I’ve just returned from Kailua-Kona, Hawaii where I had a chance to sample a limited edition flavor from GU Energy Labs, new Island Nectars Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Gel. Like its predecessors in the Roctane family, Island Nectars packs a high concentration of amino acids, electrolytes and quality carbohydrates in each 100-calorie gel pack. While undeniably a high performance fuel, Island Nectars’ delightfully tropical taste, with hints of passion fruit and guava, teases the tongue like a fresh and fruity dessert.
GU’s release of Island Nectars Roctane coincides with two Hawaiian Island-hosted World Championship events – the Ironman and XTERRA triathlons. Aside from the event expos, the limited edition flavor is also available online, so get it while it lasts!
