Delicious and Filling
I'm training for my first marathon and don't always have the time or the stomach for a "real" breakfast before the early morning group trainings/runs I go to. Plus I have an intolerance to many products that contain soy, so often times I've felt my options are limited. I have had no issues with these bars; they have been *perfect* for me! They don't upset my stomach nor are they too heavy for right before a walk or run - be it long, short, first thing in the morning or later in the day. They're (literally) lightweight and fit/carry quite well in the pouch of my water belt, and they don't require a lot of water-chugging to swallow them down. I've also had them during long walks/runs as well as after training and have always felt replenished and satisfied.
My favorite flavors are the Mountain Mix and Peanut Butter Pretzel. I find that they're the perfect "treat" when I'm craving something sweet - or salty - and are obviously a much healthier option than a regular candy bar, and they have the added bonus of being filling.
The only complaint I have about these is that they can get a bit sticky and/or attached to their wrapper. Other than that, I can't think of anything negative to say about them!
I am a vegetarian with diabetes, and so having sufficient vegetarian, low-glycaemic foods available can be a concern. I have found that these bars are a convenient way to keep a fast and nutritious snack around. I use them in a pinch when I don't have time for breakfast, or if I need a snack on my way to the gym, etc. I DO try to avoid having too many meal bars when backpacking. But at < 200 calories, with plenty of protein and an amazing low carbohydrate load for a meal bar-you cannot go wrong. I buy them by the box, to save a little $ and make sure that we have them on hand.
What is more, I cannot stop sharing these! I had a supply of four of these in my suitcase for a recent business trip. When my three co-workers and I got hungry on the train ride back-we devoured all four!
I've only trained the Mountain Mix and the Peanut Butter Pretzel, but they are by far my favorite bars. I love that they aren't overly sweet or rich. A little bit salty, a little bit sweet, they're awesome. They are also the perfect balance of crunchy and chewy. I often keep one or two in my purse/bag, and it's enough to tide me over when I'm hungry. I usually have one for breakfast, because I can eat it while driving and enjoy it with my coffee. They are a great buy, if you can get them on sale.
THE BEST goody bar EVER
Got one of these new Peanut Butter Pretzel bars as a freebie after the Long Beach CA Marathon Bike Tour and wow, was I ever surprised at how good it was. Some of Clif's earlier (squarer) bars were a bit like eating sweet yard clippings - required lotsa water to get 'em to go down. But this one is totally different in style and texture. Excellent taste, crunchy, not excessively sweet. I plan to buy a whole box, and maybe one more of a different flavor. GO CLIF !!!
Don't leave home without them!
I've loved Clif bars for year, but honestly the "regular" bars are a bit too much of a bar for me. These Mojos are perfect - just the right combination of sweet, salt, crunch, and gooey. True, they get a bit sticky after they've sat in your backpack all day in the desert but that's not really a problem. I take them everywhere - ideal if you're a long way from anywhere and need fuel when there's none around.
I stock up on these when going on a hiking, boarding, or climbing trip. After about a couple hours, pull a few out for everyone and I gotta say it is the best snack on the mountain, on the trials, etc. My cousin got so hooked when I gave her one that she eats them all the time at home too.
The Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars are YUMMY
This is one of the best tasting bars on the market today! It's a nice blend of salty/sweet and the peanut butter is a good dose of protein. The travel well, stand up to heat and still taste delicious even after being smashed around in your gym bag for a few days. Worth every penny!
Burned out on regular Clif Bars
My hiking buds and I were big on Clif bars at first, but found them too heavy to carry on a 5 day AT hike and too much bar. The Mojos are lighter, crunchier and don't feel like you ate a whole meal like their big brothers. Good mix of flavors too.
Another delectable Clif treat: PB Pretz
I've liked these for a long time; I just wish they were cheaper! Peanut Butter and Pretzel is an awesome combination. This is another "Check the nutrition info"; I doubt they're too healthy. Highly recommend, they're delicious. I'm not sure they're intended as a serious energy bar; they're like candy.
Yummy on the road!
These are a great treat when you need a lift! I especially love them while hiking or cycling for a quick boost of energy and flavor. Especially like the ones with pretzels and chocolate. Great alternative to the candy bar while at work, too!
