Clif Bar got its name from the founder, Gary’s, father, who was named Clif. The inspiration for the Clif bar came when Gary was eating an energy bar, and thought that he could make a better bar than that one. The Clif bar is the original energy bar. It is made from 70% organic ingredients. Popular flavors include Chocolate Chip, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, and Crunchy Peanut Butter. Other flavors include White Chocolate Macadamia, Oatmeal Raisin Walnut, Maple Nut, Gary’s Panforte, Chocolate Brownie, Carrot Cake, Banana Nut Bread, Apricot, and more. They also make a line of Clif Kid Z Bars. They are 95% organic, 12 essential vitamins and minerals, and 8 to 11 grams of whole grains. They do not contain high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, preservatives, trans fats, artificial flavors or artificial colors. They are a healthy alternative to other types of snacks for kids. You can buy Clif products through their website. They sell in bulk quantities. Prices range from about $15.00 for 12 Clif bars to about $5.00 for a six pack of Clif Kid Z Bars.
Foods that are organic were grown without pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, or ionizing radiation. Organic foods are GMO free. Whole grains are a good source of fiber, which helps with digestion. Use the “Pick and Choose ‘Em” portion of the Clif website to find products that do not contain certain allergens. If you pick “no gluten”, it will bring up products that are gluten free. These products do no contain wheat or other ingredients that have gluten in them. This makes them safe for people who have celiac disease or a gluten allergy or intolerance. Clif has its headquarters in Emeryville, California.
