I have been on a wonderful "trying new bars" streak lately! Not complaining at all! I absolutely love trying new flavors from different companies. I have been seeing LARABAR posts all over Instagram so I was becoming very intrigued! I contacted the company and was thrilled when this package arrived at my doorstep!
They asked me to pick four flavors to try and review. Let me tell you, that was not an easy task! With flavors like Banana Bread, Blueberry Muffin, Apple Pie, Cashew Cookie, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Pecan Pie, and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (just to name a few) how was I going to decide?!
I finally narrowed it down and decided on Chocolate Chip Brownie, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Key Lime Pie. I love that they even included a thoughtful little note :)
I have said it before and I will say it again...it is easy to make a bar taste good...but the real task is having a bar that tastes good AND is good for you! If I just want something that tastes good I will go eat a Snickers bar! After reading more about these bars, I was very happy about how healthy they are! LARABARs are gluten free, and made from a blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts, and spices. With the exception of the UBER bars, which contain honey, LARABARs are vegan friendly too! Each flavor has no more than nine ingredients.
So they got the healthy part covered, but how do they taste?! Eeny Meeny Miny Moe! Key Lime Pie was up first.
You can see all the pieces of nut and fruit! Unfortunately for me, my husband loves Key Lime Pie so I had to share this bar with him.
I love the texture of these bars! Soft and chewy. The flavor was great! I could really taste the citrus and coconut.
My husband really really enjoyed this flavor!! This bar has 220 calories, 10g fat, 31g carb, and 4g protein. We would both absolutely eat this bar again!
While my husband's favorite dessert is Key Lime Pie, my top pick is Carrot Cake!
Similar macros on this bar. Only 190 calories, 8g fat, 32g carb, and 3g protein.
Still that same great chewy texture. The fruit and nuts give this bar the perfect amount of sweetness.
I will say it wasn't exactly what I was expecting in terms of taste. I was expecting a little more carrot flavor. I will say that it still tasted amazing! I could really taste the cinnamon which I love!
Let's try something for all those chocolate lovers out there!! Chocolate Chip Brownie! 200 calories, 9g fat, 31g carb, and 4g protein. This was awesome! Nice and chocolately, but I still felt like I was eating a healthy bar. It wasn't too chocolately or too sweet which I liked.
Actual chocolate chips throughout the bar gave it a great texture. Yum!!
I saved the one I was most excited about for last. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough! 210 calories, 11g fat, 28g carb, and 4 protein.
I actually took this one to work with me. I work as a nanny and we just happened to be at the park on that particular day. It was very hot and I had this bar in my lunch bag...getting all melty...
Oh goodness was it fantastic! It was slightly messy because of all the chocolate chips, but I was not complaining! It was like eating warm, gooey, cookie dough!! Hands down my favorite out of all four!
I would absolutely recommend giving these bars a try! If you cannot decide which one to try first, try two at once!
I will be trying more flavors in the very near future! These are sold at most local grocery stores and at Whole Foods. You can also order them online. LARABAR is just one of the five different lines of bars that they carry. They also have UBER, ALT, RENOLA, and JOCALAT. So many different kinds and flavors of bars! Good luck just picking a few :)
Thank you LARABAR for allowing me to try some of your tasty and healthy bars! I really enjoyed them!
