When I first bought these i wasnt 100% sure what to expect. Maybe a liquid, maybe some sort of gel, but what you actually get is some weird apple-sauce textured fruit mash. The texture was offputting at first, but that was due to expecting something completely different. Once you know what these will be like... theyre actually really good. Its like a mixed fruit apple sauce that delivers tons of energy. I take one of these on the drive to the mountains and feel it working within 30 or so minutes. Drop the redbull and heavily caffeinated energy drinks, have some fruit stuff instead.
