Skratch Labs Hydration: Review & Giveaway! (GIVEAWAY Blog Hop)

Disclaimer: I received samples of Skratch Labs Hydration for review purposes.  I was not required to write a review nor was I requested to write a positive review.  All opinions are my own and i have received no compensation for this post.  I am not a medical professional.

I am so excited to be participating in my very first Blog Hop with Kristy over at Runaway Bridal Planner and Ericka at MCM Mama Runs.


Perfect right?  I'm thankful for you!  So I had to participate!

I am also excited that my GIVEAWAY is for Skratch Labs Hydration mix.  I am giving away a bag of Matcha Lemon & Lime ($19.50) and a bag of Orange flavored hydration mix ($19.50).  Also included for the lucky winner is a Skratch Nalgene bottle ($12.50).


I am guessing what you are thinking.  Another Hydration mix?  Why can't we just stick with the one you talked about last week?  Well, Skratch is different.  It is different because there are absolutely NO preservatives, NO caking agents, NO artificial colors, NO artificial flavors and contains calories.  Wait what?  Calories?  Why is that a good thing?  


In addition to the electrolytes that need to be replaced during strenuous activity, you are also burning thru your sugar and carb stores.  Well, when you ingest small quantities of Skratch during your run, you are restoring the energy your body needs.  


And its only flavored with REAL fruit!  So when it says oranges, you know the flavor comes from REAL oranges!  I personally like using Skratch DURING a run because I never feel depleted.  And it is delicious and I have NEVER had any stomach issues with it.

Well, here is your chance to try it!  One lucky winner will get 1 bag of Skratch Hydration with Oranges, 1 bag of Skratch Hydration with lemon & lime (matcha caffeine) and 1 Nalgene Skratch Labs bottle.  Enter on the Rafflecopter widget.

  44. I won't touch any hydration 'stuff' other than Skratch these days; I swear by the pineapple, but would love more of the new matcha flavor. I have a packet to try I haven't touched because I hear it's even better than my beloved pineapple!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Still relatively new to running, so I pretty much hydrate with water and replenish with Sport Beans. I'm definitely looking for some more options, though.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I would choose the pineapple flavor. I like that it's low calories and not a lot of chemicals

    ReplyDelete
  47. I would choose Lemons and Limes or Orange! I like that it "won't upset your stomach, leave a bad taste in your mouth, or challenge your IQ with tongue twisting chem-lab ingredients."

  51. Raspberry sounds good to me.
    After mixing, you should drink it within a day and it can be drunk warm (if you don't have ice or a cooler).

    ReplyDelete
  52. I would choose the raspberry!
