Love these! Use them on long ride as well as long hikes/backpacking. They don't mess with my gut and they actually taste great. Can be a little difficult to chew on days below freezing and opening them on the fly is a bit difficult but overall, my go to on the go food.
After 51 years of cycling and as the current owner of the serious 2019 Venge (bragging to establish ethos), I find this product to be the shi. Its the best one Ive found so far. Give it 5-10 to metabolize and the results are an explosive burst of energy. I swear I can hear the Hamster Dance song once it starts to kick in like a druga legal drug. I usually hit two of the gels every 45 minutes on long rides. The watermelon flavor is the best.
