Pulsin Energy Bomb! £1.59

Gluten free energy bar

BikeRadar score 3/5

This gluten free veggie nugget is designed to kickstart your workout or raise your game in the final furlong, with a hit of ginseng, green tea and guarana. It certainly seems to work too, properly pepping us up even at the end of the dreaded first week back to work and serious training after Christmas. 

The mix of fruit, rice malt and whey protein means release is more restrained so you’re not eating an energy hand grenade either. Not everyone is tolerant of the obvious buzz of stimulants in a sports context though. 

Saturated fat and fibre levels are high too and they’re not cheap. That does pay for eco-electric, locally prioritised production values though.
