    Nah, I'll ride. I have my assortment of energy/granola, and I could make PB&J.

    I just like the gels. They work better for me. And it is just annoying in general to have purchased some big shots when they were cheap on sale and now they seem to be lost. So much for saving a few bucks.

    Hopefully they will turn up somewhere. Worst case is I will stop by the LBS and grab a few. Maybe I will get lucky and they will have some on sale.

    I know what you mean. My son ate 3 of my powerbars last week thinking they were candy bars.

    regular ol honey is a suprisingly close match to a lot of the gels. Could try that.

    Honey is pretty much pure sucrose, iirc.
