Taste & texture
Despite Clif Bars being one of the most well- known energy bars in the world, the design itself hasn’t changed much since its original formation in Clif Bar founder Gary Erickson’s kitchen.
This gives it the closest impression to a homemade bar compared to any other on the test.
The taste of each bar is delicious and they come in a wide range of flavours, including white chocolate macadamia, crunchy peanut butter, and blueberry crisp to name a few.
Despite the taste, the bar is a little bit dry, so you may need a little bit of liquid to help wash it down when out on a ride.

Each Clif bar contains 36 grams of carbohydrates and seven grams of fat.
Opening the bar while on the move is pretty easy, and it is a decent enough size and weight to sit in your back pocket without feeling like a hindrance or getting lost among clothes and other personal items.
