Clifbar Clif Bars - The Original
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Remember when Clif Bars were (nearly) all that were out there? Those were the days... or so we thought! I never really took to the Clif Bar taste. I ate them because I thought they gave me energy or that they were good for me. Recently I created a chart that broke down grams of protein, calories, weight and calories per ounce for 22 different bars. I was looking at these numbers to optimize trail snacks for week-long alpine backpacking trips (I was looking for most calories for least weight). In my study, the Chocolate Brownie Clif Bar (my favorite) had the least amount of calories per ounce (that's bad) and average protein content.
Good news for the folks at Clifbar, their Chocolate Peanut Mojo Dipped Bar - my all around favorite bar - finished in the top 20% in calories per ounce (that's good).
