Clif Bars...... Score!!!

A case of Clif bars (12 bars) usually sells for $19.99 CDN. They were on sale for $9.99 at Zehrs (supermarket) yesterday. I purchased 4 cases: Carrot cake, Oatmeal raisin walnut, Peanut toffee buz. and Chocolate chip. I use these bars when I start doing high mileage runs.

On my search for a photograph of a case of Clif Bars, I came across an article in 'Outside Magazine Online' that was about great places to work. Clif was one of them and I can't believe how they treat their staff. Here is a small clip from the article.....

"THEY NEED THOSE ENERGY BARS! And how. Clif offers its 182 Berkeley employees 32 fitness classes a week in an on-site gym/studio, supports two and a half hours per week of on-the-clock workouts, and reimburses up to $350 for race fees. Two full-time staff trainers provide one-on-one sessions and coordinate with the company's wellness manager to create constantly evolving athletic programs; this spring, one trainer gave dawn-patrol surfing lessons. "We ask people what they want," says Clif's strength-and-conditioning coach, Stephanie Wu, "and management encourages us to give it to them."
ASK JEEVES: A "concierge service" includes on-site car washing and haircuts, and subsidized take-home organic dinners. Dogs and kids are welcome anytime.

Sounds like a great place to be!

Gotta run.

They are on sale in Calgary too - although not as many flavours.
