut milk ice cream also sounds tasty as well.

  • Jeremy

    I have learnt to trust the advice of Kelli so I would like to try this product out. I’m always interested in trying out new fueling options.

    This sounds like a nice alternative to the usual energy fuels out there. I would love to try it out.
