Please make these with xylitol or erythritol but leave out the nasty stevia. Someone needs to do this. There are zero packets that only contain Xylitol or erythritol. They are the only two without the nasty aftertaste. Please!!!
When biking for under an hour, I don't want a sports drink with sugar, so I use these instead. Especially for indoor sessions, when I sweat a lot. I can't say I notice a big difference in how I feel between these and water, but they say the electrolytes make a difference.
It's also nice having some taste (especially when otherwise the water will taste like water bottle). It encourages me to drink more. I like the strawberry-lemonade flavor. The other flavors I find unpalatable, tasting like chemicals or medicine. Of course, your taste may vary.
I like this format of hydration for shorter rides, I tend to get the electrolytes from the Roctane or normal GU Energy packets on the longer rides. Or use this as a supplement bottle on a century.
These are good tablets, the flavors are not bad, and has enough sodium for my liking. They are not scored for breaking in half to fill 750 bottles. I carry a few in my ride wallet in case I run out of water so I can still replenish electrolytes on long summer rides.
