I purchased this box for my hubby after lots of searching. This box is sold by Runnerbox and I was glad to find this one for Mike. The box cost $19.95 + $6.95 s&h and arrived 6 days after they charged my account. I was surprised when I saw it in my mailbox, they ship via USPS priority without tracking information. I had to wait for Mike to finish his evening ride and then we dug in.
The first item in the box is peeking underneath the green tissue paper, a Runnerbox microfiber towel. The price on the information card says ~$5.
Generation UCAN tropical orange: powder drink that claims to sustain energy and optimize performance. Mike said he’d give it a try on a long ride. ~$3.25
Mud Energy Gel: this gel has 12g of protein and electrolytes in a chocolate flavor. Mike was excited with this one, he uses energy gels often. They include a 30% code for future orders. ~$3.35
Pure Clean Powder: this product claims to boost performance. It is a pure beet powder that can be mixed with water, juices, or in smoothies. A little worried since it can lower blood pressure…this one will be researched further before it’s used. ~$1.50
WIN Detergent: a sports detergent that helps get rid of sweaty smells and is safe for performance fabrics. I may order this after we try it out, his cycling gear is always air dried and extra care is great for his expensive clothing. ~$1.00
Veggie-Go’s Chewy Fruit & Veggie Snack: this is a Carrot, Apple, Ginger flavor low calorie snack. I was going to take it and Mike said it was his box…LOL! Coupon code for this so if it’s good we can order some more and try other flavors. ~$1.40
Aardvark Ankle Biters: Mike was the most excited about this item. He has wanted to commute to work on Fridays since we work half days for the Summer. It holds your pants to protect from chains and at night works for visibility. ~$3.00
Grease Monkey Wipes: I thought these were neat since Mike has been known to have a greasy chain mark or hands every now and then. Going in with his cycling items ASAP. ~$0.40
The next items are great for Mike to try out and add to his snacks on long endurance rides. Protein and energy items are always needed.
PureFit Premium Protein Bar: this bar has 18g of protein in Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and it says it doesn’t melt. Great promo code included as well. ~$2.00
Fuel 100 Salty Vanilla Electro-Bites: this one feels like crunchy bites in the packet. They dissolve easily for quick absorption and have 100 calories. Yeah another coupon code. ~$1.00
Honey Stinger Waffle: he’s tried this brand before and finds them at Academy or HEB. He hasn’t tried the waffle though, another one for his ride snack bin. ~$1.50
Lenny & Larry’s FIT Protein Brownie: in Peanut Butter Crunch (I wanted to try this one…mmmm) it has 13g protein, 7g fiber, and it’s non-GMO. Coupon code for http://www.lennylarry.com will be checking out the products! ~$2.00
EBOOST: a pink lemonade energy powder with only 10 calories. He didn’t seem as excited about this one but he said he’d try it out. ~$1.50
I really enjoyed finding some brands Mike hasn’t tried yet. I tend to pick up random samples for him to try and this is a great way for him to discover new items. The value was about the same as the cost of the box and shipping. I will continue this subscription since it’s more about him trying new things than a great deal. The coupon codes included for 7 out of 13 items in the box were a great bonus. There were also two additional coupons for matcha green tea and free gum. The gum was $4.99 for shipping so we will not order that though. Definitely a great gift idea for any runner, cyclist, or triathlete.
