Gel Blasts best yet for pre-running and

COLA is my fav

I loooooove this thing, I love it so much I keep buying by a box. Im' a morning runner and this is the fast thing I eat before heading out for jogging, almost impossible to seperate. Easy to open, easy to digest, and tasty. My fav is the Cola and glad to see RRS is offering it again. I also carry it on travel to snack on. Pricy, but works.

Works for me!

I tried this a year ago and now this is a staple to my exercise nutrition. I feel that it is an alternative to a gel and is easy on the stomach. Also, it gives you a different texture of nutrition if you are competing in long endurance events.(gels and sports drinks) I also am a fan of gummy candies so I especially like it.

Good and sticky

I got my free sample. The rasberry was tasty and yes very chewy. The down side is they make your hands sticky, and with the hard run, my hands are already sweaty so the sugar in these added to that and made my hands feel slimey. Would perfer a dry outer coating to the sugary sticky surface. You can get the same glucose burst from a handful of jelly beans. Didn't see much in the way of electrolytes or vitamin or other nutrional value just pure carb.

Not bad!

I have tried both the Strawberry Banana and the Raspberry. I really like the flavor of both. The texture is a little odd - like a very chewy gummy bear but I love gummies so that worked out. The only con really is the packaging. It is much larger than a gel so it is harder to store on myself while running.

These are great

I have tried almost every brand of energy gel, waffle, and bloc These are my favorite. I think the cola taste is very mild with an excellent texture. The value is great b/c the bag equals 2 gels. I like the ability to eat 1 or 5 depending on the needed boost. I find I can eat just 1 or 2 every 15 minutes on long hard days. Another plus over blocs and gels is even with sweaty hands they have a smooth, dry, non sticky outer surface and leave no residue on your hands and don't stick in your teeth. I also like the way the package fits vertically in my jersey pocket for easy access. The only con is in the winter with bigger gloves. It does require some dexterity to remove these from the package because of their smaller size. For winter I prefer gels or shot blocks only because they don't require fine dexterity to access.

Fun entertainment while you bike

These are really quite yummy, but the packaging is too big. It takes up way too much space in your jersey or bento-box. You can put them in a smaller package to transport, but I don't know why the company can't do that to begin with.

Tastes great, gets the muscles ready

I love this form. Gives you an alternative to gels or bars. Taste is outstanding and the burst of flavor puts one in a good mood before or during a workout (especially if you're on a treadmill) :)

I mainly use these on long walks and runs, but I have some stashed in my desk at work, too. :-) I like all the flavors. They are not messy like gels, which can make everything they touch sticky! They are easier than eating a bar while running. Other gummy energy gels have been sticky on my teeth, in fact, when I was eating a Clif Bloks, I pulled out a filling. (I love, love Clif Bars, so it has nothing to do with the Clif Co.) These do NOT stick to your teeth! Amazing, I think. I find the wrapper easy to use. But I have also put them in pockets rather than deal with the wrapper, or in the smaller Ziplock snack bags. I would die if these would ever disappear. :-)

Really helped my energy

These gel blasts have really helped my energy levels during my runs. I am not real hip on the goo products so these are a welcome alternative.

Great Taste and Reasonably Priced

I use this product often during triathlon training, and before my runs. I sometimes use it as a snack at work.

Easy to get down

After trying other products with a more " tube of toothpaste" type texture I found the gel blasts to be much easier to consume

These are great!

A great start to the morning before and after workouts. Great snack, too. My husband and I stick them in our carry-on luggage in case we get stuck somewhere.

taste is good but packaging is poor

3

Tried this product cycling one day, the packaging is large and not easy to carry. Even worse, it is hard to get the gel blasts out of the packaging without sticky residue all over. This product tastes good and works appropriately, but would not recommend unless there was a packaging change.

Great Stuff!

I have run 16 marathons and have really come to dislike gel's & GU. These are a great alternative. Now that marathon season is over, they are a great way to get quick energy/carb's before an early morning workout

Great alternative to gels

Great alternative to gels for pre-workout or during longer runs/rides. Also a great snack, but takes discipline not to eat the whole bag.

Easy to chew (i.e., doesn't get stuck in your teeth which can be so annoying) and taste great. I only wished more flavors were offered by RR.

Wow, these are definitely chewy! Really didn't feel like something a person should eat. I can't really judge how well they work for energy because I didn't want to eat more than one.
