Last week I got an exciting invitation to Nuun Hydration Headquarters in Seattle, WA. For my first task as a Nuunbassador, I participated in a blind taste test of two different versions of four existing Nuun flavors. Nuun is working on improving some of their flavors, so I tasted the current version and the new version and gave my thoughts on which version of the flavors I liked best.
I made the trek up to Hydration Headquarters with Molly, a fellow Tacoma runner, blogger and 2015 Nuun Team Member. We had such a blast getting to know each other a little better and talking blog talk that the hour drive each way seemed to fly by! Totally random side note, but apparently Tacoma runners dress alike when going to a Nuun taste test! As we stood up to leave, I realized that both Molly and I were wearing black puffer vests, running tights and black boots! So funny!
The flavors we tried in the taste test included Lemon Lime, Strawberry Lemonade, Tri Berry and Citrus Fruit. Since this was a blind taste test, I’m not sure which version of the flavors was the new one, but after some deductive reasoning, I think I figured it out! If I’m guessing correctly, the new formulation is going to be a little sweeter and smoother, which I’m really excited about! You can thank me when the new and improved flavors hit the shelves later this year! 😉
As a thank you for our participation, we got a swag bag full of fun Nuun product to try. I was excited to get my very first Nuun water bottle and have some new flavors to try out! I actually discovered a new favorite flavor, GRAPE, which is shocking because I normally don’t enjoy grape flavored drinks.
