Snack Product Review

Product: Clif Bar's Crunchy Peanut Butter Bar

Taste: Peanut Butter-y.  Obviously. But in all seriousness, they have a strong oat flavor as well.  The bar is not as sweet as I would have thought.  It is less sweet than commercial peanut butter and has more of a peanut taste.  

Texture: Although they are titled "Crunchy Peanut Butter Bars" these bars are chewy, not crunchy.  There is a little crunch effect from the peanuts, but in general the chew is much more present.

Nutritional Value: 240 calories. 11 g protein.  6 g fat. 41 g carbs (21 g sugar, 5 g fiber). Contains organic soybean and oats. 10% Vit A, 50% Vit C, 25% Calcium, 10% Vit D, 50% Vit E

Where to Buy: Grocery stores, convenience stores, organic super markets. 
Clif Bar Store (12 bars $15.00)
Amazon  (24 bars $22.20)

When to Eat:  A Crunchy Peanut Butter Bar would be ideal right before a workout.  They are high in protein and carbs which will help you power through and sustain energy.  I would not advise eating a bar at night, because it does give you a lot of energy and may prevent you from sleeping. 

Overall Grade: A-
