ANDOVER, Mass., April 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today marks the start of a fruitful relationship in the sports and fitness industry: the world's leading global obstacle race series, Reebok Spartan, has teamed up with SNAP Infusion, the creators of SUPERCANDY, and has dubbed the brand as the official SUPERCANDY of the race series in 2013. The partnership aims to unite both brands in their missions of giving consumers the tools they need to compete at their very best and most importantly, have some fun along the way.
"The Spartan brand is a natural fit for our functional and delicious SUPERCANDY and we couldn't be more excited to join forces with them in 2013," said Eric Stoll, president, SNAP Infusion. "The Spartan athlete works hard to condition for this race and we're proud to now be able to deliver flavor to their functional snack that helps fuel them along the way. Spartans should enjoy the fruits of their commitment, from the fuel they consume to their own personal accomplishments on race day."
At the 2013 U.S. Reebok Spartan Race events, SNAP Infusion will set up aid stations on course providing SUPERCANDY to participants, not only to get them through the race, but to help them truly compete at their very best.
SUPERCANDY is a healthy snack available in five product types including: Mel, Gummy, Bean, Tart and Gum. Each type contains functional benefits that will help take every Spartan contender to the next level:
Delivers an excellent source of B Vitamins, which naturally convert carbs into energy to give you that extra push late in the course
Provides more antioxidants than a cup of fresh blueberries - antioxidants are a key component in muscle recovery
Contains more electrolytes than the leading sports drinks to keep you hydrated and balanced in this summer's heat
Bursts with delicious flavors and fun to enhance any Spartan's experience
Offers a natural ingredient profile for today's health conscious contenders
"We are excited to partner with SNAP Infusion for the 2013 Reebok Spartan Race series. Their SUPERCANDY is delicious and will provide a much-needed source of energy and electrolytes out on our challenging racecourses. The SNAP Infusion aid stations will be a welcome sight on the course for our athletes and will help them get to the finish line!" Joe De Sena, Spartan Race CEO and founder.
SNAP Infusion will kick off its partnership with Spartan at this weekend's race at Citi-Field in Queens on Saturday, April 13, fueling participants with flavorful SUPERCANDY along the way.
