Item # CLF0009

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

Clifbar Clif Shot Bloks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I haven't had a flavor that I didn't like. Good stuff.

The packaging makes these easy to grab a bite on the move.

So good!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Love these for hikes or for shoving in my fishing bag! I like the strawberry and black cherry flavors the best. They taste just like fruit snacks or gummy bears. The black cherry flavor has caffeine which is a nice pick me up during a long run or hike.

Pros: tastes great, no mess like clif goo

Cons: packaging is weird and long

So good!

Energy Party Bloks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love Shot Bloks probably more than I should. I'll use them skiing, biking, hiking, and eating at my house when I definitely don't need it. Almost all of them taste great and they're easy to throw in your pocket.

Pros:
-Easy to eat. I found some gel's make me need to consume it with water with it, these don't seem to be as necessary to do that (though you should stay hydrated!).
-Tasty. Seriously all of them are good. Almost like candy. Trail candy.
- For bikeracers, protip: you can lick the bottoms and stick them onto your frame and they'll stay there so you don't need to mess with opening a package while riding. Might need to clean the top tube after, but neat trick.
-I like the amped up sodium Margarita or caffeine if I need an extra kick.

Cons:
-They're addictive and you will need to buy more quickly as they are that good.
-I like the caffeinated ones, but don't love the Black Cherry flavor. Only flavor I'm not a fan of, but know people who dig it.

My personal favorite flavor is pictured here - Strawberry Margarita. Has a sweet & semi salty taste and they're perfect for bike parties.

Energy Party Bloks

Delicious Quick Boost

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These are awesome. They are great to bring along for a long day of hiking, biking or a quick boost before a workout. My favorite flavor is the Cran-Razz. I recommend having these to put in your pack, always.

Clif Shot Bloks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are vital for my long runs! They deliver very quick energy and are easy to digest. This is very important because I have a very sensitive stomach and many mid-run energy sources can make me sick. The simple block form makes them easy to dose out during your run: each block has about 33 calories and 8g carbs. Just make sure you drink a lot of water with them to aid digestion! Also, Shot Bloks are no replacement for adequate nutrition and sleep. Like all mid-run nutrition, they will work off your starting energy supply by extending it and giving you boosts as needed. Don't expect any miracles if you are exhausted or not eating properly. I prefer the raspberry bloks myself but I've tried most of the flavors and they are all very tasty.

Quick Energy!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love these for a quick boost on the skin track. The packaging makes these super easy to eat and carry in a pocket for consumption.

Best flavor ever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These blocks (margarita) make we want to go and race... so i have an excuse to eat them.. this flavor is like candy. but not too sweet, and a nice salty taste..

Best quick energy for biking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Blocks are much better than gels. I hate using a gel during biking and then having to deal with the mess of the remaining gel in the packet the rest of the ride. Blocks make life much easier. Citrus or Mountain Berry for taste.

Energy Boost

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I'm hooked on these things. The ones with caffeine really provide that extra kick when you start fading on the trail. I bring them on every ride and sometimes just munch 'em when i'm tired at work. The Orange flavor is tasty.

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.
