Lucozade Carbo Gels
Has anyone tried the new lucozade Carbo gels? Are they any good!!!! If so where do you get them from, I have been trying to buy some but don't seem to be able to find where from!?!?!?
First I've heard of them.
I'll have look round for them tho'..
All the best,
Got mine yesterday in a large boots store, price 99p each, i think they taste very nice, only downside is that they are a bugger to open, I cant seem to open them with my fingers and having to use teeth, which i found hard today while doing a hard run.
I will continue to use them though.
I have been looking in Boots stores.
Which one did you get them from?
Boots in L'pool and Peterborough have them -From recent experience you need to start eating them fairly early on in a long run and keep topped up. I've actually found them one of the easiest gels to open, even with gloves on. They are also fairly palatable compared to some.
I must have a dodgy batch with the trying to rip open the tops.
Got mine in thr Bromley branch, which is in the Glades shopping centre
Thanks for the Info. I will visit the glades tomorrow.
lucozade, powerbar, high5, science in sport and shark. which is best? on grounds of

I use Squezzy as you can fit 2 in the key pocket of your shorts or tracksters. The top rips of easy with your teeth. Never had a problem with digestion and they all taste as bad as each other. Buy a box of 10 from a running shop and they work out at 79p each.
I am no expert but it works for me usualy have the first one at about 10 k and the next one half way between there and the end of the run.
