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.

+ 20mg caffeine

Chocolate Outrage was one of the four original Energy Gel flavors back in 1993, and it remains a favorite to this day. Crafted with organic dark chocolate, this flavor satisfies any cocoa craving. The chocolate taste is rich, sweet, and fudge-like...full of flavor but simple enough that you can enjoy it day after day.

+20mg caffeine

Vanilla Bean is an iconic flavor 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 flavor that just gets the job done… mile after mile after mile.

+20mg caffeine

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.

Caffeine free

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.

+20mg Caffeine

Campfire S’mores brings flavour science to new heights. Between the marshmallows, graham crackers, and chocolate, there is a lot of flavour packed into one small packet. The flavour delivers gooey, sweet, and toasty marshmallow up front and is followed by a hint of Graham cracker and a smooth chocolatey finish. One taste, and you’ll be transported back to the campfire.

Caffeine Free

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.

+40mg caffeine

Oh, Tastefully Nude… smooth and ever-so-mellow. You can call it bland, and we won’t take offense, because that’s just what it is! Crafted for athletes that don’t like frills and only wear white socks.

+20mg caffeine

When you think of oranges, what comes to mind? Sour? Juicy? Tangy? Halftime at soccer games? If your answer is “all of the above”, you’ll love Mandarin Orange. It brings out all the redeeming qualities of the refreshing citrus fruit – like the ultimate flavour wingman.

+20mg caffeine

Espresso Love is the ideal flavour for a busy athlete. This flavour will remind you of a bold, rich, dark-roasted cup of joe – so good you might just sip on the gel like it’s a lazy Saturday morning. Plus, with 40mg of caffeine, it’s perfect for those early morning workouts. Love is in the name, and it’s also in the recipe, because here at GU, one of our six core values is love.

+40mg caffeine

Mint Chocolate perfectly balances two distinct flavours without picking favourites. The initial taste brings a refreshing mint taste, only to be followed by a rich, dark chocolate. Not quite bitter, but rich enough to remind you of that classic minty chocolate candy from the top of a pillow.

+20mg caffeine

Caramel Macchiato brings out the best from two different flavour profiles combining a sweet caramel taste with the flavour of a strong, dark cup of coffee. It’s indulgent, it’s sweet, and it’s just so smooth. Caramel flavour up front and a mellow coffee taste to back it up. Imagine having a caramel candy and finishing it with a sip of creamy coffee. The 40mg of caffeine is perfect for those early morning workouts.

+40mg caffeine

A spicy and tangy way to fuel that’s reminiscent of your favourite aid station treat.

+40mg caffeine

Raspberry Lemonade Energy Gel is crafted with a favourite summertime combo of sweet & juicy raspberry topped off with delicious lemonade. 10% of sales from this flavour benefit Rising Hearts and their Running on Native Lands initiative.

Suggested Use guide

    0-1 Hours of effort

    When you're exercising for an hour or less, it's important to start your workout well-hydrated and energized. Five minutes before your activity, top off your energy stores with an Energy Gel. It's always best to take a few sips of water to help your body process your fuel.

    1-2 Hours of effort

    When you're exercising for longer than an hour, it's important to refuel along the way. Aim to eat an Energy Gel every 30-45 minutes to keep going strong, and be sure to hydrate while taking gels to help your body efficiently process your fuel.

    2-3 Hours of effort

    As you increase exercise duration, your body needs more. Supplement your Energy Gels with Energy Chews, Hydration Tabs for electrolyte replacement, or Roctane Energy Drink for energy and hydration in one.

    3+ Hours of effort

    During really long efforts, it's impossible to replace everything you're burning, but you can maximize your performance by eating as much as your body can comfortably process. Boost your BCAA consumption with Roctane Energy Gels or Roctane Drink Mix, which will help protect your muscles as you go longer.
