Description

Get energized with a Gu Energy Gel.

GU is a convenient, great tasting carbohydrate gel formulated to energize before, sustain during, and aid in recovery after training and competitions. Made with a unique blend of ingredients, GU provides: complex carbohydrates for sustained energy, amino acids to maintain muscle protein, antioxidants and muscle buffers to aid with recovery and GU's patented herbal blend for enhanced energy production. GU helps you feel and perform your best. GU's unique herbal blend combines the perfect fusion of herbs for energy-enhancement (cola-nut), anti-inflammatory (chamomile), and stomach buffering (ginger). GU contains 20mg (equivalent to 1/5 cup of coffee) per serving from cola-nut. All flavors have the same level of caffeine. The caffeine level in GU is not enough to give a "caffeine rush," but is added to help you utilize body fat as an additional fuel source during activity.

Gu Energy Gel comes in ten flavors -- Tri-Berry, Chocolate Outrage, Espresso Love, Jet Blackberry, Lemon Sublime, Mint Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Mandarin Orange, Just Plain, Strawberry Banana, and Vanilla Bean. They come in a box of 24 gel packets.

Powering the runs

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've used many a gel (Clif, Hammer, Honey Stinger, and GU) through the miles of training and these are certainly what works best for me. No GI issues, great energy, tasty flavors, and a great consistency even when it gets cold.

Just a perfect shot of energy to power all of my runs...

PB/Chocolate & Strawberry/Bananers

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

PB/Chocoloate: I can't really taste the peanut butter, but I absolutely love the addition of the caffeine here! I have taken it before a couple climbs and was so energized I ended up doing some interval training on the hill instead of just surviving up it.

Strawberry/Bananers: Tastes like absolute candy. A little too much for me, but still gives me the calories I need to keep going and has been a welcome addition to training.

They seem to work.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These do seem to boost my energy. Sometimes I wonder if it is a placebo effect though. I can't eat a ton of these because the gel texture is kinda strange to me, but overall I like them.

My favorite gels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They do the job, and they taste good. If you're expecting the flavors of a finely aged Gruyere with perfectly ripened figs, you'll be disappointed. If you want to gulp down something that keeps you going without side stitches (if you're prone to them as I am and can't eat solid food on a ride), these are the best. They aren't sickeningly sweet and the candy flavors are above average for this sort of thing. I get the variety pack and like all of the flavors. That "foodie" business has no place in utilitarian calorie consumption for the sake of fast energy absorption.

Great energy boost.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are a great option for energy boost on training runs or a race. I use the plain ones because they don't mess with my stomach.

Mint Chocolate and Peanut Butter for me

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love coffee (and the Espresso Love flavor), but I don't always need tons of caffeine when I run. Enter two low/no-caffeine flavors: Mint Chocolate and Peanut Butter. Gu is definitely an acquired taste, but once you get over that, these are two good tasting Gus. Mint Chocolate is thicker than your typical Gu, almost frosting-thick. While not available here, I'd also recommend seeking out the seasonal Salted Caramel. FAN-TASTIC.

Vanilla and Espresso Love

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Delicious flavors! Love having these around in my pack. Vanilla and Espresso Love are my favorite flavors to have. I certainly stand behind Gu and their energy gel products because I believe they truly work when every piece of energy is needed to complete long treks.
