GOOD PRODUCT, CONVENIENT, DOES WHAT IT'S MEANT TO DO
Provides the right boost of energy when it's meant to, easy to carry, no need to wash it down with water. Palatable (better than most I've tried). Can be tucked into your shorts.Not heavy on the stomach.
Consistency could be better - it's a bit like unset jelly. Flavours are a bit waterey, but maybe that's a good thing (no overpowering taste from any of them). A bit sticky if you get any of it on your hands (which I frequently do!)
SIS ticked the most boxes for me. They taste OK, as energy gels go. I like the fact you don't need to wash them down with water - on a long run having a gel & a drink together can feel more like a meal. Easy to carry, just tuck them into your shorts if need be, or fold into a pocket. Performance boosting capabilities are good and the carbs to be absorbed quickly. After trying the flavours, stick with one & buy the boxes, works out cheaper. They also work well with the other SIS products.
