MILD FLAVOUR AND EASY ON THE STOMACH, BUT TOO BULKY FOR ME
Subtle flavour, fairly thin consistency (not as thin as High5 but thinner than most), easy to swallow, doesn't need to be taken with water, the easiest on the stomach of any gel I've tried, contains no simple sugar.
Low energy density (1.5kcal per gram of weight, compares with 2.4 for High5 and 2.75 for Carb-Boom!), so you're carrying more bulk around.
These gels have a very subtle flavour, are easy to swallow and very easy on the stomach. They contain more water than most other gels though, so you're carrying more bulk around. I'd need 6 of these for a marathon, and couldn't physically fit them in my pockets and I don't use them for this reason only. If you find other gels unpalatable, or want a gel with no simple sugar, these are definitely worth a try.
