Sports Beans

 

Jelly Belly created Sports Beans for athletes everywhere. Sports Beans are jellybeans that give athletes a quick boost of energy. The four main flavors are: Berry, Fruit Punch, Orange, and Lemon Lime. There is an assorted flavor pack that includes all four flavors. Along with these four basic flavors, there are two Extreme flavors: Cherry and Watermelon.

Sports Beans have carbohydrates, electrolytes, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B3, and vitamin C. The carbs help keep your body running while exercising. Electrolytes help maintain fluid balance in your body which is important because it will allow the kidneys to function properly. The Vitamin B’s will help burn carbohydrates and fat. Vitamin C is going to help protect your muscles from lactic acid build up. The Extreme Sports Beans have all of these great benefits with the addition of caffeine for even more energy.

When asked if sports beans made a difference in her performance, Lauren Oostman(10) answered, “They definitely worked for me! They helped me swim better at meets when I would use them.” Oostman swims for the Lady Iron and also swims for Waves year-round.

Sometimes athletes forget to eat before or during games, meets, and any other physical activity. These beans act as a quick snack and an energy boost. So if you aren’t motivated and are feeling rather hungry, make sure you try Sports Beans.

About the Contributor
Alexandra Marable, Editor in Chief
Alexandra Marable is a senior at Normal Community High School. She has been involved with the paper for two years now. Last year, she was the Associate Editor for the paper as well as the Desk Editor for Sports. This year, she is the Editor in Chief of the Inkspot. Alexandra is also a member of the female a capella group, Cloud 9. Random Fact A random fact about myself is that I have had two surgeries on my right shoulder. They were both for the same injury. In between those surgeries, I had a labrum tear. This ongoing injury has caused me to quit swimming and turn my focus to my music and writing. Slogan to Live By A slogan that I live by is, “ You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get,” which is said by Michael Phelps. I believe that any dream can come true, you just have to work on it and you can achieve it. Biggest Pet Peeve My biggest pet peeve is when teachers walk around during tests. It tends to make my anxiety go up and then I don't focus on the test and focus on the teacher walking around instead. I wish they could just trust that students wouldn't cheat.
