Pocket Fuel
$4 per three-ounce pouch, $25 per 24-ounce refill jug

Pocket Fuel’s innovative all-natural Almond Butter concoctions pack upwards of 450 calories per pouch, making them an excellent choice for long bouts in the mountains when you need calories to stretch.

Packed with B vitamins, minerals and electrolytes including potassium, manganese, calcium, iron, magnesium, zinc, selenium and sodium, each pouch provides ample fuel—protein with simple and complex carbohydrates—for multi-hour trail runs. The Chia Goji and Honey and the Crunchy Banana and Blueberry were the easiest flavors to suck down on the go. But, like all nut butters, the oils tend to separate so massage the pack before opening.

For a pick-me-up mid-run (or at the office), take a couple swallows of Chocolate Espresso, which packs a whopping 200 milligrams of caffeine per serving!

As a nod to the environment, the pouches are reusable but are hard to clean. The ingredients are also gluten free, and all flavors are vegan, with the exception of the Chia Goji and Honey.
