    This is the first gel that actually makes you feel as if you were coming back from the dead. Love it! Expensive though, so I only use for runs that last over 2 hours.

      Comments about GU Roctane 24 pack Nutrition:

      I switched from Powerbar Powergels to Gu a few months ago. I had tried Gu in the past but, because I didn't run with water back then, they were too thick to consume on their own. Now that I'm running longer distances, I always have fluids with me so I decided to give them another try. All of the flavors are great, with the exception of cherry lime (not my cup of tea), and the consistency seems thinner now, which is a bonus. I'm quite happy with Gu and have decided to stick with them.

      I tend to save the Roctane gels for races and long runs (15+ miles) but that's a matter of personal preference and training style. All in all, a great product that does what it is supposed to: tastes great and provides noticeable energy when needed.

          Comments about GU Roctane 24 pack Nutrition:

          I switched to this product from the regular GU gels after having hit the wall and cramping up in a marathon even though I thought I was adequately hydrated and fueled. These are more expensive than the regular GU gels, but it makes sense for me because I am the sort of runner that sweats heavily, loses electrolytes quickly, and have a hard type taking in fluids and energy gels quickly enough to maintain a balance. These have made a huge difference to me, especially towards the end of a long run or distance race and is well worth the extra expense. They are more energy dense and have higher concentrations of the electrolytes so they pack more of a punch. The flavors are very pleasant. I would be careful to not overdo it and to leave an adequate time interval between doses, otherwise it can be a bit much to take and can cause nausea.

                  Roctane will seriously give my run an edge, and is so useful to have around on days when when I have start my run at a time when my energy is low or when my legs are feeling sluggish. I also take it before racing, because I don't typically get up early enough to breakfast, but do better with some kind of fuel. I would call this fuel with a little extra umph to enhance endurance in a noticeable way. Nutritional support at its best, nice job Gu.

                          i iam an ultra marathoner, my training consists of 100 plus miles a week of running and there are defenatly days that are tuffer than others, that is where roctane comes into play, open a roctaine when yor energy level is feelin a little lack luster, it gives you that sustaining energy kick w/out the gittery feeling that you need to endure the long distances..

                            I use this when I am in a hurry to go do a long run before or after work. It is easy to process quickly.

                            I also use it on my long runs - marathons - I find that it is more bang for your buck when you are out there for long miles. I am hypoglocemic and this is a great product for keeping me going.

                              This product especially the bluberry pomegranate has a great taste. The ability to buy it in the store as a aingle made me feel comfortable to order more online.

                              i like gu products but mistakenly bought a flavor that doesn't have caffeine. the pineapple flavor tastes good, but wasn't as effective as i wanted it to be.

                                    I'm preparing for my first ultra so I've been experimenting w/ different gels/chews. These, and in particular the pineapple flavor, have worked best for me by far. They go down easy, no after taste and are easy to carry. I use one after the first hour of running, then 1 every 30 minutes until I'm finished. Just finished my first trail marathon (4th marathon total) and these saw me through to the end.

                                    I've been a Gu user for years. Training and racing with it in marathons and triathlons. I had just started doing longer distance edurance events when Roctane wsa introduced. The timing was perfect. I use it for marathons and ultramarathons and half and full ironman distance races.

                                    Gu is a great product, but I have not noticed an appreciable difference between roctane and caffeinated gu, except for the price!!

                                    This is the first gel that actually makes you feel as if you were coming back from the dead. Love it! Expensive though, so I only use for runs that last over 2 hours.
