CLIF Bar continues to make a wide variety of nutritional energy foods for active outdoor individuals, and they’ve added more to their delicious chain of products with the MOJO Fruit & Nut and MOJO Dark Chocolate snack bars. These gluten-free snack bars will keep you nourished throughout your day whether you’re out mountain biking on the trails, climbing some new routes, or hiking through the backcountry.
CLIF MOJO Fruit & Nut and CLIF MOJO Dark Chocolate snack bars are made with 70-percent organic ingredients that are not only good for you, but they’re good for the planet. The consumption of organic ingredients reduces exposure to chemical fertilizers and synthetic pesticides. To date, the total organic ingredient usage for CLIF Bar & Company totals more than 425 million pounds.
There are five flavors in the MOJO Fruit & Nut and MOJO Dark Chocolate line. The delectably delicious flavors are: Cranberry Almond, Wild Blueberry Almond, Coconut Almond Peanut, Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt, and Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond. The making of the snack bars took the joined forces of CLIF athletes and foodies in the CLIF Kitchen that were eager to build a better snack bar by carefully selecting and combining high-quality ingredients that taste great and are nutritious. All are 200 calories or less, low glycemic, and a good source of fiber. They contain zero grams of trans fat and do not contain partially-hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives. These bars are the real deal.
While climbing down in Indian Creek, Utah, if you’re familiar with off-width and crack climbing, you know you’re exerting a lot of energy jamming your hands, legs and sometimes your whole body into the cracks in order to scale up the mountain. I took the CLIF MOJO Fruit & Nut and MOJO Dark Chocolate bars down with me, and after a few climbs, I was ready for some nourishment. One of the first bars I tore into was the Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond as I’m a huge dark chocolate fan. Let’s just say the bar was gone in about two minutes. It was the perfect snack bar, and the ingredients combined to make this bar were the perfect combination. It gave me the fuel I needed to last through a few more climbs.
Throughout the two days of crack and off-width climbing, there was probably only one bar left out of the stash we took. They were that good. There was some serious, great energy nourishment throughout the days of climbing and very happy bellies.
CLIF just keeps coming out with more and more fantastic creations, and with all the selections of energy food, there’s bound to be something that everyone will love for their outdoor adventures. I’d highly recommend taking the MOJO Fruit & Nut and MOJO Dark Chocolate bars on your next excursion. It’s a healthy way of quickly satisfying that appetite without interrupting your extreme adrenaline-filled day(s) outside.
CLIF MOJO Fruit & Nut and CLIF MOJO Dark Chocolate snack bars are available at your local Whole Foods stores, REI, and Momentum Climbing Gym.
