I was not compensated for this post, and I am not affiliated with ENERGYbits. I just really dig them.
I really do. Have you tried ENERGYbits yet? I’d never heard of them until I started this blog about a year ago. Then all of a sudden, I was seeing the hashtag #PoweredByBits everywhere. Runners especially seemed to love these “bits,” whatever they were.
Then the folks at ENERGYbits reached out to me and asked if I’d like to try their product. I learned that “bits” are made from algae – sounds strange, but it’s actually the most natural, green, high protein fuel available. It’s also the most nutritionally dense food in the world, but until very recently its benefits were virtually unknown outside of Asia.
I tried bits, and I loved them. I was #PoweredByBits last fall during the 2013 Jacksonville Marine Corps Half Marathon. You can read my full review here.
ENERGYbits has grown quite a lot since then. Nowadays, they’re the fuel of choice for loads of athletes, runners, triathletes, and active people nationwide. They’ve received endorsements from high-profile athletes like the NHL’s Andrew Ference and three-time USA Olympian David Oliver. And FedEx recently released a pretty cool video about ENERGYbits – check it out here: http://access.van.fedex.com
I’m super-excited to help my friends at ENERGYbits celebrate their 5 year anniversary with a giveaway for you! One winner will receive a free sample of bits to try out.

I have never tried them but sure would like to.
Fuel is coffee
Mary Beth Jackson says
I have seen a lot about the energy bits but have not had the chance to try them. I am not a huge fan of swallowing that many pills so I would have to get over that hurdle!
Jessie Powell says
I love Energy Bits! I used them for a half last year and just felt great!

I’ve never tried Energy Bits but have been wanting to for a while now – it’d be awesome to win this! I currently fuel my runs with Nuun and Honeystinger chews.

I haven’t tried them yet (but I have some single serving sizes from Kristy @ pghrunner.com that I plan to try out on my next run.
They’re different than anything I’ve tried, but I like them a lot.
I have not tried,but heard many good things about it.
I like them a lot! Definitely different than any other fuel that I’ve tried so far.

I’ve tried Energybits and I like it a lot too! Only downer is the price, if I have bits I’ll use them otherwise I fuel with GU.
Ditto. My friend Marcia is an ambassador, and you can save 30% on bits if you use her promo code. Just in case you didn’t see it – I added it later to this post. xoxo
I’ve never tried energybits but I’ve heard many great things about them! I love to fuel/hydrate with Nuun tablets but recently I tried GU chews and I loved them!
I’ve actually never tried Nuun, but I’ve heard great things about them too! 🙂
Deborah @ Confessions of a Mother Runner says
I’ve heard a lot about them but have never used them. Glad they work so well for you!

I’ve never tried Energybits. My fuel of choice is usually coffee or a GU Energy Gel.
Both on the top of my list too! 🙂
