Hammer Gel. I've only used Raspberry and Espresso, both good flavors. I only buy the pint bottle and decant into their small flask. Huge advantage to the flask and in buying the large bottle. Plus it's maltodextrin rather than simple sugar, which I find works better for me.

I like the Powergels. Most of the others I've tried are too thick.

Fueling while out on a ride is different, IMO, than when riding a 112 mile non stop TT during an Ironman. I tried a bunch of gels and had no issues with any of them and then a duathlete friend had me try one of his Crank Sports e-Gel. More per packet, more electros, flavors are good, flows fast and their site has a comparison chart to other gels. When I want a caffeine boost I use Clif Shot Chocolate Cherry with 100mg. caffeine. No problem with the thickness for me.
