After returning from my trip to Germany, I brought a few Chia bars back with me to try out on my training days. I have had a lot of problems with other bars and gels during hard workouts because my stomach is extremely sensitive. I tried them this week and the verdict is in.
The new Chia Essentials bars prove to be very efficient and easy to eat. They are the first whole seed chia bar to market, which is pretty awesome if I do say so myself. They didn't break or crumble when I shoved them in my bike's saddle bag. They were also very neat and easy to chew while on my bike. The best part is that they never bothered my stomach! I didn't get any cramps and within 15-30 minutes my energy level was back up and I was riding strong. I really enjoyed this snack and now I look forward to all my long bike rides because I know I'll get rewarded with a chia bar halfway through!
