This is the best product I have tried. Works great to get my energy levels up and the boost I need to get through my long runs. Tons of energy yet it is light on my stomach. I had a lot of issues with thick gels and gu not sitting well in my stomach.
Island Boost Works Great!
I have tried a lot of different athletic energy consumables and Island Boost by far is the best. Clif Bloks and Gu gave me an acidy tummy, and other products I tried had weird after tastes or didn't go down very well.
I tried Island Boost on a 20 mile bike ride, had one pack at about the 1/2 way mark and a second at the 3/4 way mark. The first thing I noticed was the mouth feel of the product, it wasn't dense and sticky, it was very liquid and almost like soft water the way it felt in my mouth and then went down. The taste was great and while there was a little bit of an aftertaste it certainly wasn't a bad one! I definitely felt the difference in my energy -- I felt like I was much earlier in the ride (more/fresher energy).
The only detractors for me as a cyclist was the low calorie count per pouch and the packaging was a little finicky (I had to stop instead of just having it on the go). That said though, I reached out to the folks at Island Boost and they said they're working on a cyclist-friendly set up so I'm very excited to hear about that.
Regardless of those small hurdles, it's absolutely worth it to me to be putting natural ingredients into my body and to feel good throughout my ride so I bought a 20 pack and have been enjoying them while I've been out on the bike.
I highly recommend this to anyone who exercises and needs to manage calories during their workout.

Island Boost--fuel for long runs
I originally purchased this product at a Rock and Roll Marathon expo. As w/any gel/fuel/hydration I think it's always worth it to try something new that may work better than what I'm currently using. I was pleasantly surprised by the quick reaction time of this product. Instead of gel form, it's more of a thicker liquid so it hits your system faster and it's a noticable aid in assisting with long distances. It's labeled as all natural and as a person that watches all of my sugar intake, that's a benefit. I've talked with individuals from the company and can honestly say they are some of the nicest folks to deal with. Their customer service and response time is wonderful. I also scored an awesome price through Road Runner sports w/their VIP membership. Win/Win all the way around.
No nausea, vomiting or diarrhea
I use this product on long training runs and in races. It hits the bloodstream faster, I think because it's a liquid and the glucose goes into the system faster. You feel this hit you in under 10 minutes. I'm ultra sensitive and this product has been one of only a few that do not make me nauseous or experience worse effects gastrointestinally. The taste is sweet, but you drink it quickly. TIP: to open without it dribbling, hold at the top and shake it, this forces liquid to the bottom so you can open and drink it without any dribbles.
Wow! Powered me to my Marathon PR!!!
I discovered Island Boost at the Rock and Roll Vegas Marathon Expo and liked it so much I used it for my race the next day. Gu is so hard to get down and always feels bad in my stomach so i would chronically under fuel and bonk. Island Boost is delicious, goes down easy, but gives you that endurance energy you need. I PR'd at RnR Vegas and hit my fueling plan at Oceanside 70.3 because of Island Boost. I swear by it and have shared samples with all my friends. I love that it is all natural. I think that is why it fuels me so well. Can't wait to taste their next flavors.

I usually carry chews on my long runs but have gotten pretty sick of them over the years. I have never tried gels (the face people make when choking them down has kept me from even venturing there). I decided to try this after reading all the stellar reviews, and it looked like a better alternative to giving into the dreaded gel.
This is a great product. It goes down easy and tastes delicious. It provides quick energy when I need it. Since it's liquid, I easily stuffed 4 into my waist pouch and still had room for a pack of chews and some electrolyte pills for my 20 mile run. If RRS stocked the other flavors, I would love to try them.

Great for sensitive stomachs
I cannot use most gels or chews as I have a very sensitive stomach. But Island Boost does not give me any problems. It is water based so it is thin (think liquid) which means you don't have to drink a lot of water with it but can make it easy to spill when using on the run. Plus the packaging is larger than other gels. To solve that, for my last 2 marathons I emptied the packets into one of the water bottles on my belt with enough water to fill the bottle up. Worked great. Didn't have to carry any packets with me or worry about spilling. Tastes sweeter than I like but doesn't upset the stomach. Great product!
Incredible for workouts & afternoon
I use the product during my long runs, I take it about every 4 miles. I'm from Peru so I LOVE the taste of passion fruit. I'm not crazy about the current package design, but since the product doesn't make me sick (I have a very sensitive stomach) I forgive them the packet shape. I keep some frozen for an afternoon lift without getting a sugar high or crash. Love this stuff.

Great Energy Boost & Taste
Like others have said in this section, I use Island Boost for longer and tougher runs when I need a pick me up. Recently, I have found a new use for IB, tried it in my advance yoga class, it gave me nice, mellow boost to keep me going. I haven't seen any energy products targeting yoga users, but this is certainly a product that works well in the yoga studio too.
This product works great. It works fast with no side effects. I love the fact that it is a liquid you can drink instead of gel that is hard to choke down during a long hot run. The taste is not good but honestly it isn't bad enough for me not to use. Overall unbeatable product.
I like the non-gel consistency, it's basically a 50 calorie liquid supplement. It gives me enough energy but I don't need water to help me absorb it.
Gave a Con on the package top, which can cut your mouth while using it. Just be careful. I've heard they are changing this type of top soon.
Easy on the Stomach!
This is an incredible product. I use it primarily on long runs and bike rides. It provides just the right amount of energy and boost without all the side effects of other products on the market.
Best Energizer Product on the Shelf!!!
You will not find anything like this on the shelf! It is 100% all natural and it is really tasty! I don't get any nausea nor stomach cramps ever! It is also great to drink one down after a long run to avoid the leg cramps. Awesome product!
