Today I will be reviewing some LÄRABAR's and you have probably seen them in your local grocery store, pharmacy or convenience store. Larabar's are a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Made from whole food, each flavour contains no more than nine ingredients! Pure and simple just as nature intended!

Larabars have quality standards for all of there ingredients, they are:
- Gluten Free

- Dairy Free*
- Soy Free*
- All Natural
- Vegan*
- Kosher
- Fair Trade Certified™ Cocoa and Coffee
- No added sugars or sweeteners*
- Non GMO
- No added sulfates
- No preservatives, fillers, or colourings

*Does not include Chocolate Chip varieties.  Chocolate chip flavours are made with a simple 4-ingredient chocolate chip that consists of Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla. While no dairy is used to make our chocolate chips, they are made on a line that also produces chocolate chips made with dairy and soy. Due to possible cross contact, the chips we use may contain trace amounts of dairy or soy from other chocolate chips made at the facility: thus we cannot claim these products as Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan.

As soon as these arrived in my mailbox, me and my boyfriend couldn't resist. (Which is why two have already been opened before I got to take a photo haha).
He grabbed for the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip and I grabbed Apple Pie.

By now we have both tried all of the flavours we were sent! I loved every single one and there was nothing I didn't like about these bars! My boyfriend liked them so much we went out and even bought a couple of new flavours which we still have yet to try out!

Lets get to the review..

Coconut Cream Pie ( Dates, Unsweetened Coconut, Almonds, Cashews and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.)

I decided to cut one of the bars in half to show you how the bars look. I know I know they dont look very appealing but dont let the appearance fool you, they are so delicious once you taste them you wont be able to resist! Dont blame Larabar for that one ;) 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip
I absolutely love anything peanut butter and chocolate chip, so I instantly knew I would love this one. 

It has 4 Ingredients:
Dates, Peanuts, Chocolate Chips, and Sea salt

It has a nice chewy, yet crunchy texture to it. The dates are what makes it so chewy and I love the crunch the peanuts. You can taste everything in this simple yet so yummy bar! It does taste like peanut butter chocolate chip and what can get any better than that right?!

Apple Pie
(In Canada known as 'Apple')

This is my second favourite! It reminded me of actual home baked apple pie...mmmm
This whole bar is under 200 calories and provides 1 FULL serving of fruit! Thats pretty awesome!

It has 6 Ingredients:
Dates, Almonds, Unsweetened Apple, Walnuts, Raisins and Cinnamon

This bar was so so yummy, I love apple pie and it was just that! Its not to sweet, and spiced with just enough cinnamon and enough chewiness that was perfectly combined to make this astounding apple pie flavour!

Coconut Cream Pie
(In Canada known as 'Coconut Cream')

I like me some coconut but I dont like it all the time. Luckily this bar was just to yummy to resist! 

It has 5 Ingredients:
Dates, Unsweetened Coconut, Almonds, Cashews and Extra Virgin Coconut Oil

This bar is so delightful. Its like taking a coconut cream pie on the go! Crazy right?
Well Im not the biggest fan of coconut I really enjoyed this bar as much as I would a good coconut cream pie! I love coconut cream pie and didn't think this bar could live up to the standards. But to my surprise this was delicious and me and my boyfriend wasn't a fan of coconut so I had this all to myself!

Cherry Pie
(In Canada known as 'Cherry')

I am a fan of the classic cherry pie and I never thought that this bar could ever taste like a cherry pie with only 3 ingredients! I was wrong.

It has 3 Ingredients:
Dates, Almonds and Unsweetened Cherries

This bar contains 1 Full serving of fruit, 4grams of Fiber and 5 grams of Protein!
I love the taste of cherry pie, how its all gooey in the middle. This bar actually replicates all the qualities of a cherry pie with only three ingredients! Its got a tarte and tasty, it is chewy like the gooeyness of the filling and it sure is delicious!

If you are interested in purchasing some tasty Larabars for yourself or someone else, you can usually find them at your local grocery store, or pharmacy, convenience store and even gyms now. Some places I have found Larbars at is Shoppers Drug Mart here in Canada and Metro here in Canada and they are around $1.79 ( Dont quote me on that).

They also offer a wide variety of flavours, you just have to check the nutrition facts on each bar because of the ingredients used the amount of calories, fiber and protein...etc varies a lot. Here are some of the flavours they have to offer :

Apple Pie - Banana Bread - Blueberry Muffin - Cappuccino - Carrot Cake - Cashew Cookie - Cherry Pie - Chocolate Chip Brownie - Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte - Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough - Chocolate Coconut Chew - Coconut Cream Pie - Key Lime Pie - Lemon Bar - Peanut Butter & Jelly - Pecan Pie and Tropical Fruit Tart.

Overal Thoughts

My and my boyfriend really enjoyed having these Nutritional Larabars! We liked them so much we already went out and bought some more! They are a very good value for a nutrition bar that uses all natural ingredients!

Have you ever had a Larabar, or would you ever consider purchasing them?

If so what flavours would you like or have tried?
