Organic Holiday Treats ~ Seasonal Flavors Of @Clifbar Goodness

Just as we have begun to recuperate from the hustle and bustle of back to school and Halloween, its time to gear up for the holidays and winter activities.  Although not yet recognized as a winter sport, holiday shopping can certainly increase one's heart rate and log a goodly number of miles on pedometer, especially if your strategy involves Black Friday excursions.  Whether your winter activity plans involve laps around the shopping mall, endurance tests of patience and stamina in long early bird lines or a more traditional trek involving your cross country skis, Clif Bar has a seasonal holiday treat to lift your spirits and your energy!

Although my student athletes have long been fans of the organic goodness of Clif Bars to keep them fueled between school and the field, we have been enjoying the seasonal flavors offered this year.  We were not disappointed by the fantastic flavor line up for the holidays:  Iced Gingerbread, Peppermint Stick and Spiced Pumpkin Pie, all created with 70& organic ingredients.

Just as we have come to love and expect from the standard flavors of Clif Bar, these seasonal delights stand up to the Clif Bar reputation, both in taste and ingredients.  Soft, moist and full of flavor, we find that Clif Bars fuel us up without weighing us down with undesirable after effects of sugar rush,  Immediately you can see the goodness of the ingredients.

Made with great-tasting organic ingredients you can see and taste. CLIF Bars are a good source of protein and fiber, which help the body digest carbohydrates slowly to deliver sustained energy. CLIF Bars are also free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, artificial flavors, artificial preservatives and ingredients sourced from GMOs.

My daughter's favorite from the seasonal line up was immediately the Peppermint Stick Bar and my husband found each of the seasonal flavors quite palatable.  As for my son and I, we preferred the Iced Gingerbread and Spiced Pumpkin Pie bars and would be hard pressed to decide between them to name one as our top choice.

When planning your holiday shopping strategy, packing up for a trek out of doors or looking for healthier choices to stuff a few stockings, we strongly recommend adding the flavorful and seasonal flavors from Clif Bar to your list!   Both a fueling snack you can feel good about enjoying, as well as a purchase that supports Protect Our Winters, as Clif Bar donates a portion of their seasonal sales to this organization and their commitment "to engaging and mobilizing the winter sports community to lead the fight against climate change."

These look so good and would make a great after school snack for my grandkids. The Iced Gingerbread would be one of my favorites too.
