The original Clif Bar was introduced in 1992 by Gary Erikson as an alternative to the Powerbar - the only available energy bar on the market at the time. In his words and we agree - he produced a product that was "something better than a cookie that was more energy bar". With almost immediate success, the Clif Bar selection has grown to well over a dozen great flavors and is the go-to choice for many cyclists and athletes.
Depending on the flavor you choose, you will find them packed with chunks of apricots, chocolate, almonds, peanuts and natural whole foods. Each bar has over 23 vitamins and minerals. The unique and natural blend of carbohydrates, protein and fiber in Clif Bars causes a steady increase in energy and gradual decline in blood sugar levels to avoid the sugar high and crash. Using only non-GMO soy protein means none of the soy protein has been genetically modified. Color coated wrappers make finding the flavor choices easy. On a feel good note - Clif Bars use packages with non-toxic inks and recycled paper board with no shrink wrap.

Just tried the white chocolate mac here in Maui...the absolute BEST tasting bar around.. they nailed this one perfectly!
The white chocolate macadamia nut bar is their best tasting bar, one bite and your hooked.
I rate these highly but the recent recall(still in progress) has me concerned about salmonella in those containing peanuts or peanut products. I notice there are some still listed on this site with peanuts.
Find a flavor you like. Eat them within a month. You wont find a better bar.
