    My list in order of like....

    1. My favorite is Clif Shots. Especially the ones with caffeine. The Mocha + caffeine is delicious. Kind of like frosting in taste and consistency. The lid leash is a nice feature too. keeps the part you tear off from flying away or getting lost.

    2. Honey Stinger = Tasty but kind of thin in consistency. Close second to Clif.

    3. Hammer = too waxy

    4. Gu = too chemical tasting

    Anyone ever try Brawndo, the Thirst Mutilator? It's got electrolytes too.

    I use to train occasionally with a guy who was an Olympic race walker back in the late seventies. He said he and the other athletes would let some Pepsi sit out overnight to go flat and that was their version of the gels of today.

    I am a GU fan myself. Honey Stingers are a bit too sweet for my taste. Favorite flavors include Espresso Machine and Salted Caramel.

    I've switched from gels to chews over a year ago so I cant remember the GU flavors I like. I really like the Cliff shot blocs I know many of you said they are too big.. I just bite one bloc in half, chew and then eat the rest. Never seems to sticky to me. My favorite flavors are:
    Chocolate Cherry, Berry, and island punch? (the light blue one)
