Review: Food Groove Mission Super Food Bites

Disclaimer: I received an order of Food Groove Mission Super Bites to review as part of being a BibRave Pro. Learn more about becoming a BibRave Pro (ambassador), and check out to review find and write race reviews!

I usually don’t go out to stores and buy food products such as these mainly because I’ve had bad experiences with “natural” foods and have disliked the taste of them quite a bit. But I have to admit these are different. They actually taste pretty darn good and they’re full of healthy ingredients too! There are three flavors to choose from: The Nutty Adventurer, Holy Truffle Punch and Mother Earth.

The Nutty Adventurer is exactly how it sounds. Organic peanut butter is the main ingredient that differs from the other two options. What I liked most about this one was it was more than just peanut butter in taste. It’s there, for sure, but it doesn’t dominate the flavor of the bite.

Holy Truffle Punch is for the chocolate lover in all of us. Organic dark chocolate and organic cacao nibs are the two key ingredients to provide that chocolate “punch” and make this super bite just plain delicious. Just take a look at the other ingredients in these. (Picture provided by the Food Groove Mission website)

Finally, Mother Earth, the flavor that has turned out to be my favorite (which shocks me completely!) beating out chocolate and peanut butter, which is insane! Mother Earth is full of so many amazing flavors, such as dates, goji berries, golden berries, chia seeds and pumpkin seeds (and more), all organic of course!

Food Groove Mission has done a great job with these Super Food Bites. A small company out of Dallas, they wanted runners and triathletes to not only have a healthy, filling snack but for it to be portable and an easy on-the-go treat packed with energy ingredients. Another plus: they can be enjoyed by everyone! Gluten free, non-GMO, dairy free, soy free and grain free is what you get with all three options! (Holy Truffle Punch and Mother Earth are also paleo friendly)

Trust someone who was not a fan of snacks like this before, these have great flavor and provide great energy for whatever athletic feat you are attempting that day! Good stuff!

Happy Running!


How I Fuel Long Runs

Disclaimer: I am an ambassador for Honey Stinger and their products.


Now, even though I am an ambassador for Honey Stinger, the HS Hive, I do actually enjoy their products and feel that they work best for me. That’s the biggest key right there. It isn’t as if I haven’t tried multiple options that exist in the refueling industry and it took some disappointing experiences to land on the one company who made products that agreed with me and my body.

I love Honey Stinger’s gummy gels. Just like a fruit snack and they don’t have some weird aftertaste. Great for a sugar boost and Vitamin C. I know a lot of folks prefer other brands, Gatorade gels come to mind, but my experience with those in particular have never been good, especially in the middle of a race. Upset stomach. Substance all over my hands making them sticky and nasty on a hot day. Not so good aftertaste hanging around while you run which is also unpleasant. And Honey Stinger doesn’t just provide gummies for a carb boost for those long runs.

These organic waffles are really good. A little dry if it’s an extremely hot day and you don’t want dry mouth but water helps solve that issue. And delicious flavors too! The one pictured here, vanilla, was OK, in my opinion, but the real treat is in their honey waffle and ginger waffles. Damn good and, just like the gummies, they give you some serious boost and uplift when you might be dragging in the latter stages of that long run.

There are a lot of options out there and you deserve to sample all of them. Like I said, what works for one may not work for another. But I must suggest giving the Honey Stinger products a shot. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed.

And, just out of curiosity, what is it that you use in your long runs? Please comment with your choice; I love to see and hear all the options out there!

Happy (long) running!!
