Personally I do not have much of a sweet tooth. I do not like really sweet candies, cakes, pies, etc. If they are really sweet one bite is good enough for me. My only downfall is ice-cream. I can resist all other sweets in the house but ice cream is forbidden. I would rather pay the extra money to go to the ice-cream parlor than to have it in the house.
This lack of enjoying sweets is hard when you are endurance training. All the supplements we take are primarily nothing but pure sugar and have a strange gel like texture. After about my second GU I feel nauseous therefore I avoid taking them when I know I should be. The texture and the sweetness are to much for me.
After some time and searching I found a solution. The Honey Stinger Waffle! These waffles are great. They are waffle thin so they do can stack them side-by-side in your bikes stem bag. They have a great texture and are only mildly sweet because they are made with honey. They are also certified organic for you yoga type people. The ingredients are easily identifiable and are not something I made in my college organic chemistry lab.
This things taste great. I would love to have them with a small latte or some espresso. I could eat them all day long. My only complaint is they are a little pricey at $1.30 US each. But in comparison that is still about the normal price of a GU.
I highly recommend you try these. I do not think you will be disappointed.
