Which Pocket Rocket Energy Bar is right for me?
All of VOOM's pocket rockets come in four handy chunks so you can take on energy as and when it's needed and avoid dumping a load of carbohydrates in your stomach in one big hit like a traditional energy gel. The melt in the mouth texture allows some of the energy to be absorbed into the blood stream straight from the gums meaning these energy bars are extremely fast-acting.
The Electro Energy is a caffeine-free energy bar which delivers 41g of carbohydrates (160kcal) in handy 4 chunks. We recommend one bite every 15-30 mins, to help maintain your blood sugar and energy levels but unlike a gel you can dose the energy as and when needed.
The 100mg of full-spectrum electrolytes also help replace mineral losses from sweat, which can help prevent cramp and also speed up hydration. Voom's electrolyte mix of sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium and chloride is balanced to match the composition of sweat.
This is your go-to energy bar, which can be stuffed in a rucksack, race vest or jersey pocket, without any stickiness or risk of melting. Ideal for a range of sports and activities and when you need to stay energised.
There’s no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to caffeine intake, so, as with the benefit of portioned energy, you can also control your caffeine intake with our handy four block design. Each Caffeine Kick energy bar has 175mg caffeine and 100mg taurine in addition to 40g of carbs. Caffeine and taurine work well together to enhance mental focus as well as reduce fatigue.
As an example when out running, caffeine is a useful tool towards the end of long runs or races when fatigue is setting in. You can also use a couple of chunks before a particularly tough section of the course, like a big climb, to give a much-needed boost. It's also great towards the end of the bike leg in a triathlon to give you a lift just as you hit the run course. There’s definitely a psychological element to this as well, as you anticipate the hit of energy. An extra boost, just when you need it!
If you’re looking for a pre-workout boost to get your body physically and mentally prepared for a high-intensity training session or a race, the Beta Blast is the energy bar for you. With 2g of lactic-fighting Beta-Alanine and 150mg of caffeine, this bar will help you push harder for longer during high intensity efforts. This is possible as Beta Alanine helps increase levels of muscle carnosine, which has been found to buffer lactic acid and therefore allow prolonged high intensity work. This rocket will give you lift off!
