Medicine Man Buck Tilton's Ask the Expert at Backpacker Mag answers "What kind of glucose boost can I keep in the tent which will not attract bears">
His advice is "keep in your tent the least amount of whatever you like for a glucose boost, and keep it in one of those new plastic bags that are labeled 'odor-proof.'"
Anyone who might run the risk of severe nightime lows I also keep an emergency glucagon injectable kit in the tent to be used by a tent mate in case that horribl night time low becomes...too low !
Put GU flavored energy gel (1.1oz single serve) packs- about 3-4 in an OPSAK, just in case; they give you 25g carbs (5g sugar) and a hundred percent of Vits. E and C.
Use sealed juice boxes, they emit less odor that tubed glucose.
