Heading into the holidays, there’s no question which energy bars you should choose to fuel your outdoors or doorbusting adventures. CLIF has launched a handful of flavors to get you into the holiday spirit and keep you fueled. This year’s seasonal flavors include: Cranberry Orange Nut Bread, Iced Gingerbread and Spiced Pumpkin Pie.

Not only are we talking great holiday flavors, but these bars are just like the traditional flavors with organic and all-natural ingredients. I’ve tried the Iced Gingerbread and it’s tasty… a little sweet, but tasty. I’ll report back on the other flavors as I use them over the coming weeks.

Here’s a little more info from CLIF BAR:

EMERYVILLE, Calif., October 19, 2010 – CLIF BAR’s popular seasonal flavors have returned with an added benefit this year: The holiday spirit of giving back.

The flavor trio tastes like home-baked holiday treats and yet still has CLIF’s athlete-crafted blend of carbohydrates, protein and fiber for sustained energy. The flavors – Cranberry Orange Nut Bread, Iced Gingerbread and Spiced Pumpkin Pie – are made with organic and all-natural ingredients. They are available nationwide now through the holiday season while supplies last (SRP: $1.39).

New this year to the seasonal flavor campaign, CLIF BAR will donate 1 percent of net sales to Winter Wildlands Alliance, the first and only national organization that works on behalf of skiers, snowboarders, snowshoers, winter hikers and other outdoor adventurers to address national issues that impact our winter wildlands.

“Once again this year we received a lot of phone calls and emails asking when our holiday-inspired flavors would be available. Well, the wait is over,” said Carly Lutz, Clif brand director. “And this year we’re proud to support Winter Wildlands Alliance in its preservation efforts – a cause anyone who enjoys outdoor winter adventures can get behind.”

The three limited-edition bars join 15 year-round CLIF BAR flavors, all made with whole ingredients you can see and taste, such as oats, fruit and nuts. CLIF BARs also serve as a good source of protein and fiber, which help the body digest carbohydrates slowly to deliver sustained energy. In addition, CLIF BARs are free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and artificial flavors, sweeteners and preservatives.
