    You might try ...

    -- bananas
    -- fig newtons (or other kinds of newtons)
    -- cereal bars
    -- granola bars
    -- Sunripe fruit bars
    -- dried fruit
    -- various packaged pastries
    -- small bag of potato chips or pretzels
    -- small bag of other nuts (almonds, cashews)
    -- bagal cut up into bite-sized pieces and placed in a baggie
    -- gels
    -- canned or powdered Ensure

    And if you still want to use energy bars, you might take a look at Peak products: http://www.peakbar.com/


    For a long ride, don't think so much about what you can carry, think instead of where you might be able to get food along the way ... restaurants, convenience stores, etc.
