Hammergel Flavors Ques.?(5 posts)

Hammergel Flavors Ques.?JL
Aug 2, 2001 8:01 AM
I was interested in trying out Hammergel. Hopefully, before my first century next weekend, and wondered what flavors were better/worse. I've used GU in the past and haven't found any really bad flavors, but I need to get refills for my GU flask and they only come in Vanilla & Chocolate. Also, the Hammergel looks easier to use and comes with another flask.

Any help would be appreciated.

I've only tried Hammergel's chocolate flavor. It's much less intense than Gu's chocolate flavor, and much less sweet. It's also much thinner. Whereas Gu has the consistency of cake frosting, Hammergel is more like maple syrup.

Banana: my least favorite. Won't get it again.
Chocolate: yum!, but a little messy.
Expresso: see chocolate above, but it has the added bonus of caffeine. My choice for early morning rides.
Raspberry: their most popular. I like it, but it's never in stock.
Orange: pretty good.
Apple-cinnemon: Yum! Their best, and I never have any trouble getting it.

Banana: strong banana wang like cooked bananas or banana baby food. If you don't like bananas, steer clear. It is my favorite.

Rasberry: sweet and slightly acidic, but definitely tastes like what it is...rasberry goop. Very palatable.

Orange: same as above, only orange.

Consistency is similar to honey...a bit stiffer when refrigerated, a bit thinner when at body temp.

The apple cinammon diluted a little with the plain is my favorite.
