If you’re relying on prepackaged energy bars or liquids to keep you fully fueled when hiking, biking, or running long distances, you know just how bored your taste buds can get. To combat this problem, the training nutrition experts at GU have developed calorie-dense energy gels in a wide range of flavors that include strawberry kiwi, jet blackberry, salted watermelon, and chocolate outrage.
The latest energy gel release from GU, Hoppy Trails is balanced to taste like the IPA that you’ll probably enjoy after your hike is finished (the gel itself is alcohol-free). Flavored with ample hops and key notes of citrus, this is an energy gel that beer lovers will be eager to try. And just like all GU energy gels, Hoppy Trails is loaded with energy-giving carbohydrates as well as electrolytes to aid in hydration and branched-chain amino acids to combat muscle damage and mental fatigue.
