MADE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

Easy to open and store in bum bag. I was warned that you get a bit of a horrible taste and you should wash them down with water, but I never had any problems. Quite nice in fact
Not too keen on the tropical flavour, but that's a matter of taste.
First year running properly, I had Snowdonia marathon coming up and a friend advised me to use gel packs, I had never heard of them before. I got two, the blackcurrant and the tropical, took them at 13 and 19 mile marks, what a difference they made. I just wished I knew about them when I was doing my training runs.

SMOOTH AND TASTY, MANY A MARATHON WITHOUT HITTING THE WALL!

Easy on the stomach and not thick and gloopy in the mouth either. You don't need very much water with them.
Sometimes they can be a bit lumpy - maybe a temperature issue? Packets sometimes tricky to open causing sticky spillage!
They're perfect for long runs and I'd feel wrong now if I tried a marathon without a belt (SIS make one that fits these) of 5 gels to see me comfortably round. They seem to kick in pretty quickly too.

SMOOTH AND NOT STICKY

not as thick, sweet or sticky as other smaller gels, so you don't get that claggy feeling in the back of the throat. Easy on the stomach and doesn't have to be taken with water.
Bigger than the average gel, so if using them for a marathon you need to buy the special belt to hold them.
A great gel, easy on the stomach and good for anytime with or without water. By far the best gels I've tried so far.
