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