I’ve got a massive sweet tooth. I crave candy daily, eat it like a little kid and generally consider it a basic food group. Forget Monster Energy and Red Bull, they're a waste of my time - I want a Hot Tamales sponsorship. At this point I’m simply relying on my youthful metabolism to keep me alive. Sooner or later, if I don’t increase the exercise program and decrease the sugar intake, I’m destined for a jelly belly. Well, that might not be terrible so long as it’s Jelly Belly’s Sport Beans
. The popular jelly bean maker has branched into the fitness supplement market with electrolyte- and vitamin-packed Sports Beans.
Basically these beans provide easily digested carbohydrates, electrolytes (sodium and potassium), Vitamin C, B1, B2 and B3 – all to help give your body energy and to help it burn that energy more effectively. According to one study cited on sportbeans.com
, ”athletes achieved 32-38 second faster times in the (10 kilometer) trial with Sport Beans rather than water alone.” Flavors include berry, fruit punch, lemon lime, orange and an assorted mix.
They also offer Extreme Sport Beans in watermelon and cherry flavors which have the added bonus of caffeine. Each one-ounce serving pack contains 50 mg of the go-juice, roughly the same as a half-cup of coffee.
It seems I’ve found my calling.
