I am trying to find the cheapest place to buy cycling snacks, I like the Gu plain, and pretty much any kind of bar, Thanks.

I buy them at performance when they are on sale. There's probably cheaper places though.

Your local supermarket or Walmart or Walgreens or other pharmacy will likely have them less expensive than any bicycle shop. When I used those things, that's where I got them.

I use these folks as well, they tend to have the best prices. Also this who Amazon uses so you may as well go direct.

Of course it doesn't hurt that it's Voler stuff at fraction of Voler cost.
