Clif Bar’s Shot Bloks provide an alternative to gels as a means of energy replacement for endurance events and training. Coming in the form of chewable cubes in an easy to dispense pack they require no water accompaniment – making them perfect for runners and walkers who carry limited water. We have also found that a number of athletes who experienced an upset stomach with some gels do not encounter the same problem with the Shot Bloks. However, choose your flavour carefully as not all have the same level of caffiene.
WHO SHOULD BUY THIS: When gels aren’t your thing.
WHO SHOULDN’T BUY THIS: If you don’t like chewing.
WHAT WE LOVED: They work and are a nice alternative to gels.
WHAT SUCKED: We don’t love every flavour.
