I love these for a burst of energy on my mountain biking outings. But I have ordered from the company directly and they aren't fresh. The first ones I ever had were the perfect consistency (from a bike shop), so far all the others I have gotten have been hard & stale. I still use them, but I wish they were consistent in freshness.
I had bought a single pack of these to try on a hike. The following day I went on ProBar.com to order a few *cases.* These are DELICIOUS, didn't melt into each other, and gave me a boost on the hiking trail. Cannot wait for my next excuse to eat some.
I really like having these energy gels on my bike rides. When the weather is hot your need carbs to fuel up your body and these work for me. They taste great and pack well.
I always keep a pack of the Bolt energy chews in my pack for mountain biking. After mile 15, I usually need more energy and these energy chews are perfect. The pink lemonade is really flavorful and not too sweet.
I bought some of these for my wife who is an avid golfer and she uses them regularly to help provide an energy boost during the "back nine". After her positive initial reaction, I snuck some to use during long bike rides and they seem to provide a quick bit of energy to get you back to the car or push on for a few extra miles. Ended up having to order a couple flavors for me after the initial success. They don't melt, taste good and are packaged well for just about any activity. I'd say to try 'em, you'll like 'em !!
I love these things. Every flavor is delicious. These are perfect on my bike rides for some calories and everything my body needs.
Its been a long week of training and I tried these bolt chews today.. not sure if it was the chews or just one of those days, but I had a great ride!! These taste great and no gut issues.
