GU Announces Three New Flavors
Caramel Apple Chew, Maple Bacon Gel and Vanilla Spice GU Roctane Gel
The Salted Caramel Apple chews sound extremely tasty and I can't wait to try them out on a ride. Not sure about the Maple Bacon, though it does sound interesting. Bacon is always a required part of any diet?
Salted Caramel Apple GU Energy Chew
Berkeley, California, July 17, 2015 – GU today announced the release of three new flavor additions to its Energy Chews, Energy Gel, and Roctane Energy Gel product lines. Salted Caramel Apple debuts as a new flavor for GU Energy Chews, joining Blueberry Pomegranate, Strawberry, Watermelon, Orange and Raspberry. Salted Caramel Apple Energy Chews provide 90 calories per packet and feature 450mg amino acids to reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage, 100mg of sodium to aid in hydration by maintaining water balance and 20mg of caffeine to increase focus.
GU Energy Chews => Created for daily training and competition, GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of long duration activities. The 90-calorie packet contains carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores.
