Review: Huma Chia Energy Gels

Huma Chia Energy Gels

Huma Chia Energy Gels are the best energy food I’ve found.  I used Gu for a long time, but only liked one flavor and found them hard to swallow because they are so thick.  I also tried the Gu chews, but have a hard time chewing, swallowing and running/biking.

In the last year I have been trying to minimize processed foods and chemicals, so began looking around for a healthier alternative as my workout lengthened.   I tried UnTapped Maple Waffles, but found them yummy but too crumbly for me.   A little more research led me to all-natural Huma Chia Energy Gels.

The consistency is pleasant and easy to swallow.  I’ve tried all the flavors and enjoyed them, even the non-fruit flavors which I generally don’t like.   I also like the fact the gels are “all-natural” and that the company is a start-up imagined by a U.S. Army veteran.
