Cliff Mojo Bars: Review

The kind people at Clif Bar & Company offered to send me some free samples of their new Mojo bars to review.  I turn down a lot of review opportunities, but I have always enjoyed the regular Clif bars, and am always looking for new, healthy snack ideas for work.  Disclosure:  These products were provided to me free of charge, all opinions are my own.

The bars are made with 70% organic ingredients.  They are also a good source of fiber, and are low glycemic.  Like all Clif products they are gluten-free and trans-fat free, with no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavours or synthetic preservatives.  They each have 4-5 grams of protein.  Each bar is 200 calories or less, so they are perfect for a light snack and energy boost mid-afternoon. 

The new Mojo bars come in three flavour, including:

Coconut Almond Peanut

This one was really good, as I love coconut!
 Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond

It was pretty good.  I liked the big chunks of chocolate, but I am not a big fan of fruit in bars, so I'd choose one of the other two more often.
Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt

This was my favourite!!
My favourite thing about these bars are the big chunks of organic, dark chocolate.  The texture is great.  I liked all three bars, but my favourite was the dark chocolate almond sea salt, because I love the combination of sweet and salty.  If you have a chocolate craving, these are a healthy way to satisfy that craving.

Have you ever had a Clif bar?  Have you tried the new Clif Mojo bars?

I actually did not realize that Clif bars are gluten free! I haven't had them before as for some reason I thought they had gluten in them. I will have to give them a try!

The regular Clif bars might have gluten ... not sure about those ... but these new MoJo ones don't 😊
