I bought some of these yesterday - Gu Chews. 4 lollies = one gel so around 25 cal each.
We've been trying various flavours to see what suits us, and during a ride today I consciously practised eating them, because my mid-ride coordination isn't great and I always forget to eat and drink when I'm moving.
We have got a few of the Torque Gels - love the Strawberry Yoghurt one. Also had a Forest Fruit with Guarana - was ok, but I don't think the guarana agreed with me.
I'm very fond of the Chocolate Powerbar ones, reminds me of Cottees Chocolate Topping from childhood
Also like the Gu Espresso ones, so have stocked up on them.
Had a strawberry/banana one to recover from a bonk on Friday - tasted like bubblegum but palatable.
I'll probably have about 5 on me for the ride, might only use 1 or 2.
