Ultra Running & Reviews


9Bar Energy Bars

by on Mar.25, 2010, under Nutrition

I’ve been getting a bit jaded with gels & bananas on my long runs & races & started looking for something new. It had to be tasty, nutritious & natural as I don’t like anything synthetic tasting or full of E numbers. I tried 9Bar for the first time a few months back on the 85 mile Ridgeway ultra challenge when a friend was using them & gave me some to try, I was hooked! They taste great & are full of carbohydrates & natural seeds plus 20 amino acids including the 9 essentials. They are also dairy free, which is great if you have any stomach problems with dairy. They also contain pure cane sugar and honey which can stop blood sugars from getting too low. If you get tired of the original flavour they also come in organic, flax, pumpkin & nutty. I always keep a couple in my kit bag for between gym sessions just to keep me going & use them on all my ultra runs.
