Gorge Delights JustFruit Bars

06 May

During long rides on the country roads of southern Wisconsin I sometimes feel like I am carrying a small grocery store in my bike jersey. There are not many places to pick up food along the way and, since I am a Clydesdale, I burn around 1,000 calories an hour while cycling. On a four-hour ride I need to ingest around 1200 calories and I get easily bored with most prepackaged sports food. Last fall I found Gorge Delights JustFruit All Natural Fruit Snack Bars and these have added a bit of variety to my on-bike meals.

While cycling I have found that the fewer ingredients in a food product the easier it is for me to digest. Some carbohydrate and protein bars have so many chemicals in them it would take a degree in chemistry just to understand what is inside. The JustFruit bars by George Delights not only taste great, but, as the box claims, they are “just fruit.” Their apple-blueberry bar has just three ingredients: apple puree, apple concentrate and blueberry concentrate. You are never going to confuse these bars with the sawdust-like flavor of a PowerBar.

These bars are perfect for cyclists! The apple-blueberry bar has just 90 calories and provides 22 grams of carbohydrates. They are also wheat, dairy, nut and gluten-free. The bars have a two-year shelf life and do not need to be refrigerated.

I have purchased eight boxes of these bars from Amazon.com and the price comes out to about $1.00 a bar. You really should try a box or two of these bars—I am certain you will enjoy them on your next long ride.
