Surprise triple hit from Clio yogurt bar
Yogurt and cereal have a common label – nutrition and health, which are in line with the current higher nutritional food consumption demand. After their respective recognition days, they are now among the cross category popularity groups as food hot CP. But it is not difficult to find that the combination form of yogurt and cereal in the domestic market is mainly split packaging or top cup, which is slightly simple and rough.
For example, the opening mode of “yogurt cereal” is basically inseparable from the two modes of “yogurt block + cereal” or “cereal poured into yogurt mixing”. The matching method is simple, and you can mix it at home. However, as two super large items, only these two ways of eating are somewhat “wasteful”. What sparks can they produce? Clio snakes gave us a perfect demonstration!
Clio makes yoghurt and cereal closer to each other, and makes them into frozen yoghurt sticks to create a richer taste and eating experience, unlock more eating scenes, and become the best choice for afternoon tea desserts.

In addition to the unique creativity in the form of products, Clio is also very concerned about the current diet trend. Under the trend of reducing sugar, Clio has upgraded and optimized its classic products and launched a series of low sugar yogurt bars, which can well meet this demand without affecting the taste or enjoyment of the products. This low sugar range contains 1 gram of sugar and 8 grams of protein. It’s a combination of berry and peach flavors. It’s a guilt free snack to eat.
Heather Cox, President of cliosnacks, said: “we are pleased to launch this less sugar bar, enabling the brand to introduce Clio to new audiences, including specific consumers who follow a ketogenic diet and consumers who are sensitive to sugar and calories.” Undoubtedly, the low sugar series make the brand open the door for more consumers to know Clio and improve the brand awareness.
At the same time, Clio is also committed to providing more portable product sizes, such as the Greek yoghurt mini series wrapped in dark chocolate.

The gluten free mini range offers four flavors: vanilla, strawberry, peanut butter and salty caramel. Each dark chocolate wrapped yogurt block contains 3-4g protein and billions of probiotics, which is designed to provide and enhance the functionality of the product. It is very suitable to be used as a snack on the way to work or as a delicious food to share with each other after yoga class.
