CLIF® Organic Trail Mix Bars~ Review

Disclaimer:  "CLIF® bar provided me with my 10 CLIF® Organic Trail Mix Bars for sampling and review purposes. As always, all opinions on my blog, are my own."

Life has a way of getting busy and boy has mine been a roller coaster ride of business these past few months. Being able to keep it all together and running smoothly has been my #1 priority. That and still eating healthily, while feeling like I barely have a moment to breath. For times like this, I'm all about good food on the go. Something I can bring with me, to inhale when I remember that I haven't taken the time to eat breakfast or lunch. 

Granola bars, or trail mix bars have always been a snacking staple in our house. But now that I am losing weight, exercising and watching what I eat (most of the time), I've become more cautious about these types of snacks. While many of these claim to be a healthy snack, are they really? Most are jam packed full of high fructose corn syrup and ingredients I can't even pronounce. Sure they taste good, but how good are they for you?

When I was presented with the opportunity to try the NEW CLIF® Organic Trail Mix Bars, I jumped at the chance. I had seen CLIF® Bars in stores for years and years, but had never really tried them. Being able to try their new bars, I have fallen in love with them. Not only do they taste fantastic, they also are organic, great source of fiber, healthy, vegan, vegetarian and are gluten free.

I was sent 10 bars in total, 2 of 5 NEW flavours

  • Coconut Almond Peanut
  • Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond
  • Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt
  • Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Raspberry
My favourites were the Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond and Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt. Even though I am trying to be more healthy and active, I still love chocolate and loved that I could feel good about eating it in these bars. The kids both went crazy for the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter and have requested that I buy several more. At about $1.99/bar, these could be great road trip snacks, sure to satisfy the kids BIG hunger, LOL.
