    What is your favorite energy bar for long rides or for trainning?

    I really like Quest bars. Low Calorie, 20 grams of protein, 16 grams fiber, very low sugar. The calories range from 150-200 depending on the flavor you pick.

      Well, I tried a friend's bar at my last race but it was kind of gross. But, it did have caffeine in it and that seemed to give me an extra boost. I haven't tried Quest bars yet.

        I like the ones you can buy at Decathlon. Cheap, tastes really good and has good amount of energy and protein.

            Like Steve, I usually eat real food. If not, I like Luna bars.

              I like those too, they have a pretty decent amount of protein in them. An added plus is the owner of the pharmacy across the street from where I live stocks them and sells them at the best price I have ever seen.

                I like Quest bars too as a supplement and for the nutritional value stated above. I eat one a day as a bridge meal or sometimes after dinner as a dessert. But I eat plenty of the right food as these are no substitute. Cookies and Cr?me are my favorite.

                  I have to admit, Cliff bars are probably not very wholesome but they do give me sustained energy on a long ride. I have another race coming up soon and I like to find something that might have caffeine in it. I always train in the afternoon so I have plenty of caffeine in me already but when I do a race, it is early in the morning and I don't drink coffee to minimize bladder output during race. I definitely ride better with caffeine in me.....

                      I agree Quest bars are great if you want a bar that is: tasty, high protein, high fiber, low calorie, low carb. Each bar has 15+ grams of fiber and instead of sugar uses an artificial sweetener so the net carbs in a Quest bar is usually less than 5 grams.

                      Quest bars are a little pricey, I order them by the box off amazon to save a bit. My favorite flavors are cookies and cream or chocolate chip cookie dough - but all of their flavors are pretty good and they have a ton of flavor options. They also post really cool recipes on their facebook page, you can bake their bars into treats like cookies and doughnuts

                        My Favorite bars...

                        For protein, and low carb - Quest bar (cookies and cream or chocolate chip cookie dough)

                        For balanced protein and carbs - Zone Bar (fudge graham and chocolate peanut butter)

                        For great taste and balance of fat, protein, and carbs - The next two protein/nutrition bars are sooo delicious I eat them as desserts

                        1 - Wella Bars (These are organic peanut butter and almond butter bars that are amazingly delicious, I find them at Costco)

                        2 - Lenny & Larrys Complete Cookie (This is actually a big cookie not a bar, but it is an energy cookie. It is 100% organic and vegan, and tastes amazing. It has 16G of Protein and 8G of fiber. Comes in a ton of flavors that are all delicious (yes i've tried every one) but the best flavors are lemon poppy seed and snickerdoodle.
