I've run two marathons, and I used these for my second one. I couldn't stomach the gu products, so for my first marathon I used shot bloks. The problem I found was that toward the end of a long run (or the race itself) I found it very difficult to chew such a large block, and while they tasted OK, they weren't great.
I prefer these beans because they are small and easier to chew when you've been running 3hrs or more, and eating actually becomes difficult. I genuinely like the taste of these guys too.
Like others, I struggle with the packaging. I empty them into ziplock bags.
My recommendation would be to start with gu products, since a lot of races give them out, and they may be a bit more convenient. But if that doesn't work, I'd definitely give these a try. Note some flavors have caffeine or other variations as well.
Updating 2 marathons later... still use these, although personally I can't stomach them after around mile 16 or so. But I still love the taste and use on training runs of 14 miles or more or so.

I really like these Jelly belly Sports2018年7月21日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
I really like these Jelly belly Sports. I especially like them when I am swimming laps and every ten laps I like to hydrate and chew on a couple of these beans to help the dryness in my throat after taking air in and out so hard. These seem to keep my energy up and smooth. At the gym I also eat some before my workouts. This is the best price that I have found and service is perfect.
Great flavor and gives that extra energy when you need it - but not Extreme/caffeinated, which is preferable for us anyway2017年12月18日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
Great stuff, good flavor and gives that extra burst of energy when you need it. Just a note that although the headline says "Extreme," these aren't hte caffeinated ones (which is just fine, since our son uses these for tennis and he doesn't really need the caffeine yet!).
Love these2015年8月16日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
These are great before or after my runs. They give you a nice burst of sustained energy without making you shaky or feel weird. This flavor is pretty good, a little sour, a little sweet. You can taste the added vitamins but it doesn't bother me. One packet and 3 clif shot blocks are more than enough to get me 15+ miles and be ready for more. Will keep buying for sure.

These are great. They taste good. Buying the quantity of course comes with the discount. I think the expiration on them is like a year out. They are great for energy when out there for an extended period of time. Of course, I only use them like I use Gatorade, only if I am exercising (biking, running, etc) for 2+ hours. I like them because it gives me the energy to keep going, but instead of eating something that sits in my stomach and weighs me down, these don't do this, niceeeee. They are well worth it to me. With these and Cliff Bars, I can just keep goin.
