We review this natural choice for on-the-bike nutrition.

Get Buzzing Energy Bar
£2.49 for three

These aren’t the first ‘all natural’ energy bars to hit the market but the folks behind Get Buzzing have gone to the trouble of testing them on athletes – including triathletes. The bars increased time to exhaustion in a VO2 max test by 25 seconds and decreased perception of effort. They were tested against a ‘no bar’ group rather than against other products, though. We found them easy to eat and as good as other energy bars. There’s 31-35g of carbs per bar (depending on the flavour) and energy comes from oats, dried fruit and sugar. There’s hardly any protein in the nut-free versions but 8g of fat is pretty steep for an energy product. However their moist texture makes them easy to get down on the bike.

A good choice if you’re looking for something natural tasting on the bike.

Performance 3/5
Value 4/5
Overall 3/5
