Product Description

An energy bar to go. Comes in a variety of flavors.


To perform at your best, the last thing you want to put in your body is a synthetic product.

That’s why we believe in using healthy ingredients, such as organic rolled oats, organic roasted soybeans, organic milled flaxseed and organic soy flour. All 15 CLIF BAR flavors are made with 70% organic ingredients. It's your body, you decide™.

Nutrition for Sustained Energy®
With a mix of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber, CLIF BAR is a moderate glycemic index food. What does this mean? Basically, you'll benefit from a steady increase in blood sugar levels followed by a gradual decline (sustained energy!).

Know what that means? You keep going.

Eat a CLIF BAR 1 – 2 hours before a workout or race, and you’ll avoid the sugar high and crash associated with refined ingredients and sweeteners. A CLIF BAR delivers the boost you need without unwanted crash and burn.

You don’t have to be an athlete to enjoy a CLIF BAR, but with the extra energy a CLIF BAR provides you may find it hard not to be.

tarolI used to eat these a lot

Voted 4/5

Now I prefer the Clif Luna bars... Clif bars tend to be a little thick and chewey but do taste alright. Luna bars tend to be easier to chew and swallow.

gruntLove 'em!

Voted 5/5

I really like Clif Bars. I enjoy a Clif Bar as a snack to avoid a sugar rush. I eat Clif Bars at home, work, and certainly in the outdoors. I could even eat these while morning sick during my pregnancy due to their mild flavors! It was nice to know that one of the few things I could eat actually provided decent nutrition. My personal favorite flavor is chocolate chip.

Dan DaltonDefinately love these...

Voted 5/5

for mountain excursions and cragging. Great quick snack that tastes great and has a good deal of vitamins, minerals, and an appropriate ratio of carbs to protein. I love these and have them almost daily! Personal favorite flavor is blueberry.

They're okay. More expensive but less likely to melt than a snickers bar. You need to have some water with 'em.

I find them hard to digest. They make me gassy.

Alan EllisYuk!

Voted 1/5

I wish I had a nickle for every Clif bar I've thrown up. I finally quit eating them. They taste like cardboard, they are hard to digest, and they're heavy. I don't eat them at home so why would I eat them in the mountains. I don't now!

I have yet to taste an energy bar of any kind that I actually like! Clif Bars are no exception.

Voted 3/5

These are chewey and have a really gross taste. They do give you lots of nutrients. I think they need to add lots of sweetener.

Voted 4/5

I like the flavors, but they make my jaw get tired from all the chewing it takes to break them down. That said, I always keep a couple in my pack.

kitcarson61A staple in my pack

Voted 4/5

I've been through hundreds over the years. Tasty enough, decent nutrition, good on the carbs and calories. The Clif Nectar bars are even tastier.

OJ LoennekerUgh...

Voted 2/5

I have tried them, and they taste like crap. One of my climbing partners loves them, and eats multiples on trips, and then has the worst gas for the rest of the day. Makes tent life even more fun...

Personally, I stay away from this product.

I go back and forth between these and the Mojo bars. If I want something chewy, it's this product. Good assortment of flavors.

Scarp172Good for fast and light

Voted 5/5

We bring these with us mountaineering because we get a good amount of calories for the weight. They have a large assortment of flavors and some are great, some are so-so and some are just awful. Once you find the ones you like, it makes a great staple for pack food.
