Press Reviews

Triathlon Plus

This new flavour of High5 EnergyBar goes down well on long rides. Each bar contains a decent 269kcal from 31g carbohydrate, 8g protein and 13g fat. That breakdown illustrates that this isn’t a snack you want to wolf down before a short, sharp interval session, but for a steady release of energy it’s great.

The flavour is as much of dried fruit as it is peanuts, and the texture is moist and easygoing. It’s not something you’d be tempted to eat outside of training but the pack opens quickly, the bar goes down easily and it doesn’t fall apart if left half-eaten in your back pocket.

Verdict - A simple, slow-release energy bar that’s great for taking on long rides

220 Triathlon

Rather like the SiS GO bar, high5's Energy Bar is formulated with a mixture of pure fruits and cereal (oats, rice flour and puffed rice), providing both simple and complex carbohydrates. Indeed, the fruit content is high enough for each bar to count as one of your 'five-a-day'. Each 60g bar delivers 42g of carbs with just over half coming from sugars and remainder from complex carbs. Fat content is low at 4.2g per 100g and the majority of this comes from a type of coconut oil, which is rich in MCTs - special oils that are easily converted to energy. When it comes to taste, the EnergyBar is a bit more 'doughy', with a rather smoother texture than some tested here. But this doesn't detract, as its consistency is moist and easy to chew. Even better, the taste is genuinely fruity with the perfect amount of sweetness and a strong taste of berries. At £29.75 for a box of 25 it's also competitively priced. Other flavours available include peanut, coconut and banana.

Runner's World

This fruit-based bar is a good fast fix reviver but best nibbled steadily for a slower release. The ingredients of all four flavours are mostly dried-fruit based, bulked up with starch sugars and oats. What little fat there is comes from natural oils and it’s low in sodium. The relatively strong but not overpowering flavours are all natural with no nuts, artificial colours or sweeteners. It’s easy to open, moist enough to chew easily and temperature stable too. There’s very little protein (High5 do a separate 27% protein bar) and that’s backed up in a fair old rush of energy shortly after eating. This is great if you need a quick pick up, but generally it’s better being nibbled gradually rather than gobbling down in one.

Verdict - Easy to eat, decent value, best used when you need a fast fix of energy. Performance 3/5, Value 4/5, Overall 3/5.

The energy comes from fructose-glucose syrup, rice flour, oat flakes, fructose, sugar and fruit. Anything with fruit is preferable to chocolate-covered alternatives.

This bar combines dried fruit with oats as the main carbohydrate sources, though the taste is very different from the similarly composed Trek bar – but it's good to have a variety of snacks to enjoy on a long ride or cycle tour. The manufacturer claims this is a race proven energy bar high in energy and low in fat (for fast carbohydrate absorption). Real food made from fruit and wholesome grains, they say. It's not a not a taste sensation: a dryish, flapjack style bar. Doesn't take a lot of chewing and the flavour is subtle so good to chomp during a harder effort.
