Professional kiwis cyclist Jack Bauer (four times tour de France) tested a bear bar and reported back:
Jack here, the guy you gave your sports bars to at the Sat market. Hope you're doing well! I thought I'd fire you some feedback on your bar - which was awesome. I tried it today out training.
First of all, as it's a soft bar I expected it to break apart in my pocket, esp with body heat on a hot day....it didn't. It stayed in perfect shape after 5hrs in the pocket in full on sun. Big thumbs up there.
Taste was great, loved the consistency - how it was so moist/easy to get down - kind of raw cake mixture. Big thumbs up on that, I haven't found a bar so easy and quick to eat before. Esp with the nutritional content your bar has. Really makes a difference when you're trying to get energy in and breathing hard at the same time!
I tried the bar after 4.5hrs on the bike today, when the tank was really running low, makes it easy to get a sense of how quick the bar was absorbed. It took about 5 mins to kick in, along with a good 200ml of water - and I got a good 45' of energy out of it. So yeah, I was really impressed! I wish I'd bought a whole box from you on Sat!
Keep up the good work Rose, I look forward to seeing Mumma bear products becoming a household name in NZ!
