You’ve Been Waiting for It…

You are welcome in advance for this video review of the Clif Organic Energy Food: Pizza Margherita! I told you guys I would be trying and reviewing this product. A reader gave me a great idea to do it via video. Genius.

I don’t do videos often (something about watching myself back makes me squirm), but I I hope you enjoy me in all of my sweaty, non-make up glory.

If you want to get right to the review…fast forward through my sob session about my 16 mile run (go to about 2:10). If the embedded video doesn’t work/load, try THIS LINK.

Thoughts?

SUAR

These products were sent to me by CLIF Bar, but all opinions and facial expressions are my own.

  1. "Because I think it would guarantee projectile vomiting."
    I literally laughed out loud! And then again when you talked about pureeing your pizza. Ha!
    Great review. I wouldn't use this product, but the banana mango sounds kind of good!

  2. This entire video was hilarious! You need to do more! Now I'll have your voice in my head whenever I read your blog ;)

    I needed a large drink of water after you tasted the Pizza Margherita! I don't know how you kept going at that point. Thanks for being the guinea pig for us!

  3. You totally need to do more videos. This was awesome! I am crying at my desk as the snow pounds down outside my window. Glad I got that hill run in at lunch. OK, thanks for this. And no thanks to Pizza Margherita goop, thanks, anyway, Clif. I will be happy to try the two other flavors, though, as they are right up my ally!

  7. Love the video! I give you two thumbs up for tasting that, I gagged watching YOU try it! Also, as a fellow runner with stomach issues I feel your pain, but one of my mantras has become Shut Up And Run, thanks to you!

  8. You are brave to taste that stuff. I'm such a squeamish baby about my food, I couldn't have done it. Not even for the $50 you were willing to pay for the potty. I'm still waiting for a Pinot Grigio flavor.

  9. You are so funny - I would love to see more videos! You made my night!

  10. Maybe if I was on the verge of bonking and desperate for any source of calories, I could do it.

  11. I'm skeptical, but at a pizza fanatic I should really give this a try.

  12. Loved the video! Did you try the fruity one?

  13. I loved your video!!! Especially the expressions on your face when you took a sip of the pizza margarita stuff. Really funny! I agree, you should do videos more often. All the best for Jerusalem. Cheers Lisbeth

  14. Definitely odd sounding, maybe we can get Dr Ukaka's opinion as well?

  15. I love the video -- you have the cutest voice!! I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only one who gets "chased by the brown bear" frequently :( Thank goodness for corner stores.

    1. Hahaha..."chased by the brown bear" I've never heard that, but am adding it to my repertoire.

  16. so...looking at the size of these packets.... those things are huge! I can't imagine wanting to have them banging on me in a marathon. The soreness wouldn't be from running, it would be from bruising by the packets. Headline will reading "Runner sustained multiple contusions from gel packets" or maybe a film "When Nutrition Fights Back"

  17. That was fantastic. Thank you for the review!

  18. You have a new career waiting for you - video blogger! That review was the BOMB.

  19. This deserves an Academy Awards nomination. True story.

    Oh, and your voice. Not what I expected at all.

  20. Wait. You don't speak with a Puerto Rican accent like you do in my head when I read your posts?!
    That was fun. Thanks for sharing.

  21. Great vlog! Keep them coming! And pizza should only be eaten in solid form on a run like Dean Karnazes use to do. :)

  22. your vid is just as funny as your blog entries!!! love it! you remind me of some stand ups haha!

  23. OMG your face after you tried the margherita pizza one!!! Classic!

  24. I, too, had an absolutely AWFUL 16 mile run yesterday (and it was an indoor run since wind chills were -20, so that made it even worse). I was tired by mile 5, my feet hurt, my podcasts were all boring, my music was just irritating, and all the other people on track were constantly in my way. Definitely a crappy run, and I hated every minute of it. Amazed that I didn't quit early, but I've adopted your mantra- so I just shut up!! (OK- I did whine to my hubby a little in a text. He told me to suck it up, buttercup.) I am just so happy to hear that even uber-runners like you have craptastic runs! Yay! I'm not the only sucky one!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh, and by the way-- you said the sweet potato/sea salt one was ok, but your face when you ate it said 'not so much' :-D

    1. I think it was a taste shock initially but then I kinda liked it
