Fall is in the air, and with the changing season come familiar tastes and smells. Clif Bar is serving up popular fall flavors like Spiced Pumpkin Pie, Pecan Pie, and Iced Gingerbread for a limited time, and I recently got a chance to try all three. Of course taste is subjective, so I enlisted my wife and daughter to help in our taste test. Here’s how each flavor scored:
Spiced Pumpkin Pie
This is the most flavorful of the bunch and if you like pumpkin pie spices, you’ll love this bar. It was too spicy for my wife and I, with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Our 4-year-old, who I assumed would spit this bar out, ate her entire portion and ranked it #2 of 3. Go figure!
The Pecan Pie energy bar tasted nutty and sweet and had a slightly crunchy texture. My daughter and I both ranked it #1 while Leah ranked it #2. Here in the southeast we know our pee-kan pie, which makes this endorsement even more powerful.
This was probably the most true-to-flavor bar we tested, with just the right amount of bite from the ginger. Our family was all over the board on this one, but in the end, Iced Gingerbread landed at #2 overall.
Winner: Pecan Pie.
If you’re looking to switch things up and try some new energy bar flavors on your hikes and campouts this fall, give these limited-time Clif Bars a try.
