I've tried about every jell out there. Yeah, this is pretty sweet stuff, so I always follow a shot of this with a good swig of water. I recently did a race that took me 40 hours, and this stuff was still palletable. In most races of 12-24 hours I can make this my only fuel intake without bonking. It has never given me an upset stomach (although I can't wait to brush my teeth when I am done!). It's is more liquid than most jells and goes down easy. It also has a lot of electrolytes. Great product for any distance, in my opinion.
