Lancashire company Science In Sport have grown into one of the leading sports supplement companies since they started out in their Blackburn kitchen. They’ve established an enviable reputation for going the extra mile by packing the best possible performance ingredients and vitamin / mineral enhancements into prodcuts such as PSP, Go, Rego and Hedstart as well as their ‘Go-Bars’. The only criticism is that, like a lot of bars, they are tough to chew – a situation that generally gets worse as the temperature drops.
SIS’s new ‘chewy banana’ bar was so well received in testing that the first batch was produced before the wrappers were ready. Taste is somewhere between those chewy banana shaped sweets and the real thing (it contains 30% banana and all other flavourings are natural). Nutritional details are 66% carbohydrate, 11.3% protein, 1.7% fat with 26 other assorted minerals and vitamins.
The chewiness is a welcome relief and they are very more-ish even at 8.30 in the morning – how many other bars leave you wanting another one?
All the nutrition and taste of a bunch of ‘nana’s without the squelch.
If you’re trying to think of a top stocking filler that’s better for you than a box of chocs, SIS have also launched this shameless “Mug full of Go-Bars” shot at the Christmas charts. You get a staffordshire mug, of questionable nutritional value, complete with ultra cheesey “you’ll always be lifting the winners cup with Science in Sport” slogan and one of each of the Mango + Papaya, Apple + Blackcurrant, Choclolate + Orange, and Chewy Banana flavour Go-Bars for £5.99.
Forget Scalextric, this is what you really want for Christmas
If you want to know more about the Nana bar or the rest of the range chew your way over to the SIS website or start demanding tropical nutrition satisfaction from your LBS. In the meantime we’re off to finish that bar we started.
