Things That Make You Go... Mmmm!
LaraBar has won me over! Before trying these bars, I did not believe they could possibly be too interesting and tasty with so few - raw - ingredients. I was wrong. (Wait, did I say those words?...don't tell my husband!)
Seriously, these are tasty little energy bars; a testament to real, clean food. Nothing processed or refined in a LaraBar. They are vegan, and also gluten-, corn-, and soy-free.
So far I have tried the Apple Pie, Banana Cookie, and Chocolate Coconut Chew flavors. They are all delicious and distinct in their flavor, and although they are sweet because they are made with dates and other raw fruits, this sweetness is natural and balanced with raw nuts... really enjoyable. I can't decide which is my favorite, and there are still more flavors to try!
These bars may be a little more expensive than some (though not all) energy/snack bars. You can always stock up when your retailer runs a special, and I think this is one of those cases where you get what you pay for - a premium energy bar.
Visit their website for facts and nutritional notes on each flavor, as well as their fun Humm-ble Beginnings. Their T-shirts look sweet as well!
