The name of one of the newest flavors in the GU Brew line will surely turn some heads, but it gets the point across. The recently reformulated beverage is all about electrolytes and less about carbs with a new lighter formula. We love that they are not using any artificial sweeteners and instead use a 50:50 ratio of simple to complex carbs. Packing only 70 calories per serving, the drink is more in line with recent thoughts on drinking your electrolytes but eating your calories.
About that Tastefully Nude…
It may sound weird, but the crystal clear Brew is delicious. Made with a very simple, clean taste, Tastefully Nude is something you could drink all day and not get tired of. Other flavors include Lemon Tea, watermelon, Blueberry Pomegranate, lemon-lime and orange. Brew is sold in boxes of 24 stick packs for $32.40, or a 24 serving Canister for $18.00. If you’re headed to the 6th annual Levi’s GranFondo, you’ll have a chance to test out the new Brew formula as GU is the official Hydration Sponsor of the event. Whether you’re tackling the 103 mile Gran route, the 65 mile Medio or even 32 mile Piccolo, rest stations along the way will be armed with gallons of the new Brew.
On the GU and Chomp side, GU has some awesome new flavors including the addictive Caramel Macchiato. If you love Salted Carmel GU, watch out – you’ll be buying this by the truck load. Like a cup of coffee, the gel boasts 40mg of caffeine. Other new flavors include Salted Watermelon GU, and the new Raspberry Chomp with 40mg of caffeine.
