Clif Bar is making three seasonal varieties of their eponymous energy snacks and I recently got a chance to try all three. Since taste is a really subjective call, I decided to enlist mudhunny and our 4-year-old daughter in this shootout. May the best bar win!
Mudhunny ranked this #1 in the test and it was definitely my second favorite of the bunch. Our 4-year-old liked the name of this one the best and while she still gave it a thumbs up, she ranked it #3 of 3.
Living in the southeast, we have very high standards for our pecan pie (pronounced pee-kan). This was my favorite of the bunch; our daughter rated it her favorite too while mudhunny ranked it #2. This one is nutty and sweet with just the right amount of texture.
Spiced Pumpkin Pie
After tasting the Spiced Pumpkin Pie Clif Bar myself at the Decatur Commuter Breakfast last week, I thought for sure our 4-year-old would spit this one out, but she ended up eating the whole thing and rated it #2 of 3. Both mudhunny and I ranked it #3 and honestly it’s the only one I probably won’t purchase this year. The pumpkin spice is really overwhelming–almost bitter–so unless you love pumpkin spice, pass on this one.
Winner: Pecan Pie.
