      Comments about PowerBar Powerfood Power Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

      I've been training for a marathon since January and have been bringing a couple of the Vanilla Powerbar Power Gel packs with me on each of my long runs.

      I've found that this product works best for me above all others because the consistency of the product is a lot less viscous and less thick than the other brands.

      It takes A LOT less fluid to wash the Powerbar Power Gel pack down and it doesn't sit in my stomach like a rock.

      I've used other brands and they have a tendency to give me an upset stomach, which is a total pain (no pun intended) when running 10+ miles. To the contrary the Powerbar product DOESN'T.

      Each of these little guys give me the energy boost that I need mid-run to make it all the way through to the end.

      Bottom line: The Powerbar Power Gel packs taste great, go down easy, and provide the energy supplement I need to get to my goal.

          I use the product before my early morning workouts and in the middle of my triathlons. I love that I don't need water immediately after taking the goo to wash it down. It also has a good consistency and hasn't ever upset my stomach.

                Comments about PowerBar Powerfood Power Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

                When I run the 2010 NYC Marathon, I had to stop at Mile 23 for severe cramps. The medical team gave me plain salt and it really helped! I was able to finish the marathon (my first) in less than 5 hours. So sodium matters and Powerbar has 200mg of it compared to just 50mg on the GU (which was what I used during the marathon). Powerbar also has more carbs, more potassium and more content (41g vs 32g) and is less guey so its easier to swallow. It has however twice the sugar than GU (the sole reason I chose GU over Powerbar before). But I realize now that, sodium and carbs are the more important components in distance running so I've been using Powerbar since. I highly recommend this. Strawberry Banana tastes best!

                  Comments about PowerBar Powerfood Power Gel 24 pack Nutrition:

                  I absolutely love the chocolate Power Gel. I think it tastes just like pudding and the density is similar to pudding which appeals to me; however, after about 3 hours of running I usually switch over to a different flavor like strawberry banana because it's not as thick. The more hours I'm running the harder it is to take in nutrition.

                  This product, however, is just tasty as a dessert and I can almost feel the actual energy blast I get from them.

                        I use this gel in training and in competition. I recently became a masters female racer. I believe in taking care of all parts of your running - training, recovery, sleep, nutrition and hydration. Mess up one part and you'll fall short. Take care of all parts and you reach your dreams. Race with powergel. Train with powergel. Repeat for about 20 years and make the all womens start at Boston at age 40! Dare to dream! Oh, and it only works if you are a woman.

                                Was given one on the course of my first marathon 11+ years ago and I have been a loyal customer of powerbar gels ever since. Easy to carry, tastes good and does exactly what they advertise. I think the flavors vary from person to person(strawberry/banana is my go to) but nothing else out there really compares.

                                  I loves this product because the taste is good and it easy to eat. Some Gels are so thick they are hard to swallow while exercising.

                                  I use this for bike and XC ski workouts over an hour. Blueberry - acai is my favorite non-caffeinated flavor. The packing is a little tedious to get every drop out while riding (using one hand at a time). I usually don't take them for running because I don't run for more than an hour, but once in a blue, if I feel very draggy and not running, taking a caffeinated one before the run (strawberry-banna) will perk me up.

                                    I take the Vanilla during Full and Half Marathons. It is more fluid as opposed to "other brands" that are very thick. I can actually take this one while jogging. Like not having to stop and chase with a cup of water. Of course I use sip of water with this... but you get my point!

                                      Best value for gels and has decent taste. Kona Punch is my fave. My wife and I both like the taste and we order this product regularly. Has 200 calories per gel and this one has no caffeine.

                                          I use the PowerBar gel during workouts as a source of carbs and caffeine. I've tried many gels and this is my favorite because of taste and consistent viscosity -- even in the winter.

                                            PowerBar gels taste great and are absorbed quickly. During long endurance workouts or races.....greater than 2 hours.....these gels are very effective in preventing a bonk or hitting the wall!!

                                              I use this product during my long runs and long rides. Its size is convenient and it easy to carry and to to take.

                                                I had one gel 30-40 min before starting 15 miler; then another one every 45-60 min during the run. I definitely felt better at the finish this time than 4 wks ago running 14 miles.

                                                Ovreall a good product, a little too sweet for me. a little less liquid than Pacific gels, but still better than others.

                                                  I have used Powerbar Gels for over 5 yrs. The gel is easy to use. In the winter months it does not turn to molasses like the "GU" shots. I take 1 every 5 miles on extented runs. No stomach cramps issues like other gel shots.

                                                      I like these better than the Gu and Hammer brands, which I find to be too thick and are thus kind of hard to choke down. These power bar gels are much more viscous and go down more easily. I usually don't have water to chase them down, and they are fine. Have more sodium I believe than the other guys as well, no amino acids though, if you care.

                                                        I usually take one about ten minutes before and roughly every 4-5 miles thereafter. I prefer this flavor over others because it is not super sweet. Yes it does have that artificial sweetener flavor, but the coffee flavor dumbs it down a bit. This variety is also much thinner (less viscous) and goes down easier. I still take with water when I can. Also, it is not gritty like other flavors and brands that I've tried. This is my second box I have ordered and will keep coming back- because it works for me. Numbers and stats cannot make the decision, you just need to e experiment a little and see what works.

                                                          I like that this stuff is not as thick and far easier to swallow with a dry mouth than similar products. The Kona punch flavor is quite tangy. It's my new favorite.

                                                            These are on course at most of the biggest marathons: Boston, NY, Chicago, Ironman, etc for a reason. They work, don't upset the stomach, and taste awesome!

                                                            I attribute my ability to finish my first marathon to the energy I received from these gels. You can definitely feel the difference when you take them. I never had any stomach issues and always felt better after each gel pack

                                                            I recently ran a full and used these on the course as well as on my long runs. I tried several flavors as well as several other gels and preferred these over all the others. The Tangerine had a great taste, broke down very quickly for me compared to the other gels, and had the intended effect. Good product!

                                                            I'm recently completed my first 1/2 marathon with my first full less than two weeks away. I've used these on a few long runs as well as during my 1/2 marathon, they work but I have also had a hard time getting them down and had some digestive issues after taking them (burping, stomach knots). I can't seem to find the right mixture of water to gel but they do work.

                                                            These things are awful! I bought some to try because the half marathon I am running is having these on course. I tried the vanilla and it couldn't have a more artificial, chemical-like vanilla taste. I could barely choke it down. I have used GU in the past and will continue using those and will take my own GU along for the half marathon. The only thing that people may prefer is the thinner consistency of PowerBar gel over GU. That would be your own preference. Taste wise, nothing beats GU!

                                                            I used these while training for my first marathon. It was my first experience with gels. It took awhile for my stomach to get used to them and they would cause my stomach to get upset on some long runs (18+ miles). The vanilla was my favorite and was easier on my stomach. I squirt some in my mouth over the course of half a mile to a mile instead of taking it all at once. I did not take them during the marathon for fear of stomach problems and I hit the wall hard and just missed breaking 3 hours by 21 seconds. I think if I had taken some it would have made a difference. I got too empty and my body was drained. Just experiment with them and see what works best for you.

                                                            I like the vanilla because it doesn't have any caffeine. It kind of tastes like cookie dough. It gives me an energy boost and digests well. Not nearly as thick as GU. I buy them by the box for long runs and marathons.

                                                            Love the chocolate flavor - I got nauseated trying to down some of the fruit flavors. The chocolate one is like eating chocolate frosting - not too slimy like the fruit flavors. I eat one about 30 minutes before my long run and one in the middle of it. My stomach tolerates it well.

                                                            I was using GU, but tried these when they were handed out in the package at my last 1/2 marathon. I won't be going back to GU - the consistency of powerbar is a lot smoother, and the extra sodium is a huge bonus if you don't want to upset your stomach by mixing gels & sports drink. Recommended!

                                                            I've tried GU, Clif Shots and Accel Gel and Power Gels are my favorite. The consistency is superior and less viscous than the competition. The added caffeine is a plus too. I use them on all my long runs and marathons. They're easy to swallow when you're breathing heavy and easy on the stomach too. Try the Stawberry Banana.

                                                            These leave a heavy feeling in your stomach much like(powerade). Gu's are a little lighter but an alternative is use them on the bike rather than running.

                                                            These gels gave me the trots. I will stick with gu or hammergel.

                                                            I have not tried the competitors, but am sticking with these since they have caffeine and don't upset my stomach. The latte flavor is great if you like coffee. The green apple if you like jolly ranchers. Neither made me gag - a big plus for gels! Gels give you that boost for 10+m runs.

                                                            I like the thinner formula--can use it without water, unlike the thicker Gu gels. Tastes a bit sweet, but the energy and sodium in worth it in a long training run or marathon.

                                                            The 4X sodium is exactly what I need. I think they taste salty, but other than that I like them alot. Gives me considerably more energy, and I use fewer of them than regular GU. Also, I find this to be a very thin consistency which makes it easy to take on the run. I've had vanilla, chocolate, and latte, so far. I like them all.

                                                            I use them for all my races and long runs. I like then new consistency better than the old. It's not as thick and easy to swallow when I trying to catch my breath at the same time.

                                                            I don't like the new consistency its a bit too thick. I also don't like the taste of the new formula kind of like medicine. But with that said I still choose Power Bar Gel over any of the other gels every run and twice on Sundays. I only use the Strawberry Banana.

                                                            I find that these have the exact same consistancy of GU, which isn't a bad thing per se, but I do find them a little tough to swallow while deep into a long run and the last thing I want is a mouthful of coffee flavored mucus. Plain energy is the only flavor that I'd recommend out of the powerbar brand gels, and its the best tasting of any gel that I have tried.

                                                            I think what most people fail to recognize is the importance of sodium during the long runs, and this offers 200mg per serving. Had these with me during my first 1/2 marathon, and took one 3 miles shy of the finish when I pulled a calf muscle. My last two miles were the fastest of the race. These are a must have...

                                                            GU upsets my stomach also......I find PowerGel is much more palatable, gives me energy, and tastes good!

                                                            Everyone seems to have their 'favorite' flavors on these gels - or at those that are at least palatable, but I found the rasberry cream is actually pretty good as far as taste goes; and PowerGEL is as good as GU or any of the others as a quick energy source on those long runs. I used to use the GU, but I've switched...
