I discovered CLIF energy bars a few years ago and went nuts for them. I used to stock up on the various flavours and was sure to always keep one on hand for after yoga or before a workout. My brother in law would tease me. What long hike are you doing? How many miles did you bike? CLIF energy bars are great source of protein and provide energy for extreme athletes.
I brought CLIF Energy Bars with me on my hike through the alps..

I also brought CLIF energy bars with me when I went to China, in case we got hungry and needed fuel throughout the day. My friends were laughing at me, because 5 minutes of walking on the Great Wall of China and I said I needed to stop and eat a CLIF bar. Hey- I definitely needed energy to climb all these stairs!

So needless to say, I was thrilled to hear about CLIF Organic Trail Mix Bars. Good for any time and perfect for when you might want a lighter snack. They come in several flavours:
- Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter- these ones are my favourite!
- Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond
- Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Raspberry
- Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt
- Coconut Almond Peanut
Notice a trend? As a chocolate lover, these flavours are right up my alley. I will forgive Clif Bar Company for having one flavour without chocolate. But only because it has coconut. These bars are gluten free and don't contain oats. All the bars are Vegan and vegetarian.
They retail for $1.99 and can be found in most major grocery stores and natural food stores such as Loblaws, Whole Foods, Sobeys, Wal-Mart, Longos, Safeway, Thrifty Foods, Save on Foods, Federated Coop, Calgary Coop, IGA, Costco, Shoppers Drug Mart, London Drugs, Rexall, Jean Coutu, most airports, Mac’s, Couche-Tard, Shell, Canadian Tire, 7 Eleven, Moutain Equipment Coop, Running Room, Sport Chek, Amazon.ca, Spud.ca.
