Today I'm singing the praises of larabars ! Why? Because they are just awesome, and I felt the need to profess my love in public.
I was a bit late to the larabarparty because I wasn't digging the whole "using dates as sweetener" thing. But, after reading about them in several blogs, and seeing that they have NO weirdo ingredients, I figured I'd give them a try.
I started with the Lemon Bar flavor. OH MAN, these things are goooood. The lemon flavor is just so delicious - I'm salivating just thinking about them right now!
Take a moment to look at the ingredient lists. For example, the ingredients in the Cookie Dough flavor are: Cashews, dates, chocolate chips, salt. They are calorie dense because of the nuts, but they can definitely fit in most healthy living plans.
So how'd they taste?
My favorites are the Cookie Dough and Peanut butter flavors (and not just because I bought a whole box of each). They are chocolatey and chewy and just very yummy.
The Carrot Cake comes in a close second. It has all the spices and texture you'd expect in an actual carrot cake. Delish!
The Brownie flavor was good, but the least favorite for me. The date flavor comes through on this one and sort of overpowers the chocolate a bit. Still yummy, but not SUPER yummy for my taste. Giveaway time!
Want to try some of these? Well, since I do have a whole BOX of the cookie dough and peanut butter flavors, I'm going to give one lucky reader a chance to try these two flavors! The winner of this giveaway will get one each of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip bars!
Just leave a comment answering this question: What is your absolute, most favorite dessert of all time? (Pretend that sugar, fat and calories don't exist!)
Open to everyone, you have until Friday, 7/30 at Midnight Eastern time to enter. I'll announce the winner on Saturday, 7/31.
Larabar is in no way involved with this review or giveaway. All items were purchased with my own hard-earned cash and giveaway will be funded by me as well.
