But one task I do really look forward to is going through the mail that has accumulated while I’m away. We had the post office hold our mail this time around so it was not delivered until Tuesday at noon.
In the bundle was a lovely little package from CLIF Bar & Company with an assortment of the new CLIF Organic Trail Mix Bars that were introduced in Canada on May 1st at select retailers.
I was thrilled to see that they are gluten free, and under 200 calories each. Just look at the lineup of flavors:
- Coconut Almond Peanut
- Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt
- Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond
- Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter
- Dark Chocolate Pomegranate Raspberry
Weighing in at 40g each, they are just the right size for a nutritious and satisfying snack. The first one I tried was the Coconunt Almond Peanut, after playing a sweaty round of singles tennis with The Captain on Tuesday afternoon. It was very dense and quite chewy so I enjoyed it a nibble at a time while drinking some water and stretching after the match. I had a nice little burst of energy to help me power through the half hour walk home from the tennis court. We both agreed it was delicious!
These Organic Trail Mix Bars are filled with nutritious and delicious ingredients. I am a huge lover of almonds and the organic almonds CLIF Bar & Company use are grown without synthetic pesticides or highly toxic fertilizers and contribute to protein, energy and flavour, and add a welcome crunch to their bars. Mmmmm.

Even if you are not a fan of bars in general, you may just really like these as they are really just trail mix ingredients formed into a handy bar – portable and easy to stow in a pocket, a gym bag, or in your desk. Much less messy on the fingers and easier to chow down than regular trail mix, too.
I know that these bars are being sampled at various events throughout North America right now.
Have you had a chance to try them yet?
Do you put off unpacking after a vacation, too?
