Clif Bar Product Review & Giveaway

If you haven't heard of Clif Bar (HERE), where have you been?!? Seriously. There products ROCK and taste great and their website is even a blast to navigate. Check them out if you haven't already.

If you HAVE checked out the Clif Bar products, then you already know why I love their stuff so much.

Their Natural Energy Bars (HERE) are AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME! There are sooo many flavors to try and I still haven't tried a flavor that I didn't like. Their seasonal flavors are a fun, tasty way to mix things up, too. The spiced pumpkin pie, carrot cake, chocolate brownie and peanut butter are my favorites. The bars are tasty, filling and satisfying. The consistency is great for race morning and have helped fuel me through many early morning training runs. I love keeping them in my desk drawer at the office, for a quick go-to breakfast or late-morning snack. They also offer so many other varieties of bars, targeted towards specific training, women and kids.


Clif Bar also offers a TON of products for assisting you with your endurance training and race day performance. And, they are always adding something fun, new, tasty and different. CLIF SHOT (HERE) takes a streamlined approach to performance nutrition – delivering only what your body needs most while training and racing. Our all-natural and organic ingredients help provide clean and natural performance for essential energy and hydration, plus fast muscle recovery.


Clif Shot Energy Gel (HERE) and Clif Shot Turbo Energy Gel (HERE)

I really preferred the Clif energy gel recently, over other brands I've tried. The consistency is a little thinner, making it easier to go down. I look forward to using these on some of my long runs this summer. Tabs were easy to open while on a run (bonus!). Three levels of caffeine and about 100 calories per pack. I don't typically prefer citrus flavor gel, but could down this ok. Got the perfect boost of energy after six miles on the treadmill.

Clif Shot Bloks (HERE)

Sleek and portable container, just like the website suggests. Each cube in the container contains 33 calories. I find these difficult to chew out on the run and that the Bloks stick to my teeth and give me a gummy smile post-run, unlike some of the other brands I've tried. I loved the flavors though and they were easy to down and gave me a boost of energy. I like that I don't have to down the entire pack at once and can chew one or two every few miles, giving me just a little bit of a boost, as I need it. Despite the gummy smile, I still will use these.

Clif Shot Roks (HERE)

These were the most intriguing item in my assortment of goodies. I'm still just getting into post workout recovery nutrition. Roks are bite-size pieces enabling you to take in exactly the protein you need, when you need it, to speed your recovery. Plus the protein chewy centers are wrapped in a protective crunchy shell that won’t melt in the package or in your hands. How cool is that? 20 grams of protein per package. WOW! Each package contains about 10 Roks and about 270 calories. It's like a post-run dessert! I loved all three flavors I tried .... peanut butter, chocolate and chocolate chip cookie dough! Definitely something to look forward to after your twenty milers this summer!!

Clif Shot Electrolyte Drink (HERE) (not sampled)
