4.8 out of 5
best chocolate flavor
November 03, 2010
I've tried about every chocolate-flavored energy gel there is, and I've found Gu to be the best-tasting. Since I exercise early in the morning, I have a Gu before running, climbing or yoga so that I don't bonk on an empty stomach. These are my favorite energy gels.

Ride with GU
November 20, 2010
GU is great. I always take GU before a ride and during rides. They fit easily into back pockets. I've tried many flavors: chocolate, orange, tri-berry, banana-strawberry, and blackberry and haven't been disappointed. Provides what you need for (long) rides. Definitely tastes better than similar products.Pros: Great value, tastes great

Not only do these GUs give a quick, but lasting, energy boost but they also taste good. I use them while hiking or before/during long runs. I really feel they help with recovery, too!
Rev up with GU

I have used the other gels and they are OK, but messy, too sweet and so-so energywise. I tried GU (Jet Blackberry) and was impressed - noticable bump in energy in my road riding and it was not runny & messy. Gel is thicker and tasted fine. Will stick like glue to GU. Definately recommend this product.Pros: Ease of use
Thicker gel, great for running.

Some of the gels i've tried are too thin a mix...tend not go down as well. With Gu it tends to need water to take, but doesn't bother my stomach at all. The flavour choices are good, and i recommend the ones with caffeine. Have used it for going on 5 years now, and not let me down yet!Pros: Performance, Great value
