Primary race fuel

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've tried about every jell out there. EFS pretty very sweet, almost disgustingly so, but it just keeps going down with giving me any bad reactions. Following a shot of this with a good swig of water helps with the sweetness. I was recently out for 40 hours, and this stuff was still palletable. In most outings of 12-24 hours I can make this my only fuel intake without bonking. It has never given me an upset stomach (although I can't wait to brush my teeth when I am done!). It's is more liquid than most jells and goes down easy. It also has a lot of electrolytes. Great product for any distance, in my opinion.
