What we think
Do you struggle with mid-afternoon energy crash? Are you looking for a new bar to carry with you on your long rides? Verb Caffeinated Energy Bites are the perfect solution! Created by Yale students in their dorm room, these young entrepreneurs found a way to combine high quality ingredients with caffeine to provide an energizing snack. It took them over 127 recipes to make the perfect bar, and we think they nailed it!
Verb might be a newer brand, but they know what they're doing! Their caffeinated energy bar contains caffeine from organic green tea, so it gives you the energy without the crash and burn. They use minimal, thoughtful ingredients like oats and almond butter, that are actually good for you. Not to mention, these bars are gluten-free and vegan friendly, so they can fit into most dietary needs!
Each Verb Energy Bite contains the same amount of caffeine as a shot of espresso (65mg), 90 calories, and 13 grams of carbs, making them a great pre-workout or mid-day snack option. They come in a small, lightweight single serve package so they're also easy to carry with you on a ride or run for a mid-workout caffeine boost. By the way....green tea contains the plant-based amino acid L-Theanine, which relaxes the mind without inducing drowsiness. Can you say win win?

How We Use It
We like to eat a Verb bar an hour before our workouts with plenty of fluids. It provides a boost of energy without making us jittery. These are also a staple item for our desk drawers and glove boxes, just in case the mid-afternoon brain fog hits.
