blogged about Clif Shot energy gels.
Since then, it only takes me about a mile to take down a gel during a race. But now, the product has been reformulated (and I guess I have been reformulated over the years as well, :D).
Clif sent me a sample of the new gel in the Chocolate flavor. I took it with me during a recent 15-miler and found it to be thick (perhaps due to cold) and rather tasty.
Sure, it was very sweet. Maybe too sweet for some (but not me as I am dying from fatigue already halfway through the run), but the chocolatey flavor was very palatable and not artificial-tasting at all.
