Sick of energy bars and gels? Even gel bites getting old? Well maybe it’s time to try some kids snacks! Like the Clif Kid Organic Twisted Fruit for example.

Twisted Fruit is another part of the “Clif Kid” line from Clif Bar. This thing looks like a licorice rope and appears to be a Fruit Roll-up alternative. I’d compare it to an Archer Farms fruit bar as well.

Health and Nutrition

First, the ingredients:

Ingredients: Organic Apple Puree, Organic Apple Juice Concentrate, Organic Flavors, Malic Acid, Pectin.

I think that’s the shortest ingredient list I’ve ever seen for a kids snack! No extra sugars or artificial colors and flavors. That’s pretty cool.

Nutrition Facts:

Calories 70
Fat 0g
Sodium 5mg
Potassium 120mg
Carbs 17g
Sugars 15g
Protein 0g

This snack is definitely better quality and contains less junk ingredients compared to a Fruit Roll-up or whatever candy is available in the snack aisle these days. It’s still a sugar rush, though. So while it’s better than other processed foods, you’re not getting the nutrition of a fresh apple.

Taste Test

The flavor I tried was sour apple. It was kind of like a cross between apple juice and a sour gummy worm! So it has real apple flavor, but a candy “sour” flavor. A very good combo, and much better than a bland or sour apple would taste!

It was nice and sweet but not disgustingly sugary. As far as taste goes, I really like it!

 

My main complaint is that the bar is too small (it’s about 1/3 the calories of an energy bar) for my adult appetite! 🙂

My final verdict is…

The Twisted Fruit is not something I plan to eat normally as a snack (an apple would be better,) and it wouldn’t qualify as a Clif Shot Blok replacement (too few calories,) but for what it is, I think it’s pretty cool.
