- Yummy Quality Protein
I have tried many protein bars and have found this one to be my favorite. I eat them before or after workouts and as meal replacements when I'm on the go. Because they are a little heftier than some other bars they fill me up. I love the crunchy and chewy texture. It has a nutty flavor, but is sweet enough to satisfy. A great, yummy product! I have ordered them during the hot summer and found the product to have been melted and reformed when arrived, but during cooler seasons I haven't had any problems with the order. It arrives promptly and is a fresh box ready to go! Gotta get my next order in......more info
- Taste great
I tried a box of the vanilla almond bars as a source of cheap, easy, healthy protein, and they taste great....more info
- Melted during shipping?
Although these bars have been a favorite of my husband and I, the two boxes that were shipped to us were so crumbly, we couldn't open the package without a napkin underneath. And, the taste just wasn't as fresh as buying them off the shelf. We love the fact that these bars don't have the bad ingredients a number of other bars have, and we love that the bars fill the appetite void, but the freshness and crumbling state will probably cause us to rethink buying them through Amazon, even though it is cheaper than buying them off the shelf....more info
I'm very good looking and I have to strive very hard to stay very good looking.
These bars help me stay very good looking. 20g decent quality protein, 20g sugar tho.
either way the taste is tops. vanilla almond is a little too sweet for me, but the peanut butter and chocolate are both awe to the some.
like most bars, they have a low meliting point so never leave these in your car or anything remotely warm
you will not get as good looking as me purely by eating cliff bars.. (2 periods there for emphasis) Cliff bars are only a small part of the lifestyle. But you all have to start somewhere.
one last thing. the best deal is the 18 pack....more info
- A great affordable choice
The Clif Builder's bars have a great taste and are available at a good price. They are quite filling and feature mostly natural ingredients with no hydrogenated oils or high fructose.
The chocolate mint is the best flavor in my opinion, but you won't go wrong with another flavor. The only negative thing about these is that thet have soy protein, which contains plant estrogen hormones. However, I believe that Soy Isolate is free of these hormones, so it really is nitpicking. ...more info
- Watch the Carbs
From what I found, these bars have the most protein with the least amount of carbs. They taste good, but as a meal replacement they came a few hours short. ...more info
- Great taste and very filling
I have tried a few protein bars and didn't find anything that I enjoy eating. I would only eat them as a last resort and most of the times I would only eat half of the bar.
One of my friend recommended me Clif Builder's bar and I am very thankful to him. The bar has great taste and its very filling. Even the peanut butter flavor is good though the chocolate flavor is even better. In terms of nutrition I have no comments please check the ingredients....more info
- Manly Taste
Rub chocolate over a guy's arm and chew. Now you have an idea of the flavor. Pretty good if you like that kind of thing, but not so much if you don't like nutrition bars....more info
- Good bars-- Go Clif
I frequently bought the normal clif bar variety pack (approx $0.75 a bar) at costco before I found these. I like the addition of chocolate and the increased protein of the builders bars (9g in the normal ones and 20g in these). The bars taste great and the added minerals and organic ingredients make them very healthy. The only downside I see is that the protein is soy protein-- I would prefer whey....more info
- Best Tasting Protein Bar
These bars are delicious and give you 20g of protein. Amazon's Subscribe and Save makes them a very worthwhile buy....more info
- ingredients lacking
I agree with most posters that these seem like good protein bars and taste good. But in the ingredients list, the first ingredient is soy protein isolate. That automatically bombs for me. My reading and limited research believe soy to be an inferior and cheap substitute protein. Whey protein isolate is a higher grade of protein and has more understanding in the long term effects of eating a lot of it.
I'm not comfortable with eating soy since all cheap protein bars seem to contain it. ...more info
- Delicious and nutritious!
These bars are quite tasty and are good as a energy boost or desert even. They are a little high in sugar and fat, but if you don't over do it, they are a good choice.
In addition, these bars are made with REAL ingredients so you don't have to wonder about what it is you're eating and won't have to deal with possible indigestion from chemical additives/sugar alcohols....more info
- Good Snack
My doctor recommended that I add more soy to my diet. I found these bars to be not only a good source of soy, but also quite tasty. They have less carbs than other bars I've researched. I typically have these as a midday snack, to tide me over until lunch. They are quite satisfying. ...more info
- Great, but 270 calories
This is a great bar, but be careful of the fat. Chances are if you are eating bars like this you are being mindful of this sort of thing.
270 calories, 70 of which come from fat (8g/12% of your daily). The other flavors might be a bit lower since this one is Chocolate (20g of sugar)....more info
I use eat one of these bars between two exercise classes that I do back to back. They are delicious. To me they are so good I feel like I need a glass of milk to wash it down with. A good high protein snack when on the go....more info
- High Protein, Good Taste
This bar tastes good and has a high protein count. Good crunchy texture, tastes similar to a snickers bar. Con: 20 grams of sugar. All and all this is a great alternative to vending machine snacks. Good for taking a hour before a workout. ...more info
- Strong taste buds
Don't know how well they work but they are not that tasty. and you will have to have strong taste buds to finish 1...more info
- One of the best!
Of course, personal taste will determine you own opinion of the Clif Builder's Bar, but this is my personal favorite... and I've tried a lot of sports bars. The taste is quite good and I like the texture. It's not roughage and it's not super gooy either. I use them a lot when I do long bike rides and some races. I found that they give me good energy and never upset my stomach. However, I don't find them ideal in the middle of a grueling marathon race... they're a bit heavy for that....more info
- I loved it, but...
Recently I took notice of the fact that the saturated fat content in each bar is very high. Total fat is 8g (12%) of which saturated fat is 5g (25%), which is not at all good for your heart. While its high protein (20g) and calorie (270) content could have made this bar a very good option for people who are into building muscles and gaining weight, this one big negative point offsets most of the other great positives. Otherwise, this bar is simply awesome. It's the best tasting protein/energy bar out there, hands down. The price is also reasonable compared to other bars of equal or even lesser nutritional value. Unfortunately from now on, because of the high saturated fat, this won't be my #1 choice of protein bar. Try the Gatorade energy bar instead. While it doesn't taste as good as this one (although the taste is still quite good), the protein (15g) and calorie (250) values are comparable. But the best part is that it only has 1g (5%) of saturated fat....more info
- Clif Builder's built a better bar
Absolutely love this bar. Out of all flavors this is the best in my opinion. When I hit the afternoon candy craving or need some extra nutrition in the morning I go for the Builder's bar....more info
- My favorite protein bars - and I've tried them all!
If you're anything like me, you exercise, lift weights, and try to get as much protein as possible. But 99% of protein bars are completely AWFUL.
I tried these because they were made by Clif, and they've always made tasty, all natural snacks. These bars are no exception. My favorite flavor is chocolate mint, but the peanut butter is also great.
These are chewy (but not too chewy), crunchy, NOT chalky, absolutely delicious protein bars. And they have 19 g. of high quality protein, which is great. Sure, it's not as much as 31 g. offered by PowerBar, but have you tasted those? I'd rather eat my shoe.
Go with the subscribe-and-save and save 15% on each order with free shipping! Definitely the best deal around on the best tasting protein bars I've ever had!...more info
- happy customer
one of the best tasting protein bars out there.the chocolate is my favorite(my husband likes the peanut butter).the bar prove to be a good after workout snack that have proven to hold me over until i can sit down and eat a proper meal.i highly recommend this productfor those who are looking for a nutritious snack....more info
- Mmmmm. Clif Builders Bar
Ok, Clif bars are not generally known for their superior taste, but these bars are VERY good. I keep one handy for afternoon snack instead of Snickers or other bars. They have a Low Glycemic Index (GI) which means they wont spike your blood sugar. (I am diabetic) At 300 calaries and 30g of carbs and 6g of fiber it is not too bad, and I usually only eat half a bar at a time. I do not buy these at the supermarket for $2 each, way too high, but on Amazon with free shipping and a grocery promo, I got them for about half of that, which is a good price....more info
- Who needs a candy bar?
I'm one of those people who usually eats what I feel like, when I feel like it. So, when I choose a food, it's usually because it's a tasty option! I've never used energy bars specifically as meal replacements, though sometimes the timing would work out that way. Clif has the best tasting bars all around, in my opinion - the best flavors (carrot cake!), the best texture. I also like Kashi bars for long-lasting glycemic/hunger control, but they just don't have enough protein. Now that I've found the Clif Builder's Bar, I don't think I'd really choose any other. As a full-time graduate student and a woman pregnant with twins, these are pretty much the perfect breakfast/snack when I'm on the run. The chocolate and peanut butter bars taste as good to me as a candy bar, with a LOT more nutrition! The vanilla-almond bar is a nice non-chocolate option for breakfast. I like the cookies and cream and chocolate mint versions as well, but choose them more for occasional variety. Also, if you're trying to limit your carbohydrate intake (or spread it out throughout the day), these are perfect - about 30 grams per bar....more info
- Great taste, no artificial sweeteners
These Clif bars taste great, have good quality protein and do not have the artificial sweeteners so common in other bars....more info
- Did not like Vanilla Almond at all
This item arrived and it was not past it's due date... but it sure tasted like it was! It did not taste like vanilla or almond. It was more like a chalky, powdered whey flavor with a layer of goo on top. The worst bar I have ever had. I've tried and enjoyed many bars, even the less palate-friendly high-protein ones. Thumbs down to the vanilla almond!...more info
- great taste, great price. good ingredients
These are actually tasty. Not an easy feat for a power bar. And a lot of protein in each bar. The ingredients are not as questionable as other bars....more info
- They taste like Chocolate Thin Mint Girl Scout cookies!!!!!!! Yummy!!!!!
What else is there to say! Thin mint Girl Scout Cookies are THE BOMB!...more info
If you look at all the goodness contained in these bars, and then eat one a day, you will not regret it. True, there are as many calories in these bars as there are in a Milky Way, abut a candy bar doesnt' give you so many supplements. Also, the Builder Chocolate Mint bars are truly great tasting. To me, it's like a candy bar. Plus I can't find them anywhere in the grocery stores as they are always sold out. On Amazon, they arrive monthly. Great deal, great nutrition, great way to fulfill a chocolate craving. ...more info
- Great Flavor, Great Price
I love these bars. They taste good and the texture is fabulous. The price and delivery time were also excellent. ...more info
- Far better than most...
These bars are great. I've been having them for a few months and I love them. They're probably the best I've ever had. They taste great! I personally prefer the chocolate over the peanut butter bars, but the PB bars are a nice change when I'm bored with Chocolate. I can't wait to try the other flavors....more info
- Geat for older people, too
My dad is 68 years old and he is a big fan of these bars. He has been in the Miami VA hospital since August. The food there is like that in the Woody Allen joke--terrible, and such small portions. My dad supplements his protein intake with these bars. I suspect they are contributing to his long and difficult recovery in a significant way....more info
