Flavors sampled: Lemon Lime-ade and Cranberry Razz. Though we found Razz a touch on the sweet side, Lemon Lime-ade was guzzled with gusto—all day long.
Nutrition Facts: Clif Bars are hearty, earthy and stuffed with calories. The light-tasting Clif Shots don’t feel like they’re on the same heavy side, but the 80-cal supplement packs a bit of a punch. In addition to electrolytes, the 4% carb solution contains 10% of your daily value of sodium and 19g of sugar for immediate and sustained energy.
Testing scenario: In extreme Utah desert conditions, we followed Clif’s advice and had a 20-oz water every hour, supplemented by this 90% organic and delicious mix.
Bottom line: not as light as Nuun, not as heavy as Skratch, Clif Shot Mix is a solid and sustainable baseline.
