Clif Organic Energy Food

Clif Organic Energy Food
First off, let me say kudos to Clif for making more and more of their products either non-GMO (good) or organic (better).
Clif has come out with a new line of energy food that’s aimed at those of us that spend more time on the road or trail. The easy opening, squeeze and eat pouches are made either savory (suggested for 2 or more hours of activity) or sweet (an hour or more).
Each recipe is gluten-free and does not contain partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives. All recipes source ingredients that are not genetically engineered.

CLIF Organic Energy Food is available in four flavors:

  • Pizza Margherita – so much better than I expected; I’m not even a fan of Pizza Margherita in real life, but this was pretty good, lots of tomato flavor. I could definitely see eating this after a few hours of effort, happily.
  • Sweet Potato with Sea Salt – not a bad flavor, but totally unexpected, since it was really nutty. Nice saltiness but still that nuttiness was strange.
  • Banana Beet with Ginger – another okay blend, bit on the sweet side; adding a bunch more ginger would give it some character and some welcome bite.
  • Banana Mango with Coconut – straight up dessert, really tasty; this would be a good complement to the Pizza Margherita.
All flavors are now available at sports retailers nationwide (SRP: Sweet (90g) $2.29, Savory (120g) $2.99).

  1. And did I tell you we went to Vino Velo while in wine country? It's Clif's winery–great stuff and a really fun store front full of cycling memorabilia.

  2. I definitely get sick of sweet gels and bars after a while in a long race, but I'm a little skeptical of how I'd like some of these flavors. Might try them for free, but I probably wouldn't buy them.
