    I came acros a Item thats new to me but may not be new to you... Gu!

Taste is not bad some flavors are a little off i have tried the Orange and lemon lime which are not too far off...

    I'd add 2-3 to a BOB or medic kit for when you need that extra energy....

    I used to make a far superior type of energy gel back in the day for myself.
    All you need to do is buy some Coughlan's squeeze tubes. Mix your own gel, I used organic blackstrap molasses and brown rice syrup as well as honey a lot.

    Just a thought, if you're going to keep these in your BOB, you might want to keep them sealed in a ziploc bag or something, especially if your BOB gets tossed around a lot. I'd hate to open my bag and find the contents covered in Gu because one of the pouches busted open...
