Lori from Lärabar sent me several bars to try and review! I love the ingredients on these wholesome natural bars. Simple ingredient lists make me happy! These bars are basically fruit and nuts. No added chemicals or preservatives... if stranded without a meal, these are a great option.
Let's start with the Tropical Fruit Tart bar...
I have to be honest, this was a bit of a disappointment to me. The combination of flavors did not make my taste buds do a little dance. I usually LOVE tropical flavors. This one didn't dazzle. The texture, size, and ingredient list sure did make me happy, though. I'd eat another, but I would choose other flavors over this one.
INGREDIENTS: DATES, PINEAPPLE UNSWEETENED COCONT, ALMONDS, EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL, CASHEWS, ORANGE JUICE CONCENTRATE, ORANGE PEEL
Next on the list: Peanut Butter & Jelly
Who doesn't love PB&J, really? I was so stoked to try this flavor! I had seen them floating around blogland, but I was never fortunate enough to run across them in stores. It didn't live up to my expectations... perhaps I set the bar too high. I liked it okay. I liked it better than the Tropical Fruit Tart.
INGREDIENTS: DATES, PEANUTS, UNSWEETENED CHERRIES, SALT
I'm totally digging that ingredient list!!
Next up, Cashew Cookie!
This was AWESOME! I love cashews. Now I love Lärabar Cashew Cookie. YUM! I loved that you could taste the actual cashews. I loved the simpleness of the flavor. If you are a cashew fan, I HIGHLY recommend this one!
INGREDIENTS: CASHEWS, DATES
Oh yeah! That's what I'm talking 'bout! How can you go wrong with that combination of ingredients?! Ya just can't! Simplicity at it's best!
And finally, my favorite of the bunch, Lemon Bar.
Alrighty, gotta be honest here... I wasn't looking forward to this bar. LOL! However, I was VERY pleasantly surprised! It was absolutely delish! Perfectly tart! It didn't taste like lemon Pledge, which strangely, is what I was expecting. It was perfect! Cherry Pie Lärabar is still my favorite (not reviewed in this post), but this was a close second! What can I say? I like 'em tart!
INGREDIENTS: DATES, CASHEWS, ALMONDS, LEMON JUICE CONCENTRATE, NATURAL LEMON
OVERALL I would definitely recommend Lärabars. I have recommended them, and I will continue to do so! While a couple of the bars weren't my favorite, they still weren't bad. They just weren't my thang! The flavors that I enjoyed, BOY OH BOY, I REALLY enjoyed them!!! and I plan on buying more in the not so distant future!
The best part about these bars...
- NO ADDED SUGAR
- GLUTEN FREE
- DAIRY FREE
- SOY FREE
