Salty Yeti trains hard. How about you?
GU’s 2014 Limited Edition flavor, Mid-Winter Salted Caramel Energy Gel, was created not just to taste great – which it does (Come on, it’s salted caramel!), but to meet the unique demands of winter training.
In his article Exercising in Cold Weather, Skratch Labs’ founder Allen Lim points out that we have an increased need for glucose while exercising in cold weather. This, and the fact that we’re likely to consume less when we’re cold, means that our drink mixes and nutrition should be especially dense or concentrated in the winter. (Not to mention, they’ll be less likely to freeze with less water.)
GU’s Mid-Winter Salted Caramel, aside from tasty positively yummy (Did we mention: salted caramel?) provides 120mg of elevated electrolytes. There’s more sodium per packet than in regular GU. And 20mg of caffeine means that the energy and electrolytes get delivered to muscle more quickly.
Science aside, GU’s Mid-Winter Salted Caramel Energy Gel just tastes yummy. Seriously, we’re ready to smother our chocolate bars with it, stir it in our coffee and eat it for fun. We might even actually consider training outdoors this winter just to have an excuse to indulge! More likely, we’ll partake while riding in our CompuTrainer Studio this winter. (Don’t judge; we sweat a lot.)
GU Energy Gel is a tasty carbohydrate and electrolyte formula that is absorbed quickly for sustained energy and increased performance on-the-go. The Salted Caramel flavor is a treat to taste buds. Bring some holiday joy to your winter training season with the Limited Edition Mid-Winter Salted Caramel Energy Gel!
