During my recent long runs, i have been trying out different energy gels/chews. I can`t stand the faffing around getting the last 20% out of the gels, whilst trying to maintain stride, so i thought i would try energy chews (shotbloks, zippfit etc.). My question is, how much do you need to chew them before swallowing? Can you swallow them whole, can you chew for a few seconds and then swallow and they still digest and give you the full shot of carbs, or do you have chew fully. Takes ages to chew fully and in the process, i end up choking because i`m trying to breath as well, or peices go flying out as i exhale. What do we think?
