Not the best caramel, but still good
www.insulindependence.org dawn phenom event. Where we currently are running a solid 8 miles and I like to have something to keep the bg's in a good place during the run. Last time I had the mandarin orange flavor which was to die for but at the ADA 5k all they were giving out were caramel flavor. The funny thing with anything caramel flavored is it can be too sweet or to chemically tasting. This was a little bit on the chemical after taste. Not that the flavor was horrible but I would rather have something more natural tasting if I were to be picky with my low bg supplements. Since these were used as a running additive I would say they are probably a 3 out of 5 syringes on my patented diabetes camper scale. The consistency is great for running, unlike the brand "GU" which is way to thick and alot of other gels have odd flavors and still are a bit thicker than this stuff is. I still liked having these along rather than a normal person's gel but still like the mandarin orange flavor the best.
