Athletic performance improvement depends on a program of exercise to stimulate muscular and cardiovascular adaptation followed by a recovery period in which the body rebuilds itself slightly more fit than before. Therefore, post- work out is just as, if not more important than the actual work out. The Hammer Recovery Bar helps boost overall health and enhances recovery with nutrients, high quality protein, and complex carbohydrates.
This bar is actually really tasty. The flavor is chocolatey and peanut buttery, but the peanut butter flavor is pretty subtle. This bar actually tastes really natural and not weird and artifical like other bars, probably because it's actually made with real ingredients. I think the texture is really the best part. The chocolate shell surrounds the chewy center. Real nice and chewy and substantial. Stick-to your ribs stuff. You won't be hungry again in 5 minutes, basically.
I'm not sure if I'd use them as actual recovery bars. They're pretty good as afternoon pick-me-up snacks, as well as food for gruelingly long rides (but not really the best race food as they're just too chewy and thick). However I use them on longer rides because they don't cause any bloating and are pretty resistant to melting on hot days.
When I went out and did the Mudfoot Dirty Hundo, which wass a 100-mile gravel ride, I basically carried 8 of these in my handlebar bag and ate every single one, one every hour for 8 hours. My other buddies bonked within the last 3 hours of riding, but I felt fine. (I also followed up with Endurolyte tabs also from Hammer and that pretty much got me through it.) These pack a lot of energy (300kCal) into a small, tasty package, although I do wish they came in other flavors just for the sake of variety.
