I like the new Nectar bars. And I also liked "Iced" series (mint) but can't seem to find them around here anymore. As far as the regular Clif Bars go, I usually go for the peanut butter.

The mint "Iced" series was not that popular. My local store in SoCal (Trader Joes) stopped stocking them due to low sales. They ordered them just for me, but were not a great seller.

I'm not a big fan of Clif Bars. I do really like the Orange Cream and the Razberry Sorbet clif shots though. I really like the new Strawberry Clif Shots Bloks as well.

I thought all Clif Bars were pretty much organic. Are you talking about the Nectar bars? I love those things. They're a little pricier and a bit harder to find. I can get them at the local PCC or Whole Foods. The PCC usually has them at $1.29/bar. They're really not an energy bar though but they are the best tasting of the Clif Bars.

Are those bite-sized versions of Clif Bars? The Clif equivalent of Tim Bits?

They are actually pretty good. They remind me a lot of gummy bears.

Chocolate Almond for me, too. One of my roommates and I had a rather long-running argument over the value of Clif Bars, lasting much of the spring and summer. Not sure how, but he's picked up a rather automatic reaction against them. Personally, they're pretty much the only thing I go for. But, then, he's also got this thing against chocolate and peanut butter, as well....

I like the "Complete Meal" bar: first it tastes like tomato soup, then it tastes like Roast Beef with a baked potato, then blueberry pie. Unfotunately, when I get to the blueberry pie part I turn blue and start to swell up like a .....

Oops! Wrong story!

I just stick with the peanut butter. I find all the bars to be on the dry side.

Back in the 70's we buy refillable backpacking tubes and fill them with a mixture of peanut butter and honey. Whether or not it was beneficial, I don't know. sure tasted good.
