This is a traditional Columbian cycling energy bar, originally called a Bocadillo. Completely natural, made from Guava and syrup, the individual bars are essentially a bar and gel all rolled into one and are solid to touch, but then melt in the mouth.
Each bar is edged with a sugar coating and then wrapped in a dried leaf. This wrapping provides a waterproof, fully biodegradeable cover, which I personally think is a brilliant idea - reducing waste/litter and also making it easier when you are cycling as you can simply throw the leaf away.
The taste is fruity (it is Guava), and with its simple ingredients, very sweet, with a slightly grainy texture.
The individual bars are relatively small, but as it is sweet, I often split them into 2 or 4 and have a smaller piece at a a time.
All of my training friends enjoyed both the story of the product and company, but more importantly the bar itself and would definitely have it again. Each bar is 40g and is a suitable energy and nutritional composition to other energy bars on the market.
