I’m so excited to get to share more wonderful products with all of you!
Lately, I’ve been on a Clif Bar kick. I’ve been hooked on the Clif MOJO bars, which are sweet, salty, chewy, crunchy, and just so yummy. My favorite is the Peanut Butter Pretzel, which mixes the creamy sweetness of peanut butter with the crunchy salty bite of pretzels. They aren’t just your ordinary energy bar though, because they clock in around 200 calories (depending on which flavors, they’re all around 190-200 calories) and 8-9 grams of protein! So, this is definitely a snack that you don’t have to feel guilty about at all. I’m seriously addicted to them! On those days when I’m feeling like I need a little something different, the White Chocolate Macadamia is the one I reach for because you get a hint of vanilla with the smooth texture of a dreamy piece of white chocolate (perfection). Also, sometimes I get in the mood for a handful of trail mix (you know, that salty sweet combo of raisins, chocolate chips, nuts, and pretzels), but the Trail Mix bar is so much better because it’s lower in calories than a trail mix binge and gives me all of the satisfaction!
Clif also has a wonderful CRUNCH bar that is insanely good. The CRUNCH bar is sweet and buttery and crumbles with the right amount of crunch as you eat it. As a chocolate lover, I was shocked at how much I loved the Blueberry Crisp flavor! It reminded me of the crumble on top of a blueberry muffin! It’s bursting with flavor. The Honey Oat was wonderful too and it shocked me that I loved it more than the Chocolate Chip (maybe the Chocolate Chip needed more chocolate to make a difference to me, but it left me loving the other flavors, which is fine by me!). What’s great about these, is they come with two to a pack, so you can eat one and save one, or have them both! And there’s less than 200 calories for the whole pack, and 4 grams of protein, which makes them a great pre-workout snack! I love to eat a small, high-carb, low-protein snack before a work out, so eating just one of the bars is perfect for me. Once again, I was blown away by the White Chocolate flavor. I guess I’ve become quite a white chocolate addict lately, but the creamy, slightly vanilla, buttery taste and feel just hit the spot. I love it.
