The CLIF Bar Might Be The Best Energy Food Bar For Survival Kit

Recently I shopped around for some additional food bars to add with other foods in my 72-hour survival (emergency) kit that I keep in the truck.

The CLIF Bar looks (and tastes) to be one of the best energy bars to consider, and here’s why:


 

 
The calories in a single Crunch Peanut Butter CLIF Bar amounts to 260, making it a great choice for one’s survival kit or 72-hour kit. Enough calories are very important to any emergency-survival situation with regards to the food category.

It’s not something you would want to eat all the time, but these sure do provide a caloric and energy boost. Here’s the nutritional facts breakdown:

Calories 260
Calories from Fat 60
Sodium 230mg
Potassium 230mg
Toal Carb. 41g
Dietary Fiber 4g
Sugars 20g (lots, but it’s energy)
Protein 11g

 
CLIF BAR – Energy Bar – Chocolate Chip:
CLIF BAR – 12 Count

CLIF BAR – Energy Bar – White Chocolate Macadamia:
CLIF BAR – 12 Count

CLIF BAR – Energy Bar – Crunchy Peanut Butter:
CLIF BAR – 24 Count

 
Did I mention that they actually taste good?

The CLIF Bar is also a great add for hiking. Light weight, packed with energy and calories.

Their ‘best by’ date appears to be 1-year from manufacture. If you keep these in a hot car during the summer, be sure to rotate them at end of season so they won’t eventually spoil.

Impressively, the company is family and employee owned and are located in Emeryville, CA.

 
Note: I have also been a fan of DATREX food bars which I also keep in my 72-hour kit. They are different in that they are designed to be stored on lifeboats in vacuum-sealed packaging with a 5-year ‘best by’ date. They don’t taste as good (not bad though) but are also very calorie-dense. They are designed to minimize thirst afterwards too (important if you’re floating at sea on a lifeboat!). Here’s an article I wrote about them awhile ago:
