About Clif Bar by Gary CEO
Clif Bar is named after Gary's father, Clifford, his childhood hero and companion throughout the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
The inspiration to create an energy bar occurred during a day-long, 175-mile bike ride with his buddy Jay. They had been gnawing on some "other" energy bars all day.
Two year later, after countless hours in Mom's kitchen, the CLIF BAR became a reality. And the mission to create a better-tasting energy bar was accomplished. Thanks, Mom!
