    Nutrition - Cliff and other bars on sale $10/box of 12 bars.

    Some folks can maintain 24mph and drink Pabst morning, day, and night. Beer does have carbs after all.

    Drugstore.com has a special on CLIFF bars. These are my favorite, and at $10/case it comes out to about $.85 cents per bar. There's free shipping on orders over $25.

    goto http://www.drugstore.com/user/promo....FI-0-EVGRGD-FI

    ...I couldn't figure out where else to post this, sorry if this is the wrong thread.

    I found a bag full of Cliff bars while I was cleaning this morning. I was pretty happy to find them, since I'm not going to be bringing a lunch to work for the rest of the week...

    Cliff Bars don't do well after a week kicking around a bag, I've found. But I bet most bars don't.

    Target's usually got Clif Bars and regular Power Bars for under a buck. Check the nutrition aisle in the pharmacy section. I think I got a bunch for 94 cents a piece last time I was there.

    Clif bars are the only energy bar that when I eat I think to myself "GOD DAMN THIS IS SO GOOD"

    Also keep in mind I am usually starving and in the middle/finishing a long ride when I eat them.

    +1 for Larabars. I'm pretty pleased that they're more widely available these days. Last summer, I had a organic farmer who had a shop out in Illinois somewhere and stocked them have him bring me a stash once every two weeks to the weekly Farmers Market. He was great.

    But now I can get them at Trader Joe's or Whole Foods (though TJ's has all the flavours I don't like).

    Clife bars are decent -- they've done me well on rides but a little too... thick. In the dead of summer, it's tough trying to keep that down.

    i like the lara bars too, but they're on the pricy side (as measured by calories/$) and they're not that calorific per serving...

    Clif shots, dudes. If any of you are eating bars before/during races, you're going about it all wrong.

    The new-ish Cashew Cookie Larabar is amazing. I'm hooked. It may've supplanted the Apple Pie.

    As far as Clif Bars and other more processed energy bars go, Consumer Reports did a study a few years ago and looked at what was on the market. Their pick for best overall energy bar, in terms of price, nutritional value, etc, was a Snickers.

    Haven't tried the larabars yet, sometimes I have a cliffbar with PB on top. (eew). Bananas are good too, same way and it suits me fine. Or, in the summer I'll buy a bunch of nanas and peel and freeze 'em. Peel, put in a ziploc, and freeze. Tastes almost as good as ice cream. Well, ok, maybe not almost as good but still good.

    BTW Larabars are $30/case at drugstore.com, cliffbars are $10/case. I was trying to point out that cliff bars cheap and good and shipping is free. Check the first thread mssg for the link, or just goto the web site. Shippng on larabars is free too. My hope is that if enough people keep ordering nutrition bars from them, they'll have incentive to keep prices low.

    In NYC, most places charge $2/bar for a cliff bar. Black cherry almond is pretty damn good and it even has bits of choclit in it.

    Nutella and/or peanut butter on raisin bread. Dunno if they're as good as energy bars, but they taste better.

    I like the taste of cliff bars, but I guess Im really cheap because its hard to justify the cost when I just did a double century with pbj and fruit and was fine. Whenever I get bars I end up eating them all real fast just because they're tasty.

    +2. Even though they occasionally smell a little rank.

    fitfuel.com has 'em on "sale" for $21/ case; still not cheap, but ten bucks off is nice.
