Got mine yesterday in a large boots store, price 99p each, i think they taste very nice, only downside is that they are a bugger to open, I cant seem to open them with my fingers and having to use teeth, which i found hard today while doing a hard run.

I will continue to use them though.

I have been looking in Boots stores.

Which one did you get them from?

Boots in L'pool and Peterborough have them -From recent experience you need to start eating them fairly early on in a long run and keep topped up. I've actually found them one of the easiest gels to open, even with gloves on. They are also fairly palatable compared to some.

I use Squezzy as you can fit 2 in the key pocket of your shorts or tracksters. The top rips of easy with your teeth. Never had a problem with digestion and they all taste as bad as each other. Buy a box of 10 from a running shop and they work out at 79p each.

I am no expert but it works for me usualy have the first one at about 10 k and the next one half way between there and the end of the run.
