What to consume before a run is a constant predicament. We tested out some pre-run fuel choices and rated them here.

Maxifuel Viperboost Fuel Bar

Taste: 4

Texture: 3.5

Effect: 4

Ease to consume: 4

Comments: Very tasty with a dark chocolate coating, this feels indulgent and gives a you a caffeine and sugar hit to power you through your run. Texture is chewy but light. Each bar contains around 200 calories, 6g of fat with 141mg of caffeine and packs a vitamin C punch for an immunity boost. Although the taste is good and the bar provides a decent pre-run lift, the ingredient list is a little long for our liking so you may want to bypass these if going au natural is your thing.
