And they make for the perfect afternoon snack.

You’d almost think you were cheating yourself with CLIF Bar’s line of granola bars that come in six great flavors and taste like cookies from your local bakery.
CLIF Crunch Granola Bars are 70 percent organic, so you’ll recognize everything on its ingredient list. The bars, which are vegan-friendly and don’t use dairy or eggs, are a blend of oats, rye and barley. Each offers one serving of whole grains per bar and five grams of protein.
Unlike most granola bars, these were soft to chew and didn’t feel like I was going to chip a tooth as soon as I bit into them. However, expect the bars to be just as crumbly as other granola bar. Avoid stashing them in your pocket or somewhere where it could easily fall apart – unless you want to save the crumbs for your yogurt later.
Each packet comes with two bars for a total of 180-190 calories, 4-5 grams of protein, 7-8 grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber and 27 grabs of carbs.
The verdict: A great post-run or mid-day snack or something to take along your lunchtime walk.
White Chocolate Macadamia
The white chocolate flavor overshadows the macadamia nuttiness I was hoping for.
Sweet and salty fans will like this flavor that’s not overly sweet.
Tastes just like a homemade oatmeal cookie.
It has just the right amount of chocolate chips to satisfy your chocolate chip cookie craving.
Chocolate Peanut Butter
There is a hint of chocolate but it’s more of a peanut butter flavor than a combination of the two.
Reminiscent of a blueberry pie except it’s light and sweet.
