GU Energy Chews Double-Serv Packet: BLUEBERRY POMEGRANATE Flavour
Blueberry Pomegranate blends two unique berry essences into one smooth flavor. (Fun fact: Pomegranates are technically berries!) Called Blue Pom for short, it is sweet, floral, and fruity. Tastes like a favorite gummy candy, works like an Energy Chew. (Love this flavor? Try our Blueberry Pomegranate ROCTANE Energy Gel!)
GU Energy Chews pack energy-dense calories in a portable packet to help sustain energy demands of long duration activities. The 80-calorie serving (two servings per packet) contains carbohydrates to keep you fueled while delaying bonking by sparing your glycogen stores. Sodium, the primary electrolyte lost in sweat, aids in hydration by maintaining water balance. The branched-chain amino acids (leucine, valine, isoleucine) may reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage.

GU Energy Chews - Blueberry Pomegranate (No caffeine)
GU Energy Chews - Strawberry (Caffeine)
ELECTROLYTES Maintain water balance and aid in optimum hydration. CARBOHYDRATES Deliver ready-to-use energy and delay bonking by sparing glycogen. AMINO ACIDS Reduce mental fatigue and decrease muscle damage. CAFFEINE Enhances performance by increasing focus and concentration and decreasing perceived effort during exercise.
Consume one packet 5 minutes before, and one packet every 45 minutes during activity. 1 packet of Chews contains 1 serving, or 4 chews, which will provide enough fuel for 30 to 45 minutes. That said, all athletes are different and we encourage you to experiment with what works best for you. Since Chews are semi-solid it will take a little longer than with a gel for your body to feel the effects. The nutritional benefit of Chews should hit your bloodstream within 10-15 minutes.
SHOULD I USE GU ENERGY CHEWS INSTEAD OF GU ENERGY GELS?
We still insist that GU Energy Gel (and Roctane Energy Gel) is the ideal source of fuel for an athlete while training or racing, but just in case you crave something to sink your teeth into, we’ve created GU Energy Chews. Chews contain all the benefits of GU Energy Gel, in a chewable form.
DO GU ENERGY CHEWS HAVE CAFFEINE?
The Strawberry and Black Cherry flavors have 20mg of caffeine per serving, and Raspberry has 40mg, while Blueberry Pomegranate, Orange, and Watermelon are caffeine free.
