Kona Kase Review

As I’ve mentioned on more than one occasion, I’ve been on the hunt for the fueling options that will work best for me.  So when I was contacted by the guys at Kona Kase I was definitely intrigued.

What is Kona Kase?
Kona Kase is a subscription service delivering a collection of endurance nutrition samples to your doorstep every month. (Each Kase is $15 and shipping is free.)

Kona Kase Goodies!

I received the September Kase which included 10 products: Hammer Heed, Honey Stringer Waffle, Cliff Bar, Cliff Shot Bloks, GU, PR Bar, Cytomax, Picky Bars and Urgent Rx Headache Relief.

I appreciated that the day my package arrived that I received an email from Taylor at Kona Kase saying that he saw that my Kase had been delivered and was interested in my feedback.

 So I’ll tell you what I told him:

  • Loved the collection of products, (it’s a good mix of products I was familiar with and others that either I wasn’t familiar or had never tried).
  • It would be very helpful if some product information was included in the Kona Kase to help educate recipients about the products. 
  • Also, along with the product information, recommendations for how best to use the products (pre-workout, during a workout and recovery) would be helpful.

Taylor told me that starting with the October shipment that they are including educational inserts and are labeling the products pre/during/post-workout. And, soon recipients can go back to the Kona Kase site and order their favorite products from the Kases.

Overall, I really like this concept behind Kona Kase! There are so many products on the market, I think this is a great way to see what’s out there and to sample until you find the ones that work best for you! (Hint to my family – a subscription would make a great Christmas gift 🙂 )

I received a Kona Kase for the purposes of a review. As always, the opinions expressed here are solely my own.

  1. I really like the Kona Kase. I feel like between Allan and I we would use most all of these products. I may have to look into ordering it. Thanks for the review Michelle!

  2. DEFINITELY need information about all those products, there are way too many in there for the basic newbie to know what to do. They might think it’s all for one meal at lunch or something :). Glad they are fixing that. What a great concept and I’m glad you got to be a guinea pig – how cool!

  3. Well, since I’m about to start training for my 1st half marathon ever (Gulp) I’ll be needing to start fueling while running I guess. Gasp! :)I’ve never had to do that on my 3 mile runs! 🙂

  4. The contents on that one look great!

  5. Very interesting. These monthly subscription things are popping up all over the place. I love the idea of getting to try out new products. My concern with so many different fueling options is that sometimes you need to get used to new fuel, so you’d need more than just a little sample.

    Looking forward to reading about how each item works out.

  6. Never heard about that box but LOVE the concept, especially if you get new and different products each month! And yes, perfect xmas gift for my running friends. Need to check it out!

  7. Love the idea!! Great review…..I’m always looking for new things to fuel with.
