TOO SMALL AND NOT EASY TO USE AT RACE PACE

cheap, so ok on training runs
too much packaging, rip opening too small to use quickly at race pace
tried these at race pace @5'50" miling and just couldn't get a good mouth full out compared to Powerbar Gels, there seems to be too much packaging for the content volume and the rip gap is too small, so only recomended for training runs not compeditive racing, as too much effort to be quick

GOES DOWN FAST AND KICKS IN QUICK

Easy to sup, especially when warm
Cloying tastes, slightly over sweet.
Effective and easy on the stomach. Flavours are boring for marathon runs but fine for shorter tours.

HITS THE SPOT ON ALL COUNTS

Okay taste as far as gels go and can be done without water to follow. Reasonable selection of flavours. Reasonable size to carry. Good ebnergy hit. Use 1-2 for a half and 3-4 for a full marathon and work every time
Fair priced, easy carried, does what it says on the pack. Big tick

EFFECTIVE, AFFORDABLE, FOLDS SMALL

The packs roll and flatten easily for tucking in tight zip pockets for during events - I am diabetic and need to refuel earlier than most, but I can easily fit one or two in my pocket with other bits during a 10k). They also do double-duty as a treatment for a hypo, as they have the right carbo amount to treat a low. OK tasting, seems to go down alright even without too much water. I like that it has B vits in it too.
A bit hard to open sometimes when on the go. The peppermint one I reckon is the least palatable, must be an acquired taste!
As someone new to gels (mainly tried drinks before), I think the squeezy gels are decent, I like the brand's simple and rather basic approach. Would buy them again
