Nutrition is as important as any factor when riding. Cliff bars give me that extra needed punch when I need it on my long rides. Oatmeal is my favourite. Cliff Bars, FTW.Report this review
The consistency of the bar makes it difficult to eat, and the chewiness doesn't help either. The taste is just OK, and the bar does give you a needed boost, but it's just so difficult to eat because it's too sweet/ "food-like" in the middle of a ride, so I prefer a gel.Report this review
Cliff bar is always a great bet for a nice long ride, just not so great for racing or before a race. They are a bit hard for me to digest and make my stomach hurt.Report this review
This is a great little bar to have on rides over 100km when you don't want to rely on gels alone. They are a good option when you want something a little more substantial. Flavours are always subjective but I can highly recommend chocolate chip - it seems more like an indulgence than a functional energy food. Make sure you wash down with a little water, otherwise they can be a bit heavy going.
As a bonus they source as many organic/natural ingredients as they can and carry this through as many products in the range as possible. Once you try these you will keep coming back to Clif.
After a trip to the US i discovered Clif bars and have been hooked ever since and glad that PBK now offer them.
I love the fact that they're (mostly) organic and that they are actually palatable! For once they're not so chewy you think you're going to lose a tooth and not so hard that you... think you're going to loose another tooth. Taste is spot on, being sweet but not too sweet.
Performance wise it's great as a 'meal replacement' when out on say a lunch time ride making sure you don't go hungry. Also nice to have something solid rather than just eating gels on a ride too.
Overall: great price, great taste and a good amount of energy.
... The chocolate chip Clif Bar is chewy, not crunchy, and the 'chips' of chocolate are small and chewy too. But that's not to say this bar doesn't taste delicious. It's juicy and rich - and chocolate-flavoured, naturally - more like a slab of firm chocolate cake
For me the one minor thing is they can be a little dry and it takes a good couple of drinks to wash them down. But the natural ingredients are a big plus for me. I can rely on them to be good on the stomach and provide lasting energy.Report this review
