TURNED THE LEGS FROM JELLY TO ENERGY

easy packaged for storing while running. easy to open on the run
tastes ok but could always be better
did what it's supposed to do, certainly a big factor in helping me run my half marathon and still being energetic at the finish.

A SMALL, TASTY BOOST.

They're small, taste good and really give you an energy surge. These gels are much smaller than others on the market (with the same calories)which makes a difference when planning for a marathon.
Althought High5 gels are less widely available than other brands, their internet deliveries are swift.
The portability, palatability and sheer oomph of these gels make them a good choice for longer runs.

A CURE FOR "THE WALL"

Slips down easily and helps to maintain performance during prolonged hard effort. Tested during a marathon. The chocolate flavour is delicious!
Need to buy on the internet - best direct from High5.
Most gels have induced vomit but this one actually works. High5 products are a revelation to me!

THE THINNEST AND BEST TASTING GEL I'VE TRIED, BUT TOO SUGARY

Great taste, easy to swallow, easy on the stomach, small and easy to carry.
7g of simple sugar per pouch is too much for me and gives me an insulin spike leading to a blood sugar low.
The raspberry flavour is by far the nicest tasting of any gel I've tried, and it's also the thinnest and easiest to swallow. It also has good energy density (2.4kcal per gram of weight, compared with 1.5 for SiS Go Gel) which means you're carrying less bulk. This would be the perfect energy gel for me were it not for the 7g of simple sugar (SiS Go Gel has no simple sugar, Carb-Boom! has only 3g). This may not be an issue for many people, but make sure you try them in training before before you use them in a race.
