These Mule bars make a good recovery food, being far less processed than the majority of bars on the market. Each bar contains around 260 calories, 38g carbohydrate and 13g protein, so they’re ideal for immediate refuelling.
The sugars (carbohydrates) come mainly from rice syrup, date and banana, and the main source of protein is whey protein. Despite Mule’s reputation for tasty energy treats, the Refuel proved chewy, the flavouring (Chocolate and Date, and Chocolate and Banana) highly divisive in our taste test and some found them sickly post-workout. If so, a banana might better suit. But they’re certainly appropriate for refuelling, especially during the 30-45 minute window of opportunity when the muscles are most receptive to uptake of glucose and amino acids.
Another drawback, though, is that they contain the three top allergens – soya, nuts and dairy – making them out of bounds for those with food allergies.
