LARABARS review + giveaway

Four empty Larabar wrappers.



I think that says it all.  I could not get enough of these.

The LARABAR is truly energy in it’s purest form. 

LARABARS are:
-       gluten free
-       dairy free
-       soy free
-       non-gmo
-       vegan
-       kosher
-       no added sweeteners or sugars*
-       Fair Trade Certified cocoa and coffee
-       No added sulfites
-       No preservatives
*Does not include the Chocolate Chip varieties. Chocolate chip flavors are made with a simple, 4-ingredient chocolate chip that consists of Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla. While no dairy is used to make our chocolate chips, they are made on a line that also produces chocolate chips made with dairy and soy. Due to possible cross-contact, the chips we use may contain trace amounts of dairy or soy from other chips made at the facility; thus we cannot claim these products as Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan. source

Most LARABARS have less than 200 calories to them.  Here's a screenshot from LARABAR of the Chocolate Chip CherryTorte.  


LARABAR prides itself on using minimal ingredients to make these fine tasting bars.  The sweet flavor of these bars comes from dates.   The maximum amount of ingredients in one of the bars is 9 ingredients.  That is amazing!  I didn't have one of those 9 ingredient bars, but I will share with you the ingredient lists for the bars I did sample.  







So simple.  I love it.  And the flavor is outstanding.  I love the fine texture each bar offered.   

When I opened the box, everyone stood around me like baby birds with their mouths open waiting for a sample.  I really didn’t want to share, but kind of felt bad for them.  So share I did.  I didn’t share all of the bars.  Are you kidding me?  I only shared the Peanut Butter Cookie and Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte.  Both bars received thumbs up from the Boudreau’s.  There will not be any pics of these two bars because they were devoured within minutes.  It was not pretty.  

I did stash away the Apple Pie and Lemon Bars for myself at a later date.    I wasn’t sure what to think of the flavor names and wasn’t sure if I’d even enjoy them.  But, man are they tasty!  



Lemon Bar

Apple Pie

I highly recommend you get these and eat them.  All of them.  I'm already building my list for my next trip to Target so I can stock up.  They make great grab & go snacks for anytime.  I love to keep them in my desk at school so I can snack on them during the day.  They are quite filling and good for you as well.
