Thanks for any feedback.
OK, so after doing a half-century yesterday with GU20 drinks, here is my 2 cents worth:
best flavor: lemon-lime, rasberry - drinkable, but not so delicious you'll be stocking up on it to drink while you watch TV at home.
didn't care for: orange (didn't like it), tango-mango (liked it even less than orange)
Those were the flavors I tried so far. I'd suggest to check for the single use packets, which is what I found. Admittedly, they cost more, but at $1 to fill up one 24 oz bottle, at least you're not stuck with a pound cannister of something you can't stand to drink.
On a related note, they had some flavor of Hammer Gel drink product at the aid stations. The sign said it was lemon-lime, but it didn't taste like that. It had a citrus flavor and a sort of powdered milk flavor together, and it was really yucky to my palate.
As always, your mileage will vary, so I'd just go try anything you can mooch from a pal or find in single serve packets and make up your mind.
