The Thursday after we got back from Las Vegas, our local tri shop, KompetitiveEdge, held a Skratch Labs night. Founder Allen Lim came to talk (he is HYSTERICAL) and he and another guy from Skratch, Jon, made some rice cakes for us to try.
Jon on the left, Lim on the right.
It was a very informative night, both with Lim's talk and with the subsequent Q&A. We learned how Skratch got started, the whole point of real food, Lim's experiences working on the pro cycling circuit, how Skratch compares to say, Osmo, and much, much more.
More importantly, rice cakes were made! Both a sweet (chocolate chip and blackberry) and a savory (peanut butter and bacon).
The white are sweet, the brown are savory.
They were tasty and I am willing to try them training if I fiddle with the insides a bit.
The night just solidified why I love Skratch and taught me that if Lim is ever talking, I need to go, because he is AWESOME.
