Tastes a bit like lemon lime Popsicles... With a dash of salt. Although you know you need to be drinking it when you can no longer taste the salt in it, so that's good. (Shouldn't be drinking it when you don't need it anyway cause you'll bloat like a water ballon.) can dilute it and will last even longer. We (2 cyclists) go through one of these in about 6 weeks of every day riding.

I used this after my first novice triathlon and I think it did make a difference, recovery seemed better. Only thing I'd say is try with half the measure first

Hvae been using this product for many years but have not found it at a cheaper price. If you need an energy drink then I would recoomend this.

It's the Saturday morning Spin session again. We're on a hill climb that's a mini Alpe d'Huez, the instructor is shouting "pull up on the straps; dance on the pedals". There's a puddle of sweat on either side of the bike and my heart rate monitor reads 85%. This is one of the few times that I would use GO as it's about replacing electrolytes during really sweaty sessions rather than supplying carbohydrates.

The 500ml SIS water bottles have an 8% [solution] marker for GO, which is 40 grams of GO providing 146 kcalories and 36 grams of carbohydrate. This is quite a bit short of the optimum of 60 grams of carbohydrate per hour / 1 gram of carbohydrate per kg of bodyweight. In the Saturday Spin class I use 450 to 600 kcalories in 45 minutes, or about 800 kcal/hour on a treadmill or elliptical, so whilst it replaces the electrolytes, it falls short on replacement of calories.

For me the Lemon and Lime flavour is best as it's clean in the mouth whereas the other GO flavours can be a bit sickly at 8%. It's nicer tasting than the Lucozade Sports drinks. It is quite acidic - I spilt 8% Go mix on some coins and they shone like new! - so drink some water afterwards to limit possible damage to your teeth enamel.

This product was bought for an endurance walk in Belgium and certainly did the job and kept the energy levels up. Nice flavour too.

Mixes easily, nice flavour. Contains carbs so keeps you going on a longer run, I use it as it means I don't need to use gels.

My nephew has recently started using this as a recovery aid after his sprinting. The proce was the best I found and it came really quickly, which was good for him. Will buy again once he's worked his way through this tub.

Impressed with the amount for the price that I have paid. Good energy drink that I've benefited from, overall good.
