Featured Vendors in the September Box

Phat Fudge

Original: One per box

What is Phat Fudge? It's my personal replacement for those "Gel Packs" minus all the weird stuff. Each ingredient is deliberate, aiming to provide instant and sustained energy, focus, memory, combat inflammation, and acts as a natural thermogenic. Level up your mornings by starting with Phat Fudge right out of the packet or even blending it into your morning cup of coffee to make #unicornfuel. Keep focused and alert during the day for in-between meal boosts. Use it as a pre-work out for when you're pumping that iron. YOU'VE shared with me that you have been taking Phat Fudge on marathon runs, epic bike rides, 30,000 ft in the air, "on set" and the list goes on!

One of the founders of Trailnuggets, Stephen Fitzgerald is a big cyclist and runs a cycling company called Rodeo Adventure Labs. Rodeo Labs is a group of cyclists who like to go out on crazy adventures and test the boundaries. While riding, they realized that they were having a hard time finding food that settled well in their stomachs and was easy to eat in extreme temperatures.
