Killer deal on Clif Bars.
In general I don’t require much in the way of solid food on my rides. I seem to perform better when my intra-ride nutritional intake consists of energy gels (GU Chocolate Outrage has been my preferred choice for a few years now), Gatorade on long/hot rides and additional electrolytes from inexpensive and very effective Salt Stick capsules.If I’m doing a medium to long ride (65-100+ miles), I always take a Clif bar with me just in case. I rarely consume the Clif bar on 65 mile rides, but there are times in the past when I was glad I had it. When I do a century ride I’ll almost always consume a Clif bar at about the 65-70 mile point. I also like having Clif bars around just because they are a convenient, easily transported and relative healthy snack.
I get the Clif bars on Amazon’s “Subscribe and Save” program (2 boxes per month), and I was happy to see that recently my favorite flavor, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut, has dropped to an amazing $7.62 per box of 12 (with the 15% S&S discount). That’s less than 64 cents per bar, which is quite a good deal. I think I was paying about a dollar a bar before, and I thought that was a solid deal. Even without the S&S discount the price is currently lower than I’ve seen it anywhere ($8.97).
Last month’s batch had an experation date of February 2016, so it’s safe to stock up on at least six month’s worth while the price is this low (don’t know how long it will last).
I just wanted to pass this deal along, as I know many of you are also big fans of Clif bars.
