Clif Clif Bar
Hey there, this is Steve Sidorski once again and my review for today will deal with Clif Bar Energy Bars.
The direct link is http://www.bodybuilding.com/store/clif/clifbar.html and you will find many flavours to choose from. It is good that they have a lot of flavours because the ones I have tried, Crunchy Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip, really suck. The only two good things about them is they are a source of protein and that the ingredients are 70% organic.
My first impression when I opened one is that it looked like something I threw up. That goes for both bars. The taste itself wasn't really bad but wasn't really good either. Each of these two flavours packs a bar that is both chewy and crunchy. Similar to multivitamins and meal replacement shakes, they have a lot of vitamins and minerals which I suppose is a good thing as well. On the other hand, the Crunchy Peanut Butter flavour has 18g of sugar and 40g of total carbohydrates while the Chocolate Chip bar has 21g of sugar and a whopping 45g of carbs for a bar which is only 68g. I will let you decide what to rate them for nutrition but they both pass my evaluation for taste, barely, with a three out of five for both flavours.
Although I am not sure why, these bars are quite popular. You may be a person who disagrees with my review of these bars up to this point. Well to make up for disappointing you, I will give you some valuable advice. If you buy these bars in the stores, each one costs close to $3 after taxes. If you buy them directly from the website above, and you buy at least twelve, you will get them for half that price including shipping.
If you are a Clif Bar addict and want to buy seventy-two or more of the same flavour, you would only have to pay $56 American funds to have it shipped to the USA. If you want it shipped to Canada be prepared to pay approximately $95 for seventy-two Clif Bars.
Here is a more specific and informative product description directly from the manufacturer.: Clif Bar's are high in protein, have no trans fat , are loaded with twenty-three vitamins and minerals, made with organic oats and soybeans, are very nutritious and considered an excellent source of energy.
Below is a story from Gary, the owner of Clif Bar: “Clif Bar is named after my father, Clifford, my childhood hero and companion throughout the Sierra Nevada mountains. In 1990, I lived in a garage with my dog, skis, climbing gear, bicycle and two trumpets. The inspiration to create an energy bar occurred during a day-long, one-hundred and seventy-five mile ride with my buddy, Jay. We had been gnawing on some other energy bars. Suddenly, despite my hunger, I could not take another bite. That was the moment I now call the epiphany. Two years later, after countless hours in Mom's kitchen, Clif Bar became a reality. And the mission to create a better-tasting energy bar was accomplished. Thanks, Mom!
Finally, below is more information from the manufacturer / producer: Clif Bar has grown since 1990 and still holds within a spirit of adventure, which began on that ride. Clif Bar also continues to thrive each day. As the company evolves, we face many choices, yet we always do our best to take care of our people, our community and our environment.
