    PowerBar Chocolate Gel or CLIF Shot Bloks

    I'm starting to use energy gels and electrolyte stuff, you know; nuclear waste. Anyways, what's better, out of experience, PowerBar Chocolate Gel or CLIF Bloks. I've tried the Chocolate Gel before and thought it was great but not the Shot Bloks.

    i love the shot bloks. they're like eating gummi worms on a bike ride. brilliant.

    haven't tried chocolate gel though....and doubt i'd like it, because i don't like chocolate in general.

    I've used the chocolate gel back when I used to run cross country. I liked it quite a bit as far as taste goes but would never use it for long days of practice, just right before a meet for a quick energy boost during a 5k. Never used the Cliff bloks though...

    Try the new Gu Chomps. Pomegranite and Strawberry are exceptional flavors.

    The most authentic "chocolate" tasting is Gu Chocolate Gels. Think Chocolate pudding!

    The hammer gel flavor apple cinnamon are tasty. Haven't tried the clif bloks but their bars are great so I imagine the bloks would be too.
