    Boze,

    I agree on the Zone Bars. I eat the non chocholate ones as the chocholate ones get too messy in the AZ heat. I like to drink Poweraide.

    Energy bar - None. They all taste like cr@p. I've switched to Fig Newtons.
    Energy drink - Gatorade, I guess. The powdered stuff in the large size from Costco or some place like that ends up being pretty cheap.

    Bar - Clif (was Balance, was PowerBar before that). But not all of 'em; that Lemon Poppyseed (or whatever) is downright nasty. Peanut Butter, Black Cherry, Cookies-n-Cream, ... mmm good (better than others but won't confuse them with a Snickers bar).

    When thoroughly tired of Clif Bars, out come the Fig Newtons ... or the other "Newtons" (apple, strawberry, raspberry). One nice thing about them is that if they "crumble", you can smash back together (in the ziploc) and then eat 'em.

    Need LOTS of water to wash either of these down, but at least I'll eat it. Bringing the "bar" back to the car doesn't do you any good.
    Best.

    I'm starting to wonder if maybe this young cyclist has the right idea.

    Stephen continued: he wanted to go to Portland to visit his father, but he knew Portland was a long ways away, which is why he set out so early in the morning. He also knew it would take a ``lot of energy'' to bicycle to Portland, which is why he wanted to buy a pizza.
    Maybe I could use these tips for next years Seattle to Portland ride.

    If "you are what you eat" then, Does that make you Corn Syrup??

    Well, I really only like... well at least I prefer... the Chocolate Fudgy and the Peanut Butter ones so I'm guessing I'm dehydrated cane juice.

    Clif Bars are my favorite bars, but when I'm training I eat fig newtons, bananas, and Pop Tarts. Bars are for racing.

    Clif bars, though not all the flavors. Bananas are always good, and the odd PB&J.

    Has anyone here had a bar called Promax? My track buddy had one for lunch today and he gave me a piece. It was actually pretty good, the inside was like the stuff inside a 3musketeers bar except a bit chewy. I didn't see the ingredient label so I don't know how good this bar actually is(nutritionally).


    BTW, he got it at Trader Joe's.

    Clif Bars- 'cause their vegan, and I'm addicted to the lemon poppyseed.

    For liquid energy, a nice local IPA or Amber does the trick

    It ain't a bar, but my vote is Candy Corn!

    And Gatorade to drink.

    Wow. A lot of Clif Bar fans in here. Has anyone tried the Snickers Marathon bars? They are pretty good, I've been hooked on those.

    There was a discussion on this a while ago and the general concensus was that it's an overpriced candy bar.
