Sharkies Product Review & Giveaway

A couple of years ago, I was browsing the aisles of Target and came across some new sports chews.  They were called Sharkies and marketed towards active children.  Sharkies (HERE) recently sent the kids and I some samples of all of their latest products ... and some gear, too.  Check it out.


Sharkies claims that they are clean fuel for active lifestyles.  They are USDA Certified Organic; No High Fructose Corn Syrup; No artificial dyes or flavors; No Trans Fats; Free of Wheat, Gluten & Nuts
These are perfect to stick in your kids backpack for an after school snack or in their gym bag for track, soccer, softball or any other extracurricular activity.  They are portable and easily storable.


You can check out their entire line of products for active kids (HERE)

SHARKIES ORGANIC FRUIT CHEWS were a favorite by my kids.  They preferred the berry flavors over the tropical flavors.  My kids tend to be particular about the consistency of fruit chews and fruit snacks and they were just fine with these.  They ate them at track and for after school snacks.  They also worked great to pop in my purse for our weekend adventures. 


SHARKIES OMEGA 3 SMART TWISTS are something unique.  The consistency was a little different than what the kids are use to and they didn't like them as much as the chews.  Little Diva liked them more than the Little Dude.  They thought they were "too chewy".  I, on the other hand, loved them!  I loved the flavor, the texture and the shape.  Kind of like a "healthy licorice".  I admit that I've been snacking on them.





I personally was able to try the line of products for active adults (HERE).  Sharkies delivers naturally occurring carbohydrates and electrolytes, providing clean fuel for activities like running, soccer, biking, hiking or snowboarding. Sharkies doesn't contain anything artificial such as flavors, dyes or synthetic ingredients.

The Original Organic Sports Chew is available in four yummy flavors:  Citrus Squeeze, Fruit Splash, Berry Blast, Watermelon Scream.  I really loved Watermelon Scream (YUM!), closely followed by the Citrus Squeeze flavor.  These were great for fueling before a workout, as well as during a workout (though I found them difficult to transport en route).  They didn't stick to my teeth and were easy to chew, unlike some other brands I've tried.
These retail for under $18 for a box of 12.  A pretty sweet deal for any endurance athlete.

  14. I LOVE that they have sports chews for kids. I have a son who has sugar issues when he gets hot and really needs to have some quick fuel when exercising on a hot day, and I would love to give him product formulated for kids as opposed to the adult versions I use.
