Clif Bar & Company has launched a new double-layered fruit and nut bar called the CLIF C. These snack bars offer a nice alternative to the more substantial CLIF Bar to include in your backcountry food stash or for your mid-workout pick me up.
The CLIF C bar comes in four flavors: Raspberry, Apple, Blueberry and Cherry Pomegranate. Each fruit and nut bar is made with nine all-natural and organic ingredients. The fruit and nut bars may be a viable snack option for vegans or those who need to follow a gluten free diet as none of the ingredients use wheat, soy, dairy or gluten (though Clif Bar & Company does not certify them as such).
The CLIF C starts with a moist and chewy crust of organic dates, roasted almonds and macadamia nuts (so don't share them with your dog!). On top is a layer of all-natural fruit and fruit juices. A pinch of sea salt enhances the fruit and nut flavors and finally a sprinkling of crunchy roasted almonds tops off the bar.
Each CLIF C fruit and nut bar contains 130 calories and provides one full serving of fruit. The bars offer 4 grams or 16% of the Recommended Daily Value (RDV) of fiber with those organic dates and only 4.5 grams of fat. CLIF C is also low in sodium at just 1% of RDV.
The CLIF C bars retail for $1.39 and are available online, in natural food and select grocery stores nationwide.
