  • Looking for energy bar suggestions

    I don't care how unhealthy it is........Energy. For when the "Hounds of hell" are chasing me and I have "Hit the preverbal WALL" and need instant energy. This is for the backpack.

    EDITED.........It turns out that what I am looking for is instant Glucose injection by oral delivery. Runners GEL type thing.

    One day you eat the chicken.....next day the left-over chicken.....next five days you eat chicken feathers, head and feet.

    IIRC, the UK equivalent is 'Kendal Mint Cake'. Also nice to eat / share...

      Our local EMS department orders oral glucose packets by the 100's. They taste horrible, but do save lives. I just ran a search on oral glucose and found that they sell it in pill form at your local big box pharmacy. Pills would definitely cut down on space and weight, but I wonder how much you could actually get down (and keep down) without some liquid...

          Must be nice. Growing up in the high desert I always think about water and water conservation first....I forget that other places actually have water just lying around!

            Well I mixed 3 oz. of maple syrup and 3 oz. of Vanilla flavored coffee creamer in a 12 oz. container, shook vigorously.......so that is my temporary potion, till my Amazon order of super'duper runners Gel arrives.

              Cliff & Powerbar gel shots aren't to bad. I think Gatorade also has similar energy "shots". I've used them when out working and you hit the wall, they definitely give you a burst of energy but it's not super long lived.
              I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you!
