Product Description

Flavor: Assorted Flavors | Size: 24-Count

GU Original Sports Nutrition Energy Gel is the energy gel that started it all. In 1993, Dr. Bill Vaughn developed the world’s first energy gel to help his daughter perform better during ultra-marathons, and GU has been helping to propel the world’s most successful extreme athletes to success ever since. GU Energy Gel sustains all forms of athletic activity with a highly compact, portable, and calorie-dense packet that is loaded with carbohydrates that can be rapidly absorbed. Branched-chain amino acids limit muscle fiber damage and increase speed of recovery, and extra electrolytes help maintain water balance. Some flavors feature caffeine to increase concentration. While the original formula has been tweaked and evolved over the years, the end result is still the same: GU Energy Gels fuel the best endurance athletes in the world. GU Original Energy Gel comes in a wide variety of good tasting flavors. Each packet contains 450mg of Amino acids, 100 calories, and at least 21g total carbs.

Flavor Name: Assorted FlavorsSize: 24-Count Verified Purchase
Updated. I started researching gels while training for a marathon. GU stood out (online and offline) as the preferred brand for runners, so I ordered this as a sampler and hoped a few flavors would be digestible. Fortunately, all of the 8-10 flavors were decent (some are quite good!), the gels have gone down easy and work as intended. Very satisfied with the GU brand choice. After finishing the first box, I have since ordered two more.

My review is really to highlight the addition of caffeine--if you are strictly avoiding caffeine while training, do not order this 'mixed flavor pack'. Some of the flavors include caffeine, and several contain 2x the amount. If, however, you're at least not completely opposed to caffeine, order this. It's the best price/value I could find at $27.49 (free shipping), and the dose of caffeine at 20 mg is hardly noticeable...less than one-fifth the amount in a cup of coffee. Personally, I'd still like to have known this upfront, but hope the review is helpful for others considering gels.

Updated 8/27/2012 - Looks like this SKU is no longer available, which is disappointing. Should it return, the flavors are: Vanilla Bean x3 (caffeine), Mint Chocolate x2 (no caffeine), Strawberry Banana x2 (no caffeine), Lemon Sublime x2 (no caffeine), Mandarin Orange x2 (caffeine), Jet Blackberry x2 (2x caffeine), Espresso Love x2 (2x caffeine), Tri-Berry x2 (caffeine), Chocolate Outrage x2 (caffeine), and five new Roctane formulations (one each) that GU is marketing as premium: Chocolate Raspberry (2x caffeine), Vanilla Orange (2x caffeine), Cherry Lime (caffeine), Pineapple (no caffeine), Blueberry Pomegranate (caffeine).

Flavor Name: Assorted FlavorsSize: 24-Count Verified Purchase
I recently started amping up my exercise routine, you know—going to Soul Cycle, spending more time on the machines, and doing yoga in the evening. It’s weird, once you start doing one thing (like going to the gym) there’s a whole world of fitness out there and so many things to try and try to get done. I most recently decided to run the marathon next year, which means I will need to run a couple of them in the coming months, which means I seriously have to focus on my fitness regimen. I’ve been looking for different items that weren’t too…chemical-y(?) to eat/drink on my routine when I found these energy gels. I bought the pack, and while one of the flavors was pretty gross (looking at you, Jet Blackberry) everything else was great and work exactly as prescribed. Being on a strenuous workout schedule is easy with a little supplement here and there, and the sports gel is added in the mix with Protein pancakes, a vitamin supplement NootropX - 90 caps - Mental Focus and Concentration Supplement With Memory Enhancement For Extreme Clarity and Alertness - Instant Brain and Memory Power Boost From Patented AES® Absorption System - The Ultimate Brain Vitamins (for focus and energy) and believe it or not, I also use Carnation Breakfast shakes. They give me tons of nutrients, and they’re good to mix with fruits and nuts for shakes after working out. Anyway, back to the sports gels, they’re really good, definitely get them if you’d like something to pump up your energy, and won’t give you palpitations.

Like most users of GU, I run marathons. I chose this package because I wanted to find a flavor that I could stomach later in a race and this let me experiment. This package has eight separate flavors: orange, vanilla, espresso, berry, lemon-lime, chocolate, banana, and plain. I won't comment on the taste because that is an individual preference, however, I do prefer GU to Clif Shots, which to me are pastier and harder to get down without a good amount of water.

I've used for preparation for my first half marathon as well as during the event. I am now training for a triathlon including a 50 mile bike ride. This product works for me - gives me confidence and fits into my fueling strategy. Planning on taking with me to Yellowstone for some day hiking.

I don't really like these so much. We were training for our first half marathon, so just bought what we were told. They worked for me...I didn't have any digestive problems, not did I bonk. In fact,the flavor of the chocolate one was surprisingly ok. But, the texture, someone suggested to me is toothpaste. Maybe they shouldn't have said that and I shouldn't repeat it, but now that's all I can feel. It's like, wrong. I'm going to suffer through these, and then try the beans. But, if you KNOW you like these, it's a good deal (I guess).

Its GU! What do you want. It is what it is and it does what it is supposed to do. Comes with a nice variety of flavors. As a marathoner and IRONMAN triathlete, I go through a TON of this stuff. I like all the flavors they produce except one. Salted Watermelon. For some reason that 1 flavor and 1 flavor alone does not agree with me. Of course, thats 100% personal, as if your preference on flavors and which ones your body can handle. And that flavor does not come in this variety pack, which makes me happy. If you use GU, buy it here in bulk.

Flavor Name: Assorted FlavorsSize: 24-Count Verified Purchase
I have been using GU for the past 2 weeks now as I begin my half marathon training. I ordered the multi pack which contains strawberry/banana (no caffeine), Raspberry (20mg caffeine), Salted Caramel (20mg caffeine), Vanilla Bean (20mg caffeine), Chocolate (20mg caffeine), and Jet Berry (40mg caffeine). All the flavors have been great, none of them leave a weird after taste. The texture does take some getting used to, but the thickness is no different than any other energy gel out there. I usually begin with a GU 15 mins before my run begins, and depending on the length of my run, try to use them every 45-60 mins. I also make sure I stay hydrated throughout my run. I had been training for 6 months with no energy products, and was recently introduced to GU. The two weeks I have been GU-ing, I have seen a huge difference in endurance, speed, and energy throughout my run. My muscles no longer cramp mid-run, I have been able to shave 1 minute off my mile. I highly recommend this product!
