Love Clif Bars? Well you’re going to love the protein packed Clif Builder’s even more.
Cliff bars have always been high on our list for quick pick me up snacks. But they weren’t packed with protein like most fitness enthusiasts need and crave. Luckily that tiny problem has been eliminated for good with Clif Builders in many delicious flavors like: Chocolate, Chocolate Chip, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookies ‘n Cream, Crunchy Peanut Butter, S’mores and Vanilla Almond. We have personally tried Chocolate Chip, S’mores and Crunchy Peanut Butter for this review.
Taste – 8/10
One thing that you can clearly see is that Clif Bar offers a ton of flavors that you can try and enjoy. The bars have a great texture like a chewy cookie with some crunch. The flavors will obviously vary with each individual bar, but they all taste as good as we imagined. The only drawback might be the sweetness of the bar. It’s not overly sweet compared to any other kind of protein bar but be wary if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth.
Nutrition – 10/10
This is where the Clif Builder really shines. The ingredients are all very fitting and everything you would expect from a health conscious company like Clif Bar. Almost all of the ingredients are organic with no unnecessary artificial fillers with names you can’t pronounce. It’s packed full of healthy minerals and vitamins and most importantly, 20 gram of protein which mostly comes from soy protein isolate (not concentrate). This makes it perfect for a pre or post workout snack to go.
Convenience – 10/10
Few things can be more convenient than a nutritious individually wrapped protein bar. Though it’s not designed to be a meal replacement bar we would go so far to recommend it as a breakfast on the go for when you don’t have time to make a healthy heart morning breakfast. We would most definitely stash some in our gym bag or our car for those emergency guilt free snack cravings though.
Value – 9/10
Most people are accustomed to the expensive protein bar that is more of a luxury than a daily go to snack. But no need to worry about that for the Clif Builder’s. They are priced very reasonable at $1.75 each if you buy a box of 12, so stock up on all the different flavors to save some money on buying them individually in stores!
Overall - 9.25/10
Clif Builder’s are definitely the protein bar to go for if you’re more conscious about healthy ingredients as well as a fatter wallet. Give the Clif Builder’s a try if you’re looking to try a new protein bar or just a healthy convenient snack, you definitely won’t be dissapointed.
