ISO new energy chews

I love Honey Stingers. they are tasty and give me calories on long runs. But, all of a sudden in October, they started making me sick. I’m fructose intolerant and can’t have honey or many other sugars/sweeteners so I was a little surprised that I did okay with Honey Stingers (honey is not at the top of the ingredient list, so I’m not sure how much honey is actually in them).

Toward the end of marathon training this summer/fall, they started making me feel sick every time I ate them and during the Detroit marathon sent me to the port-a-potties too many times (though, really, once is too many).

So now I’m in search of new chews because I’m starting training again in a couple weeks. I think it’s going to be a lot of trial and error testing for a few weeks until I find something that doesn’t give me a tummy ache and is tasty–a delicate balance.
