The return of the Clif Bar Seasonal Flavors

This is a sponsored post. I received six  seasonal flavored bars from Clif Bar to share. I am receiving no further compensation for this post. The opinions expressed are solely my own and I did not promise a favorable review.

It is that time of year again. The time when Iced Gingerbread, Pecan Pie, and Spiced Pumpkin Pie Clif Bars hit the shelves and I am excited to pay the goodness forward and share one of each flavor with one of you!

When I first posted a picture of these bars via social media a follower asked me why I choose Clif Bar. I was completely honest and said these bars were given to me and went on to express I am not a huge bar eater. Why? Often the bars taste or texture turn me off. I have tried many brands and I don't want something super sugary and I don't want to feel like I am eating cardboard. These bars are different. They are actually quite yummy.

First, straight from the mouth of my Clif Bar contact, "CLIF Bars are made with 70 percent organic ingredients and are a good source of protein. All Clif Bar & Company foods have zero grams trans fat, and do not contain partially-hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or synthetic preservatives. But they are not dairy free."

Yikes! If you know me I am a dairy free type of gal but don't you fret. I went through this same discussion a year ago when talking to the company and although not all of their bars are dairy free, these were...at least a year ago. I must confess, I didn't read the labels to ensure no production change and I haven't eaten one yet. Why? I may be tempted to not share! And if you want to read more about how I feel about these bars, check out this post.

What makes me happier is that Clif Bar is now donating 1% of their net sales to Protect Our Winters. That makes me happy. I love companies that give back. Side note: My full-time job is working at a local non-profit....donations make me very happy! The mission of Protect Our Winters is unite and actively engate the global snow sports community to lead the fight agaist climate change. For those of you who know I live on Maui please don't laugh too hard about me caring about snow sports. That local non-profit I work for...our mission is to protect our oceans through science and advocacy. Climate change will impact us all but today let's not get into the debates that swirl around climate change instead let's focus on goodness. You want to try some Clif Bars!

The giveaway will be open for a week for entries. I will randomly select the winner next Thursday, November 13th, via Rafflecopter. Due to the fact that I will be paying the shipping myself, the winner must be in the United States or Canada. If the winner does not get back to me within 72 hours an alternative winner will be selected. 

Good luck!

  1. I love the taste of Clif Bars. But, I also think they could cut back on the sugar just a little. They don't have to be that sweet. White Chocolate Macadamia is YUMMY.

    1. Great point. All of a sudden I am envisioning a lower sugar line -- and no, I don't mean then beef up artificial sweeteners. :)
