    Man, I just got some of these... man, they're yummy! I was bracing myself for that "energy bar" flavor, but damn... these taste like something I'd eat anyway :)

    I did the same w/ Balance bar @ the snowshoe national a few years ago.

    But these really are much better: Chocolate Caramel Fusion & Caramel Peanut Crisp! mmm :D

    Speaking of which......Snicker's Marathon Energy Bars are even better than the Triple Threat's, IMO. They taste great, almost like a candy bar, but with the same basic makeup as the other energy bars. They sell them at BJ's Wholesale now, so I'm sure you can score them at Costco and Sam's. There were some on Ebay, as well.

    Ya, but try putting one down while your heart rate is boosting over 190 and you are sucking down water just to avoid cotton mouth....these things dry out your mouth like the Sahara and the crispy things get caught in your dust-coated throat. I had a dry mouth one day while in the bike shop and despite throwing back a bottle of water I was still choking on it. Too dry, I'll use Gu for races and as for these things, if I ever get caught paying 3 dollars for an over-priced snickers bar....well shoot me there.

    I hear you man... those situations definitely call for gu! but honestly in those conditions, eating anything is kinda difficult!
