Clif Mojo Sweet & Salty Mountain Mix: $1/Kroger

clifmojo_mountainmix (4)I’m not sure how this differs from the “original” Clif bar in the Trail Mix flavor other than being rectangular and ever-so slightly less in calories? Ahh wait, I’ve just opened the wrapper and it has that KIND bar-esque stickiness and crunchiness. The salty quality of this flavor of bar is outstanding, and I love that it has pumpkin seeds, pretzels, sunflower seeds and so many nuts, all contributing to the saltiness – then BLAMMO your mouth makes contact w/ the sweet – a squish of raisin, a nibble of chocolate chip, and it all comes together in rapturous rapport.

I got through about 1/3 of the bar, sharing some w/ Joanna who wasn’t quite as fond of the salty (“unless it’s on popcorn!”), and I already have the sense of being full. Between Clif and Quest, I’d say both make good on their promise of being filling. That’s not to say that I won’t be reaching for more snacks between now and lunch, and between lunch and snack part 2 and 3, and early dinner, and early evening snack, and pre-bed snack. What can I say, I love the taste of food and have the bizarre sensation of not necessarily being hungry all the time as much as I’m just never quite fully-sated. 4/5
