NO NEED FOR THAT BOTTLE OF WATER!!!

Small and easy to carry, if you need to. Will give you an energy boost very shortly after taking it. No need to take large quantities of water with you.
Taste, like everyone has mentioned ( a bit like unset jelly). Probably best to try the 2/3 types of flavour individually first, before you may a bulk purchase. The taste can vary a great deal, so you will have your own preference of which one you like.
A product that does really work, some people may find Lucozade Sport does the same job, the only problem is carrying it on a long run with you. When you first start using them, have a sip of water after a mouthfull to help wash it down, then as you get used to them you will not need the water.

CONVENIENT AND PALATABLE

Easy to use, I tried all three and found all the flavours palatable although i liked the tropical the best. They slipped down nicely and didn't leave a cloying taste or texture in my mouth like some do - the best I have tried
Found the tear off packaging a bit sharp in the mouth
The best sports gel that really gives a boost when you are flagging

WEAK TASTE BUT GOOD ENERGY BOOST

Provides a great boost of energy just when you most need it. I first used these for the Great North Run and was pleasantly surprised at how good I fealt at the point when I am usually starting to tire. I ended up knocking 7 minutes off my PB, which for me is definately not the norm!!
Very weak taste and feels strange in your mouth if your not used to energy gels it's a good job the sachets are only small!!
The point for taking energy gels is to boost your energy at the crucial stage, which these gels definately do. The taste could be better but hey I'm just fussy!!

GREAT ENERGY BOOST, BUT TASTE RATHER ODD!

Great energy boost
Not sticky
Does the job!
Heavy cold bogey texture lol.
Taste - stick to blackcurrant, I spend a good 5 mins trying not to hurl with the other ones!
Great product, odd texture and some rather strange flavours, but I keep buying them, so they obviously do the job!

THE MOST PALATABLE GEL I HAVE FOUND

Isotonic, no water required. Very mild flavour. Thinnish consistency makes it easy to get down. Tropical flavour is actually pretty pleasant.
Like all gels, it's sticky if you spill it in the wrong places.
Excellently palatable gel. Isontonic and actually quite edible. Perfect!!
