As a keen cyclist and walker I`ve tried several `energy` bars and drinks. Whilst they provided a necessary boost to a flagging body they were too often less than a boost for the spirit. How something tastes is always important. These Alpen bars fit the bill perfectly. Thanks to the window in the wrapper you can see what you are getting. The bars are simply full of nuts with whole oats, wheat and glucoe to bind it all together. Unwrap it and taste. The texture seems just right-chewy without being sticky and because it`s made by Alpen all the ingredients are first class. These bars are a great little snack. They seem to be just the right size for filling a hunger gap.
