Clif Bar keeps expanding its range of the popular Build bar range. There are a few Chocolate flavored bars and to switch things up we are reviewing the Crunchy Peanut Butter Builder Bar this time around.
As you can see from the photo this bar avoids using chocolate coating. The coating is a creamie Peanut Butter flavor which makes a nice change. But note one of the potential issues with any mass produced protein bar. The coating is extremely thick on the top portion of the bar in this production run. Thankfully its not very sweet so the bar still tasted ok.
The bar was not as sweet as some of the Chocolate flavored Builder Bars likely because of the use of peanuts. The ingredient list includes Peanut Butter, peanuts and peanut flour and all three are organic. The use of all the peanuts likely leads to the fact that this version of the bar contains 2 more grams of fat than some of the other bars. It also contains 20 more calories but it does stay below 300 calories. It does have the same amount of protein at 20 grams.
Overall if you like the taste of peanut butter this bar is a great alternative to the other chocolate flavored Builder bars. The creamy coating will not work on a warm summer bike ride so thats something to keep in mind.
