The more organic an energy bar is, the more likely it is to taste like cardboard. The latest offering from Clif — Banana Chocolate Peanut Butter-filled — is heavy on the banana and peanut butter, and somewhat lighter on the chocolate. The cardboard flavor is barely there at all. Remember, it’s an energy bar, not a diet bar, so each one contains 230 calories.

A 1.76-ounce bar is about $1 at grocery stores.
