A couple of weeks ago I won a giveaway over at Hiking Lady for a Clif Bar Gift Pack. Hiking Lady is one of my favorite blogs and I visit her a lot. If you're a guy, don't let the lady in the title keep you from visiting - she has tons of great information and gear reviews on her site that are useful for both men and women. Her "Hiking 101" section is packed with helpful information on all sorts of hiking equipment. Her gear reviews are honest and straight forward. And... she has great give-aways, which leads me to the Clif Bars.
I've eaten Clif Bars before and I'm a big fan, so I was excited to win the giveaway and get this Gift Pack that was filled with fun Clif Bar products....
First up was the huge frisbee. This is easily the largest and most sturdy frisbee I've ever seen.
I really like the water bottle. The shape is nice and it's a perfect size. This one is going to the gym with me and it fits perfectly in my backpack water bottle holder....
The Clif Bar carabiner is going right onto my backpack. There are a 101different uses for carabiners. (hmmm, future post maybe?)
And last, but most importantly, 2 Clif Bars - one white chocolate macadamia nut (which happens to be my personal favorite) and a blueberry crisp. This is the white chocolate macadamia nut......
In case you're not familiar with Clif Bars, they're energy bars made with 70% organic ingredients. They use an assortment of oats, dried fruit and nuts to make up the different bars. They have a very nice, chewy consistency to them. Very moist! The bars are made with a mix of carbohydrates, proteins and fiber. They can be eaten at any time - before, during or after an activity and they give you a natural energy boost and there's no "sugar crash" either. There are no dairy products in their bars and they are vegan friendly. I like to eat them after I leave the gym and I usually carry a couple in my backpack to eat while out on the trail.
Clif Bar offers a wide variety of snacks like protein bars and granola bars and they have lots of yummy sounding flavors like chocolate chip, peanut butter or oatmeal raisin. One of the flavors that I'm anxious to try is the Back Cherry Almond. Doesn't that sound wonderful? I haven't seen that one in the store yet, but I'll be watching for it.
The Clif Bar Company contributes 1% of sales to Environmental Organizations. They give back to the community by donating employee time to help around the country with different projects and causes. Plus they strive to reduce their ecological footprint in all aspects of their company - and what they are doing must be working because their efforts have been recognized across the country. Please go check out their website to get more in-depth information on all they do. It will be well worth your time.
