    Default Half time nibbles

    Have just lately started having a few wines gums at half time to keep energy levels up.

    How many should one take ?

    Any better ideas than wine gums ?

    If I eat anything at all - it would be a banana. I have been carrying an energy bar in my bag all season, but never eaten it.

    I'm tempted to agree with LPP.

    I don't normally eat anything; just water will do. But at a recent game, the coaches were dishing Wine Gums out like confetti. He gave me 3. For the rest of the 2nd half I was thirsty as hell and my moth felt dry and sticky, and I regretted eating them.

    I sometimes wonder if they are just psychological.
