NUUN Flavor Review and GIVEAWAY

You might remember me giving my love and admiration for NUUN drink enhancers a few weeks back in this post where I griped that I hadn't yet found a flavor that I thought was delicious yet.  Well, the awesome folks at NUUN graciously sent me 2 new YUMMY flavors to try and let me just tell you that I am smitten!  Yes, I've mentioned before that I love the idea of water enhancement tablets for workouts, hot days and general well being but now I love the way they taste too.  I am generally a water or coffee gal (oh and wine).  I don't do sodas of any kind, drink grapefruit juice before a long run (for the potassium) and will occasionally spruce up a lemonade with some carbonated water and basil.  So flavored drinks are unusual for my palate.  That said, I have found that the gentle taste of NUUN's All Day Grapefruit Orange to be delicious!  This flavor has a nice zip to it and includes vitamins and minerals really upping the value of water! I even give this to my kiddos to slurp down when they are asking for juice.
I also really enjoyed their Active Hydration Watermelon flavor.  This is the flavor I use during long sweaty workouts.  It tastes yummy and replaces some of the nutrients and electrolytes lost when I sweat.  The taste is mild and not sticky sweet so it  doesn't make my stomach to flip flops like so many sports drinks do.  It is also super convenient.  I keep a tube in my gym bag and one in my car  so I can  just plop a tab into my water bottle & presto!  I have to admit that the tubes that these tabs come in are brilliant.  I had a water bottle in my gym bag that leaked a bit and thank goodness, the NUUN tubes kept all my precious tablets dry and happy!  They are also easy to open, unlike the single serve bags of powdered Powerade that I tried to use but could never actually open without a pair of scissors (which I do NOT carry in my gym bag!).  OK you get the picture....NUUN is pretty perfect.
