Product Review: Larabar

Meg of Megan's Munchies has frequently blogged about her love of Larabar, and I became intrigued. I began to be on the lookout for them and on Wednesday I finally found some at Save-On Foods in Nelson! Only an hour away from here!

They didn't have the greatest selection - perhaps only four or five different kinds - and they didn't have any of the really delicious-sounding new flavours, but I did pick up a couple ($2 each; bear in mind that I'm on a budget!): the apple pie and the cherry pie. Since coming home Wednesday night, I have consumed both of them.

In short, I liked them. I'm not terribly fond of dates, but although both are full of dates, I could handle them.
The bars are rather sweet, however. While I should be the last person to complain about this, I am just glad the bars are small because the flavours are really intense.

I love that these bars are made with whole, natural ingredients and are apparently vegan. They are high in fibre and other nutrients, and they make a nutritious little snack.

I'm really hoping I can find some of their other flavours, like the ones containing chcocolate and such, and there even appears to be a tiramisu version, too! You cannot go wrong with tiramisu!

Thanks Meg!

I am so excited that you tried them. My faves are cinnamon roll, peanut butter, and banana bread. Unfortunately, tiramisu has been suggested, but it is not an offered flavor.

There is an award waiting for you on my blog!

Thanks for talking about something totally new to me. I don't know if I would like it but would taste it.

Thanks Meg!

Helene: I'd definitely try just one to see how you like them. They do make a pretty good snack.

I'm going to have to try these- I saw them on the television show, Good Eats, on the Food Network and I was intrigued by them!

Chrystal Ocean said...

They sound very tasty but are too pricey for me. Must be a way of making something similar from scratch, right? Anyone out there with a recipe or two? (Preferably not involving baking.)

Wandering Coyote said...

Chrystal: they are no-bake and basically consist of dates, nuts, and other fruits. Nothing iffy or secretive in them at all. It's just a matter of figuring out the composition.
