    No, but they know a lot of trivia and work for the postal service on frozen rebel outpost worlds.

    That's a really odd statement to make...

    Clif Kid Zbar (chocolate chip), 50 cents at Trader Joe's:
    Size: 36g
    Calories: 130
    Fat: 4g
    Sodium: 100mg
    Potassium: 140mg
    Protein: 3g

    Now let's compare that to...

    Clif Bar (chocolate chip), $1 at Trader Joe's:
    Size: 68g
    Calories: 240
    Fat: 5g
    Sodium: 140mg
    Potassium: 250mg
    Protein: 10g

    Approximately twice the size and calories, yet proportionally much lower in fat and sodium while 40% more protein per gram. And as for this weird "palm oil" claim...

    So, there's a lot of good stuff, and the oil they use is a healthy oil with noted benefits, not palm oil.

    Bottom line, I'm not seeing how the Clif Zbars are better than the regular Clif bars for a full lunch.

    No solid food, just a can of Sprite.

    I had a slice of left-over Costco pizza which was surprisingly tastier than normal!

    I ate breakfast at the Old Country Buffet, so about all I had for lunch was some animal crackers. Later on I had some trail mix. I didn't have much for dinner either. I chopped up an apple and a banana and mixed in some peach yogurt.

    A slurpie/slush/squishy/icy/whatever you want to call it. My car died (battery) so I got to walk about 4 miles home. On the way home I stopped at a gas station at got my drink (strawberry). And of course I didn't have my running gear with me.

    I must've mixed up two different types of energy bars. Some of them are awful for you, but apparently one of those isn't Clif. I pick up the kids' version because they're better for a kid than granola bars, which are pretty much candy bars with some oatmeal or something tossed in.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I guess it depends on the granola bar. The Quaker Chewy granola bars fit that description. However, I kept buying them instead of the Nutrigrain bars because I think they had less fat and/or sodium. Lately, I started getting the Nutrigrain bars though, along with the Annie's bunny-shaped crackers, which are organic. I get them at Costco as snacks to put in my lunch. I've also bought some trail mix. Raisins, nuts and M&M's. That's kind of healthy except for the M&M's.

    I have zero idea what I'll be doing for lunch today.

    Must have, regular Clif Bars are awesome. The Kid ZBars seem like they'd be better for kids since the selection seems to be tons of sweet flavors (I prefer flavors with more nuance from the Clif bars, but adult and child tastes are different in general), but for me the Clif bars carry me pretty far without the bonk of other energy bars that are full of sugar.
