Known for 100's of years as a high-altitude, energy giving and delicious sweet treat - KMC NRG BAR is a perfect pocket sized addition to any demanding sports or physical activity. We recommend you consume one bar every 60-90 minutes or break it into smaller pieces to snack on throughout, before and during exercise to #Recharge. Suitable for all Sports. KMC NRG BAR Chocolate Coated contains 48g of Carbohydrate per bar. They also 4 Key Electrolytes and B Vitamins (B3, B5, B6 & B12) so they pack a real punch. If you want to #Recharge your performance, you have come to the right place! Always think ahead and stay on top of your energy levels, eat pro-actively not reactively, to avoid hitting "the wall".

  • Eat well before you start exercising and have up to one bar every 60-90 minutes into your activity,or snack on small bites or peices throughout. (That's if you can resist the chocolate mint goodness)
  • Our KMC NRG BARs are easy to take, they dissolve in your mouth and leave a refreshing and slightly invigorating aftertaste, but we would still recommend having some water with them. Try taking our KMC ISO MIX in a bottle or pack for hydration!
  • It's a good idea to mix it up with some GEL+ Caffeine energy gels. Caffeine is scientifically proven to boost your physical endurance. (...but don't exceed the recommended GDA).
