This new flavour of High5 EnergyBar goes down well on long rides. Each bar contains a decent 269kcal from 31g carbohydrate, 8g protein and 13g fat. That breakdown illustrates that this isn’t a snack you want to wolf down before a short, sharp interval session, but for a steady release of energy it’s great.

The flavour is as much of dried fruit as it is peanuts, and the texture is moist and easygoing. It’s not something you’d be tempted to eat outside of training but the pack opens quickly, the bar goes down easily and it doesn’t fall apart if left half-eaten in your back pocket.
