Not a Sandpaper Tasting Energy Bar

Energy bars have come a long way. I remember back when they were gross. Seriously, you ate one and they tasted like heavy-on-your-tongue sandpaper. I'm not sure if that makes sense to you, but it's the best way for me to explain it. Imagine something with the texture of thick, gooey paste with the flavor of dry, raw oats. Better understand it now? Good.

I guess I was always under the impression that you had to be in training for something or a body builder or in really good shape to eat the energy bars. I mean, what are they really for??? Please, someone tell me. I am in no way in shape (although I am on Weight Watchers recently and am trying! They are 5 points.) and am not a body builder and definitely not in training for anything either. Is it wrong that I am eating them?

Well, I had a coupon for the Cliff Bar and thought I would give it a try. I was hesitant because of past experience as mentioned above.

I chose the Crunchy Peanut Butter Cliff bar and OMG!!! it was sooooo good. Really, really yummy! I was totally shocked. My tongue (really my taste buds I guess) was doing the happy dance. :)

There were so many flavors to choose from at the grocery store. Seriously there must have been 15 or more! Like I said I tried the Crunchy Peanut Butter; however, I also bought the Banana Nut Bread and

the Carrot Cake! I am really looking forward to trying both of these, especially if they are anything like the Crunchy Peanut Butter one.

So, now that I ate it, bring on the energy right? Have you ever tried energy bars? Which are your favorites?
