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

Line up the Shots!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love these, I can always stuff my face no matter how nervous I am before a race with these. If I'm doing a Crit I'll lick them and line up a row on the top tube, I don't recommend licking them for any dirt rides, they get a little gritty! Gel shots are a thing of the past, these are so easy to eat, no sticky fingers, and my jersey pocket does look like a toddler's face at the chocolate factory. Cliff Shot Bloks are my go to nutrition on the bike, don't leave home without it.

Clifbar Clif Shot Bloks

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am slowly transitioning away from CLIFF to Science in Sports (SIS) products but will probably will stay with shot blocks as for variety during lower intensity rides...

Say goodbye to gels

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I picked these up before an ultra as I have gotten a little sick of gels. The tropical punch with the caffeine helped give me the rocket fuel I needed to push through and come out at the finish line. The texture of gels had started to bug me so I figured gummies would be the next step and I certainly am not disappointed.

Salted Watermelon - not too sweet!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

nice sodium/carb replacement with a gel block that is not to sweet during long rides/climbs etc.

Skin track salvation.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Shot Bloks are an essential part of any long day in the mountains. I like the black cherry flavor for the caffeine boost, and the margarita flavor with extra sodium is great for trail running on super hot summer days.

Love all flavors

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I haven't found a flavor I do not like. I am NOT a gel fan so the shot blocks work great for me for sugar and quick energy when out mountain biking or hiking.

Shot Blocks

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Love this flavor, perfect for stashing 2-3 in my sons jersey pocket during his MTB races.

Goodness squared

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Picked up the tropical flavor this go-around as we haven't tried them, and no surprise, we enjoy them!
Just like the other flavors we have tried in the Shot Bloks these didn't disappoint. The flavor is great and the caffeine helps get us to the end of the ride or the finish line in my sons case.
Grab a box, grab a blok and be happy!

Easily digestible calories!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are an easy and tasty way to get the calories in you while on the bike! The Salted Watermelon and Ginger Ale flavors are surprisingly refreshing. Do not let your friends know you are carrying, they will try and get at your stash the entire trip. Also, hide from the kids, they are always after my "bike snacks" now.

Chewy energy

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My only gripe is that they can be difficult to open with one hand/teeth while riding your bike. However they are really easy to eat two at a time and I will use one package on a 50 mile bike ride and it is almost like you can feel the energy kick in. I like that Clif uses a variety of flavors as well. I take them mountain biking and road biking. I like to keep an emergency stash in my backpack or saddle bag just in case!

Tasty Trail Gummies

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These square gummies are so good on the trail! Adds a little pep to your step. I like all the fruity flavors that I've tried, and the caffeine ones are genius. I only wish I could get a mixed box of flavors. Also, thankfully these are made without gelatin, so unlike most gummies they are vegetarian-friendly!

Great flavor!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've pretty much tried all the Shot Blocks and loved them all. I'm now getting more of them as the youngest has picked up the sport and we go through them constantly. They work great, easy to swallow and doesn't have any side effects on either one of us.

These are Amazing!!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got the fruit punch flavor with 25mg of caffeine and they taste so good you wanna eat the whole package. Plus they're packed with energy. My favorite energy chew out there by far.

They work

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

They are the only solid food I can get down at race pace in the heat. They were the majority of calories I ate for my last 100 mile mountain bike race and although not gourmet dining they got me through.

Caffeeeeeeine! - Black Cherry

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love coffee, tea, and caffeine in general, but when camping/climbing/hiking, I'm never able to just make another cup in the middle of the day. Enter the black cherry flavored bloks!

If you eat the whole package, 100mg caffeine, or pretty much a cup o joe. A great pick me up while out there getting after it.

fits small...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I like this candy. Because it can be passed off as not candy. It's a performance enhancer. I go with the black cherry.

Blok Up

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Do you want to ride faster, climb stronger, and be the envy of all of your friends on the boot pack? If you said yes, you'll need some Shot Bloks to help you get there. Delicious, easy to consume on the go, and even offering a little bit of caffeine in some flavors, it is the best way to get that extra sugar boost when you need it.

not to bad

    Great for if my energy level is getting low, but not sure if I like them or not. For me it as a different taste that I'm not use to.

    Fast Energy, Tastes Great

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've had a bunch of different energy chews and I have to say I like Cliff's version best so far. They taste just like normal fruit snacks with no weird after taste or anything like that. They come in a nice compact block tube and are easy to throw in any bike pack. Strawberry is BOMB!!
