I've tried a lot of different energy supplements for running and cycling. Sport Beans are far and away my favorite. Gels taste like frosting (yuck for me, YMMV), it's hard to get everything out of the package on the go, and I don't like putting my mouth on the packaging - it irritates the corners of my mouth, and sometimes it's dirty if I'm running on trails. Chews like Shot Bloks or Chomps are too sweet and they stick to my teeth (gross). Sport Beans, on the other hand, are a bit more salty to cut the sweet, and the texture goes down easy even on really long runs or rides. They give me the energy I need and have never caused any kind of tummy upset for me. If I keep these around, I'm likely to eat them just as a snack from time to time even when I'm not working out. Yummm. All the flavors are pretty good, so I like the assorted packs for variety.
Like all refueling products, a bit pricey, but great-tasting and convenient. Easy to eat a few at first stop and finish off later in the ride. Use them regularly, in conjunction with other more substantial refueling products.
I like the taste of these jellybeans and the fact that I can eat one or two or the whole package, depending on what I need. If it's been a long hot day, I find that eating them means I don't wake up with a muscle cramp in the middle of the night. Electrolyte replacement at its finest.
