PROBAR Bolt Organic Energy Chews Review and Giveaway




Ah, to be young again!  I look at my kids, see them run and play for hours, slide, fall, get up and do it all over again, then go to bed and wake up with as much energy as they did the day before.


I keep them well fueled with good food, lots of water and lots of rest, but there are days when they need to go on overdrive.  For example, last weekend, when 3Po and Jammy played 2 soccer games per day for 3 days (their regular soccer practice plus a weekend tournament).  The weather was hot and sunny, and we could literally see them wilting before our eyes.  They literally run themselves to the ground, so on game days we let them have energy chews to give them that extra boost.

PROBAR recently sent me a box of their new PROBAR Bolt Energy Chews, and I told 3Po and Jammy they could have them at half time of every game.  Something must have clicked, because their team fought their way to the finals and to a second-place finish!  The kids really like them because they look and taste like gummy candy, and I really like them because they're organic, and they keep my kids going.

About Bolt
Ready, set, Bolt! These organic chews step up your game right when you need it. They're packed to power you from morning workouts to race days. Plus, they're loaded with electrolytes, B vitamins, antioxidants and complex carbs for fast fuel-ups that last through the home stretch.

Bolt comes in 4 flavors:  Berry Blast, Orange, Raspberry and Strawberry.  All of them taste great, but we're reluctant to let the boys have the Berry Blast and the Raspberry, because they contain caffeine from Yerba Mate (as far as I can tell, the Orange and Strawberry flavors do not contain caffeine).



I kept the Berry Blast and Raspberry flavors for myself, and I pop a couple of cubes in my mouth every Sunday after my weekly long run.  One serving is 5 cubes, and each pack has 10 cubes or two servings, but since my runs only last 45 minutes or so, my energy levels aren't really depleted.   However, the next time I do a 10k or a half-marathon, I'm definitely packing some Bolt chews to help me get through the course!
