I was able to get these when they were on sale so I ordered two boxes. So far these are the only thing I can handle while doing my triathlon workouts. Something about the swimming and ingesting pool or ocean water really jacks up my stomach. These chews however, taste great and provide enough sustenance to get me through the bikerun. Highly recommended
I carry Clif Shot Bloks on every bike ride and they deliver the perfect amount of carbs to provide the energy that I need and when I need it. The product is easy to store and use and there are several great flavors to choose from. I highly recommend!
Cut the top of the package before your long ride. Squeeze 1-2 blocks out at a time. Wash down with water. Great taste, easy to digest. These are definitely less mess than gels and seem to be easier on the stomach.
Of all the flavors, the Margarita is the best in my opinion. I think that they really help get over that little hump when its hot and you need just a little boost to get you home.
I ride Mt. Diablo in the bay area twice a week. There are two long climbs and I take a chew before each one. It takes a little while to kick in but when it does you can really feel the difference. The climbing seems to get easier, still working hard but not feeling as tired.
These energy gels taste great and do a good job on long rides. I like the boost from the caffeine...especially on windy rides when I need more energy. Before my ride I open the sleeve and tuck in my jersey pocket for easy access. Overall I am pleased with this product...for both taste and performance.
No melted chocolate. No messy Gel. No hard package to open. Pop them easily wo having to eat the entire package. Don't need much liquid to chew.
AND BY THE WAY... they are tremendous for energy and resisting cramps. A near KOM after 70 miles in 101 heat. Now all I need is a decent drink mix.
