who wants to be a guinea pig for GU?

i crack up every time i look at this picture
i need one brave person to step up to the plate and test out a new liquid rocket fuel, made by GU Energy Labs. it is not yet available to the public, not even to me. can ya help a girl out here? the deal presented to me was to pick my most loyal reader of the year. WHAAAAT? well, i have no idea how to do that since i consider many of you to be loyal reader's of the year and if i could present each one of you with a tub of this GU Roctane Ultra Endurance, I would in a hot second, however, there are only 29 tubs of this stuff in existence.  
sadly, i have not had the opportunity (yet) to get my hands on this drink mix and this opportunity is only for you, my loyal, lovely friends out in blogville. from what i've read, it sounds very promising and sounds yummy. here is the scientific mumbo-jumbo about GU's new drink:

Light tasting, carbohydrate-dense Roctane Ultra Endurance Energy Drink provides athletes easily available energy with the superior rehydration combination of sodium and potassium. Taurine, Caffeine, and the proven Roctane Amino Acid Blend provide extra energy, reduce muscle damage and maintain mental focus, while Beta-Alanine augments muscle buffering capacity and performance to help athletes meet their goals. In short, Roctane Drink is essential for any athlete striving to sustain peak performance through their endurance pursuits.

did you get all that? no? basically, what it means is, this stuff could possibly be a serious dose of kick ass that easily mixes in water.

the beautiful thing about GU products is that IT IS tested by super humans, like you, the beautiful people who read my blog (not tested on animals, not even on guinea pigs) and that is why they came to me, to seek out the perfect candidate.


the lucky winner will also receive this:

a GU sample pack full of goodies
since i think the task of naming a reader of the year, is next to impossible, i will do a giveaway in a random like fashion.
as Ben Bailey from Cash Cab would say, "You in?"

a few favors to ask of those who'd like to participate:

1- Follow my blog and let me know that you do. If you are a new follower (as in, you just started following for this giveaway then you get 1 entry).  If you have already been following my blog, and I do know who you peeps are, then you automatically get 2 entrie's.

2 - Tweet about this giveaway for another entry.

3 - Post the giveaway on your Facebook page for an additional entry.

4 - Post the giveaway on your blog if you have one, for 1 more entry.

5 - Promise me that if you win, and once you've had a chance to test out the drink mix, that you'll write an honest review of it on your blog and if you don't have a blog, then you can be a guest writer on mine. Easy, right? Pinky promise me this and you get one more entry.

Let me know each one that you do so that i can easily tally up your entries, got it?

the fine print:
~giveaway is only for residents of the US and Canada
~i'm not getting paid to do this
~contest ends at 12:00am EST on Wednesday, December 28th, 2011.
~i will put all the entries into a hat or box and have someone other than myself, pick the name out.

~the winner has 48 hours to contact me via email with their contact info, otherwise a new winner will be chosen.

  1. WOW - Reader of the Year such a lot of responsibility with that title. I would love to be a guinea pig although we did have one as a child and it met an untimely death. Hopefully I would have better luck this time around :) following, of course!

  4. Awesome! I'm actually passing on being a guinea pig due to previous bad experiences with the Gu Brew. Maybe the Roctane is different, but I don't want to take my chances. I think Jon needs to win though. Who else does midnight videos of himself double shooting peanut butter and chocolate Gu after drinking too much scotch?? haha

  8. Who doesn't want to be a guinea pig? If I win this, I'll definitely post a review on my blog. I've been doing a lot of nutrition testing lately so this would be a fun test.
