Gear Pick: Chimpanzee Bars

There's no denying that running gives you the munchies and it can be easy to turn to junk food when sugar cravings hit. Luckily for us hungry runners, Chimpanze have produced these all-natural energy bars to satisfy your cravings and give you bags of slow-releasing energy.

They contain no preservatives, artificial flavourings or colours and are made with 100% organic produce, providing a wholesome kick when you need a boost. Nuts and fruit provide the base of the bars, which means they pack a healthy dose of fibre, vitamins and minerals.

There are three flavours to choose from: Apricot, Date & Chocolate and my personal favourite, Raisin & Walnut. Snacking on a bar mid-morning before a lunchtime workout provided just the kick needed to sustain a strong session or they work equally well as an afternoon treat to beat the 3pm slump.

I tend to find energy bars often taste bland and can be overly sweet so the natural and homemade quality of Chimpanze Bars was a pleasant surprise.
