Variety is the spice of life – Clif Bar couldn’t agree more. Clif Bar understands (‘cause they’ve been there) that after numerous hours of training and racing, the body needs to mix it up a little in terms of what goes in the tank. That’s why Clif Bar set out to create another energy food option that would complement their bars and gels. The result is CLIF SHOT BLOKS. They’re simple-to-handle, easy-to- chew, and provide similar nutrition to SHOT gel, so they’ll fit seamlessly into your training and racing nutrition program.
Nutrition – Carbohydrates and Electrolytes
SHOT BLOKS offer very similar nutrition to SHOT Energy Gel. The primary ingredient for both is brown rice syrup which provides easily assimilated carbohydrates for working muscles. Both products also provide the mineral salts known as electrolytes. These electrolytes allow electrical impulses to travel properly throughout your body, permitting normal bodily function. When you sweat, you start to deplete your electrolyte stores and experience potential performance decline, so it’s best to help replenish them through food and fluid intake.
Form and Function
Clif Bar created SHOT BLOKS, each in a 10g size, so that 3 BLOKS provide 100 calories. That makes it easy to track caloric intake during long outings. There are 6 BLOKS to a single serve package, so one package provides 200 calories.
CLIF SHOT BLOKS are the first product in the SHOT line to be USDA certified organic, which means that each flavor contains a minimum of 95% Organic ingredients. Clif Bar strives to use the most sustainable ingredients possible in their products. The environmental benefits of buying organic ingredients for our products have a direct positive impact on the air and water quality on this planet. CLIF SHOT BLOKS are USDA certified organic by Quality Assurance International (QAI).

About Cliff Bar & Company
Clif Bar & Company started on a bike ride. Their founder, Gary, took a bite of yet another energy bar and thought to himself, "I can do better." Two years later, CLIF Bar was launched and soon became the leading energy bar.
As much as they loved the original, many of the women here at Clif Bar & Company were in search of a bar more suited for them - something just as flavorful and satisfying, but smaller and with fewer calories. And, they wanted this bar to address their unique nutritional needs.
So they put their minds and taste buds to work to create something delicious and nutritious. In 1999 they launched LUNA. It was an immediate hit with active women who wanted something that tastes good and is good for them.
As a company they hold their selves to not one, but five "bottom lines":
Sustaining their business by creating long-term, sustainable goals and continuing to grow within their means
Sustaining their brands by making nutritious and delicious products, and never compromising on quality
Sustaining their planet by keeping their impact on the environment small, even as they grow
Sustaining their people by creating a workspace where people can thrive and find balance, even from 9-5
Sustaining their community by being good neighbors and giving back to the community in which they live
Today, a decade after the first LUNA bar, they are still spending a lot of time in the kitchen doting over the bars. But they feel even more nourished when they are doing the things they enjoy most, and giving back to the community. To see what keeps them inspired and connected with other women check out LUNAFEST, Team LUNA Chix, and their friends at the Breast Cancer Fund, and Healthy Child Healthy World.
They feel incredibly lucky to be able to work at a place like this. They hope you join them - even if it's just by eating a bar or two!
