Gel that gives you a kick in the pants.

Sure, the energy part gives you a kick, but when you first try the Honey Stinger gel (gold flavor) for the first time, if you've been raised on the typical gels, this stuff is surprising. Its a little thicker than others I've used such as Gu an PowerGel, but its flavor is a welcome relief. The Gold flavor tastes just like pure honey.
