Everyone needs a quick healthy snack that they can keep on hand when on the go and I’ve been seeing and hearing about LaraBars everywhere and wanted to give them a try. The company was nice enough to send me a few to review. I wanted to review one of each of their 4 types of bars


LaraBar-carrot cake
Alt- lemon pound cake
Jocalat-chocolate mint
Uber- apple turnover


I picked flavors I knew my husband would like because I will eat almost anything, even if it’s kind of gross, if it’s healthy. So he is a better candidate to review than I am 🙂 and I really like to see what healthy things I can get him to eat.


[sorry I forgot to take a picture of the Uber Apple Turnover …just imagine something chunky and sticky :)]

Uber Apple Turnover

*I liked it a little sticky and a little sour but yum yum. The texture of the dried apple was a bit spongy.

*My husband said *grossed out face* don’t like overall taste, sour, sticky, unpleasant texture, bad aftertaste, texture changes from crunchy to chewy




Jocalat Chocolate Mint

*I could barely swallow my bite, very bitter tastes like dirt

*He said not good but kept eating more, a friend said smells like wine

So overall. We only like the original Larabar. But what they got right they really got right. Yum


I received these samples of Larabar from the company for free but the review is just because I found it to be yummy (or not)

    I found the choc mint one really nice tasted how it should. You should try chocolate chip cookies dough that’s my favorite

      It was just too intense chocolate flavor with no sweetness…..chip cookie dough might be better if it is a little less chocolately I will have to give it a try
