Salty Trains Hard, Do You?

Post Type

I received a handful of promotional samples the other day, thanks to GU EnergyLabs UK.


The flavours I received were Tri-Berry, Strawberry Banana, Mandarin Orange and a brand new flavour called Salted Caramel. I took these energy gels before I trained and spread them out over a couple of weeks. Taste wise, they were ok. The Salted Caramel was definitely my favourite flavour, something a bit different which I liked.


Here’s a little bit of information on GU Energy Labs UK. They produced the world’s first energy gel in 1991. Since then, GU has continually strived to produce the most advanced sports nutrition products designed for energy, hydration and recovery. Their slogan is – No matter what you are doing, there is a GU product for you!


The Salted Caramel flavour are an optimum blend of carbohydrates, proprietary GU amino blend and a full serving of Vitamins C and E. This energy gel also ensures a fast and easy replacement of sodium and potassium.


Salted Caramel will be sold exclusively as an 8-pack and the RRP is £12.80. It’s savoury profile is projected to become a firm favourite and I can certainly vouch for that!


GU also produce a variety of other products to energise, hydrate and recover. They include drink tablets, brew, energy drinks and chomps. If you take gels and are thinking about a new tasty flavour, look no further than the Salted Caramel from GU Energy.
