Think: cherry-flavored Tootsie Roll Pop—in a good way. This newest flavor of Clif’s energy chew lineup combines fruity sweetness with a hint of chocolate from real, organic cocoa powder.
Each three-block, 100-calorie serving of the candy-like chews is made of 95-percent organic, easy-to-digest sugars and 50 milligrams of caffeine from green tea extract (the equivalent of ¹⁄³ of a cup of coffee)—a perfect recipe for anti-bonking energy on big climbs after an alpine start. As with most energy chews/gels, down these melt-in-your-mouth blocks with a few swigs of water. $2 (2 servings); 2.3 oz.; clifbar.com
