Until now, those were the only two CLIF brand products I had tried. Albeit, I have had at least one box of every flavor under my belt. But I just had a taste of the Shot Blok Energy Chews and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised. The strawberry flavor tasted a little bit like Jell-O but was a nice texture and easy to chew (I was expecting more of a gummi bear consistency). I would have liked it to be a bit more tangy, so I think I'll try the citrus one next time… for $2.89 at Sport Chek, I'd definitely try another.
They are actually quite practical to eat during an intense workout, but probably more so for a day of hiking, climbing, or intervals of activity, a “chew” might be nice in between. For runs I still prefer gels or good old electrolyte drink; my favorite gels are usually most citrus/berry tastes (just NEVER any chocolate flavored ones).
Anyways, my overall impression of the CLIF Shot Blok Energy Chews is quite good after my first experience. I’m looking forward to trying their other chews… especially during my next workout!
PS. Definitely only eat them all at once if you are planning on doing a fairly intense workout. For 30 minute jogs or a low-intensity routine gym visit you shouldn't be eating any gels or bloks at all!
