Product Review: Powerbar Gel Blasts

A few weeks ago I saw something new in my Burnet race packet, powerbar gel blasts. I'd seen a few people buying them and was curious to see what they were like. My quick glance at the packaging made me believe there might be something banana tasting inside.

I opened the package, tossed one in my mouth, and spit it out as fast as I could. Yuck! Coke flavored gummy.

Personally, I'm more of a fruit and vegtable type of girl. I'm probably one of the few people who craves wheatgrass shots after a long ride. But that is a whole other discussion.

Back to the bites... you may wonder why I'd write about something I am repulsed by. Reason is, Michael loves those dang things. He's one of the pickiest eaters I've ever seen on the bike but somehow he managed to keep those things down this past weekend. Not only that, he had his first ride ever where he didn't slow down during a 5hr ride and even had energy left to do a 45 min transition run. I'm considering sending those gel blasts to a lab, I think there must be something magical in them.

So for all of you soda lovers, you might want to try these Gel Blasts. For all of you fruit and vegtable types, I'll be giving you some ideas next week ;)

P.S. Michael asks that you don't make any comments on his need for a haircut, he's been busy at work.

I'm with Michael - I love the gel blasts. I like the lemon flavor more though.

I LOVE THE COLA! It's like those little gummy cola bottle shaped candies.
