LARABAR Review/Giveaway

A while back I was sent some LARABAR'S to try.  



I received the  Carrot Cake,Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Banana Bread, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter & Jelly.  They also sent me one of the  Jocalat  Chocolate Mint Bar to try.  I love Chocolate Mint as much as I love  peanut butter.
  
LARABAR'S  are Gluten Free, Kosher. No Food Colorings, Additives, Preservatives. LARABAR'S  contain approximately 23-32 grams of carbohydrates.

LARABAR'S are good for a Raw Diet or if you are a Vegan/Vegetarian.

            LARABAR and JOCALAT are made entirely from plant-based foods.

LARABAR is a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits,nuts and spices.  Made from whole food, each flavor contains no more than nine ingredients.  Pure and simple, just as nature intended. 


                           I can't decided which one I want to try first.  


I finally decided to try the Peanut Butter & Jelly first.   Mainly because I'm obsessed with anything peanut butter.   My twin sister  just happen to be at my house when I got the LARABAR's.  Does that mean I have to share?  I hate  sharing my food, but she is my twin sister.  Being the nice sister that I am, I gave her half of the bar. She really liked the taste of the LARABAR.  I loved the texture of the bar and the taste was great.  It tasted just like peanut butter and jelly

Dated, Peanuts, Unsweetened Cherries, Sea Salt
Dates, Peanuts and Chocolate Chips

Carrots, Dates, Almonds,Walnuts, Raisins, Pineapple and Coconut





Banana Bread - Bananas, Dates and Almonds
DELICIOUS












If placed in the freezer or outside in cold temperatures, LÄRABAR will become firmer, but will not freeze. Similarly,  LÄRABAR (with the exception of the flavors containing chocolate chips) will not melt when heated.

JŎCALAT is an organic chocolate food bar made from fruits, nuts and Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate. Each flavor contains no more than seven simple, organic ingredients that are deliciously rich, without added sugars, and  free of dairy, soy, and gluten. With JŎCALAT, we're committed to the use of Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate and organic ingredients.

Organic Dates, Organic Almonds, Unsweetened Chocolate and Organic Cocoa Powder
I love anything Chocolate Mint, but this one was  not my favorite.  I think it has to do with the Unsweetened Chocolate and Cocoa Powder.  I prefer  milk chocolate and mint.  The mint  flavor in this bar was great, it was the chocolate flavor that I was not liking very much.

 I thought the LARABAR'S were very filling.. The LARABAR  worked great for me..  I was  at  the Iowa Beef Expo recently, where a cheeseburger was costing  $5.00.  I hate to pay that for a  freak in cheeseburger, plus it's  not the healthiest food to eat.  When  I go to these things I   tend to act like a bag lady.  I'm always packing, food that is.  I put one of the LARABAR's in my purse so I would have something to eat if  I got hungry.   It was great, I didn't have to worry about it melting or turning mushy in my purse.  It was as firm as when I put it in my purse.  YOU GOT TO LOVE THAT.  You don't know how many times I've put other bars in my purse in case I got hungry, only to be  disappointed that it was in no condition to eat when I was ready for it.



LARABAR'S  has no more than nine ingredients in their bars, compared to other bars that have a lot  of  ingredients in them. EXAMPLE Power Bars
Harvest - Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip - Box of 15
IngredientsHOLE OATS, BROWN RICE SYRUP, EVAPORATED CANE JUICE SYRUP, SOY CRISPS (SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, RICE FLOUR, BARLEY MALT, SALT), PEANUT FLOUR, HONEY, CHOCOLATE CHIPS (SUGAR, CHOCOLATE, MILKFAT, SOY LECITHIN, NATURAL VANILLA FLAVOR), RICE CRISPS (MILLED RICE, SUGAR, SALT, BARLEY MALT), SOY PROTEIN ISOLATE, INULIN (FROM CHICORY), PEANUT BUTTER, AND LESS THAN 2% OF ALMOND BUTTER, OAT FIBER, VEGETABLE GLYCERIN, NATURAL FLAVOR (CONTAINS PEANUT),MINERALS: CALCIUM PHOSPHATE, POTASSIUM PHOSPHATE, FERROUS FUMARATE (IRON),VITAMINS: ASCORBIC ACID (VITAMIN C), VITAMIN B6 HYDROCHLORIDE, RIBOFLAVIN (VITAMIN B2), THIAMINE HYDROCHLORIDE (VITAMIN B1). CONTAINS ALMOND, MILK, PEANUT AND SOY INGREDIENTS.
