Apples are just too bulky to carry, and energy bars have all that wrapping you have to tear with your teeth first. M&Ms just seem so...portable. Yeah, I'll go with that. Plus they're chocolate.
At a realistic estimate of about 25kcal burned per mile cycled, a 1lb bag of peanut M&Ms will fuel you for a journey of just over 80 miles. Start eating them early, though, the peanuts will take a while to digest.
