So good!

Strawberry banana is my favorite so far! I love that this one doesn’t have caffeine but still keeps me super energized :)

Surprisingly yummy

I haven’t had gels in a very long time, but realized I needed a pick me up while running marathons. I was looking for a vegan gel and came across these. I’m so happy I tried them! Super yummy and gave me the energy I needed at miles 13 and 20! Great product, will definitely purchase again.

TRI-BERRY TASTY

Tried the TRI-BERRY flavor, after other flavors that I like, this was a tasty treat. I like sweets. I have experimented with the energy gels' using', 'not using', 'after30 minutes' changing timing, on a controlled 33 mile route I pedal for workouts, consistent temperature, water intake and time of day; I have found that when I delay or skip the gels, I can tell the difference in energy/firepower. Ingesting a gel later is better than not, as I sense a pick up 5-6 miles down the route. Cold water, small recovery segments and GU gels have made a big difference in performance.

I have type 1 diabetes. These worked very well in keeping my blood glucose from dropping too low or going too high while on a bike ride. I took three packets over the course of the ride, and this was the best BG control I've had. I very much appreciate finding something that worked so well. They also taste good!

Love ‘em!

I am a very active type one diabetic and have always used glucose tabs or gels for lows (among other things). I have found that they treat the low but I feel worse after because my blood sugars spike then I crash back down. I started using Gu when I was going through the fire academy this winter, what a game changer! I would take one before a training evolution and not worry about my numbers dropping. In fact, my numbers stay almost perfectly straight, I have learned not to enter the carbs into my pump and it balances out. Now I keep 6-8 Gu in my turnout gear and just got back from 2 calls, my numbers were 135 when I got back to the station and I felt refreshed and ready to go back out! The electrolytes are an added bonus. At first I almost gagged when I tried it, but now I’m used to it and am a die hard fan! Raspberry lemonade is awesome and blackberry is too, but 40mg of caffeine is a bit too much. Salted watermelon is my go to.

Great for distance

Just finish a solo cycle tour > 800 miles. GU, especially with caffeine, really helped to assuage hunger and gave me the energy I needed. Especially great in the heat. Much less muscle cramps at night.
