Many of us have tried a variety of gels during our training and racing, and had hit or miss results with either the taste or the consistency. I was initially hesitant to try the Hammer Gel products, mostly because they were in what I thought were such strange flavours. Who would want Apple Cinnamon or Raspberry during a hard workout or a race?
Luckily I was given several sample packs of Hammer Gel to try and I now understand their reasoning. Once you try the flavours you will be quite surprised at how good they taste during a hard workout and how easily absorbed they are. There is no metallic or chemical taste as is often the case with some of the other gels (such as Power Gel) and the flavours you never imagined you might like go down smooth and surprisingly flavourful. Go figure!
And to top it off the packets are very easy to open with sweaty hands during a race, something many of the other gels don't seem to have mastered yet!

Buy them by the Box
I'm a 42 novice runner, logging 30 plus miles a week. I have plenty left to learn but 2 halfs and one full marathon have taught me the value of a solid nutrition plan. This is the 3rd product I've used, never had big problems with the others, these simply work better, go down easier and cause zero stomach issues. I use them on anything 14 miles plus. Buy them by the box and just be done with it. Great stuff, made in America too!
Easy to Digest Fuel
These gels are fantastic for some great fuel during workouts. Because they are expensive, I tend to save them for long workouts or competition. Most food/energy products make me nauseous if I consume right before running. However, I ate a vanilla gel right before my 10K yesterday and was adequately fueled without nausea the entire time.

Natural gel that taste great.
I was looking for a good tasting product that helps boost energy while on long runs and during races. Because some gels upset my stomach I was also looking for a product that uses more natural ingredients. Hammer products offer more natural ingredients with the need amount of carbs and sugars required to endure longer runs. The natural ingredients like apple juice also digest easier in sensitive stomachs.
Awesome product. Does what it claims to do which is provide you with energy. I take mine 15 minutes into my long run and every hour there after. Does not upset stomach and easy to consume. The espresso tastes just like a espresso. I like to wash it down with some Gatorade G2 low calorie or NUUN lime flavor. This is something I will most likely have with me for my long runs of 20 miles or longer. A Must have!!!!
Love this flavor!
I always use these during races, but also like to use them in 2 hour+ cardio workouts. It keeps my energy up to finish the task with no stomach upset. Must use with water with them. If a little protein were added to these, they'd be perfect.

I love the taste of the Hammer gels and they are made with good stuff. My only issue with gels are them thickening when it gets really cold. Unless you keep them close to the body they are harder to get out, however, I was able to do so with gloves on. I have since bought a gel flask and jug of gel and that is easier to take, carry, etc.
Love the Apple Cinnamon Flavor!
I've tried many different types of energy gels, and I have not grown tired of the hammer gels, especially the apple cinnamon flavor. When you need energy to sustain you on long training sessions and you just don't feel like eating, I like to have a flavor where I think - yum! and not bleck!

Hammer away mid-run fatigue!
Compared to other gels I have tried, the Hammer Gels have a great taste, don't leave any bad after taste, reasonably priced and are easy to digest! Half way through a long run, Hammer gel gives the energy boost I need to power through. My favorite flavor is the Espresso! I will stick with this product!
Sustained energy plus easily absorbed makes Hammer Gel my choice for runs and rides that exceed 60-70 minutes. I use the Hammer Gel (Apple Cinnamon tastes like apple pie) in the first hour so I have plenty of stored glycogen later.
This stuff works as advertised, will not cause stomach issues and tastes good.
Hammer Gel 12 PK - Chocolate
Hammer Gels are great especially for the runner with a picky stomach since it's a more natural option than the popular GU Gels. They definitely help give that extra energy boost at the end of long runs. The taste (chocolate) is a little bit bland, so if taste is your main priority, I would say stick to GU.
I absolutely love the Hammer Gels - specifically the espresso. I am a diabetic and I needed something to fuel me during my Half marathon training that didn't feel heavy or turn my stomach. The gel did the trick. Highly recommend for that added oommpph during long runs.
The only gel I consume
I love this gel. In fact, it's the only gel I will consume. It doesn't upset my stomach like all other gels I've tried (and we're talking alot), is relatively easy to open, and it doesn't taste too bad, so I don't actually dread consuming it. Definately helps with energy level.
I have tried GU and Honey Stingers, but the Hammer Gels by far have the best flavor and consistency. They are much easier to consume while on the run and seem to do a nice job of keeping me fueled on long runs.

After trying a myriad of gels this is the best I have found...it doesnt seem like it is working until you realize you have just run 3 miles since taking it and you feel great...it is not a quick rush and gone but a steady constant flow of energy without the spikes...highly recommend

love hammer gel!
I love using Hammer Gel during long runs. The flavors are really great. I love espresso and the apple flavor. It much easier on my stomach than other gels.
Perfect sized box!
I've used Espresso for my long runs for 2 years now...taste is great and it fuels and boosts (caffeine is your friend) at the same time
tasty and smooth
Great taste and texture. Easy to use while running and cycling. I'm recruiting my running group to change to Hammer Gels!
Tastes just like apple pie!
Loved the taste of it...like eating a piece of warm apple pie. Best part was it's Gluten Free, unlike the other products out! Defintely recommend
Hammer Gel is my go-to product for race day. I'll do a squeeze of espresso 15 minutes before my start and, wallah, I'm flying. Thanks Hammer!

Smoother than Gu
Think their flavors are not as harsh as Gu. Might be due to using more natural products.
Need to work on the slits for opening them though, little difficult with sweating hands trying to run.
Hammer gels get me to the finish line
I use Hammer gels on my longer runs and for racing. I like that they are easy to get down (not too thick) and don't taste all that bad. The Vanilla is especially mild tasting for gel. The main sugar is maltodextrin, which is easier on my stomach than fructose or honey. And with only 2 sugar grams, they are much lower in actual sugar than most gels, which is also easier on my tummy.(total carbs are 21 grams, which is comparable to other gels.) Have to say, these are the only gels that don't give me stomach upset on a long run.
Running by THE BOOK
Goes down easy.
Tried it because a couple of races gave it out. Now I really like it. Helps me power through long distances.
The espresso flavor is great if you like coffee flavor! I noticed a definite improvement when consumed a few minutes before starting my run routine.
Easy on the stomach for the long run
I use Hammer gels during long training runs and races (10K-marathons). It has helped with various GI issues I was having with other gels and chews- I have never had any problems with Hammer nutrition. Huckleberry and raspberry flavors are delicious and caffeine free. I take 1 just 20 min before the run and then every 30-45 min during the race with plenty of water and I feel great.
Gray but not old yet
Use it before bike rides and longer runs. Great boost of energy and it's super easy on the stomach.
works great, tastes like dessert!!
I take this on long runs during training. Keeps me going and tastes like apple pie filling.
Great taste and even energy
I have used Gu Rocktane for a number of years and was getting tired of the harsh, artificial taste. Preparing for a recent 100 mile trail race I decided to give Hammer gels a try as most aid stations would have Hammer beverages too. I was pleasantly surprised by the natural taste and ease on my stomach. Good stuff, I am a convert!
Love the flavour, Love the caffine
I love the flavor straight, but would be good mixed as well.
I love that Hammer is all natural!
Hammer Gel Fan
Hammer Gel has been my gel of choice for a few years now. Actually tastes good (well the Raspberry flavor anyway).
