Which Energy Bar Works For You?

Energy bars are the cornerstone of hiking. Without all of their energy packed goodness, we would either be packing more food or running out of energy halfway through our hike. When it comes to bars though, my preference is Clif. More specifically, the Blueberry Crisp bar. I’ve tried the other flavors, and none of them do it for me. However, compared to PowerBar, these tastes infinitely better due to their texture and the fact that it’s almost like real food.

The second option, which I may switch back to is PowerBar. I’ve always gone with the Vanilla Crisp simply because I couldn’t stomach the other flavors. In fact, even eating an entire Vanilla Crisp bar is impossible now. So why would I switch back? Well, for me at least, PowerBars seem to give me the kick that I need. I ascended Twin Peaks on half a bar without break while keeping a steady but not slow pace. I was amazed as to how quickly I got up there!

So back to the title, Which Energy Bar Works For You?, I’m interested to get your take on it.
