Clif Bar Product Review and Giveaway

The lovely people at Clif Bar contacted me about doing a review of a couple of new flavours and, since I love Clif - I leapt at the opportunity.

These were new flavours that will soon be available wherever Clif Bars can be found. White chocolate and Macadamia Nut Crunch Granola Bars and Coconut Chocolate Chip Clif Bars

Luckily they sent enough that I could employ a few tests with my hubby and the twinners too :)

My thoughts:

The Clif Bar was more coconut than chocolate, which was great.  I love a nice coconut flavor.  It was really sweet so kinda felt like I was eating a big coconut cookie with chocolate drizzle on it.  Yum!

The granola bar was alot like a Nature Valley Granola Bar in form factor - meaning it was  2 crunchy granola bars in a single package.  Considerably sweeter than a Nature Valley bar, though.

Overall - I really loved both flavours, even if I did find them a bit on the sweet side.  I would totally buy them again.

Hubby's thoughts:

He loved the granola bar so much he had to text me to tell me his thoughts immediately

(he got the name of the bar wrong - the Clif Builder bars are protein bars - but he definitely meant these Crunch bars)

Pretty sure he'd like me to find a case of them so he can have them every day.  As for the Clif Bar - he's not a big fan of the Cif Bar texture when he's had them in the past - so this one is still sitting in the pantry.   I'll probably eat it soon (or use it to bribe the kiddos)

The preschoolers weigh in:

Just a few of the comments that passed during the snack time taste test...

(Yes - both girls ARE in dire need of haircuts - don't judge)
  • Momma - that was a yummy bar!
  • Can I have more chocolatey cookie, momma?
  • More bar please!
  • More cookie please!
  • This is a really yummy cookie, momma!
I'd say these are a hit all around.
