best selling clif bars

It’s time for the first contest of 2013 here on! This February contest is sponsored by Clif Bar, who put up a collection of their best-selling Clif Bar flavors for the lucky winner!

They just released the numbers for the 2012 best sellers and these three flavors took the nod: Chocolate Chip, Crunchy Peanut Butter, and White Chocolate Macadamia.

If you want to win some of these for yourself, keep reading for details on how to enter!


How to Enter

Here are the steps you must follow to enter the contest:

1. Comment on this blog post.

Comment on this post with the name of the flavor that you think will be a best seller at the end of 2013. Pick any flavor other than the current top 3.

Note that Clif has released numerous new flavors the past couple years, and I bet they will do the same this year, so your answer could be a currently non-existent flavor. Be creative!

  • Blueberry Crisp
  • Carrot Cake
  • Chocolate Almond Fudge
  • Chocolate Brownie

  • Iced Gingerbread (seasonal flavor)
  • Maple Nut
  • Oatmeal Raisin Walnut
  • Peanut Toffee Buzz
  • Peppermint Stick (seasonal flavor)
  • Spiced Pumpkin Pie (seasonal flavor)
  • _________

*The blank is for you to get creative and make up your own flavor!

And the “don’t pick these or you take all the fun out of it” list:

And The Winners Are…

I thoroughly enjoyed reading everyone’s answers! I was surprised, quite a few people nominated my favorite flavors, Oatmeal Raisin and Gary’s Panforte. And I’d be all over a Red Velvet Clif Bar for sure!

Without further ado…

Three drawn winners:

And the Coach’s Choice winner:

For this comment:

Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch will be the #1 flavor in 2013. C’mon… chocolate AND peanuts together in one bar? It’s my favorite and it will be #1 once everybody realizes it has chocolate AND peanut butter, combining #1 and #2 from 2012.

I know, right?


Congratulations to the winners (you’ll get an email from me shortly) and thanks to everyone for entering!


P.S. If there’s something different you want a chance to win in a giveaway, just send me an email and I’ll see what I can do!

  1. Broiled Brains

    I’m sure this flavor would be extremely popular with the endurance athlete zombies at races such as the Run For Your Lives, and with no one else catering to this market, sales of this Clif flavor will skyrocket!

  2. Red Velvet Cake

  3. I’m guessing Blueberry Crisp since that is my personal favorite! It will win because a discovery will be made that Blueberry’s are a super food. 🙂

  4. Chocolate Brownie

  5. Gary’s Panforte will be the 2013 best seller, because I think it will break into the mainstream and everyone will fall in love with it! It’s one of my favorites, but not easy to find.

  6. Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch will be the #1 flavor in 2013. C’mon….chocolate AND peanuts together in one bar? It’s my favorite and it will be #1 once everybody realizes it has chocolate AND peanut butter, combining #1 and #2 from 2012.


  7. I’m guessing oatmeal raisin walnut because i’ve always enjoyed the raisin flavors in the past and can see this one doing well in the future.

  8. Gary’s Panforte

  9. Gary’s Panforte for sure it’s less sweet than many of them and a little more sustaining

  10. Cool mint chocolate!
    The only bar with caffeine in it. Perfect for physical activity.

  11. Chocolate Chip Peanut Crunch of course, the best of both, peanuts & chocolate you can’t loose.

    I’m in B.C. so I don’t qualify, too bad!

  12. Raspberry White Chocolate with Almonds!

  13. I have been a Clif Bars fan ever since I started riding three years ago. A half bar every half hour on a century does the trick. I vary the flavors – I like variety.

  14. Create a new flavor: chocolate chip, peanut butter, banana.

  15. I’m with Jason R, chocolate chip peanut butter and banana in one bar would be awesome.
    Also great for long distance driving.

  16. Blueberry Crisp is a winner.

  17. I’ll say Blueberry Crisp, but I’d hoping for a new flavor Butter Pecan!

  18. My new favorite would be a salted caramel flavor. If you’ve ever had it in an ice cream or gelato you know what I mean–the mix of salt and sweet are great.

  19. How about Caramel Toffee or Apple with Cinnamon Kick (blood sugar stabaliser)? (from RSA)

  20. Cool Mint Chocolate – Outstanding!

  21. I am going to say Chocolate Brownie because Americans love brownies. With the average American diet consistently getting worse, people will be looking for a healthier alternative to fix their brownie craving.
