“I have a love-hate relationship with Clif Bars,” says Fuller. After tasting another new Clif product in our lineup, he dismissed it as an expensive “rice crispy treat.” But he found that one of the newest company's newest products, the Sierra Trail Mix, due out in June, had a pleasing chocolate and oat flavor. And we have to say that this 250-calorie beast did its job in replacing calories like nothing else we tried. In comparison with Kind’s chocolate and sea salt number, the Clif had more carbs, more protein, and less fat. With a whopping 22 grams of sugar, it was certainly capable of giving us jitters. But after a long bike ride or hilly run, it was the only thing that satisfied.
