Clif Mojo Trail Mix Bar Review and Giveaway!

Not going to lie, I like getting this kind of mail!

I was sent two boxes of Clif Mojo Trail Mix Bars to review - what a treat!  While bars in general are not something that I eat everyday, I like to have one or two in my purse for when I'm out and about, in case I get hungry.  I'd rather eat a bar and avoid getting to the "hangry" stage (hungry + angry) where I have been known to inhale everything with reckless abandon (sad but true).

I like regular Clif bars so I was pretty sure I'd like these - and I do.  Funny thing, though - I was more excited to try the Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut flavor than the Peanut Butter Pretzel flavor, but as it turns out, I actually preferred the peanut butter bar.  Don't get me wrong, they are both tasty and I'd eat either, but I think the peanut butter bar packs a bigger punch.  Both are similar in calorie counts - the chocolate/almond has 200 calories with 8 grams of protein, and the peanut butter/pretzel has 190 calories with 9 grams of protein.
I had a couple of other taste-testers - Jeff preferred the peanut butter/pretzel one; Amy really liked the chocolate/almond bar, but then, I didn't have the other flavor for her to try, so who knows...that one still might be the local favorite!

These bars are widely available, but one lucky reader can win two boxes - both the Dark Chocolate Almond Coconut and the Peanut Butter Pretzel - that's 24 bars altogether!  If you want to be entered in the random drawing, just leave a comment on this post saying you're in and which flavor you'd prefer (although the winner will receive both).  U.S. residents only (sorry, international readers!) - please be sure to leave your email address in the comments if it's not connected to your name.  Winner will be announced NEXT Friday, February 14th.

Comments are closed as this giveaway has ended.

FTC disclosure:  I was sent two boxes of this product for review; opinions expressed are all mine.  PR company will be fulfilling the giveaway directly to the winner.

  1. Hi Shelley - I'm still reading every post, but haven't commented in awhile…perhaps my nose is out of joint that your knitting abilities have surpassed mine…harumph! Kidding. However, I'm always up to win something. I think my preference of the 2 bars would be the Peanut Butter Pretzel. Hope, hope, hope!!

  3. I'm sorry, but trying to choose between chocolate almond coconut or peanut butter pretzel would be like trying to choose a favorite child. It's cruel. ;)

  9. What a cool review/giveaway opportunity, congrats!

    I don't need to enter, as I've acquired a Quest bar addiction due to innocently accepting a product review, damn it, and I can't go a day without having at least half a bar... but good luck to the others!

  10. I don't care for coconut so I'll definitely go with the PB pretzel (hubby can have the coconut ones if I win). I don't generally eat bars, either, but have recently gotten hangry out on errand runs because I was caught without a snack in my purse. These really would be perfect for that!

  15. I love regular Clif bars, but have been hesitant to fork out the cash to try the Mojos. I would choose the Almond Coconut, but I'm sure I'd have no problem making my way through the other ones, too! E-mail is compostwife@earthlink.net, if I happen to be the recipient of this awesome giveaway!

  29. Chocolate Almond Coconut might be my favorite.

  30. I love the Cliff Mojo bars! My favorite thing about them is that they are 70% organic, and only $1-ish a bar.

    My fave is the dark chocolate coconut but I buy both. I eat the peanut butter pretzel one when I want something kinda salty and the dark chocolate one when I am craving something sweet :)
