Hello all. It’s been a while since my last review but good news, I’m still here and I’m back with another one.
Today’s review is Gu Toasted Marshmallow. This is a new Gu flavor where they partnered with running shoe brand Hoka One One during the launch of their Clifton 4 running shoes, so that’s why there’s that little Hoka Marshmallow person on the package. Now I should note that unlike most of my gel reviews, I did not get to try this one before a workout.
Similarly to most Gu’s the texture on this one was really no different than any of the other “standard” Gu’s. It had the normal gel like consistency that was maybe a touch too thick for my liking, at least for during a race.
The flavor, however, was very surprising. I thought to myself “how much like a marshmallow can this gu actually taste?” Well apparently it can taste a lot like a marshmallow. I was pleasantly surprised with this flavor, definitely a stand out among some of the other flavors that I have recently tried. It actually tastes a lot like that Marshmallow fluff that you buy in jars, which I happen to love. So good job Gu, you really nailed it with this one. 9/10.
