I typically avoid energy gels, etc. as I don't like the taste/texture. Hoping for a different experience, I tried these for the first time during a 14 mile run and found that I actually enjoyed eating them.
I found the Pomegranate taste to be good and the texture was similar to a good gummy bear. I shared with my running partner who also liked them. I will be buying more and using them for longer runs. They did not bother my stomach and were easily digested.
The pack is small enough to fit in a running belt and easy enough to open while running (if desired).
I use to use the running gels (Gu) for my long runs, but I found these at a running expo and have ordered these ever since. They taste like gummy candy, but give you the energy burst that other energy supplements provide. They don't melt in your pocket, easy to carry (AND OPEN!!). The Gu gels left a bad taste in my mouth and some times were hard to eat with out water. Again, these taste great (a treat on those hour plus runs) and are so easy to eat while working out. I like the box they come in, makes storing them in the pantry easy without taking up any extra space.
These are a new favorite among my run group, which is mostly male. Although they market to female athletes, everyone loves them. The only down side is price -- high for the quantity. I love the extra chewy consistency and the pomegranate flavor is mild and easy on the stomach.
I discovered Luna Moons while training for the 26.2 mile Chicago Marathon. They are delicious and provide the right amount of energy boost needed for a 5 or 6 hour race. I really like the pomegrante flavored ones!
These taste delicious (watermelon is my fave), they are easy to carry on a run and give me the extra energy I need on a long run. The only thing that annoys me is that they really stick to my teeth! It takes me a few minutes to get it all unstuck from my teeth. Other than that they are great for fuel on long workouts. I like them better than the gu's (except for the stickiness!).
