I have tried a handful of granola, protein, and energy bars through the years.  While on a diet or just looking for something different to eat, I've tried plenty.  We got a coupon at Krogers for $2 off a box of Cliff Granola Bars.  They were on sale and you really can't go wrong with peanut butter crunchy granola bars.  Without sounding like an add for Clif, the granola bars were hands down the best I've ever had.  The website boast about using organic ingredients but I don't really care.. they are that good!  They were not hard like Nature Valleys bars and just have a nice texture to them.  My only issue with the granola bars is that they are expensive.  $2.50 a box on sale and you get 10 bars where Nature Valley you get 12 bars for $2-2.50.  That is the main reason I stick with Kroger or Nature Valley, price.

Clif Builder's Protein Bars are not to shabby either.  Come in 8 dif flavors and tend to be priced right with other brands.  Same goes for the original Clif Bar.  They just came out with Crunchy Peanut Butter which is very yummy.  I put one of these in my pocket and just took little bites of it during my 10 mile jog a few weeks ago.  Did it work?  No idea but I did manage to jog 10 miles.  It also didn't upset my belly during the run either.  That is a double bonus for me.  These come in over 20 different flavors with a  few of them being seasonal (Peppermint Stick).  I do enjoy getting behind a company who sponsors athletes in various sports.  That and I also like the color red, so I would have no problem wearing one of their shirts.  You hear that Clif?  Im an XL or 2X now.
