Lucozade Sport Carbo Gels 79p @ Sainsburys

OK a pretty niche deal this one. Not going to get as hot as an Ipad deal or a computing deal, but hopefully it might help someone out.

Went in to stock up on these for my up coming run in the London Marathon. Were £1 each just last week, now down to 79p. Makes them cheaper than Lucozades' online store which was the previous cheapest price @ £21 for 24.

As I say probably won't get very hot, but worth it if it helps at least 1 other person.

I use the SIS gels as the lucozade ones give me the squirts which isn't much fun when you're running! The lucozade ones are cheaper though and if they don't disagree with your stomach are just as effective.

Damn, about 40g sugars per tube! That will cause a mega insulin spike.
#7
I find these difficult to take, they are too thick, especially when you are 18 miles into a marathon. I prefer the SiS ones which are much thinner and you don't need to take them with a drink. Yes they are more expensive but I like them better. No vote.

Sorry, but where do you get 40g of sugar per tube?
#9
I'm sure these are 69p in Tesco!
#10
these are 64p in TESCOs

What a waste of money, just use sugar mixed in water and even then you should only really use this unless you are a elite marathan runner or perform any other heavy glycogen depletion exercise and need quick refuelment, other than that, real carbs = 1000% better.

I've tried the SIS gels a couple of times now and each time my stomach feels horrible and I feel like I want to throw up, which is not good when you are already knackered and in need of a boost.

i used these when hiking, use em half way thru and get a buzz on.

dont forget to brush your teeth asap :D

I agree 100% with Vornstar13 - these taste disgusting and are so thick you need to take lots of water with them. Spend a bit more and buy a decent brand from a running store or Decathlon.

That's your own personal preference of course. I have used these for many years, and have tries various other brands (including SIS) and these in my opnion are the best. The SIS ones are too watery. Yes these are thickers but all you need is a mouthfull of water as you take it.

What a load of pish! I can only assume that you personally don't just mix sugar with water as that's pretty disgusting!

Obviuosly you don't know what you're talking about. I am doing the London marathon in April and would find it extremely difficult to finish without these, and I'm no elite runner! Anything that has the possibilty of offsetting the appearance of "the wall" is more than worth a try.
