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.

  • Complex carbohydrates for virtually instantaneous energy
  • Includes amino acids and other recovery aids
  • Easy to ingest during an event or race

Energy on command.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

From my understanding when you are training or running a distance race you should consume at least 140 calories for every hour you are running with simple carbohydrates and electrolytes so brain and body function say optimal. When I train for half marathons I would eat w/water before I started and at a 1-hour make give or take my feeling. These saved my life with I ran my Half I ran the first half way too fast ran, hit a wall about 3 miles to the finish. I used one of these to give me the energy to get over the wall. In my opinion, the chocolate and caramel taste the best.

Energy on command.

salted caramel is perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

of course, it works like all gu gels work. but the taste? best tasting energy product out there. i'd put it on ice cream if, you know, that was allowed. i thought vanilla bean was the greatest, but the salted caramel rules all gel products. i do wish gu would put a little tether on the tops, though - too easy to tear the top completely off while riding which makes it tougher to hold onto.

Good Gels

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The watermelon flavor is fantastic! These work as intended and add energy to my rides and hikes.


  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I use the blackberry every couple of hours mixed in with the other flavors, or when needed for the extra boost of caffeine. They do the trick. Might be to sweet to use for an entire long run though.

Love Rootbeer

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Best flavor of all time. I just wish it had caffeine. So easy to digest.

Sold me expired product

    Yes they were at a good price, but before I bought the GU I called and was assured that it was not about to expire. It cost me time and money to return a product that I would never have bought if I had known. NOT IMPRESSED.

    Endurance Essentials

      There's a case of these in the trunk of my car for a reason. Pre, during, and post workout these Gu packets perform exactly as advertised. They provide you with some powerful amino acids to help you keep going longer. They come in a bunch of great flavors. No complaints, just make sure to drink a lot of water with these.

      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.
