Poll - What energy bar do you favor?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I have been partial to Clif bars lately, but I will admit, I tend to buy boxes of whatever is on sale and looks good. Last week, I picked up 4 boxes of Clif bars on sale for $3/box, because they were close to the expiration date.

I like the Luna Bars but it's easier to find Clif and Power Bars on sale around here.

I was a big Clif bar fan until I discovered the Mojo bar (made by the same people). It's a little salty, which seems to go down well on hot rides. So now I vary between Clif chocolate almond and Mojo honey peanut. Mmmm

I have tried many bars on the market, but I tend to go back to Clif. They are always on sale for $.99 at Whole Foods, so that makes them cheaper than anything else, plus they have better ingredients than the other bars. Has anyone tried the 'Clif Shot' products?

I have tried almost all of those, but my favorite are now balance bars.

I stick to Apple Cinnamon flavored Power Bars. They're bland but not in a bad way; they taste kind of like dried out fig newtons. And there's no chocolate, so you don't have to worry about melted chocolate getting everywhere.

I like the Clif bars better than anything else I've tried. Trader Joe's has them usually for $.98 apiece. It doesn't hurt that a guy on my route works for them, too. He and his wife gave me a box for Christmas.

I prefer Clif Bars, but they're rarely on sale so I usually get Power Bars. The grocery store often sells them for 99 cents each. I voted for both.

Spoken like a true OCP leader. Even the energy bar has to look good.

Oh, and I like Clif by a long-shot. A lot of those have milk products in them, which make no sense to me. Odwalla bars are good, too, but they're owned by Coca-cola now so I try to avoid them if I can.

The best are any good home-made recipe.

Luna Bars are "The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women" -- Do some of you gentlemen eat it? It tastes good, anyways.

I do when they're available and its not too hot out. I don't like getting all their gooiness all over my fingers and my bar tape.

I have always been a Clif fan. I started on Clif bars when I used to go on multi-day backpacking trips. Once i get used to something it is hard to get me to switch.

Luna's are good. Clif's are the best.

Am I like the only one who likes Peak Bars?
