EMERYVILLE, CA– Clif Bar & Company, a leading maker of nutritious and organic foods, today introduced the category-first CLIF Nut Butter Filled Energy Bar in Canada in four flavours: Chocolate Hazelnut Butter, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Coconut Almond Butter and Peanut Butter.
Made in Canada with delicious organic ingredients, each bar offers for the first time a creamy nut butter filling inside a nutritious energy bar. Crafted for athletes and adventurers, CLIF Nut Butter Filled Energy Bar combines the fat from nut butters and carbohydrates from multiple sources.
“We’re excited to bring CLIF Nut Butter Filled Energy Bar to Canada,” said Kevin Cleary, CEO at Clif Bar & Company. “This is a whole new kind of energy bar, made with organic ingredients and filled with an energy food people love – creamy nut butters.”
Each recipe contains non-GMO ingredients and does not contain partially hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup or artificial flavours. All four flavours will be available at select and major retailers across Canada starting now.
