    I looked around for something better than Gatorade. I found this, and ordered a tub of it.

    A great substitute for gatorade is called Zipp Fizz. It is sold at Costco, and is an electrolyte replacement mix. Comes in small tubes of powder, you add to water. Seems like an "adult' version of gatorade, without all the sugar.
    Got to have my pop tarts for early morning snacks, and Sunbelt granola bars for mid day. Cliff bars work well when really hungry, but not my preference for taste. Still, lots of calories and energy in a small package. Variety is important when out hunting, so don't get too locked in to the same thing every day.

    It has 15% simple sugar from fructose. Sugar is sugar no matter where it comes from. Being a diabetic it's a no-no for me.

    Of course all sugars are for you, but fructose comes from fruit, and I seem to react to it better. It doesn't make me sleepy like simple sugar.

    I load up on jerky, and my wife makes apple fruit leather, kind of fruit jerky. I also carry powdered gatorade or protein drink to mix in a canteen cup. A granola bar or three and some dark chocolate Snickers or Milky Ways are usually found in my pack, too. A couple of hot apple cider bags and perhaps an MRE or two for unexpected overnights complete the package.

    Bought a case of 48 Snickers bars from Sam's Club - did not survive! Also like the Honey Stingers.

    I bought a new beef one , can't remember the name at the moment (Jack) but it was good and wished I'd bought more. Came back the 5 fwy and not 395 so couldn't grab anymore If you pack jerkey while you hunt, I pack extra liquids. Makes me thirsty.

    Sorry trKytrack2, your right the hydrate & recover has 5mg per serving and the energy & focus has 0g sugar per serving.

    I just threw all the leftover halloween treats that the neighborhood kids didn't take into my bag. They will not survive the next 10 days of deer hunting.
