Maple Nut Clif Bar

Maple Nut Clif Bar

9/10: As a New Englander born and raised with relatives from the depths of New Hampshire, I’ve had my fair share of maple syrups and consider my self something of a connoisseur. I loved the flavor in this as it was very sweet and, more importantly, very authentic; it tasted like maple syrup and not the Aunt Jemima imitation stuff. I mean, I really enjoyed the flavor. I also was surprised and overjoyed that the “nut” wasn’t the typical walnut that’s overdone with maple but rather the pecan which I personal enjoy more. Nutritionally, this bar had a lot of sugar; sugar is 1/3 of the calories here. However, the flavor had me overlooking this because, and let’s face it, when you’re doing maple you’ve got to go big or go home. Besides that, I loved the protein boost from soy, the 5g of fiber, and the healthy fats. It’s also fortified with plenty of vitamins and minerals which I’m a sucker for. This isn’t a bar I would have again, but rather one that I will have again.
