Flavor Flav




What faster way to hitch a ride down memory lane than via the flavors of holidays past? The tastemakers at Clif Bar trigger this gustatory nostalgia with their CLIF BAR SEASONAL FLAVORS ($1.29/bar, clifbar.com). It’s hard to play favorites when your choices are Iced Gingerbread, Spiced Pumpkin Pie, and Pear Apple Strudel, but if pressed, I’d give Pumpkin Pie my vote (reminds me of autumn’s primo temps). Despite riding the tastes-too-good-tobe- good-for-you border, these perfectly packable energy bars are organic; supply plenty of vitamins, protein, and fiber; and avoid trans fats, hydrogenated oils, and that nasty high-fructose corn syrup. Bizzlin’. . . .
