CLIF® Bar Introduces GARY's PANFORTE

“In celebration of the company’s 20th anniversary, Clif Bar and Company Founder and Co-CEO Gary Erickson created GARY's PANFORTE, a limited-edition CLIF® Bar full of fruits, nuts and spices that was inspired by his early cycling adventures over Northern Italy’s Passo di Gàvia.”

“Now, 20 years later, Erickson wanted to create GARY's PANFORTE, embodying the flavors of a traditional Italian Panforte, which is full of fruits, nuts, spices and citrus notes, and has been a staple in Italy for hundreds of years. The bar delights taste buds with a flavorful blend of 23 ingredients, including many new to CLIF Bar but typical in Italian Panforte, including crunchy hazelnuts and pistachios, sweet figs and pears, citrus peel and hints of cinnamon, ginger and coriander.”

We had the opportunity to try GARY’s PANFORTE—the kids loved them! I personally found them reminiscent of Christmastime fruitcakes, not necessarily bad, just unexpected. This is definitely not your typical energy bar—the spices set it apart. Definitely don’t wait to try these – they’re being released in a limited edition and remain available only while supplies last.

  1. I saw an article about this recently. I'm going to keep an eye out at my local Sprouts and REI for this one, but being in a smallish town, I don't have high hopes that I'll find them here.

  2. I think I better get out there and get some of these!
