Sometimes you just need a break from chews and gels, but don't want to be bogged down with complex foods.
This product from GU is a great alternative.
The Stroopwafel is a dutch style treat that acts like an energy gel but tastes like breakfast. Created for use before and during workouts, the new GU Energy Stroopwafel provides you with everything you need for a workout or quick snack. These waffles contain both complex and simple carbohydrates that provide long-lasting energy, essential amino acids to repair muscle damage during long-duration activities, and electrolytes to help optimize nutrient and fluid delivery.
The Stroopwafel is made with a layer of delicious syrup between two thin wafers, and it’s individually packaged to make it portable for a ride or run. All GU Stroopwafels are made with sustainably sourced Palm Fruit Oil and are informed choice certified, so they are a snack you can feel good about. These amazing Stroopwafels come in a wide variety of flavors, so you’re sure to find one you like. Some flavor even have caffeine for an added energy boost.
The Stroopwafel has become a part of our morning ritual before we head out to train. We like to warm them up in the microwave or dunk them in our morning cup of coffee for a tasty way to fuel for a morning session. They contain easily digestible fuel that doesn’t cause stomach upset, so they can be consumed as close as 60 minutes before exercise. You can also carry them with you for an energy boost during a long ride or run!
