running goo review

For whatever reason, I'm a sucker for "performance foods" of any type. I'll try every sports drink, energy bar and goo in a tube if I think it will make me even a little bit faster. I know it's all just fancy sugar, but I like it.

Last weekend, while mountain biking, I decided to try the latest from Clif Shot, Double Espresso. I was intrigued by the promise of 100mg of caffeine (best stuff ever!). I assumed it would taste similar to Clif Shot's other coffee concoction, Mocha.

I was wrong. Oh dear, I was wrong.

Double Espresso tastes like a double espresso! It is not remotely sweet! This goop tastes exactly like a bitter cup of black coffee. I had to spit it out, and it took 20oz of gatorade to get the taste out of my mouth.

Be warned runners, even die-hard coffee addicts (myself included) should be wary of the Double Espresso Flavor. The sugary stimulant boost does not make up for the unpleasant taste.
