A tasty energy kick
I work at a local family owned outdoors store and we carry many energy/powerbar related supplements, the newest is Jelly Belly's "SPORT BEANS" they have sodium, carbs, electrolytes and many other things to keep you going. I have been using them and i really like them, i highly reccomend trying them. 4 flavors, fruit punch, blue rasberry, lemon lime and orange.
Faster but still slow
Nice marketing for something that is basically just a chewy ball of sugar.
They taste good. Like candy. Which is what they are, with a couple additives. I'd go for a higher quality carb. Unless you just want some candy.
