Island Boost Review and Giveaway

I'm always looking for new fuel to try that is easy on my tummy.  Enter Island Boost, a LIQUID instead of a gel, made FOR runners with sensitive stomachs, BY a runner with a sensitive stomach!

Thanks to my run group #RunEatTweetAZ I was able to try out Island Boost.
*All thoughts and opinions are my own*

You can read more about them online, but here's the quick breakdown:


  • Liquid for quicker absorption and easier on the stomach.
  • Few ingredients, including real fruit juice. 
  • Affordable (Available at REI locations and under $20 for a 6-pack online)
  • Tasted like a fun juice squeeze! 

  • A little large. (Made that way so you can tear them open easier, but makes it slightly harder to transport) 
  • Not a fan of the chocolate flavor (I know! And I love chocolate! But the other two flavors are great!)
Now for the fun part! You can WIN a six pack of Island Boost AND a cool Island Boost water bottle! 
Just head on over to the #RunEatTweetAZ Facebook Page HERE

There will be TWO winners, announced on Friday, November 14th. So head on over and good luck! :)  

Now my question to you. Do you find some gels and other mid-run fuel upsetting to your stomach? What have you found to help?  Let me hear your suggestions below! 


  1. I bought a bunch of Island Boost at the Orange County marathon expo early this year. I love the taste and it is easier to eat than a thicker gel, especially late in a race.

  2. I don't have issues with gels as far as tummy troubles. I love Huma Chia gels. They taste great and are easy on the tummy.
