Recommened Usage

Eat 1 bar 30-60 minutes before event or training followed by a further 1-2 bars/hour during.

Carbohydrate before and during exercise increases energy availability and supports your immune system, with protein preserving lean muscle. A mix of sugars like the glucose and fructose found in MuleBar ensures increased energy absorption and improved endurance. Added to this, the mix of High, Medium and Low GI ingredients provides gradual energy release.

Tapering your training or trying carbohydrate loading? Try using a MuleBar as your mid morning and mid afternoon snack in the 36-48 hrs before your event. The idea is to super saturate your muscles energy stores and improve your endurance!

Press Reviews

Cyclo

An energy bar with impeccable organic and Fairtrade credentials, an energy bar highly rated by top athletes (including many Tour de France riders), an energy bar that tastes great. Most manufacturers would rest on their laurels if they could tick just one of those, not so Mulebar who seem determined to go the extra distance on all counts. So how do the MuleBar Energy Bars stack up?

Variety is key when it comes to getting adequate nutrition on the ride and MuleBar offers a choice of seven unusual flavours: Liquorice Allsports, Pinacolada, Mango Tango, Summer Pudding, Apple Strudel, Hunza Nut and Jimmy’s Choc Orange – intriguing, no? We found all but the Liquorice Allsports both tasty and true to description (different strokes, etc. and you may well love the Allsports too), and crucially, so as to avoid hydration issues, the bars are moist and easily digested without recourse to the bidon.

Not only do these taste like real food, they’re made from it too and the company is committed to introducing further organic and Fairtrade ingredients as they become available – want more ‘green’ credentials? Some of the wrappers are decompostable (and more will be soon) and the company is signed up to the ‘1% For the Planet’ scheme where 1% of sales goes to a network of more than 3000 approved environmental organisations worldwide. Nice to know that something fuelling your ride is also helping protect the planet.

Nutritional values natural fluctuate between flavours but to take Summer Pudding (our flat-out favourite) as a fairly typical example a 56g bar serves up: 187Kcal, 38g of carbs (29g of which are sugars – most of which from the fruit ingredients), just 3g of fat – 0.4g saturates – and 3g of fibre for good measure.

There is, of course, a growing move towards all things natural – even organic – but MuleBar are far ahead of the game when it comes to variety and taste. Summer Pudding will fuel us through the next few months and when the weather changes we’ll gladly switch to Hunza Nut. Or Apple Strudel. Or Mango Tango. Or…

Borrowing the phrase 'melts in your mouth, not in your hand', Mule claim to offer a 'real food' snack made from natural and organic ingredients, which are easily and rapidly digested. These include rice syrup, raisins, mixed fruit peel and rice crisps. Each 56g bar supplies 38.6g of carbohydrate, of which two thirds come from simple sugars and the remaining third from complex carbs. Fat content is low, while the natural fibre content is high at 4.8g per 100g. The chocolate orange flavour comes from real cocoa and natural orange flavour, while a minimum of 1% of sales goes to environmental organisations. The bar is moist, with a succulent consistency combined with the crispiness of the rice crisps. Unlike a lot of chocolate-flavoured products it's light on the tummy, but the high asing price of £17.99 for 12 (£1.50 per 56g bar) means there's tough competition from cheaper bars. Comes in a wide range of interesting flavours, from apple strudel to pinacolada.

Another slightly awkward to open bar thanks to a tight, sticky wrapper, but at least the Mule bar’s tricky packaging is compostable if you bring it home (or it accidentally blows away). A high proportion of the ingredients are organic and/or Fairtrade too, so it’s a low-guilt gobfull. A high percentage of starch syrups and fruit mean it packs a rapid energy delivery, chews down quickly and, for once, the wide range of flavours are as appetising as they sound. That does mean potential to trigger an energy spike if you get greedy but pack size is slightly smaller than average which helps steady snacking, if not relative value.

Verdict - Very tasty, fast-acting fruit based bar, but awkward to open and high price. Performance 4/5, Value 2/5, Overall 3/5.

MuleBar Strudel - Real apples organically grown in orchards approved by the soil association. We love there are so few ingredients. Tastes great, with both fast and slow release energy.

Whereas some energy products can taste a bit bland, there is absolutely nothing subtle about these bars. Even more outrageous are the Pinacolada and Liquorice Allsports varieties.

Mule bars are smooth and slightly chewy. They’re not crumbly at all and they don’t fall apart as you get them out the packet (important if you’re eating on the bike). Summer Pudding is fruity and sweet, as you might expect. Mango Tango is still fruity, but surprisingly not so sweet.

Verdict - Mule Bars are well worth trying. They’re very tasty, easy to eat, and provide a good energy boost - and the natural ingredients might be a definite benefit if you get stomach trouble from other energy products.

MuleBar Hunza Nut - Here is a bar with ingredients you can recognise. A mixture of dried fruit, oats and nuts provides a lot of carbohydrate, and the low fat content means this bar would be quickly digested. It's soft and easy to eat. Not as sticky as pure apricots, not as dry as oats. The makers characterise it as 'fuel for adventure'. The sugars (from rice syrup and apricots) will be absorbed rapidly and starchy carbohydrate (from oatmeal and oats) will provide a sustained flow of sugars into the bloodstream.

Verdict - The good quality ingredients and absence of unnecessary preservatives or colourings make this a bar you could eat as a regular pre-ride snack, or to keep you going on a long ride.

Mule Bars were developed by a guy who wasn’t impressed with the selection of energy bars available. He started making his own in the kitchen and after feedback from friends has now got what is probably the tastiest bar on the market.

Mule now has a selection of six different flavours. The bars are wrapped in a loose package that is easy to open and get the bar out of while on the move. The consistency of the Mule Bar is neither too hard to bite off or too soft that they break and fall apart. Even in sub-zero temperatures the bars were easily chewable. Mule flavours are distinctive yet not overpowering and do not have any aftertaste.

Pros - Tasty, Easy to get out of wrapper, Good consistency, Easy to chew, even in freezing weather. Cons - None – yum!

Verdict - The Mule Bar is a little pricey for training at around £1.30 a bar, but for racing they are far superior in both taste and operation to the competition

So good... Great tasting original flavours - Mango Tango is the highlight. The texture is pleasant and all the variations are really palatable. The energy content is good and the saturated fat percentage is usually low at just 1-2 per cent - the exception being the tasty Pinacolada flavour which has 7 per cent. For your consciene's sake they're also natural, use organic fairtrade ingredients wherever possible and 1 per cent of the annual sales go to environmental organisations.

No good... They're a little more expensive than the others on test.

What's this? Energy bars your wouldn't mind serving up on Masterchef? No, not really, but they are genuinely tasty - we had to reorder these because the first lot were devoured en route to the photographer's. They're Fairtrade, contain weird and wonderful things like shelled hemp seeds and puffed quinoa and come in a range of natty flavours including pina colada (seriously) and boiled ham (not seriously).

In one: Great snacklet for epic rides.

Jim in the office made it his duty to munch down these bars like a gannet, almost before they left the envelope. His verdict was simple - they taste good and the fill the hunger gap, Made from 100% natural ingredients.

Using 100 per cent natural ingredients, plus organic and Fairtrade ingredients where possible, MuleBars come in four flavours: Mango Tango, HUnza Nut, Pinacolada and Chocolate Fig Fiesta. Nutrition-wise, they're comparable with other energy bars on the market, but without the nasty additives. The mango flavour packs the highest energy count, delivering 371 calories per 100g.

Verdict: Absolutely brilliant. Every flavour is a winner, the consistency and taste are great, and they are packed full of energy. The best thing to come out of Wiltshire since Billie Piper.
