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.
