Many people find a benefit in using energy gels. Usually used on endurance style exercise not for your normal daily exercise. They can provide a nice boost of energy just in time to avoid burning out, or get you through to your next "wind".
Store bought energy gels tend to be high priced, lacking in variety, and full of unpronounceable ingredients. If any of those reasons bother you, make your own!
