- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This is a great product for more intense exercises/races. I down a gel nearly every time I work out, but for longer and more intense workouts it is obvious to tell how much more effective these shots are over a regular gel.
Pack one of these babies and you wont need to bring a bar or a sandwich since one shot has 400cals. After an intense run/ride, your legs will be thanking you the next day.
The downside that I have found with these is that since I use it on long runs to replace solid food, my stomach seems to not like it so much a few hours afterward.
I much prefer the kona mocha flavor over the wild berry. Too bad it isnt currently available here.
These dont have very many gelling agents so they are absorbed quickly and can also be watered down easily into water bottles or camelbaks and they still taste good.
