Excellent service and products and fast delivery. Wish I had found these energy blocks sooner. Definitely a 10 out of 10.

Met the guys a few years ago at the cycle show and was introduced to these little blocks of guava goodness, after which they became my main ride food. Life though got in the way and it had been more than 2 years since I'd had a Lucho Dillitos or taken my bike off the wall. The arrival of spring and a desire to feel fit (and control my expanding girth) got me to get the bike off the wall, that first painful weezy ride (that used to be so easy) was great but I was missing something - I made my order and got my luchos in short order. Great to have them again to help me get in shape and to help power my epic rides when I get there.Loving the Guava Goodness.

So I tried the energy blocks for the first time after being recommended them from a friend. Firstly tastes lovely I have tried guava and raspberry guava (that’s my favourite!) secondly as a very tired mummy to 2 small beings these gave me a good bit of energy which is what I need to complete my workouts! Really recommend to anyone wanting that burst of energy to get through the day
Super fast service and a product I adore! The order I placed through the website was processed the same day and arrived on the second day after I ordered. I only recently discovered Lucho Dillitos as an energy booster to fend off the bonk on longer runs or cycle rides. Aside of being vegan, gluten-free and fair trade, they’re just blooming brilliant! Easy to carry, very easy on the stomach and delicious, they are just amazing - thank you Lucho Dillitos, awesome energy boost and wrapped in a leaf - how cool is that?!!

Really like these! Much better than energy gels that mess with your insides. Leaf packaging works well and easy to dispose of. I recommend you try them if you haven't already.
James Black
Love these, I really detest the Gel things and gummy bears are not ideal either, these taste way better and are loaded with fructose so a much better option. The leaf packaging also makes me feel smug as i'm not adding to the rubbish by the side of the road. Hope these are adopted by more cyclists as they really are better in every way.
Perfect little energy boost whenever you need it. The eco wrapping reduces waste, which is good because of the planet. They're also very good at the dinner table with a cheese board.

This is a great concept and a lovely array of flavours available. Having used energy gels in the past which have a variety of downsides (packaging, waste, sickliness), Lucho Dillitos is a very welcome upgrade in all areas and a trusted companion on my rides !!

Delicious, environmentally friendly, easy on the stomach. What’s not to like!

"... these are, hands down, the best energy bars I have ever tasted."

''A welcome change. This is your mid run alternative. In addition it is a hit of energy-boosting carbs, these blocks are also full of vitamins A and C'.'

Wainwrights Round Record Holder James Forrest: “Lucho Dillitos guava energy blocks – a mix of sugar and fruit that provide an epic energy boost and taste way better than gels. You’ve got to treat yourself when you’re out on a big adventure."

"This is a job for Lucho Dillitos Bocadillos, aka "Colombia's original energy bar": a piece of tropical Kendal mint cake wrapped in a dried leaf that is as natural as any other leaf on the road."

"A different approach to sport nutrition. Natural Energy from Columbia (Yes it’s legal) and it’s like a bar and gel rolled into one making it one block of energy."

"Lucho Dillitos Energy Bars are easy to eat, chew, swallow, and digest ... I liked the texture, sweetness, lack of mess, and the biodegradable wrapping."
