Easy to carry, tasty, and full of nutrition.

Variety is the spice of life -- we couldn't agree more. We understand ('cause we've been there) that after numerous hours of training and racing, the body needs to mix it up a little in terms of what goes in the tank. That's why the folks at Clif Bar set out to create another energy food option that complements their bars and gels. The result is Clif Shot Bloks. They're simple-to-handle, easy-to-chew, and provide similar nutrition to Shot gel, so they'll fit seamlessly into your training and racing nutrition program.

The primary ingredient for Shot Bloks is brown rice syrup which provides easily assimilated carbohydrates for working muscles, and they provide the mineral salts known as electrolytes. These electrolytes allow electrical impulses to travel properly throughout your body, permitting normal bodily function. When you sweat, you start to deplete your electrolyte stores and experience potential performance decline, so it's best to help replenish them through food and fluid intake.

Clif created Shot Bloks, each in a 10g size, so that 3 Bloks provide 100 calories. That makes it easy to track caloric intake during long outings. There are 6 Bloks to a single serve package, so one package provides 200 calories.

In one order of Shot Bloks you'll get 18 individual 6-Blok packages. The individual packages slide easily into your jersey pocket for quick access while taking up minimal space. This design also keeps it simple to squeeze the Bloks directly into your mouth for single handed re-fueling. Bloks are available in Black Cherry, Cola, Orange, Margarita, Cran Razz, Lemon Lime, Mountain Berry and Strawberry. Black Cherry and Cola have 50mg caffeine, Orange has 25mg. Margarita has 3x the sodium while the remaining Shot Bloks offer no additional stimulants. Please be forewarned that you're all-but-certain to get terribly addicted. For all of their nutritional value, they are candy on the palate. In our experience it's the first athlete-focused food you'll ever need to protect from the non-athletes in your life.

  • 18 sleeves of 6 Bloks
  • 100 calories per three blocks
  • Contains carbohydrates and electrolytes
  • Some flavors contain extra sodium or caffeine

Delicious

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've grown very used to having these with me on pretty much any ride, and they are awesome. Very delicious and a solid pick-me-up to keep you going. I'll mix it up with most of the brands that offer these sort of things, my favorites would be these Shot Bloks and the chews from Honey Stinger. Both are awesome, as Jason mentioned I would have to give Clif the nod on packaging though.

My current favorite is Tropical punch, but I have yet to try one I hated.

Reserve fuel miles out or extra kick?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

i favor the margarita for the extra sodium I need from over perspiring in the summer heat. All flavor are delicious and habituating. Be careful to limit use if you are trying to burn fat! They are critical limp home fuel if you burn out too soon on your ride still miles from home and an extra kick if you need that boost to knock out some quality strava segments.

Packaging FTW

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The package is what makes these great for cycling, easy to split open the top and grab one block at a time. I like honey stinger blocks too, but they are much harder to eat while riding. Have tried most of the flavors and like margarita or cran-razz the best.

Light and refreshing

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Another great grab and go option from Clif, though I never got on the clifbar band wagon as I dont believe in leaving a little Hansel and Gretel trail down the center of a route, I have embraced Clif's other energy supplement options. I particular like the orange blok snack, leaned on these heavily while backpacking in Arches on some pretty steamy days this past year.

Strawberry flavored awesomeness!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Has anyone in their right mind ever said no to a delicious gummy treat?! Apparently these even have some nutritional value to them... bonus!
These are perfect for backpacking. Super easy to throw in a pocket or pouch and munch really quick on the trail. Provides that awesome little bit of energy you need when you're really dragging ass and need some motivation!
Tastes a lot better than the gel energy shots-- much more palatable, and way easier to save a few of them to snack on later. The strawberry ones are my jam right now!

Love the new Citrus Flavor

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great new flavor, easy to pack, great way to keep fueled consistently. Works especially well for the younger adventurers who haven't developed a "taste" for energy gels.
We have to keep them hidden at home, they become easy snack food when adults aren't looking :)

So convenient. Wont ride without them.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've transitioned completely to chews when I'm on bike. Shot blocks are my favorite because of the flavor and the convenience of the packaging. It's so easy to squeeze a block out every 15 or 20 minutes and slide the package back in my jersey or pack. For this reason alone these outdo the gu and pro bar versions.

Berry-flavored cocaine

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bought one box out of curiosity, and I can't help but come back for more, they're amazing! Perfectly sized for whatever boost you need, and they taste so good it can be hard to stop snacking. I always carry a couple packs when I go out hiking, they're small enough that the weight contribution is negligible. But I always end up glad I have them, no matter what.

great to stave the bonk

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

they taste good. They work well. I prefer them to the gel, not sure why. Great for both hiking and cycling, though, not your best bet in a pace line, as the packaging is a two hander.

Reduce Fatiuge

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Most months of the year I have these stashed in my chest pocket or pack. The variety of flavors all taste great and give you that extra boost when you need it most (especially the high sodium of extra caffeine boost). I like to take a serving with some water and if you are really cramping take the other serving 15 minutes later. Its like you were never fatigued in the first place. Keep them close to your body if you want them to be chewable in the winter months.

Small pick-me-up.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've used the flavors mountain berry, strawberry and tropical punch w/ caffeine. The flavors are not over powering. If you are really feeling bonked, I would eat solid food. These blocks help you if you've already been eating properly during your activity. I would err on the side of caution when opening the packaging and trying to bite a block of the stick. These blocks are small/big enough to be a chocking hazard.

But really, that could happen with any type of food.

Tasty Quick Energy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Delicious, packable and easily digestible. Not much more you can ask for here. I love these for just about any activity I do.

Great snack while hiking!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My first experience with Shot Blox was horrible - a Walt Disney World half marathon at night. They passed them out at mile 9 - how in the heck do you scramble to open a pack while running?!? Ended up tossing them into the trash...

Fast forward to hiking... these are great! Awesome to slide into a cargo pocket or pouch on your pack - eat a couple, move on. I wish that there was a multi flavor pack, instead of having to visit a local store for flavors - but that's just me.

These do the trick - and I prefer the caffeine laced ones. Like a gummi bear molded into a cube, they do the trick!

Provides a reasonable boost.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I eat these on days when I'm dragging a little more than usual and they seem to help. The texture is kinda strange so I can't eat a ton of them at a time.

Feeling tired? Eat these!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love having these with me on a tour or hike. When I start feeling tired and can't get past that last leg I munch on a couple of these and voila! I'm good to go till the end! I am really impressed with these at first I thought they were a gimmick but after trying them I am a true believer! I love the cran-rasberry flavor the most but the strawberry is a close first as well! I highly recommend these for any outdoor sport! If you have any questions about these don't hesitate to hop on our live chat line and ask for me (Jane H.) I'm more than happy to answer your questions!

Excellent complement to Osmo

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hydration in the bottle, nutrition in the pocket. I buy these in bulk, switching flavors with every purchase. I've come to appreciate the ones with a bit of caffeine <grin>. I cut the sleeve in half, and eat one Blok every 20 minutes. Very convenient, and since starting this, have yet to bonk.

They can get old on a longer ride, so I augment them with a more traditional protein bar on the hour during longer rides, so a Shot Blok at 20 and 40 minutes, a protein bar at the top of the hour, rinse, repeat.

"Strawberry fields forever"

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They help with a burst of energy and they also taste really good too! Love all the flavors but strawberry is my favorite.

Delicious

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

though more expensive than gummy bears or swedish fish, they're tasty and one of my favorite treats in the backcountry. I can work through a single pack over the course of a mile or two, just eating one blok at a time. Be sure to drink water with them/in between bloks as they are high in sugar and will rot your gut and can lead to a spike and crash.

Delicious & Nutritional!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A wonderfully delicious way to get much needed electrolytes! Super compact & lightweight. I always carry a pack of these shot bloks in my hip belt pocket. Good stuff.
