This limited release flavour is only available in special 8 sachet packs.

Like all Gu energy gels it contain a blend of fructose and maltodextrin to maintain energy stores along with electrolytes to aid hydration.

Press Reviews

220 Triathlon

What a rare treat! These great tasting gels from GU offer flavour, nutritional options and a unique stance in terms of viscosity. Instead of following the more liquid trend, they actually move closer to the texture of a mildly melted chew with all the flavours being perfectably palatable. This makes it easier to simultaneously breathe and eat compared to standard gels, even more so with a water chaser, and they permit a good fuel hit. Across the options there's a consistent slug of 25g carbohydrate that you'll need to consider when calculating your dose. In terms of specific nutrition with regards to performance, the various options permit you to choose from between 40-55mg of sodium, 35-45mg of patassium, a generous helping of antioxidants, and single or double hits of caffeine""

Verdict - 84% - Great options: highly flavoured so may need tummy familiarisation.
