    How do you expect some else to tell you what tastes good? Would like me to tell you your favorite color too?

    You use the product your stomach tolerates. Taste is worthless if the product makes your puke. In short, try all of them.

    Muscle Milk - Graham Cracker or Mocha Walnut. I keep a mini-flask or two in my pack on long rides.
    I like Sand - I don't like Witches.

    I prefer the taste of the Hammer gels over any of the others. They seem to agree with my stomach better as well. I'm partial to the tropical flavor.

    Out of all the flavors of Hammer that I have tried, I found Tropical to have a nasty metallic aftertaste.

    Huge fan of the Rasberry and Apple Cinimon....with Vanilla a close 3rd.

    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    prefer Honey Stingers. Tried a few different flavors, vanilla and fruit smoothie are my favorite. The hint of honey in them IMO a lot better then the "artificial" sweet taste of other brands. i have tried Gu, Hammer, and Powerbar versions. some flavors I enjoyed, others.......well I am glad I had a water bottle.

    Only suggestion is buy different brands/flavors and note which one you prefer.
