CLIF Bar Energising Me!

I am not sure if it’s the change of weather but I am always feeling pretty tired, I do not wake up with a spring in my step but instead want to stay tucked up warm under the duvet hibernating!  During the day I have the occasional slump when I tend to reach for the caffeine to give me a much-needed boost, but even then its quite short lived.  So I was only too happy to review CLIF Bar from Healthy Food Brands and see if they could top up my energy levels!

Taking the boys from one activity to the next, doing relief work in the school canteen, keeping up with my blog deadlines and doing some “token” housework leaves me feeling exhausted by the weekend.  The boys want to adventure and explore after a week stuck in school so I cannot stay in bed recovering!  We like to go on long walks and get plenty of fresh air.

The boys do not need any extra energy but they still wanted to taste the CLIF Bar flavours.  We cut them up into pieces so everyone could sample a bit of each one.  There are six flavours in total and they do sound delicious.  Chocolate Chip, Crunchy Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, Blueberry Crisp, Chocolate Almond Fudge and White Chocolate Macadamia Nut.  We all had our own particular favourite by the end of the tasting session.

I really enjoyed the Oatmeal Raisin Walnut one.  It was very tasty but also quite a nutritious snack.  The ideal size to take on those hikes up a mountain or just to stop yourself falling asleep at your computer mid afternoon!  Each bar is packed with vitamins so you really do keep going (a bit like the Duracell bunny!).  At £1.60 a bar they might sound more expensive than your regular snack but these offer so much more.  The organic oats are very filling, so your less likely to want to reach for something else immediately after and it’s a slower release of energy so hopefully no more sneaky naps half way through the day!

The only one we did not all get to share was the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut hubbie wolfed this down all by himself before we had a look in!!!
