Question about Sport Jelly Beans...

Hey you guys, A friend asked me a question about the sport jelly beans that I'm hoping you can help me with. She is running her first half marathon (Provo River) this saturday and hasn't used gels...etc. She is wondering about using the sport jelly beans and asked me how much she should take for the race. I have used the jelly beans a little but usually just use gels so I'm not sure how to answer her question and help her use them in the best way possible. Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

The sport Jelly beans, even a couple tend to hurt my stomach. I feel like the chews and moons are better on the tummy. I did a product review on a few products but did not include the jelly beans.

My best advice is not to try anything that she has not used before...it would be a shame to pop 4 jelly beans and have a bad result.

I say test a few products this week just sitting around to see how the stomach reacts. Sports Authority, REI and local running stores will have lots of non-gel items..

I have never used the sport jelly beans, but I have eaten something similar. I really like the Luna Moons (made by Luna Bar). They come in really good flavors and taste great. They are the women's version of the Clif Bloks (which taste okay, but not great). I usually eat a pack within an hour before my run. Hope this helps!

My husband and I eat the sport beans from Jelly Belly and they are great. We've run 6 marathons with them and the flavor is refreshing and we haven't had any side effects. They are pretty mild. We probably have one every mile or two.

It's a light carrying treat to shove in your pocket...:)

I've used the Jelly Belly ones, too. It recommends taking a pack every 45-60 minutes, but I just do what my body is telling me. If I need them i do, otherwise I wait.

With that kind of stuff (usually gels), I usually start eating it about 20 minutes before the race, and then take a few bites every 15 minutes or so once the race starts, so that I probably eat 1 gel every hour.

My friends and I use the Sport Jelly Beans all the time on our long runs. They are great because there's no sticky mess and they're easy to eat. I haven't used them for a marathon yet, but have used them in the last two 1/2 marathons. I usually eat a couple whenever I feel like I need to drink water, about every 3-4 miles.
