Product Review: UnTapped Maple Energy

I have recently discovered a new fuel for my long runs and I am very excited about it.  I had to share!  I bought Untapped on a whim on Amazon when it was suggested to me. (You can get it directly from their website as well: I took it out on my last two long runs.  I shared some with my BRF and she has since bought her own box online as well!   
Why I love it:  The consistency and the taste are huge for me.  It goes down very easy.  My BRF and I took it without water (because we weren't carrying any) and were able to swallow it just fine.  The taste had us sucking out the package to the last drop! 
UnTapped's reasons to love it! 
• Maple syrup is low glycemic. Containing all natural sugars, maple syrup provides prolonged, sustained energy rather than offering a quick burst and subsequent crash like many adulterated sports sweeteners.
• Maple syrup contains Calcium, Riboflavin, Manganese, Zinc, and Potassium. These inherent elements of maple syrup promote energy production, muscle recovery, and help prevent cramping.
• Maple syrup features more than fifty antioxidants. This cocktail of polyphenols have powerful free radical fighting properties. Foods with similar qualities include berries, green tea, red wine, and flaxseeds.
• Maple syrup contains amino acids, which prevent muscle deterioration.
• Maple syrup is water soluble making it easy to digest, quick to absorb, and no more gut-rot from downing sugary energy gels! Plus it’s a cinch to clean up; just rinse with water. Alternative sports gels are like tar to clean up.
All this means that UnTapped maple is an organic, single ingredient, one-stop-shop for your on-the-go needs.
I am sharing this review with you all because I am just really excited about this product.  I was not given any compensation or product for this review.  I bought my own Untapped but just had to share.  Now my BRF and I are on a crusade to get it carried locally. 


  1. I had NO idea that you could use maple syrup as nutrition on a run! I'm very intrigued now, thanks for the review!

  2. I have never heard of this, I will have to check it out!

  3. oooh, this sounds so right up my alley! I love using pure maple syrup for cooking.

  4. This is awesome! So maybe Buddy the Elf knew what he was doing with maple syrup on his spaghetti! I have seen this and was curious, thanks for the review.

  5. I have seen this but have yet to try it. Maple syrup is delicious and would probably be way better than the Gus I am currently using on long runs.

  6. ooooh thanks for sharing! I have some of this in our supplement closet, but I've yet to actually try it...
