|I haven't tried all of them but seem to like the tangerine flavor alright. If this is not your choice of fuel on the bike then what is? I was also curious of the Cytomax gel, has anyone tried them? Thanks for your answers!|

|I have been using PowerGel for 7 years. I always liked the Starwbery-Banana, Tropical Fruit and Lemon Lime. My new favorite is the Raspberry Cream.

|I hope you don't mean the PowerBar Double Caffeine Tangerine flavor. That stuff if difficult to eat! I still have one left and I'm saving it for a bonk day.
A 41 gram (1.4 oz), 110 calorie Power Gel has 28 grams of total carb's. 5 grams are from sugar.
A 32 gram (1.1 oz), 100 calorie Gu has 25 grams of total carb's. 4 grams are from sugar.
A 41 gram (1.4 oz), 107 calorie Carb Boom has 27 grams of total carb's. 3 grams are from sugar.
A 32 gram (1.1 oz), 91 calorie Hammer Gel has 23 grams of total carb's. 2 grams are from sugar.
I never get tired of the incredible taste of Hammer Gel's Apple Cinnamon. It tastes like the best apple pie you've ever had. It is much cheaper in the 20 oz. bulk bottles than individual packets of any gel, and the maltodextrin complex carbs are an excellent source of sustained release energy. Too many simple carb's (sugar, candy bars, etc.) can create a blood glucose level spike, which causes an insulen reaction. This reaction drops your blood glucogen to a lower level than what you originally started with.
|Imho - Hammer Gel works better but tastes worse. nm||dzrider|
