Summary

Tasty energy on the go. Great for a fast snack that won't slow you down. Lots of fat calories to give the belly a break from heavy carb loads.

Pros

  • Delicious
  • Low glycemic
  • Half the calories are from fat

Cons

  • Sort of small in volume
  • Fruit makes them a bit sticky

Far different from the standard Clif Bar the Mojo Trail Mix line of bars are something to eat because you want to, not because you need to. All of the flavors I have tried so far have been a delicious way of adding some variety to my on trail diet.

The Cranberry Almond flavor, like the others in the Mojo line, gets a lot of its calories from fat. Trying to keep up with energy needs on trail with carb heavy bars often takes a toll on my digestion by the end of a long hard day. I have found that these bars offer a nice energy boost especially towards the end of the day when it can be hard to keep eating.

The mix of fruit and nuts is well balanced with just a hint of salt. Made with lots of cranberries the tartness works to give these bars a lot of flavor. The fruit does tend to make the entire inside of the packaging quite sticky, especially in hot weather. That means that they need to be opened and eaten somewhat carefully to avoid making a mess. This issue is made worse if the bars are carried in a hip belt.

Being so tasty I often wish the bar was larger in size, but one of their benefits is that they aren't a heavy snack. At 180 calories the Cranberry Almond Mojo is a nice way to keep the fuel tank topped off. I can recommend this bar to anyone needing some compact energy on the go, but especially to those looking to add some fat calories to balance out their trail diet.

I have a bad habit of bonking late in the day when I can't make myself keep eating. This year I tried out lots of different options to find things that were easier to choke down. These Mojo bars are great late in the day when I can't handle the thought of one more Clif Bar :)

I rarely can handle the thought of one more Clif Bar. They're filling, but disgusting. Did you see my Mariani review? https://www.trailspace.com/gear/other/mariani-cranberry-honeybar/?review=32606&utm_campaign=comment&utm_medium=email&utm_source=notifications#comments
