      Comments about GU 6 pack Nutrition:

      Wow, GU energy gel is like replacing dead batteries with BRAND NEW FRESH ONES! (literally). I couldn't believe it when I first tried GU; I was feeling exhausted after running 7-miles. Then, I had a GU...and in about 5-minutes, it really kicked in! I was feeling new & fresh by mile-8.
      I would certainly recommend GU to anyone who is serious about training for endurance. GU has many different flavors so you can be sure to enjoy! Easy to carry, I make sure I have a GU with me for any runs more than 5-miles.

      Comments about GU 6 pack Nutrition:

      The "just plain" is adequate and can also be a good remedy for runners who have digestive issues while running. Sometimes flavor complicates things.

        Time to get in on with some Gu Espresso Love. I love Gu. I have friends who says they can only do one every 5 hours or so as it upsets the belly...but I guess I'm lucky. When I ran my last marathon I was zipping two of these an hour and they definitely kept me going. Great taste. Great caffeine boost. Fills the belly and feeds the muscles. Love it!

              GU is been very useful training for a marathon. It Is easy to take while running and is easy on the stomach. I particulary like that there is not alot of air in the poach so they take up less room versus other brands and I can fit more in my pocket.

                    I trained for a half marathon in 2010 and read a ton of articles and reviews on nutrition. The Vanilla Bean GU is what I chose and I honestly had trouble with the texture at first, but it did exactly what it was supposed to: gave me quick energy and nutrition (calories). I chose to go with this again (along with Power Bar Energy Blasts) for a triathlon and it works out great. I can stick one in my jersey to have after the swim, and put a preopened one in my bento box to eat on the bike. They're portable but don't have them warm!

                        I use take this with a protein shake after a workout to boost recovery. I also use it during the a bike or run. I like chocolate, mint chocolate, and vanilla. The rich taste really offsets the fruity energy drinks I may use during a race/training.

                                        Pushing 65 and still run marathons, I have used this gel for decades, it is great and is always being updated. This stuff works, take a packet every 4 miles with H2O and keep going.

                                          I wanted to experiment with other Goo flavors. The lemon lime flavor compliments the thick Goo texture and isn't as heavy as the richer flavors . It is more neutral and if you aren't into overpowering flavor, this is for you.

                                            If you are a mint chocolate lover this flavor will not disappoint. Hope this flavor stays around.

                                              I use these when training for long distances (marathons and halfs). They are suprisingly delicious and easy to swallow. I usually use one every 45-60 minutes.

                                                gives good boost of energy during long runs. The orange and chocolate mint are my favorites.

                                                  I use the product on race day and on days when I run 10 or more miles. I absolutely noticed a difference the first time I used it. It was easy to open and did not interfere with my run at all. I have a marathon in New Orleans on Sunday and I will ceratainly have them with me. Great product. 100% satisfied!

                                                          I use the chocolate outrage gu during any run that's longer than 10 miles or any race! It's easy to eat when I'm nervous or nauseous!

                                                            I use Gu during my long runs and love it, works for me and I like the thickness of the gel, one thing would be great if the package was biodegrade-able, cause after the use put the two bit back into a pocket or hydro pack sticky mess does get every were.

                                                              This is a great product! For someone that does alot of longer runs I usually get sick of the tast to the point I can hardly stomach the gel! GU's vanilla bean flavor not only tastes great but is amazing the energy if gives you almost instantly! I usually take one every 45-60 minutes of my long runs!

                                                              Vanilla gingerbread is also available - call RRS to get it. Nice flavor change.

                                                              This gel is great. We hike on weekends in North County and I take one before going out and it really gives me that push I need to get up and over the hills and back. I take 2 or 3 with me when we do 11 to 15 mile hikes

                                                              Yum! Vanilla Bean tastes just like like frosting and Espresso is also very tasty. Both have worked really well for me on 10 mile runs/races.

                                                              chocolate tastes like choc pudding, great for a gel! really helped the first half of my half marathon, when i ate it pre-race.

                                                              The "just plain" is adequate and can also be a good remedy for runners who have digestive issues while running. Sometimes flavor complicates things.

                                                              Great energy! Used it during my last half marathon and it gave me the pep I needed to finish. I love the orange burst flavor.
