Mt. Sugar Everest

Are you hanging on the cliff of a sugar mountain?

Clif Bar Chocolate Chip Organic Energy Bar has a total of 23 grams of sugar. Even though the Clif Bar has that much sugar, it is still a good idea to have one if you are doing large amounts of physical activity in a short time.

When you have a lot of sugar at one time, you get a lot of energy for a short period of time, but it will soon run out and you will become tired. There are better options to get long lasting energy. Just like climbing a mountain, you go up, and then you come crashing down again. Don’t find yourself hanging on the Clif of sugar everyday.

    Thank you so much for this information! I will be checking my labels in the future! Do you think there is a better choices for an energy bar? Perhaps even a different flavor will have less sugar!

      Thank you for liking my post. After this post i was promoted from author to editor. Now to answer you question the Clif White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Organic Energy Bar has only 21 grams of sugar. The thing i do not get is that there can be that many grams of sugar in a organic food. Thank you and happy reading.
