Strength:

It tasted ok.

Weakness:

I think it is more me than the product, but the texture of the "gu" type products freaks me out. Tastes ok, but the texture is thick and my I would rather eat sand.

The taste was not bad, but the texture freaked me out. I might try some of the espresso flavored gels to see if I like them more.

Strength:

This is for the Dbl Expresso flavor only: It tastes the best of any of the gooey stuff out there. The espresso in it really helps to cut down the insane sweetness that the other flavors/brands all have.

Weakness:

Unless you like a mouthful of epoxy, the texture still sucks

Of all the quick energy products out there, the Clif Dbl Expresso Shot is my favorite and the only goo style that I'll use. I's the only one that doesn't taste like diabetes in a tube.

Strength:

tastes great--at least the Razz Sorbet does. I've also used the Vanilla--good, but not as good as the Razz. They give you energy, so do what they are supposed to.

Weakness:

Texture is like grease. Texture weirded me out at first, but now I am used to it. Price. Get them on sale--got a 24 pack for $30, a different time I picked a 24 pack up on sale for $16--which I think should be the normal price.

These are the only product I have tried yet, so I can't compare them to others. These do seem to do the trick, though, as long as you can get past the sticky, grease-like texture. Water is necessary, escpecially with the Vanilla; the Razz isn't as bad. However,you will probably drink water when you break to suck one down, anyway, so it isn't a big deal. Give it a shot.

Strength:

Cheap, tastes alright, and works fast!

Weakness:

the taste is awful... but better than powergel.

The stuff is awesome, and i hear mixing them into 500mL of water makes it a decent sports drink (though i have a fear of trying that one). The stuff gets into your body really quick, escpecially when you feel like you're gonna just die. The instructions say one shot / 45 minutes... uh... i think that is if you only take water and clifshots only. I don't think i could stomach one every 45 min.

FritzMan   Racer [Apr 16, 2003]
Strength:

Ease of consumption. Texture and taste (chocolate). Cool package design to keep lid and package as one piece - even when open. Works great.

Weakness:

Price?

Compared to the PowerGel I like the Clif Shot more. It's easier to empty the contents because of a larger opening, smaller size, and more liquid-like texture. Taste is great (like chocolate syrup).

I like the fact that there's an extra tab running from the lid to the package body. That way you can tear off the top, but it still remains attached to the package so you don't have to deal with two pieces.

I also have to say for me it appears to have a better energy kick than PowerGel.

Ryan   Racer [Jul 25, 2003]
Strength:

thiner than gu. Better taste than gu.

Weakness:

doesn't seem to work as fast as gu.

This product does what it says, but it dosen't seem to kick in for about 10 mins even with water. Gu is a little thicker but kicks in in about 2 mins with water. If you don't like one product or you want to see what else is avalible try Gu or Clif Shot. If you are actually in a race taking one every half hour will aid in a quicker recovery time.
Well I hope this helps.

Strength:

taste, energy kick, value

Weakness:

toothpaste tube design not a good idea

Call me weird, but I could almost eat the Real Berry flavor at home watching TV. It's relly good. I'm not hot on the other flavors. You get a noticeable energy boost that lasts a reasonable length of time. There is more product per tube compared to Power Gel. The tube container would be OK if they just did'nt put the flip top on it. You're gonna just suck it down anyway, not serve it on hors'dveurs. Overall a really good product.
