Roctane Ultra Endurance Gels: This is an energy gel—supercharged. It has the same texture as the regular GU, but contains scientifically advanced ingredients for better performance. This product also comes in varying degrees of caffeine. I liked all the flavors of the Roctane, but the Chocolate Raspberry was my favorite, followed by the pineapple.
Chomps: This was my favorite product in the box. Chomps have the consistency of gummy bears. They taste really good too, not like an endurance product, but like candy. Chomps are much easier for me to down. I cannot take a gel while in the middle of a run, but I can easily chew on some Chomps. When I did my York Rail Trail 10 miler in August, I ate one Chomps block every mile or so. The Chomps also coming is varying degrees of caffeine, a running theme with GU products.
Brew Electrolyte Tablets: These are tablets that you add to water. I broke mine in half and dropped then in my bottle of water. They are designed to be used before, after and during your workout. I will report I am not a huge fan of the taste. This is nothing new for me though, since I am not a fan of any sports drinks due to the salty taste. They are no more or less salty tasting than any other sports drink. I am strictly a water only runner.
