Rokit Fuel Holy Pinole Energy Mix

This morning I decided to go check out a "rail trail" that's about a 20 minute drive from my house, where I was aiming to run about 10 miles and then bike a few more ... but where oh where was my pack of Powerbar Gel Blasts? Had the unthinkable happened - could I possibly have run out?! After much internal debate, I decided to take a pack of Rokit Fuel Holy Pinole Energy Mix which was sent to me by the company to review, and which I had yet to try. I wasn't sure this was the best move, because I would be stuck without anything to refuel with if this tasted ... nasty. But, since I've had only positive reviews of Rokit Fuel products in the past, I hoped there would be nothing to worry about.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 1 pouch (1/2 cup)
Calories: 250
Total Fat: 1 gram, 5%
Saturated Fat: 0%
Sodium: 130 mg, 5%
Carbohydrates: 39 grams
Fiber: 8 grams, 32%
Sugar: 10 grams
Protein: 7 grams

The directions read, open pouch, hydrate with enough water, milk or juice to moisten and refuel by squeezing into your mouth (I only poured out the ingredients to see what it looked like and snap a picture - after that I spooned it all back into the pouch before taking it with me to the trail). At the 6 mile mark, I stopped running and did just that - and it was crazy good! I will admit to being VERY skeptical, but the ingredient combination seemed to give this an interesting texture - slightly chewy - and give me energy at the same time. I think cinnamon was the predominant flavor, and the oats, flax seeds, chia seeds & nuts definitely shone as well. I wasn't in a race or any competition, so I took my time and walked for a bit, ate this (about 1/2 the pack) and drank water - and running back, I felt pretty darn good.

Rokit Fuel Stud Muffin Cereal

Since I had already experienced Rokit Fuel Cherry Almond Cereal Review, I knew it was heavy on the oats, so this morning, when I wanted a filling breakfast (8 mile run yesterday and 2400 yard swim today demands fuel), I decided to have Rokit Fuel Stud Muffin Cereal as a "hot cereal" breakfast.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 95 grams
Calories: 380
Total Fat: 12 grams, 18%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram,, 5%
Sodium: 135 mg, 6%
Carbohydrates: 63 grams
Fiber: 6 grams, 24%
Sugars: 23 grams
Protein: 9 grams

I boiled some water and added it to the Rokit cereal already in a bowl and stirred it around - this absorbs water. The taste was sweet, but not too much so and it seemed like every bite had a crunch from nuts - I thought it was almonds, but there's also sunflower seeds, pecans, sesame seeds and walnuts listed in the ingredients list. There was also quite a bit of blueberries (which to me tasted like chocolate chives - possibly because of all the spices added), and I love my tart cherries in cereal, but they seemed to lose the tartness here. Still, I LOVED this as a "hooked up oatmeal." Quite tasty and very filling.

Rokit Fuel Cherry Almond Cereal

I saw Rokit Fuel products when I was looking around for some highly portable products that could provide energy when I'm on long hikes, A friend of mine swears by this brand, so being the curious bee that I am, I got some information and samples from the company to try out for a review. One of the first products I tried was Rokit Fuel Cherry Almond Cereal.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 89 grams
Calories: 360
Total Fat: 12 grams, 18%
Saturated Fat: 1 gram,, 5%
Sodium: 220 mg, 9%
Carbohydrates: 57 grams
Fiber: 9 grams, 36%
Sugars: 23 grams
Protein: 10 grams

This cereal comes individually packaged in an 89 gram pint-sized container. The packaging looks totally bad-ass. "Not for Wussies" it says, and I ain't no wuss! Clearly I couldn't eat this cereal on just any regular old day, so I waited until the morning of a 4 hour, hilly hike and fueled up.

First thing I noticed was it has plenty of oats. I added unsweetened almond milk, stirred it around and got to tasting. It's very sweet, something I didn't expect, but also really good. When you chomp on a piece of cherry, its such a rockstar moment - the taste is phenomenal - sweet but with a little hint of tartness. Too bad there's not more (cherries) because it's definitely the star of the show!
