You’ve got to hand it to Clif’s R&D people: They know how to make a good product better.  The Clif Shot Bloks ($35 box, 18 packages) now come in six-cube sleeves, which reduce packaging and make for easier storage when you’re on the move. Consider them Gummi Bears for athletes. Skiers will like that the gel cubes don’t freeze in the field, effectively refuel you and slide nicely into a zipped pocket. We’ve also discovered that they’re handy to keep in a desk drawer during the off-season for when we bonk after our midday trail run.
