Clif Bars Review



I was so excited to get to review these next new Clif Bars called Kit's Organic Fruit and Nut Bar. I know you have seen them around and they have so many different brands that are under the Clif Bar name, such as the Luna, Clif Kid, Clif Shot, Clif Crunch and many more. The ones I got to review were all the Kit's Organic Bars:

1. Chocolate Almond Coconut
2. Cashew
3. Berry Almond
4. Peanut Butter


I have to admit that the one I loved the most was the Chocolate Almond Coconut! Because I am a chocolate freak and a coconut freak on top of loving almonds, so it was a no brainer. It was so darn good that instead of just eating half of it like I intended and then was gonna eat the rest another day, well, that plan went out the window and I ate the whole bar in one sitting. They are all considered:

**Certified organic
**Soy free
**Dairy free
**Gluten free
**Scored higher in consumer testing than the leading fruit & nut bar in flavor, texture & appearance



My next favorite was the Cashew because I am a huge fan of nuts! Doesn't matter to me which kind either, I love just about any nut that I have come in contact with. And it really does taste like Cashews, which I wasn't expecting. I thought they would be like a fake flavor but these really do punch quite a bit of cashews! They used these products in making the Cashew flavor:

Organic dates, organic cashews, organic almonds and sea salt.


I would then say that the Peanut Butter Bar was a good choice also. I love Peanut Butter but not as the main flavor so by adding in some other flavors along with the Peanut Butter, I was able to eat the bar. I would have added some chocolate flavoring but that is because I am a chocolate freak, otherwise, if Peanut Butter is your thing, then you will love this new bar.


The Berry Almond Bar is pretty good, too. I am just not into fruit tasting snack bars or even the energy ones. I guess because I am not able to eat fruits because they make my IBS worse, so I have shunned them in the past. I did take a few small bites so that I could tell you about them. They have these items in them:
Organic Dates, Organic Almonds, Organic Barberries, Organic Bilberries, Sea Salt

So, it looks like Clif Bars have managed to find something that everyone likes because we are different! I would never use a product that is one stop for all things. Food just does not work that way. I love the variety of different types of food and sure do enjoy making them when I could.

Here is a statement issued about their policy:

Peanut Butter is my thing as is Organic. I'll give this a try.
