In a jam
One day, I was in a jam. I needed some food energy for the ride home, but alas, had nothing. Not even hapence for a little snack.
(And I didn't have any money, either.)
I sat there wondering what I could do...in a jam...jam...jam...
I grabbed a handful of Smucker's and off I went! They were a little sticky, but if you suck hard and lick, they're delicious, and power-packed!
Hey, I'm serious--if you are ever in a jam, try REAL JAM!
Just out of curiosity where did you get these Jam packets, are they a regular item in your commuter's knapsack?
Poor man's GU!
A study was done (Bicycling magazine I think) that compared the various GU type packs that are the current craze. Turns out Honey works about the same. Many times I eat a few tablespoons of honey before I head out on the ride. Costs less and it tastes good too!
Good idea LBM, I'm guessing you picked those packets up at a fast food restaurant, right?
I once found myself in a similar situation way out in the country and was able to eat large quantities of blackberries for the ride home. Got home OK with blue lips and teeth.
