Easy to break down and digest on the move I give these bars an A+++. I use them pretty much doing anything with endurance. I like the consistency better than Gu or power gel, but alas those are so compact and easy to digest you can't not. I still use these though, and they have the caloric density that the gels don't. Within 5-10 minutes you start metabolizing this bar so it is quick energy you need on the go. Highly recommended and wow do they have so many more flavors than they use to.
