Tasty

I use the chomps that have caffeine, the watermelon was ordered in error. RR should note in the description which ones have caffeine and which ones don't. (like the Bloks description does)I have used the orange and strawberry and the apple cranberry. The strawberry are my favorite. The packaging is better for on the bike if you put them in a bento box, but the bloks are better packaging for holding while running. I also think that these are less sticky than bloks. Both are equally tasty.

LOVE THESE

These are great to tuck into a shirt/short pocket for when i head out on a long run or bike. They are not gooey and they do not stick in your teeth like some other similiar products. I keep a few in my car and at work just in case i need a quick snack to get me through to my next meal. I have only tried the orange and strawberry but they are delicious, love the little caffeine boost too.

Great taste and texture

5

I use these for an extra pick me up for longer runs (5-12 miles for me) and afternoon tennis matches. I am NOT a coffee drinker so I was looking for a caffeine boost. I only need to eat 3-4 of these for a boost--I get shaky if I have more. So, they last me forever! Packages are ncie for transport and are waterproof. In heat, they melt a bit but still work. Strawberry tastes like candy--an added bonus...yum!

sure beats the slug feel

I am a regular GU user during runs, but I really appreciate the real feel of the chomps during bike rides. I also have a teenage son who is hesitant to eat a gel even on 50-70 mile bike rides, yet needs the fuel and will eat the chomps. They provide great energy and are tasty as well. Strawberry is our favorite flavor

GOOD SUSTAINED ENERGY

4

I eat one pack about 15 minutes prior to running, and take additional packs with me on runs of twelve miles or more. They satisfy hunger and prevent hunger distractions during workouts. Affordable and definitely better quality nutrition than "jelly beans."

Love these

5

I use one of these bags before runs and gym workouts, and for long run, have one in the middle. They are easier on my stomach than gels and easier to eat (I think). Only negative is that the package is larger than GU gel, but if you have a water bottle with a pocket, you should be fine. They taste very good--like gummy bears.

Great for long training and races

4

I used these for marathon training and in the marathon itself. I really like the Peach Tea flavor, a pleasant flavor, not too strong or too sweet. Some flavors have caffeine, others don't, so you can choose. Easier to use than gels and goos because these are gummy pieces, not messy or sticky, and you can have as few or as many as you want at one time. Package holds 8 pieces, which is good for two fuel-ups during a long run or race. Digested well.

yummy flavor

I usually eat Sport Beans when i run but decided to give these a try. I took them out of the package and put them in my pocket and it's really nice that they don't bounce around like the beans do. They're a tad sticky but i also live where the heat index has been 110+ so what's not sticky right now?! The flavor is pretty tasty- they remind me of a gummy bear.

Much tastier than gels!

5

I tried a couple different gel or gummy products in preparation for my first marathon and have liked these the best. They are tasty, convenient and haven't caused me any stomach issues. I've tried both the blueberry pomegranate (no caffeine)and the strawberry (w/caffeine) and believe both have given me a much needed boost during my long runs.

Best Energy Source

5

I liked these Gu Chomps from the first time I tried them. The flavor is awesome - no too sweet with a bit of tartness to them. The consistency is even better. The only flavor I'm not a huge fan of is the Cranberry Apple - the three are great. I wish I could find them locally but RRS has to come to the rescue!

Tasty and works great!

4

I use GU chomps for long runs (over 90 minutes). I eat one every 3 miles for a continuous energy source. They come in packs of 8 and I only use 4 per run, so it is inconvenient to store the remaining chomps until my next long run. Highly worth the inconvenience for how well they work!

Good flavor and consistency

5

I used this while doing a long rowing session to see if they would work for an upcoming ultramarathon. The flavor I tried was strawberry and it had a true flavor - not too sweet with just a hint of tartness. I also like the fact that the pieces were not sticky, so they did not adher to my teeth too much and were easy to chew and swallow.

Great for long bike rides

5

I use this product when I'm on long training rides(3 hrs+). It's palatable to chew and easy on the stomach, and kind of reminds me of fruit snacks. I also like the sweetness to it. For me personally, on longer runs I just prefer the gu packs, but these chomps are worth a try.

Love 'em!

5

I don't care for gels (and they don't like me), but I tried Chomps and they work great. One advantage is that you can eat as much or as little as you want, instead of having to down an entire gel. I will eat one or two at a time, every 15-30 minutes to constantly fuel.

Great!

5

I'm not a big fan of gels and goos - I've tried a good many, and they just don't feel right in my mouth. I love Chomps cause they're easy for me to eat during the run and they taste quite good, so it's not a chore to do so. I eat a couple every few minutes starting 20-30 minutes into a run.

Love to Chomp the Chomps

4

This product tastes almost like gummy bears and you can eat these without water unlike the GU Gels. The only negative is the package size is hard to carry on long runs. It would be helpful ifit was in smaler packets.

I have used GU Chomps for a few years and love them. I use these on long runs (8+ miles) and pack them on 15K and 1/2 marathon races as well as the Hood to Coast relay. Great product and a great price through Road Runner Sports.

they're like super gummy bears

I first received Gu Chomps as a free sample with my shoes. I really found them more satifying when on a long bike ride or run. Gels are fast, but if you need to feel like you're really eating something - Chomps do the job.

Chomps are much eaiser to handle than Gu if you have an issue with swalloing or texture. Also it nice to spread out over distance. I am a 15-20 mile/week female runner.

I run early in the morning & the Chomps get me going & keep me going. I use the caffeine Chomps. May be mental, but I really like them.

great-tasting energy

5

i use this product for long runs-1 packet (1 piecce before and then 1 every 15 minutes). It definitely helps me be able to keep going when i would normally feel like slowing. i love the 2 flavors that i've tried orange and blueberry-pomegranate.

I love Gu chomps. They don't get stuck in my teeth like other blocks do. They are easier to eat than the gels. They taste like candy but sometimes they leave a strange after taste.

I first tried the chomps at the PF Chang marathon. I thought they tasted great and were easy to handle. Once I found them at RRS I decided they were affordable too!

I was looking for an alternative to GU gels. I love these! Very easy to chew as I'm running. No more stopping to choke a gel down!

Loved it, pop one in my mouth after about an hour of running savoir it. Keep on going. I can feel the difference. Good energy burst. Very easy to carry on long runs!

Nice alternative to running gels which I found to be hard to open on hot days when my hands get very sweaty. This is an easy to open packet. Tastes good too. Highly recommended.

I received a sample packet of Strawberry GU Chomps with my Roadrunner "New Balance" shoe order. Yum! I do a 45 minute aerobic street style dancing 3x a week and tried the Gu Chomps before my workout today. Nice flavor, nice texture (reminded me of soft gummy bears) without the stickiness! And they are Gluten Free, YEAH!!!!! Sweetened with tapioca syrup and sugar, not the cheap high fructose corn syrup or corn syrup like so many other energy bars or supplements. I will be buying these from now on. These are a winner!

[...] great product!

I chew 3 before my run and 1-3 during longer runs (10 - 13 miles) for optimum energy. Gives me the boost I need to finish strong! Like it much better than the Gu gels.

I have used the GU Chomps without caffeine for my past mid runs (10 miles +) and wish I had gotten the ones with caffeine instead. The taste of the blueberry is tart and nice. The consistency is that of a Swedish fish candy. My only complaint is that it lacked the "pick me up" power of the regular GU gel. Otherwise, it is a very convenient product: you can consumme it little by little and stuff it in your bra without having gu all over you. I will buy again, but with caffeine.

Much better than the Cliff Shot Blocks! Those were absolutely disgusting! These are great, smooth, go down easy and no water is needed! I'm not a huge fan of orange flavored anything, but the orange is great in these!

Taste is great and better than Cliff shot blocks and has extra vitamins. Easier to chew the Cliff blocks as well. Only downside is the packaging. The Cliff blocks has much better packaging for having to carry and easier to get out. Overally great product.

I tried the strawberry flavor and it was decent but I much prefer the taste of the Cliff Shot Bloks. These do have the added vitamins but I honestly could not tell a huge performance difference between these and Shot Bloks. Not a bad product, but I think I'll stick to GU for gel and Clif for Bloks.

I have been a Shot Block fan for a while. I love the Chomps because they seem to have a cleaner taste and no sticky bits stuck in my teeth. They are a little more tart than the blocks but also not as sweet. I love the fact that I don't have to take a bite off the side and keep it in my cheek like a chipmunk to finish later. Buy some Chomps and enjoy!!! I have tried all of the flavors. Haven't met one I didn't like.

I just sampled these at the Carlsbad 5000 expo and they're my new favorite. Slightly softer and easier to chew when compared to the similar Clif or PowerBar products. The best part is that I didn't have little pieces stuck to my teeth.
