It's not a secret how I feel about Larabar. Oh Larabar, how I love thee... let me count the ways.
Here's a cut and paste of my review on them, the original post is HERE.
Have you heard of the wonderful mighty Larabar? Wonderful, convenient, no preservatives, no added colors, soy, gluten, or dairy, Larabar? None of the bars contain over nine ingredients and they are a raw food. They are amazing. When I first started eating Paleo/Primal it was awesome to find these. They were perfect to eat if I was out and about and didn't want to grab convenience food. Great to just  keep in my purse, OK I still keep them in my purse. I took some on the cruise with me too! I know right, the cruise where they had all I could eat, that had a 24 hr pizza and ice cream bar- I brought nuts, jerky, Larabars and snagged fruit during meals to keep with me.

Have you tried Larabar? What is your favorite and why? I'd love to try Cinnamon Roll next, but I haven't been able to find it! But here's what I have tried...

I had originally tried Larabars in Cashew Cookie, Banana Bread, Carrot Cake, Apple Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Cherry Pie, Coconut Cream Pie and Cherry Pie.  I have also tried the Jocolat- in Mint, Chocolate and Coffee- even if the chocolate in these have sugar. My favorite of those is Carrot cake and the Cookie Dough. The Carrot cake has... wait for it... raisins. You don't know/remember how I feel about raisins? Well, let me refresh your memory- click HERE. That's right folks, the mom that picks raisins out of her own food to give to her kids, has named the Carrot cake Larabar as one of my favorite flavors.  It tastes like Carrot cake. While I love the Cookie dough, its a rare treat because of the sugar in the chocolate. The Cashew Cookie needs a shout out too! It has just the right amount of sweetness, it very balanced and the buttery cashews- NOM.  A big plus is that it only has TWO ingredients. 

I thought I would love the chocolate ones right off the bat and pick them as my favorites. They are really good but surprisingly I like the non chocolates better. It may be because I just don't need a lot of that refined sugar sweet anymore. Not that these are overly sweet but if you cut refined sugars out of your diet, you aren't used to that sugar sweet anymore. If that makes sense. My two youngest girls though LOVE Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

I was so smitten with Larabar that I contacted them to let them know, what nice people working there! I told them I loved the bars I've tried and wanted to write a review. Especially when there were new flavors to try that I couldn't find at the commissary, Target or Wholefoods. Larabar sent me Ginger Snap, Blueberry Muffin, Pecan Pie and Chocolate Chip Brownie. To inhale... I mean try. NOM NOM. 
THANK YOU so much Larabar! Shout out to Erica (and Annie!) who was so nice!

Speaking of nice, this company has great customer service. They are a people company. They post on their facebook, reply to posts- and I'm talking every. post. and twitter too.

My only "cons" to post are that my eldest can't have a lot of nuts, but there is the Banana Bread bar which only has almonds. That's the one nut she can have.
