My coach used to have us eat these before our events at the big all day swim meets. I never needed a whole pack for one event, and they always improved my performance. I used to eat the lemon lime flavor, and they tasted great even though I hate jelly beans
The taste of these is good and the price is ok too. But, I find that Gu's are much easier to take during races than the beans. You can just squeeze a Gu and go where with the beans you risk spilling them out everywhere. (Or at least I do). I didn't ever feel a quick energy burst from these either.
Gu makes me get physically sick if I use them the way they are supposed to be used....so I switched to these and am loving them! I only use these during my extensive or longer workouts however, not really sure that they are needed but they are really good!
I cannot use Gu or any other sports chews on long runs or I will have intestinal woe. I tried the Sports Beans on a few of my longer training runs and they did not upset my stomach. I took three of these at mile 8 during my half marathon and did not get an upset stomach. Plus, they just taste good.
They taste, look, and feel like jelly beans. That's all. I don't feel any extra energy, and any type of "energy booster" out there isn't as good as REAL fruits and vegetables and water. I feel more energized after a smoothie than anything that is supposed to increase my fitness performance
I like these, but I'm not sold on their ability to give you energy. I think that the electrolytes in them make me feel less dehydrated when exercising, but I don't feel any more energized. I like how they taste, but they're a little sticky and you have to eat the entire bag to see any results, which can be annoying. My advice would be to buy 1 bag and try them before investing in a bunch of them.
I like having a bag of these while hiking or backpacking to supplement other snacks. They have a nice flavor and chewiness to them that can be refreshing after a few miles of exploration. I'm not sure that I've ever noticed a big burst of energy with them, but they've been enjoyable.
These are so delicious, I could eat them by the pound. I find even eating the recommended amount (one bag) is too much. I stick with water for the first four miles of my run, then I pop about four beans. It's just enough to keep me going!
I usually have Gu before my runs (the mint chocolate is like eating a fricken' thin mint, YUM) but I wanted to try these. It's like eating candy! I like them better than the Gu because they have sodium, and they are really tasty.
I took these along with me on my second half marathon. They were easy to use while I ran. I liked that it felt like I was actually eating something and not just goo.
Q & A
Do you eat these before or after you exercise?
Do you feel energized after eating these beans?
Are these good to use during a long run?
So these are basically just sugar drops? How is that good for you while exercising?
Oop...that was a question...I would definitely give these a try...where can I get some to give them a try? do they really give you energy?
