Although I often dream of cheesy, pepperoni pizza and Five Guys, THIS is what I use to refuel myself on the runs of 5+ miles. They are chewy and sweet like a Swedish Fish, and substantial, so I don't feel like all I get are a few jelly sports beans (though those are tasty too!) There is a vendor who sells them in bulk at the local race expos, so I have stocked up for a bit, so I have no excuse but to grab and go. My favorite flavor is Cola, though the Strawberry Banana and Berry are dang yummy too. I like Shot Blox too (Margarita has extra sodium), but I am definitely an Energy Blast gal nowadays.
