Don't Take Our Word For It

The folks here at Skratch Labs believe in our products 100%.  But we also admit that it is possible we are just a tiny bit biased when it comes to our own feelings.  So how can you trust us when we tell you that our drink mix is, without a doubt, the best we've ever tried?  Don't.

Below is a listing of unsolicited reviews.  And this isn't just one man or woman's opinion either.  Check out feedback from a wide variety of sources.  Everyone from renowned publication Bicycling Magazine to professional triathlete Kristin Peterson, to the famous "Snake" from Drunk Cyclist (the guy is a ten time Leadville finisher, with multiple top tens, so he might know a thing or two about long hours in the saddle.) 

If you know of any other reviews of our Skratch Labs Drink Mix (formerly Secret Drink Mix),  let us know and we'll be happy to post links, good or bad.  We haven't seen a bad one yet, but feel free to look. 

You didn't think we were making all that stuff up, did you?
