Now, I don't us many gels/bars/drinks because my belly gets very upset when running if I use them. So I was thrilled when I looked at the ingredients and I knew what they all were!!!!
Ok, so now to the review. First I tried the Strawberry and it tasted just like strawberry jam. I won't lie that was strange. Don't get me wrong that is not bad but I was not sure what to expect and that was a nice surprise. I wonder if it would be strange to put an energy gel on a piece of bread and peanut butter......YUM!!!
I took it before a planned 4mile run. 4 miles usually takes me about 45 minutes so perfect for a trial I thought. Weeeellllllll my run was CRAP. My entire body hurt as I was just getting back from injury so I made it about 2 miles and threw in the towel so I could not give a review of the gel with the exception of my belly did not get upset.
A few days later I was going out for another run so I grabbed the Apple gel. I decided to start running first to see how it was going to go and use the gel if I knew I was going to go further than 2 miles. After the first mile I knew I would make the 4 miles so I took the gel. Ok so the taste on this one was not for me. I figured it was going to taste kind of like apple sause since the other tasted like jam. I didn't taste any apple but I did taste the cinnamon. It was not bad per say but I didn't like it either. Something I can say is that I had pep for the rest of my run and my belly did not get upset at all.
So overall I think these are great. They are all natural and they work. They are working on coming out with new flavors so I can't wait for them!!
I was given these gels free of charge in exchange for my review. All opinions are mine alone :)
