A tasty protein snack, without a lot of sugar.

Pros

  • 14g of protein
  • Low glycemic
  • Pretty tasty

Cons

  • The whey taste is sometimes a little strong

I always love a good protein snack after a workout, whether a bike ride, gym run, or hike. Unfortunately, many yummy protein products are loaded with sugar, oftentimes more sugar than I would like.

Clif's new Whey Protein Bar solves that problem. With a mere 5 grams of sugar, this bar gives you a decent post-exercise protein fix, without loading you up with sugar. The protein is supplied by whey, but also from Pea Protein and Brown Rice Protein.

The bar comes in three different flavors: Salted Cashew Caramel (yum), Peanut Butter Chocolate, and Coconut Almond Chocolate.

The texture is fairly typical Clif bar kind of fare, with a layer of chocolate along the back. The taste is a nice treat after exercise, though sometimes the "whey" taste can be a little much (hence half-a-star off of the rating). 

But overall, a nice treat, without a big sugar kick. This bar is prominent in my cupboard these days, and a frequent feature after my workouts.
