Anyone take cheese as a snack on rides? I took a block of extra mature cheddar one time that seemed to work well. I have a slight cheese fixation though.
I think on his polar treks Fiennes used to eat blocks of butter. But he was needing to eat 10000 calories a day
I go for a mix of jelly babies (haribo jelly babies if I can find them - cheaper, bigger packs and more moreish than bassets) and something savory. Grated carrot and humous rolls are nice.
When I first started riding proper distances I couldn't rely on my appetite to get the energy in. I wouldn't eat and drink often enough or I'd trough everything and run out of steam. So I used to eat packs of marzipan as you could see how much you were eating, as the pack usually had little 50gm markers along it, and I had to give myself a target of x number of grams per half hour and meter water in the same way too
