LARABAR: Another Great Snack Bar

LARABAR: Apple Pie

Check out these ingredients (rather lack thereof)!!!!

  1. Dates
  2. Almonds
  3. Unsweetened Apples
  4. Walnuts
  5. Raisins
  6. Cinnamon
That is one hell of an impressive ingredients lists - no preservatives, no artificial colors/flavorings and you know what each of those ingredients is.

And these bars are: Gluten Free, Dairy & Soy Free, Non-GMO, Vegan and Kosher.

Lets run the numbers:

Calories: 190
Total Fat: 10g
Saturated Fat: 1g (wish it were zero, but at least it's naturally derived from the nuts)
Trans Fat: 0g (nice!)
Poly Fat: 4.5g
Mono Fat: 4g
Cholesterol: 0mg
Sodium: 10mg (not too shabby)
Potassium: 280mg (excellent)
Total Carbohydrate: 24g
Fiber: 5g (not bad)
Sugar: 18g (naturally derived)
Protein: 4g

So what do these bars taste like? 

Well, it's kinda hard to explain.  You definately know you're eating something healthy.  They are soft but with some density.  They are fruity and they smell great.  You really need to try it for yourself.

The only downside to this snack is the cost, it's about $6 for five bars.

LARABAR also comes in 19 different flavors.

So keep it on hand as a healthy snack in a pinch.
