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.


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
