Clif ZBar Protein Peanut Butter Chocolate: $0.69/Kroger

clifzprotein_chocpb (2)Another bar with a deceiving chocolate layer! Foiled again, but in the case of Clif Kid Zbar Protein Peanut Butter Chocolate, I’ll let it slide since it’s a “kids'” bar. But from its exterior it looks like it has a 1/8″ wide layer of chocolate, and biting into it reveals only a sliver, a mere 1/32″ wide layer of chocolate. The chocolate taste, therefore, is negligent, and what I get most out of these is a hint of chocolate overshadowed by a more peanut butter and oat taste.

The bulk of the bar is chewy oats, shiny-glazed in what I am guessing is the peanut butter flavor, but said oats are a little on the dry side, like the peanut butter should have made its way throughout the entire bar and not just coating the exterior. 5 g. of protein for a child’s snack bar is pretty good, and Joanna says it tastes like a Reese’s peanut butter cup, so like the peanut butter flavor to the chocolate here, her vote trumps mine. (Personally for the price of these, I think it tastes more like a Quaker Chewy peanut butter chocolate granola bar which doesn’t boast the healthier specs of a Clif product, but tastes better in my opinion since those have the peanut butter and chocolate chunks dotted throughout the oats and not just thinly glossed in layers.)
