If you didn’t catch our last story on GU Energy Gel, the latest news out of Berkeley, CA is that the famous gel has gone vegan. By removing Histidine from the standard GU formula, the gel is now officially vegan friendly which is pretty big news for a number of athletes.

For those who aren’t necessarily concerned about the vegan-ness of their gels, new flavors are probably the most exciting developments. Thanks to our newly found appreciation for how much work actually goes into developing new flavors, the frequency which GU introduces them is pretty impressive. The latest additions the line should satisfy your cravings if you’re craving fruit or chocolate on your next ride…

The new member of the standard GU gel family comes in the form of Big Apple. Tasting a bit like apple pie, the flavor isn’t overly sweet. On the Roctane side (which is not vegan), there is the amazing new sea salt chocolate. We can’t get enough of the savory/sweet gels coming out of GU lately, and this latest option is no different. Tasting exactly like it sounds, the gel joins the Roctane family for high intensity short duration, or long, endurance type events.

Standar GU packs are sold in boxes of 8 for $11.60 or boxes of 24 for $31.50, and Roctane is sold in boxes of 24 for $54. Head over to guenergy.com for complete nutritional info.
