GU Drops Are Great!

I went on my first trek ever to Half Dome last year at Yosemite. I had only gotten about an hour of rest the night before, if that. I was extremely lethargic starting out on the hike, and just before I reached the halfway point to the Dome (Nevada Fall), I felt like I was dying and thought I'd have to turn back. However, I remembered I had a package of GU drops in my pack (Strawberry w/caffeine). I ate the entire pack as I chugged along and a few minutes later, I felt a sudden burst of energy. Because of that, I was able to go on and complete the entire hike.

The only two flavors I have tried are strawberry and orange. I love the strawberry ones because I love strawberries. They also have caffeine, which helps a lot when you're lethargic. The orange ones are caffeine-free and they are just okay. Like oranges, they are a bit tart. The strawberry ones are like a party in your mouth. Lol!

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about these GU drops except that REI should sell them for less. They are kind of pricey. The best time to get them is when they are on sale. Buy them in bulk.

Totally addicted

I have to laugh at all the bad reviews on here because I am totally addicted to these things. I was a big Gu gel fan but I have to admit I only ever liked the vanilla and chocolate flavors.
I pretty much like all the gels blocks out there but the Chomps really are the best (in my opinion :) Again, I choose my flavors carefully, the highest recommendations are for the cranberry, strawberry, watermelon and peach. The flavors are super yummy, a little sour and a little sweet. I especially like that they are light, easy to carry and share. I always bring extra on my hikes for folks who are running out steam and could use a little boost. "The first one is free" I also like to eat a serving before my gym workout..a little caffeine is great for getting the most out of my workout.

You HAVE to try these!

I love these chews. They are easy to eat, good taste... a bit sour, but sit well in my stomach, and don't upset the gut.

I have been using these of and on for about a month and have really enjoied them. They give sustained energy, not a boost... just continued strength for 45-60 min per pack.

They are soooo much better than the gels for taste and general eating... I don't see me using anything else. For an "Energy" product, these are the closest items to candy I've eaten.

Gu hit a homerun here!

I run 5-8 miles per day w/ 8 min pace. Hills, flats, you name it.

good taste and boost

I have used the GU Chomps (Blueberry flavor) a number of times before and during mountain biking runs. They actually taste very good and provide me with a nice energy boost. The only downside is they are not as fast or easy to eat as gels. 4 pieces per serving requires me to stop my bike and eat them where as with a gel I tape em to my bike rip em and eat on the go. These would be very good for hikers or something of that nature.

Excellent taste, very addicting

Watch out these can become very addicting. I have only purchased the Straw or watermelon flavor. Its very easy to finish off the package easily. They pack well, I use these mainly for when I am out playing paintball on long days. I take 3 "rocks" before I start the day (9am) and then finish the rest of the bag by 2pm. These do provide a slight boost / pick-me-up. These can get a little sticky if left in a warm spot.

Quick energy boost

I love these, especially the lemon flavor. I consider myself to be very picky about taste and texture in pre-workout drinks, protein shakes, energy bars, etc. These taste good, are easy to eat, and don't upset my stomach like some of the gels. It's like eating candy. The only downfall is the packages are sometimes difficult to tear open in the middle of a ride. I just start a cut with scissors before I ride and they rip open easily.

Used the new GU CHOMPS for a slow 20-mile run and they are excellent. From what I can tell, they work just as well as the gels. But, like most of you, I can no longer stand the test and texture of the gels ... strawberry and blueberry chomps were great. Just a hint of saltiness and 99% like candy. No more gels for me! Great product and five stars.

get the BB-Pom

Out of all the companies that sell gummy-type items, I like the GU chomps best. They go down easy (if swallowed accidently during hard efforts you won't choke), are tasty, and provide sustained energy. The strawberry tastes bad, but the improved version of the BB-Pom is good. Haven't tried other flav's yet. Good enough that sometimes I eat one or two pieces for desert or for a snack.

Not bad

I have been experimenting with different energy gels and chews. I have a hard time with the texture of the gels and find these to be a great substitute. I prefer the chomps to shot bloks which seem larger, stickier, and have a weird salty taste. I wouldn't have these as a snack, but for what they are they are good.

quick acting

GU Chomps are delish and the effects are quick; they have dragged me out of a bonk more than once. Also, I like the fact that they go down easy with or without water. They are a little hard to open while biking, so just make sure you open the package before you head out!

Negative Reviews:

Awfull taste (blueberry/pomegranate)...

I've been using the old GU gels and the new ones for 5+ years and I have been very satisfied (I just want the big refil packs back!).

Now that I just got the chomps and tried them (at home) I feel I can describe them in one word: awful! No idea if all tastes are the same, but blueberry-pomegranate is all I bought.
Being too sour can be tolerated, but the texture, the taste, the aftertaste...
Even if they provide better power than the gels I cannot convince myself to eat them again (will stick to GU gel).
I recently tried Powerbar's GelBlasts and they are a lot better.

Worst of the Bunch

I almost feel bad about writing this, GU missed the buck on even coming out with a gummy. But these are truely awful. Out of all of the ones I've tried, these taste the worst. I could not even finish one packet. They are oddly bitter and salty and have a texture a touch too reminicent of stale gum drops

Neutral Reviews:

Sticks to your teeth

it was my first time to try it since I'm normally using gu gels. I saw it on sale and wanted to try it instead of gels because gel usually makes fingers sticky after you eat it. Taste of strawberry chomps was ok , I didn't feel any immediate boost but I did just 10K run that day so it might be too short to tell. The main problem for me was that chomps were sticking to my teeth (I don't like gummy candies for the same reason) but I do have a lot of crowns which makes it happen. I wish it could work for me since I'd rather have my fingers clean without sticky residue gels leave on my fingers.

Not bad, sticks to my teeth

I use it before and during my runs. For short ones I have one bite before to keep me going until night dinner when running after work. During long runs take one every 30-40 min. I would prefer chomps to gels because they won't make your fingers sticky but they do stick to my teeth so I'm not ready to replace completely my gels with chomps yet. It seems they provide energy although it's not obvious as with gu gel (especially with gu roctane). Taste is rubber like, I'm not into chewing candies in general but it's OK with me. I would certainly try it if you never tried it before.
