October Kona Kase Review

Back in May, I shared the items in my first ever Kona Kase.  Even though I haven't been sharing each month, I've still been getting them.  It's nice to get new items to try each month.  This months Kona Kase was especially good and I could not resist sharing again!

This months case was curated by the fine folks at Triathlon Magazine.  And let me tell you, they packed it full!  I have already tried a couple of items and can't wait to try the rest.  Let's dig in.

First up, we had a pack of Skratch Labs Hydration Mix.  It was created and tested by athletes competing in races like the Tour de France.  Excited to try another electrolyte mix.

I also got another of the PowerBar Performance Engery blends.  I have gotten these in a previous box, but this was a new flavor.  I like to use these before races sometimes, so excited to add it to my nutrition.

I am very excited to try this.  I love KIND bars and I imagine there granola will be equally as delicious. I assume this will be eaten for breakfast very soon!

Up next is a packet of Barnana.  This is a new one to me.  They are banana snacks that are packed with nutrients, high in potassium, high in fiber, non-gmo, organic and gluten free.  Excited to try these too.  Think I will try them before a long run/race (replacing my PowerBar Gel Blasts).

 Also included was a packet of FlapJacked Protein Pancakes.  These have already been eating!  Super easy to make (just add water) and very good.  I added chocolate chips to mine (because why not?) and ate them post long run this morning.  High in protein (15-17 grams), great recovery food.

Then we had a packet of Honey Stinger Organic Waffles.  Pam has been talking about these for a while, so I am excited to try.  Might be another one to rotate into the pre-race line-up.

Lastly, we have Musette Bakeries Four Berry Tart.  Nice little sweet treat to round out the box!

Interesting in getting your own Kona Kase?  Sign up by clicking here and you'll get $5 off your first box!

Disclosure: I was not paid or compensated for this post at all.  I paid for this box myself (I doubt Kona Kase even knows who I am) and just wanted to share my excitement about the items.  All opinions are mine.  I am part of the referral program and do get a perk for referring new members who sign up using the above link.  Hope you enjoy your own box if you do buy one!
