Vanilla Gu Makes Me Want to Vomit

Friday I went to my local running store to find a replacement for the Vanilla Powerbar Gel and GU I've been using. Recently, I've barely been able to get down even a little bit of it without wanting to hurl. So, with the recommendation of the store owner, I bought GuRoctane, Accel Gel, and E-Gel. I'm gonna give them all a try and see if my gag reflexes subside. I'll use them on my next long runs and write a review when I get a chance. The Jelly Bellys looked better than anything but I've heard the sport version are just glorified jelly beans with added salt. What looks too good to be true, probably is.

  1. maybe you're tired of the flavor? or maybe it's just the consistency of the gel? have you tried gu chomps (or chews of other brands?) harder to chew 'n run, but i kinda like using the excuse to stop and fuel up :)

    hope the change in flavors solves the issue, but the chomps are tasty if you decide to change it up!
