Flavours in the Box include -
Strawberry Banana required the utmost precision to create the perfect balance, because too much banana flavour can dominate other flavours. The mellow banana notes upfront is blended with a zip of strawberry flavour, which delivers a taste just like a perfect smoothie.
Chocolate Outrage was one of the four original Energy Gel flavours back in 1993, and it remains a favourite to this day. Crafted with organic dark chocolate, this flavour satisfies any cocoa craving. The chocolate taste is rich, sweet, and fudge-like...full of flavour but simple enough that you can enjoy it day after day.
Vanilla Bean is an iconic flavour to the GU Energy Labs family. It’s made with vanilla extract from real vanilla beans. Sweet, smooth, rich and creamy, Vanilla Bean is a classic flavour that just gets the job done… mile after mile after mile.
If there’s a flavour that’s perfect for Energy Gels, it’s Salted Caramel. The indulgent, sweet caramel taste melts in your mouth, only to be complemented by just enough salt to keep things interesting. With the same consistency as caramel, we won’t judge if you use it to top your next ice cream sundae.
As any berry connoisseur knows, the taste of a blackberry varies throughout the season. The taste of Jet Blackberry is like that mid-summer berry: ripe enough to deliver unmatched sweetness while still bringing out a touch of tart. It won’t make your mouth pucker, but it keeps things interesting. This flavour also packs 40mg of caffeine – to help you turn on the jets, of course.
Tri-Berry is as smooth as a berry flavour can be… a trifecta of berries for a sweet, rich and ripe flavour. Slight floral notes add depth and another dimension to this otherwise smooth flavour. This tried and true flavour is a favourite among GU fans.
