Launched in 1991, the world's first energy gel is still the most efficient sports fuel available today. GU's carbohydrate blend delivers high-quality, easily-digested and long-lasting energy for athletes in every sport and at all levels.
GU Energy Gel packs 100 calories into every packet. 100 calories is an ideal serving size to suck down 15 minutes before training or racing in order to top off your electrolyte and glucose stores, followed by one every 30-45 minutes along the way, washed down with a few sips of fluid.
Energize, Sustain, Recover - GU's formula for success.
For optimum results, always drink at least 24-30 ounces of fluid per hour during training and racing.
Exact GU intake depends on the intensity of your pursuit and your body weight and fitness level. The fitter you are and the more efficient your metabolism, the more GU you can eat each hour, up to approximately 340 calories every 60 minutes.

Gu seems to be one of the more difficult brands to find in stores in my area, but I do like it, especially the peanut butter. I find Gu to be one of the thickest gels out there and the flavors are never overly strong, but PB is a great option that I don't think anyone else makes. I like to have a variety of gels and Gu doesn't disappoint.
These complete me. When I am on the bike/running/trail I pull one of these out to give me that blast of nutrition to keep me killing it. These are super easy on the gut and allow me to feel confident that they will give me what II need to get the job done.
I've used this product and flavor on multiple 20+ mile runs and it worked great. I wasn't too sure about the peanut butter flavor but surprisingly it has turned out to be my favorite of all the flavors. Definitely 2 thumbs up and going back for more now.
No chemical taste. You have to like peanut butter and if so than you will like this. GU seems a bit thicker than other brands but it may just be the peanut butter flavor. No to sweet and goes down better than the chocolate.
drank it/ ate it lol. A little while later I did feel a second wind up on the mountain. had the peanut butter it doesn't exactly taste like peanut butter but its not bad either
This chew does the trick and out of the other options, in my opinion, it gives me the best energy boost. Decent taste.
These are great tasting gels that provide lots of quick energy...love the Strawberry bananna flovor but all are good.
