Fuel 100 Electro-Bites Review

Fuel 100 Electro-Bites are a calorie and electrolyte replacement on the go snack for distance athletes.

One of my favorite day hike snacks is the little single serving package of hummus and pretzels.  I can’t think of a better snack to get me back in the game when I’m dragging.  Unfortunately hummus doesn’t keep very well on the trail – not only does it go bad but due to the high […]
