Strengths:    Texture was good, Chocolate Raspberry flavor was present and very good.

Weaknesses:    Packaging. I like Clif Shots idea with the tear off staying attached to the main packaging, reducing chance of dropping it accidentally. Even though I put the tear off top in my pocket, it ended up falling on the ground later.

Bottom Line:   
I am getting back in to cycling after many years out of the saddle. Powerbars were about it when I was riding, with Clif Bars coming on the scene the last couple years I was actively riding. With that being said, the amount of product on the market now is amazing considering the limited market I had been exposed too. I had to gag down Powerbars and have not touched one since the Clif Bars came on the market.

I bought a new bike and picked up a "variety pack" of GU and Clif Shots just to see what they were and to see if they might be something I would carry since they are so compact. It had been a busy day and I had not eaten lunch yet, so I decided to break one open just to hold me over until I got home. My energy level was perked shortly after I consumed it, and I felt more energy that I usually would that time of day. I was pleasantly surprised with the GU Roctane. I was expecting something gritty mixed in snot, but it was very smooth, and platable. The advertised flavors were both there, and I found myself trying to squeeze out every drop of GU out of the package. I liked the packaging on the Clif Shots better than the Gu, because when you tear the top off the GU, it will inevitably end up on the ground. I put it in the zippered pocket of my vest and it still ended up falling out. Hopefully they will look into a design that will keep the top attached to the container.

I feel the pricing on all the Gel products regardless of brand is a bit high. I got a pretty good deal on my "sample pack" though. This is a product I will be buying again and I would recommend it to my friends.
