Strawberry Citrus, Lime-Ade, Fruit Punch, Orange
One day in the store I came across the Clif section and saw the display for Clif Quench. What is it? It's their version of an energy drink, but looking at the ingredient list showed that it was about as natural an energy drink as you could get unless you made it at home.
With just filtered water, organic evaporated cane juice, citric acid, real salt, natural flavors, magnesium lactate, and potassium phosphate making up the ingredient list, Clif Quench gives you the optimal balance of 11 grams of carbs with electrolytes to work in your body in a more effective manner, moving water from your stomach to the rest of your body more easily.
My impression of Clif Quench, lime flavor, was that it had a nice light taste that wasn't too sweet or seemingly too thick. With Gatorade I often have to dilute the drink 1:1 with water, and their version of Propel Water left an aftertaste from whatever artificial sweetener they used.
I drank some (thoroughly chilled, which is the only way to drink Quench since, lime many cold drinks, it tastes better when cold) before and towards the end of a 10 miler and I felt it really helped, giving me a sustained energy that lasted throughout my run, but without hurting my stomach or causing any distress. I didn't feel close to parched like I might normally would have during the end as I would if I had just drank water beforehand.
So I was thinking, "Hey, this is cool stuff! I need to spread the word." I don't normally feel the need to spread the word unless it's relevant to the situation, I can't imagine how walking into Starbucks and telling everyone to try Clif Quench would go over, but it's relevant to my blog. After getting in contact with some awesome people at Clif, they agreed to send each flavor of Clif Quench along with...
Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch, Apricot, Banana Nut Bread, Black Cherry Almond,
White chocolate Macadamia Nut, Blueberry Crisp
Six different flavors of Clif Bars! All for one lucky winner!
