Review USN - Honey Energy Bar

The nice people at USN sent me some of there new energy bars to try out and they tasted great. Just lie the other sporting products produced by USN.

First thoughts are does it fit in my cycle bento box and second how does it taste and third how hard is it to open on the run/bike.

You can quite comfortable fit in three bars in the bento box and there is still room for gels which is great, my taste test is does it taste like an energy bar, and does it look like a energy bar, both answers "NO" there is no chemical taste or over sweet so its easy to digest and swallow without the need to gag or drink half of your hydration to get the bar down. I did find the bars a little sticky but nothing to worry about.

All in all a great bar to have on the go and something that can be eaten pre and during workout. Its not to heavy on the stomach and it wont repeat on you while training.

The Energy bar comes in two options Honey, Seeds & Nuts and the other is Protein, Seeds & Nuts.

The Honey bar has the following:

  • 3.2g of Fibre
  • 7.2g of Protein
The Protein bar has the following:
  • 14g of Protein
  • 3.3g of Fibre
  • 25g Carbs
You can purchase the bars HERE

If you are after a great tasting bar which is easy to use and digest then look no further than the new USN range of energy bars. This will be another product I will be adding to training and race day supplements.

Thanks USN
