Clif Bloks: What is it and why do you use them?

clif bloks

CLIF Bloks are semi-solid, easily chewable sources of carbohydrates - your body's preferred fuel during strenuous activity.

What are Clif Bloks Energy Chews?

After countless hours of training and competition, the body craves variety. To give athletes another sports nutrition option, we created CLIF BLOKS Energy Chews, semi-solid, easy-to-chew sources of carbohydrates. Easy to handle and with a nutritional profile similar to CLIF SHOT Energy Gel, CLIF BLOKS Energy Chews complement our other CLIF Athlete Series and CLIF products and provide athletes with an alternative to their sports nutrition program.

Why should I use Clif Bar Bloks?

CLIF BAR BLOKS provide the muscles with the carbohydrates they need. Consuming carbohydrates during activity improves performance by continuously supplying working muscles with energy. Although the body can store a limited amount of carbohydrates as glycogen, it burns these stored carbohydrates faster the harder it works. Consuming carbohydrates during activity allows the body to maintain activity for a longer period of time.

Half a pack of CLIF BAR BLOKS can be consumed 15 minutes before the activity, followed by 1-2 packs per hour during the activity. Consuming CLIF BLOKS should always be followed by a drink of water.

Why are the Bloks made from organic ingredients? 

By using organically grown ingredients, we help keep highly toxic, persistent pesticides and synthetic fertilizers out of the environment and our bodies, making organic farming and agriculture good for both people and the planet. Organic production causes less pollution, contributes to the creation of nutrient-rich soil and increases biodiversity.

Yes, three flavors of CLIFBAR BLOKS contain caffeine. Caffeine is an effective performance-enhancing ingredient known to boost athletes and improve mental alertness. We use green tea extract as our source of caffeine and have a special label on the packaging of those flavors so you can easily tell that they contain extra caffeine. Black Cherry Flavor CLIF BLOKS contains 50 mg caffeine per serving. The Orange Flavor and Tropical Punch Flavor contain 25 mg caffeine per serving. CLIF BLOKS caffeinated flavors are not intended for persons under the age of 18, pregnant or lactating women, or for those sensitive to caffeine.

Are Clif Bloks gluten free?

Yes, CLIF BLOKS are gluten-free.

Why wouldn't you just eat an energy bar?

For many athletes, solid food can be difficult to digest during intense physical activity and can take time to be absorbed by the body. Many athletes find our energy chews easier to digest, and they also provide quick energy by supplying carbohydrates to the body. Additionally, CLIF BLOKS packaging is convenient and easily accessible, helping to minimize the distraction of unpacking and chewing food during intense activities.
