I second this. It's what I've been consuming during my rides and I find it to be quite enjoyable. I also keep some energy gels in my jersey. Cliff Razz shots, taste like a raspberry's bung hole, but they get the job done. Though I grimace when I consume them. I found that the vanilla bean gel by GU is quite good.
