Mini Review: Simbree Energy Bites
Simbree Energy Bites are little nuggets of nutritional, natural energy food. Ã‚Â They’re made with real food that’s not adulterated with any processing, preservatives or added flavors…just real stuff that’s real good.
I tried them on several longer rides, including my ‘best road ride ever‘ and the trip to Carvens Cove where we shot most of the vid in the GoPro Hero review, and they kept me feeling strong and full. Ã‚Â I shared some with our other writers and the friends I rode with, and everyone seemed to think they were pretty good. One person commented they were a little dry, but, to be honest, his was the only opinion like that and I think they’re actually fairly moist.
They come in three flavors: Maple Walnut, Almond Pistachio and Cashew Coconut, all of which are delicious. They’re easy to eat while riding and on the road, you could just throw a few in your jersey pocket for easy access. Ã‚Â Besides being made of real, whole foods (like honey, oats, oat bran, cashews, etc.), most of the ingredients are Organic and there’s ZERO sodium (but lots of potassium!) in any of the three flavors. Ã‚Â Just make sure you’re suckin’ down some sports drink with sodium in it to keep your electrolytes up.

Simbree’s online store is through Amazon.com, where they sell for $38.43 for box of SIX pouches (about $6.40 each). Ã‚Â Each pouch is the equivalent of four typical energy bags, so that’s about on par with what four bars would cost.
