Fresh Goods Sunday - High 5 Sports Bar - Caramel

I am not a fan of energy drinks / foods / recovery stuff tbh. I hate gels with a passion and have had very mixed success on bars. I like some Torq bars and this flavoured High 5 sports bar. I always have one in wither my back pocket, storage bottle or top tube bag. They are an ideal size and fit in all of them perfect. Sometimes they can be there for months before I replace them as I don't tend to eat them unless I am feeling really empty or low. I cannot say they work and give me extra power, I think its in the mind. Once I have eaten one I should find enough energy to get back home. I probably eat them when its too late tbh and hasn't had enough time to release the power within lol.

RRP £1.29 and I paid £5.07 for 10no from Evans Cycles or
RRP £30 for 25no, shop around and you can get them for less than £18
