But mainly the Lemon-Mint :wink:

Yes, SIS, those gels are one of the few I can tolerate. There are others that are ok until they get hot in my pocket and then I can't choke them down, the SIS gels stay palatable in the summer heat. Tropical is the best, I like to save those till I'm getting tired as I sometimes don't feel like eating when I know I should but those are pretty tasty (for a gel).

Agree that these gels are good in the heat. Our Australian summers get bloody hot and they are still edible after a good few hours in the Jersey pocket. With Tropical being my favourite to.
Don't like cherry in general but these taste ok, especially as they were 80% off.

I buy them in a big multi flavor pack, I don't really like the vanilla but the rest are good.

:lol: :lol: :lol: the Lemon/Mint surprised me as it was quite nice.

A Salted Caramel I tried was pretty nice too

The Double espresso is not a great espresso taste but I will admit the 150mg caffeine can be useful on certain rides after 3 hours or so.

These are my new favourite
Not as thick, sticky or sweet but with similar calories
Bonus, for me, is they are made locally
