Munk Pack Review

Munk PackFood on the go is a must for endurance enthusiasts of any kind. The runner, the biker, the hiker, and even the late for work and still need a good breakfast-er.

I find my biggest offense of on-the-go eating is cycling. Taking long rides requires carrying extra calories in the back of my jersey to sustain my energy level. One item that I've been loving throughout this summer is Munk Pack. I've used them for hiking, biking and every one in while for an afternoon pick me up or an easy breakfast.

One of the things Munk Pack is getting right is their packaging. It's easy to pack along in the back of a jersey and won't take up too much real estate in your backpack when hiking. I find when I'm working hard I can't take in too many calories at once. I like that I can take a quick squeeze, screw the lid back on and hit in again later when I'm hungry.

In their efforts to make this a convenient and quick snack Munk Pack did not neglect flavor. That's right. They taste good! Food that tastes good? What a great idea! A lot of other endurance friendly snacks I've tried are all about sugar, carbs and convenience and lot less focus seems to be going toward flavor. Eating Munk Pack was such a nice change from my normal food choices of gel like substances and hard to choke back granola bars. My personal favorite is the Raspberry Coconut.

I loved that while I was out doing something good for myself I was also fueling myself with real food. I found I had enough sugar from the fruit and plenty of carbohydrates from the oatmeal or quinoa to keep my energy level where it needed to be. By the end of a long ride, after eating Munk Pack my stomach wasn't churning due to all the crap I had to consume to do a lot of miles. Munk Pack goes down smooth, tastes great and will leave your stomach happy. Check out their website for the nutrition facts and to order a box for yourself.
