Review: Clif Bars..Fudge, Chocolate...Peanut Butter...

Clif Bars 'Chocolate Almond Fudge', 'White Chocolate Macadamia Nut', 'Crunchy Peanut Butter'

A selection of the tastiest vegan Clif energy bars in 'Chocolate Almond Fudge', 'White Chocolate Macadamia Nut' and 'Crunchy Peanut Butter' flavours. Helpfully illustrated with a chap climbing a cliff. We didn't have a handy cliff and so reviewed these tasty sounding bars with both feet firmly on the ground:

Clif Bars are vegan

These bars look really tasty out of the pack...these aren't 'worthy' cereal bars or diet bars...they're energy packed nutrition bombs.

Chocolate Almond Fudge

We didn't know whether to expect fudge pieces or a fudgy texture from this description, but it's the latter. Chewy, chocolatey and we guess a little bit fudgy too. You can taste the almonds which have a toasted flavour.

Despite the sugar content, these aren't too sweet. The texture of the crispy pieces is good and this is an all round great bar.

Veganoo Score: ★★★★

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut

Similar to the Luna bar we reviewed last year, but larger. The white chocolate is in small measure as a sort of drizzle topping, but you certainly get the vanilla from it. This is distinctly lighter textured than the fudge bar, with a cleaner crisp bite and a lovely syrupy chew.

You could almost feel the urge to take up mountain climbing to justify the calories to eat these delicious bars

Veganoo Score: ★★★★☆

Crunchy Peanut Butter

Our clear favourite of the three, but you've got to be a peanut lover! Really moist and chewy with a fantastic toasted peanut flavour. The taste is actually closer to peanut brittle than peanut butter, but the texture is far preferable to that teeth-breaking concoction.

This looks like a giant spoonful of peanut butter and we'd certainly beat our way to the top of any mountain to get our hands on one of these.

Veganoo Score: ★★★★★

Most, if not all of the selection of Clif bars is vegan, but you need to check the website for their vegan list if you don't trust the ingredients list. Vitamin D2 is always a giveaway that they're aiming at us vegan folk though....
