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.

WORK WELL AND DON'T TASTE TOO BAD !

Once you get a flavour that you like these really do work.
Can be a pain to open as you can easily end up with sticky hands or those anoying small cuts in the corner of your lips ... just like when you ate ice pops as a kid.
I like these, they work for me and like i said before they dont taste too bad if you find a flavour you like. They wont make you an olympic champion but will give you that boost just when you need it.

THE BEST TASTING AND BEST WORKING

Very good. Don't need to take with water, hydrates as well, dosen't leave your mouth all claggy, tastes nice. Slow energy release, all others crash and burn

EASILY THE BEST ON THE MARKET.

Doesn't need to be taken with water.
Great taste.
Good size.
Easy to open.
Good value
A bit sticky if you get it on your fingers (that's all I could think of).
Great. I've tried several types of gel and these are the nest. I like all the flavours but especially the tropical and blackcurrant. SIS got me through my first marathon and I recommend their products.
