Guava nutrition may be at the heart of every Luchos bocadillo but all our flavours have a little something different. Whatever your mood, we have a flavour to fit. Explore our tasting notes and discover the bocadillo to tickle your taste buds!
Original flavour, beautiful taste of Colombian tropical Guava fruit, with a delicious lingering aftertaste, easy to digest on the go. This has been the Colombian go to energy block for over half a century.
Guava & Coffee
Coffee and Colombia go together hand in hand, and this is no exception, made from Aribica coffee beans and Tropical Guava fruit.
This delicious combo has the Classic Guava hit, combined with a smooth mocha/ chocolate taste from the coffee beans (rather than the usual burnt espresso taste associated with most coffee foods and drinks).
Guava & Raspberry
If you like something with a little more contrast in taste, then this is the one. The flavour combination hit, is much like a fruit pastel.
You still get the lovely guava lingering aftertaste, with a little bit of berry sharpness.
Guava & Açai
The Açai berry is known the world over for its health benefits.
By utilising natural Açai pulp, our latest energy block has all the classic taste of the Açai berry. It offers up chocolate and cranberry notes, that combine brilliantly with the sweetness of the classic taste of guava.

“Bought these at the NEC Cycle Show and have eaten them all on road rides. A brilliant tasty and satisfying alternative to gels, bars or bananas! My friends loved them too and the biodegradable leaf wrapping is a nice touch - although I still take it home! Easy to open and consume on the move - I'm back for more!”
''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."
