CLIF Bars

Just found these in the local market. They are 70% organic all natural energy bars, containing mostly oats and soy. Anyone else heard of them or use them? I'm thinking they'd make a good pre-workout snack, even though they are 200+ calories per bar. It seems as though all the protein and such would make them a good source of energy. Check them out, what do you all think?

I'm a big fan of Luna bars (Clif's counterpart for women). I love them. They give me an energy boost and satisfy my sweet tooth. I actually just had one. Clif also has the Clif Kid Z bars, which are essentially the same things at about half the calories. When I am looking not to go over my calories too much, I eat a Z bar. It's just as delicious and makes me feel the same way. I especially enjoy the Apple Cinnamon Z bars.

I eat a lot of bars. Most are too high in calories for daily use, but as the PP said, the Z bars are a good lower cal option. I also keep some cliff bars around for when I do longer (4+hours) mountain bike rides or hikes and need more of a meal out of bar. I also like the MoJo bar which has under 200 cals and has a more salty/sweet taste going on, but I like them so much I don't buy them because I will eat them when I am not even hungry!

Love, love, love 'em.

My husband is a huge cliff bar eater. He also likes the mojo bars by cliff. As mentioned, they are on the high side calorie wise. Since I am on weight watchers I prefer the z bar.(the honey graham is the best.) It's only two points and if I am having an intense chocolate craving I'll eat a chocolate brownie z bar. It's not quite a brownie but it is perfect for staying with in the diet and feeding the craving. Even our 17 year old son likes the z bar, his fave being the choc. chip.

I'm sick to death of pretty much all bars. I never get tired of a handfull of almonds, a little dried fruit.

There is quite a bit of sugar in it.

FYI - 21g sugar is roughly equivalent to 1/8 cup of sugar.

Everybody has a judgment. Eat them if you like them. Luna bars (or at least the two I have stashed in my desk right now) only have 11 grams of sugar. The Z bars have less. There is always a way to enjoy what you like.

OP here...

Thanks for the comments! I tried the Black Cherry Almond yesterday and loved it! I can't wait to try more!!! I ordered a few boxes of both the Z and Clif bars and am anxiously awaiting their arival! (ordered the honey graham... thanks 6:47!)

Although I agree, they do have a bit of sugar in them, my goal isn't to snack on them all day... just every once in a while for a workout snack or part of a quick breakfast! I don't really eat much sugar during the day anyway. Plus, it's something new and tasty to switch things up! Yummy!

TO Thursday, June 04, 2009, 4:22 PM

I was the poster above you. Not sure if your comment was made to me, but I was in no way passing judgment. Never did I say that the OP should avoid them. It's hard to visualize what 21g of sugar looks like; whereas it's much easier to visualize 1/8 cup of sugar. Just putting it into perspective.

TO OP: Luna bars do have half the calories so they may be a better choice.

And 1/8 cup of sugar = 2 tablespoons of sugar

Well actually...

Not to get too technical, but Luna bars don't have fewer calories, they are just smaller in size. When I compared the two, I used the White Chocolate Macadamia nut flavor, since they both have it, I found some Luna bars actually have more calories per gram. The Clif bars, at 68g had 240 calories, or 3.53 calories per gram and then 7g of fat. The Luna bars, at 48g had 190 calories, or 3.96 calories per gram and then also had 7g of fat. Then also, although the Clif bars had more carbs and sugar, (16g more carbs, 10g more sugar) the Luna bars had more saturated fat and sodium (1g sat. fat, 50g more sodium) Just something more to think about! Becareful with those nutrition facts, they tend to be decieving. So, I would say I guess it just depends on your calorie needs for the day, I wouldn't say that one is nessecarily better than the other.
