Cycling Weekly Test Winner
"You're on to a winner when your energy gel tastes like a treat"
Ed the Cyclist
"Flavour wise- hold on, let me take a moment to grapple some words to describe it with... Yummy"
I’m a bit biased when it comes to Salted Caramel (usually in cake format), anyway the Salted Caramel Kicks is a tasty hit of syrupy energy easily stashed in any pocket – we found it easy on the belly (I have history with some energy gels upsetting the stomach) and not too sharp to for use when feeling a bit naff when training.
Mulebar certainly do some interesting flavours, and Salted Caramel seems like one that is particularly suited to this time of year, when you can do with a bit of comfort on the bike.
This gel has a great taste, texture and is a good size to squeeze down in one go. It provides a good energy kick, and it also contains electrolytes that should reduce the chance of muscle cramps.
If you keep your energy food mixed, and throw in a few interesting flavours like this, then it can make fuelling on the bike far more enjoyable.
