We all know Cannondale’s Ted King as the Maple Syrup King. Well, he’s bestowing gifts on his subjects by joining forces with Vermont’s Slopeside Syrup to bring Untapped, sappy goodness to athletes everywhere. This high-carb boost in a handy one-shot gel pack has just one ingredient: 100% organic Vermont maple syrup, which itself is chock full of vitamins and minerals, amino acids and antioxidants. Sounds perfect.
“How do I get nature’s goodness in a gel pack?” I hear you cry. Well, I’ll tell you! This is an IndieGoGo campaign to get them going so contribute anything from US$25 (for a pre-order of 10 packs) to US$5000 (which gets you 7000 packs plus all kinds of Slopeside goodies, including a SugarShack tour and ride with Ted King). Campaign lasts until 9 Sept with deliveries in October. The project has been pledged over 60% of the total costs but there’s still lots of contribution levels to choose from.
Go on, get sappy!
