My focus is ultra-marathon races so I rely heavily on the Endure and Recovery product ranges. In my races and long training runs I look forward to every time I take on nutrition and I favor the Foodbar and Chews. For me it's great to mix the flavors and textures of these products and I like having "solid" nutrition to use rather than just drinks. In my longer races I also drink Recover from my crew in the aid stations and take Trumag every four hours. In my training I take Trumag every day (twice a day during big training blocks) and use Recover after every key training session. The 32Gi products are a fantastic complement to my daily diet and indispensable during races.
