Description

Chomp these little chews for a tasty energy boost.

GU Chomps. It’s the GU that you chew. While we got along fine before chewy energy supplements, we're glad that we now have a choice. Chomps are easy to store in your back pocket once opened. It's not necessary to eat them all at once. The old mantra "a little bit at a time over a long time" seems to be the method. In fact, GU recommends eating 4 every 45. That's four Chomps every 45 minutes. A serving is 90 calories. There are two servings per bag, so a bag of GU Chomps tucked into a jersey pocket should get you through a 35 mile ride assuming you weren't hungry when you started out.

Chomps are the only energy chew that contains amino acids, which help you maintain focus and aid in recovery both during and after the workout. Like GU gel, Chomps incorporate both simple and complex carbs for instant and prolonged fuel delivery. That's the key to maintaining a steady blood glucose state and to avoid the dreaded bonk. You'll also get 100% of your daily needs of vitamins C & E, two antioxidants that help fight free radicals in order to keep your cells healthy when you put your body under the stress of high workloads. GU Chomps are formulated with 55mg of sodium and 40mg of potassium to maintain the water balance in your cells. One nice effect we've noticed with Chomps is that they are pretty chewy and force us to drink plenty of water to get them washed down quickly and get back on the hammer. The Strawberry and Cranberry Apple flavors each have 20mg of caffeine per serving to help give you a little late-race kick.

GU Chomps are available in four flavors -- Blueberry Pomegranate, Cranberry Apple Cherry, Orange, Peach Tea, Strawberry, and Watermelon. Each 60 gram package contains two servings (eight pieces). Comes in a box of 16 packages.

These are now my favorite!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I will never go back to gels! I love all the flavors. They really keep the energy level up.

Peach Tea!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I buy these in the Peach Tea flavor. Gu chomps are harder to chew than similar products out there (Clif Shot Bloks, Honeystingers), and I dislike that about them, but the peach tea flavor is pretty amazing. Orange is a decent flavor, too, not too sweet. They get especially hard to chew in the cold.

Great taste!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like these a lot! My only issue is that they are a bit pricey if you eat them regularly on your rides. But I'm not going to knock them down a star for that--all of these specialized nutrition things are expensive.

Orange is my fav!

Blueberry Pomegranate

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The best flavor to get is blueberry pomegranate! Perfect while on the trail or to have on the go. Always in my pack.

So tasty.

So tasty

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These have been great I will never go back to gels. Great calories of sustained energy. I tried the Watermelon it had a nice bitter element to go along with the sweetness.

Great!

These are very good on the go and they provide a solid amount of energy when you are tired and dont have much time

Chomps

A good alternative to Gels. Chomps taste really good. Not too sweet and candy-like. Can be a little tough to chew when really cold but they don't seem to freeze. I wish the package had a little better opening to rip open. I like the Cliff Blok package but prefer GU taste.

Life savers!

I went on a mission trip to a place with no clean drinking water. On the last day of our trip, i ended up with no water bottles and got severely dehydrated. I was passing out and really not doing well. Another woman on the trip came to my aid and slipped me a few of the orange Gu Chomps and they really saved me! The quick burst of electrolytes gave me enough energy to make it to some water and get out of the heat. Those Gu Chomps are incredible!

Like Gummy Bears, but with nutritional value

Energy chews like these have pretty much replaced bars for me. They taste good and are easy to snack on as you go. One downside is that they can leave you feeling full temporarily - a feeling you don't get with energy gels.

Love these chomp chews

I love these chomps, they taste good and give me more energy when I need it. I use them mainly for long mountain bike rides. Orange and Peach Tea are my favorites

Haha

These will provide energy for about as long as they stick in your teeth.... i.e. for hours. Pretty hard to eat, but efective none the less. I prefer the gels though.

Responded on

Though, they do taste better than the gels, in my opinion.

Good energy but packaging could use some work

The Chomps themselves work well from a sports nutrition perspective, but unfortunately the packaging doesn't make these easy to eat.

The sachet isn't as easy to use as the Clif ShotBloks (which let you squeeze out a Blok). Your fingers tend to get sticky trying to pick out a GU Chomp. Not great on the MTB (where full finger gloves and sticky Chomps don't mix), but you could live with them on the road if you're prepared for sticky fingers!

Quick and Easy Energy

I bought these for my husband when he ran the Las Vegas Ragnar and he loved them. They are easy to chew while running and provide great energy. He loved the watermelon flavor.

Great for hikes, not for runs

Bought a variety Gu box and finally tried the chomps. Overall, great for hikes.
pros
- replenishes electrolytes and provides sugar during hikes
- each bag contains several pieces, so it's convenient if you want to share

cons
- too sweet and sticky on your fingers and mouth. be prepared to swish water in your mouth to remove from your teeth and a bit for your fingers too.
- bit of a hassle for distance running because they're sticky (getting out of the bag, get between teeth, and remain on fingers) - i prefer gu gels for runs instead

Chomps do what they're suppose to do and provide energy, but may be an inconvenience because of the chew.

works well

I'm not super athletic, so I can't speak for this thing in marathons. But I did take them hiking w/ me. They work like a charm. I can be dead tired and not able to take another step, pop one or two, chew, add water, and off I go again. My personal favorite is the blueberry pomegranate. Also I've found that if I open a pack and come back to it tomorrow (or even a few days after), it's still good, just the outside dries slightly, making it less chewy.

Great for on the go fueling

These can be a tad too chewy and stick in your teeth pretty good, but none of the alternatives are great so these get used in my house quite a bit. I even found shoving a bunch in my cheek for long hikes works great to slowly warm and chew them. I've only tried the blueberry-pomegranate, which was pretty good, but I can't speak for the rest of the flavors.

Chew on this

The taste is good, almost candylike, but as other reviewers have said, they are a bit too chewy. I'd choose a bar over chews because bars give you a 'full' feeling. Maybe the chews are good for a kind of dessert.

Yummmm...

I love these chomps because they taste good and give me more energy when I need it. I recently hiked to the top of Frary's Peak on Antelope Island (in Utah) and I had a few packs of these and 2 liters of water in my bag. I was surprised at how much energy I still had when I reached the summit after eating only 2 packs. I fully recommend these! They might taste a little TOO good though...
