GU Energy Labs Energy Gel® Just Plain -- 24 Packets
Easy to eat, subtle flavor and no stomach issues
I have tried many flavors and enjoy most but...in the end, I'd rather go with one that doesn't overwhelm or surprise the senses as I'm eating it on the bike. I've tried powerbar gels, eGels and others...but GU's consistency works best for me.
