CLIF Fruit Smoothie Filled Energy Bars Save The Day

Do you posses strong energy bar game?  You’d know if you did.

Arriving at the trailhead with some friends everyone starts off on the hike and after a while stop for a snack.  Busting open your food is there envy afoot as others stare upon your snack pack? Or is it more like snears of laughter as you sheepishly slide out a soggy day old Subway and begin munching?

Recently on a ski trip to the Tetons the temps were horribly cold yet provided endlessly deep powder.  The usual salami and cheese just wasn’t providing the edge that is so welcome on long backcountry days in the cold.  Breaking open the energy bar turned out to be exactly what the body was craving. The bar was delicious and refreshing with CLIF Bar’s usual slow release all day energy, however this one also packed an instant punch of nutritious smoothie ingredients (nut butters, seeds, fruit and more) for some much needed energy to get up and go.

The combo was perfect and gave those legs just the boost they needed to rip the skins and dive into the deep end of the powder pool. Racing back to the truck with hoots and hollers galore it wasn’t long till we were driving back to town for some dinner but couldn’t help snacking on another smoothie filled bar while in route.  These nuggets of goodness are definitely worth a try, you should start seeing them soon. Get out there, enjoy the snow and don’t forget to pack your favourite energy foods too!
