Unlike Vito, I don't tolerate solid foods on long workouts so I always used sport drinks (Gatorade, Powerade) or UltraFuel For really long rides(3+hours).

You can also use energy gels or my favorite are SportBeans.

That long a workout, you need fluids, electrolytes and some carbs.

Experiment, everyone is different as to what works.
