I just sampled the latest flavor offering from GU Energy
Gels, Mandarin Orange, and I have to say the taste is 100% spot-on. If you’re a
citrus fan, I’d suggest you give this gel a try. Not only does it provide 100
calories of sustained energy from all natural ingredients to fuel your
workouts; it’s like having a sweet little clementine tucked in your bike jersey
pocket, minus the sticky residue from peeling the real fruit.
In the interest of full disclosure, I’ll let you know that I
previously worked for GU – though well before Mandarin Orange was a twinkle in
the product developer’s eye. While I’ve long been a die-hard Vanilla Bean GU and
Pineapple Roctane fan, this tasty new sports nutrition treat is quickly topping
my list of favorite flavors.
