Clif Coconut Chocolate Crunch

I am on a little getaway to an undisclosed location.  This is my last chance to sneak out on a (short) mid-week getaway until Christmas time, and the first time I have been off of work without making up the hours missed since May -- and it's mid-October. 

Given that I have been hauling booty at work and malfunctioning in other arenas lately, I felt that I really needed a break at whatever the cost.  My poor "Ukrainian" has been either in class or teaching four (soemtimes five!) days a week, on top of his full-time job.  Therefore, our time together is rushed/truncated/often not existing.  I think we both need this.

In the meantime, I thought I'd talk about this new flavor of Clif bars.  I've reviewed other flavors HERE, but this one I think I will pass on in the future.  To be fair, I have a strange relationship with coconut, borderline food aversion, but I have learned to enjoy it more as I got older.  The coconut flavor in this is too much for me, with me in my adjustment phase.  I think it would have been better with some actual coconut pieces in there... to legitimize the flavor.

If you happen to like coconut, I'd say you should give this a try.


  1. I really like coconut and was a fan of this one at first, but they very quickly became way too sweet, to the point where I can't really stomach them anymore, especially during races.

  2. Oh no! I just bought a couple of these today because I thought they sounded so good! Hmm, I guess I'll wait and see what I think when I actually try one...I hope they're okay!
