Clif Bar energy bar review
This distinctively free-form splat of a snack might look like something you’d find on your shoe after running with a vegan dog, but in taste and texture terms Clif bars are in a different class. They even passed muster for the kids’ packed lunches.
They’re a bit more fatty and fibre-rich than other bars we’ve tried, and there’s a fair amount of chewing to do before they’re on their way.
There’s plenty of protein in the rice/oat/soy/fruit mix, though, and energy delivery is stable and steady whatever intensity you’re working at, though they are better suited to slower stuff.
Clif use as high a proportion of organic (70 percent) and ethically sourced ingredients as possible, they’re resistant to extremes of temperature and they’re good value too.
