Energy Gums anyone?

Postby jvarholak » Fri Nov 05, 2010 11:51 pm

With gels, shot blocks, etc. being popular for quick, on the move use, has anyone ever tried the energy gums that are available? I've read on this and other forums that some folks dig redbull and the like (makes me a bit jittery so I try to avoid those and i hate the crash after). Any feedback on gums, good or bad, would be appreciated.
thanks,
john

understood but I was thinking that the gums could, potentially, help with dry mouth (for us occasional mouth breathers) for a decent length of time.

Well, there's always Jolt Gum, if all you're looking for is some caffeine to give you a boost. I've never used it for climbing/hiking, only to ward off the drowsies when driving. Prefer ShotBlox, personally. They remind me of JuJuBees.
