The Clif Crunch Granola Bar can make a good after-workout snack. The bars are 70 percent organic and provide one serving of organic whole grains per bar and five grams of protein. They are as crumbly as you expect a granola bar to be, so I don't recommend these as a take-along snack in your pocket or pack. It's best to eat them while standing still.

Taste, Chewability and Packability

These bars are very tasty, and designed to have creamy chips and nuts included.

Flavors include chocolate chip, honey oat, peanut butter, and white chocolate macadamia nut. My assistant reviewer, Rich Bumgardner, said he didn't detect any chocolate flavor in the white chocolate variety.

How do these pack for active walkers, runners and bikers? They are crumbly, and I think they may break up when carried in a pack or pocket. You really wouldn't want to eat them on the move due to the crumbs.

The bar's chewing consistency is good. They are crunchy and pleasant to eat, but do require chewing. You wouldn't want to try to eat these while breathing hard while exercising. These are best saved for after your workout.

Energy and Ingredients

Each packet has two bars, which is the serving size. The two bars have a total of 180-190 calories, with 4-5 grams of protein, 7-8grams of fat, 3 grams of fiber and 27 grams of carbs.

Clif Crunch granola bars are 70% organic, and you can understand everything on its short ingredient list.

Bottom Line: I think these are a good snack bar for walkers looking for an after-workout snack. It has a good profile as a recovery snack. But I think they aren't the best choice for packing along due to their crumbly nature.
