One of Rodeo Lab’s founders, Stephen Fitzgerald, has a family connection with a bakery in the Pacific Northwest. Bake Works is run by his dad and his brother and has been a family business for almost 20 years. When we say bakery, we mean a fully modern food creation facility that serves healthy (and guilty pleasure) products to millions of people around the USA every year. They had previously asked to sponsor a team, but didn’t have any products that fit well with sports nutrition. Enter Rodeo Labs.
Rodeo Labs decided to collaborate with them to dream up a bar of their own the way they wanted it done: Simple, all natural, and delicious. The result is the Rodeo Trail Nugget! Date-based with delicious mix ins like almonds, beets, lemon oil or peanut butter, these bars are all natural and totally delicious. The flavor is so light and pure, and the texture is soft enough to be eaten and digested easily. Everyone at The Feed, UNANIMOUSLY, says they are amazing! If you're looking for something new that will be the best bar you've ever tasted, you're going to want to order a few, or 40 trail nuggets!
Feed's Fave: Lemon Almond Hot Date
We use it 1-2 hours before low-intensity exercise or during long duration, low-intensity exercise. If you eat them during intense exercise, take small bites to allow for digestion.
GU Energy Gels have been a staple of fueling for endurance sports for the past 20 years. Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Gel provides energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of any duration or activity. The 100-calorie packet contains carbohydrates (maltodextrin and fructose) that use non-competing pathways to help maximize carbohydrate absorption while diminishing stomach distress. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance and optimizing nutrient delivery. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage. It is important to remember to always drink water when taking these gels, since water is used in the digestion process. Some flavors of these gels also contain caffeine to increase mental focus and decrease fatigue.
GU energy gels come in a wide variety of unique flavors so you’re sure to find one you like. Some of the Gu flavors have more caffeine than others. Caramel Macchiato, Espresso Love, and Jet Blackberry all have 40mg caffeine, while all other flavors marked with caffeine have 20mg. Peanut Butter, Strawberry Banana, Lemon Sublime, and Big Apple are the only flavors without any caffeine.
The Feed’s Fave: Vanilla Bean
Take one gel with 8 oz. of water 30-60 minutes before a training session or competition. Take one additional gel every hour of exercise, especially for training or competition lasting longer than 2 hours. As mentioned above, be sure to drink water with the gel to optimize its fuel delivery and prevent dehydration. Try these out in training first to see how your body responds to them before using them in competition.
Skratch has branched out and created their own energy chews; they call them Energy Chews. With the same focus on science and great ingredients, Skratch Labs Energy Chews use only real fruit for flavor, are loaded with sodium, are less sweet than most other chews, and utilize a specific ratio of fructose and glucose so you can get energy sooner. Skratch Labs Energy Chews have a higher moisture content which makes them less syrupy, sticky, or overly sweet. They also have a higher sodium content, about 160mg per pouch, which will help you replace those essential electrolytes lost through sweat during exercise. The blend of cane sugar and tapioca syrup better matches the ratio of transporters for glucose and fructose in the small intestine. This improves energy absorption so you can get the most out of every single Skratch Labs Energy Chews.
Skratch Labs Energy Chews don't use carnauba wax, coloring or flavoring agents, or excess ingredients that aren’t necessary. Skratch Labs Energy Chews are dipped in a sour sugarcoating to add a unique taste. They’re delicious, energizing, and the perfect chew to fuel your next workout.

Feed’s Fave: Raspberry
These are our go-to product for that mid workout boost. This product allows us to avoid bonking mid workout with out overpowering us with a sticky, overly sweet flavor.
Bobo's Oat Bars have been a local Boulder favorite for over 10 years. Bobo started baking bars in her kitchen and hasn't lost her home-made taste even though she has out-grown her kitchen! Bobo's Oat Bars come in 16 delicious flavors that are all gluten-free, non-GMO, wheat free and vegan. They are nutritionally dense with a great blend of high-quality ingredients. We love Bobo's because they are they are calorie dense, yet don't feel like a firm brick when you bite into them.
The Feed’s Fave: Peanut Butter, Original or Lemon Poppyseed.
Bobo’s Oat Bars are ideal as a grab-and-go breakfast, a midday snack, or fuel for long endurance sports. If you're training with Bobo's, we recommend eating half a bar at a time to give your body the chance to digest them properly.

Clif Bloks have been around since 2005, so we know they are a trusted and popular Clif product. These chews combine multiple sources of fast-absorbing carbohydrates, allowing them be used quickly and efficiently for fuel. They also changed the energy chew game when they first came on the scene by adding electrolytes to help replenish what you lose when you sweat and allow for optimal hydration and fuel delivery.
We love Clif Bloks because each cube is measured to deliver a precise amount of calories, carbohydrates, and electrolytes so you know exactly how much you’re getting. Each blok as 33 calories and 8 grams of carbs, making it easy to adjust your intake to fit your personal nutrition needs. This makes it easier to know how many tubes you need to take with you for that long ride! Not to mention, the sleek and portable packaging make them easy to carry in a jersey pocket for a mid-workout energy boost.
Black cherry, orange, and tropical punch contain caffeine for an added performance boost. Salted watermelon and margarita flavors contain double the sodium for those who are heavy sweaters or when you need more on a hot/humid day. Be sure to consume these chews with plenty of fluids, the technology of the Clif Bloks work best with adequate hydration.
The Feed’s Faves: Tropical Punch or Mountain Berry
One serving is three blocks, or half of a tube. During your workouts lasting longer than an hour, we suggest eating 2-3 blocks every 20-30 minutes. If you tend to have stomach issues with chews, eating less than 3 blocks at a time may be more manageable. The key is once you begin eating blocks, or any fast-acting energy, you need to continue consuming them throughout your workout. The sleek packaging makes them easy to slip into your jersey pocket and eat them on the go!
The ProBar Bolt Chew is gluten free, dairy free and organic. Each chew is bite-sized and has a great blend of electrolytes, complex carbohydrates and B-vitamins to ensure you get the nutrition you need during exercise. The flavor is subtle and slightly tart. They also have a consistency more akin to fruit snacks. They are easy to consume on rides and give the perfect hit of energy when you need it.
It is important to remember to consume water with these chews when using them during exercise.
The Feed’s Fave: Berry Blast
We use these chews right before exercise or during medium-high intensity exercise. If we're feeling extra tired, we opt for the Berry Blast of Raspberry flavors which contain caffeine from yerba mate. Wash these bad boys down with a little water and receive that perfect hit of energy.
Nuun Sport Hydration is an electrolyte-enhanced drink tablet that is designed to replace electrolytes lost during exercise and keep you hydrated. It comes in individual tubes that are great for carrying with you on longer rides or run. Just pop one into 16 oz. of water and all of your hydration needs are covered! These tablets are also great for hydrating throughout the day by adding some excitement and flavor to your water without the excess sugar you find in the average sports drink.
It comes in 14 different flavors so you're sure to find something you like. The effervescent bubbles add a little sparkle to your bottle, which can help with stomach upset from intense exercise. All tablets are gluten free, vegan, informed choice, and contain non-geo sourced dextrose.
Feed's Fave: Lemon Lime..but they are all amazing!
These are great for meeting any and all of your on-the-go hydration needs. Throw one of these convenient tubes in your gym bag, backpack, or suitcase and never be without adequate hydration again. The more you sweat and the longer you exercise, the more electrolytes you lose. So, for longer duration training, drink 1-2 servings per hour of intense exercise to optimize hydration and prevent cramping.
Which Nuun Is Right For You: Nuun Active:
Here at The Feed, we know how important it is to focus on recovery nutrition. That’s why we love Fluid Recovery! This was one of our first recovery mixes at The Feed....it tastes great and it works. It contains the optimal blend of nutrients that, when taken immediately after exercise, can help you recover faster, adapt to training better, and get back to 100% quicker for that next hard session. Fluid Recovery contains a 3:1 ratio of carbs to protein to promote replenishing of energy stores and rebuilding of muscles. It contains electrolytes to help with hydration and optimal fuel and fluid delivery to tired muscles. This mix also had L-glutamine, an amino acid that may help with inflammation and immune function, both of which need special attention for athletes.
Fluid Recovery is gluten-free, lactose-free, and even has a dairy and soy free option. It comes in five tasty flavors that provide exciting alternatives to the same old chocolate and vanilla. But if you like the same old chocolate, their Chocolate Wave will not disappoint. It tastes like a tall, delicious glass of chocolate milk and is a personal favorite here at The Feed. Kick start your recovery process by taking one of these convenient single serve packets with you for after your next workout!
The Feed’s Fave: Chocolate Wave
We love to mix this up in a blender bottle after an intense cardio or endurance session. Mixes easy, tastes great, and gives muscles exactly what they need to perform the following day. Mix one serving with 8-12 oz. of water or your favorite milk or milk alternative for an easy to digest, on the go protein packed recovery drink! Drink within 30-60 minutes of a hard session to kickstart the recovery process.
