I had the opportunity to sample a few of the Sierra Trail Mix flavor and found it to be a decent tasting bar with the peanut and cocoa/chocolate dominating the taste. It was not a stand out flavor for me in the same way that the Carrot Cake or Coconut Chocolate Chip is, but everyone has their favorite flavors and with 17 flavors of Clif Bar to choose from, Sierra Trail Mix might be yours.
