Sometimes you don’t want to eat your whole energy bar in one rest stop, but also don’t want to deal with a messy wrapper in your hipbelt pocket. That’s why we continually reached for these individual energy morsels, which have resealable packaging for flexible snacking.

But, with only 13 grams of sugar (in comparison, a Snickers has 20 grams) you won’t crash as hard.
