    Hooked on Apricot flavored Clif Bars

    I saw them at Whole Foods and bought a few/ Now I have to keep going back because nobody else seems to carry that particular flavor. It's a more fruity flavor than other Clif Bar flavors, it's hard to resist eating them at home too.

    You know how I know you're ghey?

    I'm old school. I still enjoy the PB Cliff Bars. All these new flavors are just so weird.

    i try to avoid energy bars,, cause i used to always stock up when they'd be on sale BOGO,, and then id have a huge stockpile of them,, and find myself just eating them all day and neglecting normal food,, and the sheer amount of densely concentrated sugar in half a dozen powerbars is enough to blow anyone wide open (or at least blow everyone else out of the room).
    now i stick to those 3oz shot tubes of liquid protein

    I swore Cliff's bars after they started adding inulin.
    Inulin causes bad gas and bloating.

    I made the same mistake. I get the dry heaves when I smell them now.

    Carrot Cake Lara Bars are my current go to. But Apricot Cliff Bars are a close second.

    I only eat clif bars on rides. Minimal melting in the heat and last for while in the package. I never eat them at home. I would get too fat.

    I have taken to eating a Kashi Go Lean Crisp bar as afternoon snack. 188 calories, 9g of protein. I bought a box of 24 at costco and keep it my desk at work. Better snack anything from a machine. I would never take these trail riding however as the chocolate on the back would melt and make a mess.

    I love them simply for the fact they last a substantial amount of time....don't know how many times I make an unplanned run to my favorite riding spot just to realize I haven't ate anything and need a quick bit of energy. Saved, thanks to the old cliff bar in the bottom of the camelbak

    Gross.....I want to junk punch Cliff after too many over the past few years. The only nutrition I like now is real food...never get tired of that.

    natural flavoring

    Castoreum - From Wikipedia

    Castoreum /kæsˈtɔriəm/ is the exudate from the castor sacs of the mature North American Beaver (Castor canadensis) and the European Beaver (Castor fiber). Within the zoological realm, castoreum is the yellowish secretion of the castor sac in combination with the beaver's urine, used during scent marking of territory.[1][2] Both male and female beavers possess a pair of castor sacs and a pair of anal glands located in two cavities under the skin between the pelvis and the base of the tail.[3] The castor sacs are not true glands (endocrine or exocrine) on a cellular level, hence references to these structures as preputial glands or castor glands are misnomers. [4]Castor sacs are a type of scent gland.
    Today, it is used as a tincture in some perfumes[5] and as a food additive.

    Food use

    In the United States, castoreum is considered to be a GRAS food additive by the Food and Drug Administration.[10] It is often referenced simply as a "natural flavoring" in products' lists of ingredients. While it is mainly used in both foods and beverages as part of a substitute vanilla flavour,[11] it is less commonly used as a part of a raspberry or strawberry flavoring.[12] The annual industry consumption is very low, around 300 pounds,[13] whereas vanillin is over 2.6 million pounds annually.[14]

    Castoreum has been traditionally used in Scandinavia for flavoring snaps commonly referred to as "Bäverhojt".[15]

    And to think I was gonna compliment a recently posted guitar solo, well not any more!

    Side note: how does one discover that fluid from a beavers' sack can be used as a food ingredient? I can already tell you that that guy is way underpaid. I wonder what is on his business card?
