Sharing Saturday - PROBAR BOLT Energy Chews

I mentioned it a while back, but I was lucky enough to be asked to be a part of the PROBAR Blogger Network. One of the many AMAZING perks of this relationship is being sent product to try out, stock up on, etc.

Aren't they lucky to have me?! HA!

Well, one of my FAVORITE products from PROBAR are their BOLT Energy Chews. Like, legit, they are the way I fuel for EVERY long run.

Lucky for you, I have a couple extra boxes in my cupboard and I figured, instead of continuing to stockpile and hoard them, I would offer one of those cases up to a lucky reader. I mean, that is the point of Sharing Saturday, right?!

I've used Gu and Powerbar chews in the past. Would love to give these ProBar's a try!

Either honey stingers or cliff bar

AER-Runs said...

I've used Gu before, but these look delicious! Strawberry is one of my favorite flavors so I'm dying to try them out!

Kara said...

My go to is a chocolate clif shot, tastes like brownie batter to me :D

Sarah N. said...

I use Gu fir my long runs. Salted Carmel is my favorite.

The Silent Assassin said...

Green tea, SOS, oatmeal 1 hour before the run.
Vega Energizer (sugar free) 30 mins before the run.
40 mins into the run, Vega hydrator/SOS, honey stinger chews
...and every hour after that, pocket fuel.
I'm down to try these if they make me fast like you.

Song Bird said...

Ezekiel Bread with 1 tbs natural peanut butter and half a banana in the morning before my run. Just getting into longer distances so I haven't actually tried any gels or chews. I'm interested in testing some out though. On my longest run i did bring a small packet of fruit snacks.

Ben Taylor said...

Love these for long runs

Diane Estrella said...

Anything with great electolytes!

Bain said...

I've never tried these. I've tried all manner of other things, and some disagree with my tummy (the blackberry Hammer gels) and others don't (any kind of gel or Gu or Clif Shot in vanilla).

Jen Wagner said...

I would LOVE to win these! I just bought my first pack--blueberry--at my local running store this past week and plan to try them out before my 16 miler tomorrow. I'm training for my first marathon and really hope to incorporate these into my training/fueling plan!!! :)

Rhett said...

Been using Honey Stingers as fuel but willing to try something else. Also may need an extra water bottle on my running belt. Ran out on my 13-miler this morning. Whoops!

Ruth C said...

I like the Bolt chews

Amy Lauren said...

I've been eating Go Macro bars before long runs (I won some in a giveaway), but I'd love to try Pro Bars. I've eaten everything from oatmeal to pop tarts to granola bars but I do some fasted, too.

Gina Gallagher said...

I love energy chews and Jelly Belly Sport Beans.

Dez said...

I love ProBar protein bars. I didn't know they made chews.

Ken Christensen said...

Raisins or Bolts

Julie Burleson said...

I've been using Gatorade Endurance Chews lately, and they seem to be working well for me. I have been meaning to try the ProBar Chews though! They seem like they would work great!

Tayna said...

I used to take Gu but I've recently started using Cliff Blocks and I LOVE them!

Stephanie Abdon said...

ummm...candy corn...hides face ;)

redaussie3 said...

I use Cliff shot bloks with UCAN to start off with. I would love to get away from fueling with carbs but don't have the training cycle time to try it.

Jennifer Stephens said...

My go to fuel for long runs is Cliff shots before and Gatorade gels during.

Melissa Murray said...

Love ClifBlocks (Cran Razz) or Sport Beans, but these look pretty awesome too!

Sara Goodhind said...

I usually eat a bowl of oatmeal before long runs.

Stephen Massey said...

Usually GU

Leah Jones said...

I've been using a lot of "real" food (granola bars, fruit) to fuel lately. I like Gu but sometimes my tummy doesn't!

Sadie said...

I use Honey Stingers for my long runs.

I normally use my Jelly Belly Running Beans, but I think I need to make a CHANGE. I sure would love to try PROBAR BOLT!!

Staci said...

Love the Clif Shot Blocks, Honey Stinger Waffles and Bonk Breakers. Gu's work on my shorter distance but have learned I can't stomach them for my longer runs!

Emily N. said...

I just make sure to eat a meal with protein before hand.

Lauren S said...

I love these chews! I also use Gu or plain old gummy bears on long runs!

Tami said...

I use gu or honey stinger!!

FireRunner2379 said...

My fuel of choice is Peanut Butter GU.

Erica @ Erica Finds said...

I typically use GU or Honey Stinger Chews. I like these and am trying the Skratch ones as well.

Sarah said...

I currently use Gu - but I've used the Honey Stinger chews before. Would be interested in trying these ones out.

Sarah Hartman said...

I do not go on super long runs but when I do I love macrobars! They are vegan, and have 12 grams of protein

Suzanne said...

Awesome blog!!! You are so kind and shareful! I know that might not be a word, but I think it can work for you!!

Dani said...

I usually choose cliff shots.

FunRunner said...

I usually use clif shot bloks, but would love to try probar

Paula Villadelgado said...

A combo of sorts is what I like to use when running: squeezable applesauce banana blend pouches, honey stinger cherry cola flavored chews (heck it's my opportunity to have "soda" since I don't like soda) and obviously Probar chews. Strawberry is my fave too!

Jennifer Reno said...

I use Honey Stinger and GU Roctane gels. I'd love to try some Probar!

D Johnson said...

Luna protein bars.

Sara Lim said...

currently I love using Gu and honey stinger waffles!

Rachel said...

I've used honey stinger waffles, probar bite, pretzels, and pbj.

Lots of carbs like a bagel

Jennifer Herman said...

My go to is a protein bar.

John Herman said...

I like granola bars and apples.

renata said...

I like fueling up and hydrating up with a smoothie made with coconut water!

Megan T. said...

I tend to use a GU or Clif chews - both are ok, but I think I prefer the chews a little more.

Musings of a Girly Tomboy said...

I stumbled upon these at our local co-op and haven't stopped using them since. Love them for pre-runs and soccer games, coupled with Hammer Gel during the long runs! Hope I win ;) Thanks for donating them! Xoxo, ganeebN

A Martin said...

My go-to fuel is GoMacro bars!

Chocolate Gu
