Probably not the best: they'll probably turn into a solid block when it's cold and a gooey mess when it's hot. Otherwise wouldn't be a bad choice.

I had some in emergency kits in my house, but I did eventually just dig them out and eat them.

It's the thought that counts.

Might as well eat candy bars, they are tastier and are way cheaper.

I've kept some in my car. Gone past best before date by half a year or so.
Edible, but they do get stale. Not terrible.

That said, they stand up to heat and cold better than a regular chocolate bar.

The protein is soy isolate

If you are engaged in active physical activity and need some sugar, go for it

Certainly not a health snack

Worth stating because of misleading packaging and marketing
There is nothing misleading about Cliff's marketing or packaging. They are meant to be eaten during high-intensity, high-caloric output activities like rock-climbing, long-distance cycling, rowing, running, etc., when it's important to consume as many carbohydrates (with some protein and fat) as possible rapidly.

It's when people eat these after doing 20 minutes of biceps curls and mirror flexing that they feel mislead.

Or eating one for a jog or walk around the block / 20min warm up thinking it's a work out.
Then they gain weight and wonder what's wrong?!

Maybe some of you need to learn how to read nutritional facts and know what your body needs with your lifestyle.

There's nothing misleading about the packaging. 10g protein is enough to sustain.

Stop watching get fit videos and think you need a rice/chicken diet with 25g protein bars after every set.

The carbs are sugar.
They are advertising the EXTRA added sugar separately to make it look like only 20ish grams.
The carbs are the TOTAL sugar.
