Anyone use this stuff? It appears to be a good deal. On sale for $10 per 26 serving jug. They claim you can mix it with water like a sports drink or eat it straight from the provided flask. Does it work? Is the flask a hassle to deal with (and how much does it hold)? Any flavors that are good (or nasty)? Do you use it as a drink, or a gel?

I'm considering ordering 3-4 jugs of this stuff while its on sale. I prefer gels to bars except for the cost. It was a sad day when Clif quit selling their gels in those resealable toothpaste tubes that held 200 calories worth of gel rather than 100 calories that everyone else gives you for $1.

I also like the idea of less packaging and litter.
