New GU Flavor!!

One of the things I love about GU is that I never run out of a variety of flavors during an Ironman. Vanilla Bean, Espresso Love (yeah, you know I like that one!), Jet Blackberry (like Grandma's cobbler), Lemon Sublime, Tri-Berry, even holiday flavors like Chocolate Mint . . . the list goes on and on.

My friends at GU have a new flavor for us.

Take a guess as to the new flavor - or let me know what your favorite flavor is, or what flavor you wish GU made. I'll pick a random comment and send you some of the new flavor. Check back later this week for the answer!

My favorites are Jet Blackberry and Tri-Berry.

Hmmmm, Some kind of chocolate I bet, maybe watermelon, I would love to have a watermelon flavored GU someday.

strawberry cheesecake

Kim said...

mmm chocolate mint!

katymoe said...

I buy espresso love by the box! Sometimes I combine flavors too. I like to do Jet Blackberry and Vanilla together, Yum!

They should do some tart flavors, like the Pinkberry ice cream. I would love GU with a zing. :)

GoBigGreen said...

Caramel?
Bananaberry?
Creamsicle?

Wow i could write alot more like Snickers and Buttefinger but then you know I have to go to DQ now to get a blizzard. Cya:)!

Running and living said...

Angela and David Kidd said...

Cream Cheese Icing!

Michelle Oddie said...

Matt said...

IAN said...

Ohhhhh man. What Angela and David said would be AWESOME!! The chocolate mint already has the consistency of frosting. They should SOOOO do that. Please tell them. PLEASE!!

Keith said...

Finish Line Flavor!

The Sweet Taste of Success!

Tastes line teen spirit?

Love them all! Go Gu

Snakebite said...

The new flavor is "goat scrotum."

Gu always seems to give me "rumbling gut" syndrome. I'm a Hammer Gel dude.

Woodsy said...

Many people will find this gross but I think eggnog for the holidays. I'm a big fan of the eggnog latte :)

Agree that cheesecake would be yummy. On a more conventional note, I think mango would be good too.

i'm gonna guess gingerbread, but i'm gonna continue to give up the love for the espresso looooove!
^..^

Beth said...

Mmmm! Boston Creme Pie!!! Please?? ;)

m said...

My guess is cookie dough flavor.

ONEHOURIRONMAN said...

PLEASE.... PLEASE Tell me it is called "Post race Budweiser" !!!!!

Libby said...

chocolate mint is the best!!! I'm going to guess.... pina colada... lol...

Lisa G said...

Huckleberry? I tried this last weekend and it helped get me through my long ride! I'm not sure how new it is, though...

Meg said...

I vote for BIRTHDAY CAKE flavor!

Lesley said...

I wish Gu made cinnamon bun flavor, or peanut butter and jelly. :)

Mr. B said...

I hope its cheez-whiz flavored! They need some savory flavors in the mix!

Holly said...

Rumor is the flavor is Mandarin Orange..... I think they should make a Strawberry Shortcake GU.

Weezy Rider said...

I would like margarita, a little salty finish instead of the sweety sticky mouthful.

I'm also interested in the PBJ comment, that also sounds like a good flavor. But which flavor jelly? Tart Cherry? Strawberry? Grape?

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

I just tried the Espresso Love last weekend on my long ride and it was sooo good!

I'm going to guess Mandarin Orange??

Clair said...

I just discovered Jet Blackberry, and I'll never race without it again. Twice the caffeine of a regular Gu propelled me across the finish line close to 10 minutes faster than I'd expected.

Kathleen @ ForgingAhead said...

Chocolate peanut butter!

Joey Cohen said...

Tri Berry is my favorite. I'll guess . . . BLUEBERRY for the new flavor.

DaTortoise said...

I love the Expresso flavor. Kinda of reminds me enjoying a nice latte, motivating me to keep on going.

Mark Ryan said...

Espresso Love always loves me back and gives me the energy I need to get through those long runs.

I would love to see a quad venti vanilla latte flavour. Amp up the caffeine, some sweet vanilla and a strong dose of espresso.
