A Quick One


Today's been a whirlwind of computer staring-homework doing-intervention marathon watching ,
apple turnover/berry turnovers/herbed cheese filled turnover baking- big salad eating-and after i post this entry -Big Bang watching and couch sitting ,filled day.
But because I didn't finish my homework in the middle of the night for once I thought I'd spit out a quick one.

The larabars that I was super excited to find , well either you people are lying to me or it's just me.

Cashew Cookie Larabar

I tried this one first because I love cashews. The cashew bits I adored. The sweeteness factor or lack there of . well maybe it was sweet just oddly sweet. I found it almost sour but I guess that's the natural sweeteners used ? I don't know. I had two bites of this and while I wanted to like it I passed it along to the bf who said that he prefers Clif bars. He should prefer them , he's been eating them all before I can try all the flavors.
I think I would only try this particular bar again only if I eliminated other sweeteners and sugars from my diet. I figure thats why it tasted so odd to me.

Cocoa Coconut Chew Larabar

I just grabbed this flavor randomly because there weren't many flavors there. I liked this one better than the cashew cookie but it still had the " sour" factor for me. The bf agreed. Again , I would only try it if my diet changed.

What do you think about Larabars? Yummy? Not your thing? How Come?

  1. Hey girl! That odd taste is from the dates they use in the bars (one of the main few ingredients- there are no real sweetners in the bar). Laras are kind of a love it or leave it bar. Have you tried the clif mojos? They're our favorites!

  2. Yeah, larabars are definitely not my thing...They are too sweet and boring for me! I guess I don't see the point in eating condensed dried fruits and nuts when I'd rather eat them plain and whole. With cheaper price, too. lol. ;-) I'm cheap!

  3. Erica- AHHH I didn't even read the ingredients on the Larabars or I would have known about the dates. but yes now that you mentioned it, its the dates that are the taste Im not loving. very disappointing. I haven't tried a clif mojo bar yet but I have my eyes peeled for them. The variety of clif bars in grocery stores here is seriously lacking.

    sophia - YEY! I'm glad I'm not the only one. And yes teh price is a bit much . They were over 2 dollars a piece here.
