Over on this side of the Atlantic, there's this chain of to-go supermarkets with stores on every train station. Earlier this year I found out that these tiny stores sold Clif Bars at basically cost price. They're pretty great!

Sadly, a mere few weeks after I found out they stopped selling it. They now sell their own bars, which are much more generic. I have yet to find another place where you can buy them at all over here that doesn't mark it up into the stratosphere. :(

Apparently you can buy a 192 pack of Clif Bars via their website. You'll probably get raked over the coals with shipping, though.

I wish I could get a bulk order of Quest bars somewhere local. The sales tax is going to be an order of magnitude less than the shipping. And Amazon is more expensive than the gas stations here.
