Features & Benefits:
All new formula: Great taste, thinner consistency, more electrolytes
3 levels of caffeine: No caffeine: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Razz. 25mg: Strawberry and Citrus. 50mg: Mocha. 100mg: Double Espresso and Chocolate Cherry
Trash-fighting litter leash: Keeps the top attached to the package so it doesn't end up on the road
I usually use one of these after working during the day. I can tell on days that I forget to take one or if, heaven forbid, I'm out. I love the added energy and I can tell I've used one of these babies about half-way through my run. If I use one at that half-way point I still feel energy and I'm able to kick-in through the finish. I really enjoy this product.
St. Paul, MN
I have been trying out various energy gels and chews, trying to find the best combination for digestion and energy during an upcoming 100 miler. This stuff is the best so far. I have been using it in training runs of over 2 hours and recently tried it during a double marathon. At about mile 39 I was starting to really drag. I took one of these and my next 6.5 mile lap was faster than the previous. What would have turned out to be a slower 2nd marathon, turned into a negative split of 7 minutes faster!

I bring this product to my long workouts all the time, to help my "perk up" once the energy from my last meal is gone. I like to have these gels supplemented by other quick energy foods (chomps) and "real food" (pb&j sandwich) on really long days on the bike. It tastes great, is not too thick, and goes down easy. I also love the little leash so you don't toss part of the wrapper on the road or trails.

Heaven in your mouth!!
It is always difficult to find a variety of flavors within a particular brand of choice, but RRS seems to provide this with ease. When you force down gels, as much as I do, no matter how good the flavor is, you always need an alternative. Finding this alternative is sometimes difficult and usually leaves you with a shelf full of unwanted product. However, Cliff's Chocolate Cherry was a perfect selection and a great addition to their lineup. I taste Valentines Day everyday and truly feel the love.
I switched to using mostly Clif Shot gels recently after trying out a few new ones. I love the Razz flavor (not so much of the others though) and the thicker consistency. It's not quite chewing it, but I like it better than the PowerBar gel consistency. It seems to give me a nice boost, maybe something to do with the 90% organic-ness...or maybe it's just me believing that. Either way, it's a good choice!
No upset stomach
When I started training for longer distances, I needed a gel that would not upset my stomach. I have bad acid reflux and there is nothing worse than running with acid coming up. I tried lots of brands. When I was preparing for my Boston Qualifying Marathon, the course had the Cliff Brand gels as their offering on the course. I live on Cliff Bars but didn't know they had gels. I ordered them and was so happy with them. The chocolate has the consistency of thick yummy frosting. It goes down easy and doesn't come back up. I do used water to dilute it and that is generally recommended. I have never had stomach upset with this brand and will continue to use it even when it is not offered on course.
My Go-To For Long Runs
I used Clif gels while training for the Portland Marathon as well as during the marathon, and am still using them when training for various half-marathons, and on any long runs. They go down easily, taste great, and I've never had a problem with digestion. I especially appreciate their organic ingredients. I generally use a caffeinated one at the beginning of a run, and if it's a run lasting 2 hours or more, I'll do one more caffeinated gel for the final 3 miles. The Chocolate Cherry is my ace in the hole! :)
It has been a number of years since Clif changed their formula, but it was definitely for the BETTER! The old, chalky taste is gone, at least in my favorite flavors: Razz, Strawberry, and Dbl Espresso. Taste, litter leash, and value have made this my new "go to" gel for runs over 45 minutes.
As others have said, be sure to take these with water. If you're in a race, spot that next water stop before you down one of these babies or you might be sorry. (I speak from experience -- it was a LONG 5 mile slog to the next water stop.)
This stuff rocks. I got the Double Espresso Turbo flavor. Just like a coffee dessert with some kick to it.
Great Taste/Texture, Love Packaging
Love the double espresso flavor. I don't like to drink coffee before a morning run, but this fills the need for it! This is great for before runs and during. It is a thicker consistency, but I like that so it doesn't all squish out while I'm running. No GI problems and it is great energy. I also like the "litter leash" thing so I don't have to fumble with a tiny ripped off top and make sure I don't accidentally throw it on the ground (if I'm not racing).
Taste is great and works well
Clif shots taste great and are easy on the stomach. A couple years ago I switched to GU because the Clif Shots were just too thick and difficult to squeeze out, but they've changed the consistency since then. Now I use them exclusively. They don't upset my stomach at all and the flavors aren't easy to get sick of. I have used the chocolate, razz, mocha, vanilla and double espresso flavors. They're all good. No problems here except when I run out :D
San Diego, CA
I've probably had a few hundred of these gels by now! I really enjoy the sweet, choclatety taste and the instantaneous boost I get. I kind of look at them as a cup of coffee in my pocket and take little sips from time to time. They're great for any vigorous exercise, like running, hiking, or biking and also just to stay alert, like on long, pre-dawn drives to races.
Easy on the stomach and easy to carry
Love the mocha, have been using it for years. Trained for my first marathon without any gels years ago and learned the hard way around race mile 20 that your body needs nutrition! Duh ;) I take a shot about 15 minutes before my runs and then every 50-60 minutes into my runs/races. The new formula (a couple of years old now) is thinner and easier to get down. Must take with water. My training and races are SO much better now than that first marathon with these gel shots.
Fabulous boost when I need it
discovered a cool use for the litter leash it has... I have a belt that will let me string 3 or 4 of them on it and tuck them up against my back. I just reach back and pull one off when I need it during the run. Cool thing is they don't take space on my belt and when it is cold out it warms the gel to make it thinner.
Marine Momma Bear
I recently tried these chocolate/cherry TURBO gels during a marathon, and the caffeine boost was amazing! I normally use GU gels (primarily for training/competing in ultras and 26.2s), but have found that these CLIFs come in very handy when energy starts to dip after 3-4 hours on the road/trail. Good stuff!!
Great on the move carb sustainment
for moderate and long runs. The packaging design is amazing. Its easy to open while hands and fingers are sweaty, the corrugated wrapper makes tearing open with sweaty fingers no problem. the anti litter tab is also a great idea. The flavor and nutrition profile works great. The flavors with caffeine added are life savers.
Not bad, not great
Effects don't seem to last as long as other similiar products like Gu. Good flavor and a great caffeine substitute for those who just can't drink a coffee before exercising. Taste is good but lasts on your palate a little longer than I like. Recommend taking with water or sports drink to get the flavor out of your mouth.
I use these during any run longer than 8 miles. The added carps help to keep me fueled. I even have some with Caffine for an added boost on run over 13 miles and they taste really great. I like that it's thicker than the GU which is like eating jelly :-(
Macca and Gatorman's Favorite
These things are great. Do some research. There is really no difference in the ingredients in most gels. These are cost effective and easy to shoot during a hard effort. Good boost if you hit one 20 minutes before the ride/run/swim instead of breakfast!
Fernandina Beach, Florida
I take these and Cliff shots almost exclusively. I love the fact that they are natural and 85% or so organic. It may be purely mental but I feel like even the non caffeinated ones give me a better boost than the caffeinated Gu's. They taste great and the litter leash is defiantly a big plus as well.
Still the Best
I've reviewed Clif gels before. They're the best tasting, sweetest, thickest, and best for caffeine. The cherry-chocolate is especially good and often out of stock in the Paramus store; online is not a problem.
Love this stuff!
I love the taste, love that fact they have the "litter leash". And this stuff helps me get through the long runs a little easier. I also use on a shorter run if it's in the evening and I need a little kick to help get me through it. I've only tried the mocha flavor....it has caffine.
Orange Co, CA
will continue to use
Take before my bicycle ride and approximately every hour during the ride. I definitely feel the difference in energy level and endurance. Taste is rather pleasant; consistency of pudding. Goes down easy.
My Go To Flavor!
I used some of the other flavors.. got the strawberry and didn't think I would like it. First time I tried it, I had a great run. The next 3 times I used it were PR runs. Laugh if you must, but it's my go to flavor now for a a big race!! :)
Great product that does the job under most conditions
These aren't necessarily my favorite gels, but they've been the gel at Ironman races the past couple years, so I train with them and also want to support Clif in my small way for backing races I enter. Generally these gels are pretty easy on the stomach and I can handle them for the first 4-6 hrs of a race, except on the warmer days. Just need to find a flavor(s) you like (I used to love the citrus ones, but recently found the vanilla and it's very good). When I'm in a lull during the run, I know I can pop one of these and bounce back within 10 min.
clif shot energy gel
I use the gels before 5k races, and I have used them in the past before Triathlons. I think they taste good and are easy, but you must drink some water with them. I think they could use a bit more caffeine, but they work well,and don't have alot of extra junk in the ingredients!
A Clif Shot every 3 miles does the trick
I've tried all of the gels and energy products -- I love Clif Shots. The company strives for organic and healthy products, and this stuff is just flat out delicious. I take one ever 3 miles for a boost of energy and a water top-up, and I'm good to go.
Love the taste and the consistency is thinner than other gels I've tried. The trash guard also makes clean up a lot easier and you can slide these gels to hang into a waistband if you need to.
best I've tried
I have a busy schedule. If I don't have time to get my last meal before a workout, these give me some carbs and an energy boost. also like them on a long ride or in transition during a triathlon.
My #1 choice of race fuel
Started using this product diluted slightly from a flask. Backed off on calories per hour. This stuff works great and doesn't lock my GI up on long training and races.
