    Worst trail food?

    What's the weirdest/worst trail food you've taken on the bike?

    I've been getting increasingly lazy of late. I run out of bars/gels/beans and end up grabbing whatever I can find in the kitchen before I leave. Last week it was Mochi (turned out to be really, really good), yesterday it was Zapps Hotter-n-Hot Jalepeno chips.

    Cheese is a great thing to take skiing with you, not so much in the middle of July. Fried chicken on the other hand, oh how I can eat me some fried chicken.
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    Cheerios mixed with cold gravy!

    And, yes, I knew someone that would fill a squeeze tube with this concoction.

    mmm, food

    I too, have been playing around with trail food, 'specially since I'm not a racer type anymore. I'd rather have something that's yummy in my tummy. Thankfully, it's steel lined and impermiable.

    I've learned that pizza can turn against you if you're really busting it up the mountain. The acid from the sauce has made me do a stomach evacuation before.

    The weirdest thing I've come across is anchovies as an electrolyte source.

    I like pizza, focaccia, burritos. I can only handle so many _____ bars before I get ill just looking at them.

    Chocolate milk with a sun bathed doughnut is a prime after ride snack.

    A half-eaten, cold Filet O Fish sandwhich my roommate left in the fridge. No, I'm not lying. And no, I'm never doing that again. That was going on 20 years ago and thinking about that STILL makes my stomache cramp.

    The worst thing to eat is whatever I find after I'm bonking, in the bottom of my pack, that's been mangled down there for months.

    It's also the best food ever. Because its food.
    Take the long cut, we'll get there eventually.

    Definitely an acquired taste.

    A second vote for original Powerbars. They almost ripped the teeth out of my mouth trying to take a bite and sat in my stomach like a rock. Gnarly flatulence later even after consuming plenty of water. Haven't eaten one in years. Almost impossible to gnaw on in cold weather.

    I can totally see taking bacon on a ride. Bacon makes everything taste better!

    I read that Mark Weir takes sardines in his pack. I like them, but don't think I can do it on the trail. Maybe it's great emergency bonk food.

    JUSTIN'S NUT BUTTER takes the cake. Oh it's real. Hot, sweaty, tired, and hungry in middle of a ride - the last thing I want is peanut butter. It's good in a sandwich or at home, but ick(!) - squeezing peanut butter into your mouth during exercise? Someone likes this??

    It reminds me of this:

    Funny video.

    I think PB&J sandwiches are great. I would make it, but I'm lazy. It's easier for me to throw 2-3 Cliff bars into the pack and I don't have to worry about them getting smashed.

    I rode 4 days in Moab and didn't have to eat 1 Cliff bar. A friend made PB&J every day and it was very satisfying. If only Cliff could duplicate that taste!
