GU Energy Gel - 24 Pack

Get gooey.

The 100 calories of complex carbohydrates found in all 24 pouches of the Energy Gel 24 Pack are only part of the reason why Gu is such a ubiquitous sight in the peloton and on recreational rides. Gu's Energy Gel also packs amino acids, antioxidants, and muscle buffers to help begin the recovery process even while you're refueling mid-event. A splash of caffeine helps kick your engine into fat-burning mode, and the packets are easy to tear and eat — no chewing, no two-handed fumbling, and no risk of choking on solid food during hard efforts at an unrelenting pace.

  • Complex carbohydrates for virtually instantaneous energy
  • Includes amino acids and other recovery aids
  • Easy to ingest during an event or race

Simple. Work.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

You have to admit, this fuel works. Especially for rolling hills and mountain climbing, patch one of those every 45 mins boost your energy. Doesn't matter caffeine or decaf, it just works.

Tasty energy

Good pick me up while riding...

Don't love Gu but it works well for me.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm not a huge fan of gels in general. The taste is ok with the best ones being Espresso and Mandarin Orange, IMO. What I will say about Gu is they seem to work for me. They provide the benefits that I need on long rides and are easy to eat while on the bike. I've found better benefits to other Gels that I have tried.

Pretty tasty

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I'm generally not a big fan of gels, I usually prefer chews. I picked up the salted carmel flavor after seeing all the good reviews and they are actually pretty good, much better than gels i remember from past experiences and good enough to continue using. I like the smaller size on these, it's easier to carry more of them on longer runs. I typically have one every 45 minutes on long runs and it helps keep me going without giving me any stomach issues.

Chocolate Outrage is a classic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been cycling for many years and one of the first ride specific foods I had was the chocolate outrage Gu flavor. It tastes like brownie mix, seems to do me perfectly near the end of long rides, and has been around forever (so you don't need to worry about becoming attached to the flavor only to have them discontinue it).

GU Savers!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are life savers! I got the chocolate peanut butter ones and they are pretty thick and a little hard to get down at first but the taste is really good. They are awesome for those heavy work out days when you really need a quick boost! I always start to crash after the first hour of working out but I started taking these GU's and it really gives me the boost I need to go 2 more hours!

Chocolate Outrage!

These are great to pack for long approaches and worked well on my 5 day Salkantay Trek. None of the packs broke open. The chocolate outrage flavor tastes just like brownie batter.

Quick and Easy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not the biggest fan of energy gels but when your're tackling a long brick workout you've got to replace what you loose and GU makes it pretty easy to do so. They come in so many different flavors so you're bound to find one that works. My favorites are salted caramel, cucumber mint and peanut butter.

I love GU

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

So many flavors...so little time. My biggest problem is deciding which kind to buy. Unlike some of their competitors, I won't name, I don't find myself with packs unintentionally ripping open in my pockets or packs. Muy bueno!!!

Real Tasty

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got the Salted Watermelon Gu's. They taste good, and work as they should!

Lemon sublime es mu delicioso!

    Jet blackberry OH MY!

      Another one of my favorites. The only flavor I don't' like is Vanilla. :(

      Jet blackberry OH MY!

      Best out there!

        These are always with me for long run Saturdays or on a day hike. These are the best tasting gels out there.



        Cucumber mint is my new favorite!!

        Best out there!

        Energy on command.

        From my understanding when you are training or running a distance race you should consume at least 140 calories for every hour you are running with simple carbohydrates and electrolytes so brain and body function say optimal. When I train for half marathons I would eat w/water before I started and at a 1-hour make give or take my feeling. These saved my life with I ran my Half I ran the first half way too fast ran, hit a wall about 3 miles to the finish. I used one of these to give me the energy to get over the wall. In my opinion, the chocolate and caramel taste the best.

        Deliciously terrible

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Gu's are gu's no news to you's.

        Buy it

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        They tast good

        salted caramel is perfect

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        of course, it works like all gu gels work. but the taste? best tasting energy product out there. i'd put it on ice cream if, you know, that was allowed. i thought vanilla bean was the greatest, but the salted caramel rules all gel products. i do wish gu would put a little tether on the tops, though - too easy to tear the top completely off while riding which makes it tougher to hold onto.

        Good Gels

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The watermelon flavor is fantastic! These work as intended and add energy to my rides and hikes.

        Fantastic

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I use the blackberry every couple of hours mixed in with the other flavors, or when needed for the extra boost of caffeine. They do the trick. Might be to sweet to use for an entire long run though.

        Love Rootbeer

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Best flavor of all time. I just wish it had caffeine. So easy to digest.
