Larabar Review and Giveaway! (ENDED!!! )

Have you ever left home to run errands and realized about half way through your stops that you are suddenly really hungry?  It would take way too much time to go into the grocery store to pick up a healthy snack so you decide to make a quick stop for something that’s, well, way less healthy.  The drive-thru window at a local fast food joint, perhaps?  Personally, I’d rather eat nothing than go to one of those places for what they call food, but more importantly, I try to always leave home prepared.  Even with kids, actually, especially with kids, we have to be prepared with some tasty treats that are ideally healthy. Some of my favorites are pieces of fruit or a mix of cashew, raisins, and dark chocolate chips. Also, whenever I know we will be out for a while, I always fill a reusable water bottle for each person since we don’t buy plastic ones.  When I need to grab-n-go, though, I love to have a LARABAR in my purse.  They truly pack so much goodness into such a little bar without including any of the “bad” stuff! From the LARABAR website, this sums up the nutrition of the bars in a nutshell:

LÄRABAR is a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices – energy in its purest form. Made from 100% whole food, each flavor contains no more than eight ingredients. Pure and simple, just as nature intended.



Sweet with no added sweeteners. Sustaining with no added fillers, supplements or flavorings. LÄRABAR is what your body needs – real, whole food loaded with nature’s own minerals and vitamins.


All of the vitamins, minerals, fiber, protein, good carbohydrates and healthy fats are derived exclusively from the whole food used to make LÄRABAR.

For LÄRABAR, we source the best possible ingredients. Every time. Every bar. Enjoy.

I love the confidence I feel when I pick up a Larabar and know they had my health in mind when they created these bars.  Also, for those with certain dietary concerns the package clearly states what’s NOT in the bars, such as gluten-free or vegan.  At a glance you can look and find this as opposed to searching, or better yet, putting it back on the shelf because you aren’t sure if it’s safe for your needs or not.
For me, this offers and added piece of mind since I am a vegetarian.  When the package clearly states vegan, know that it’s fine for me to eat as a vegetarian since vegans are much more strict with their diet than vegetarians.
Much like I carry my wallet in my purse, I carry a Larabar for those times I’m in need of something to curb my hunger.

Okay, are you ready for the super fun part?  Larabar wants one of you fabulous readers to WIN one of their 24 pack sampler boxes of Larabars!! That’s 24 bars in a variety of flavors! Oh, yes, I know it’s exciting, you don’t have to tell me!  But, that’s not all…..they are also going to include one of their awesome t-shirts as well.

  51. cecedon says

    I've been following you but now I'm following them on twitter too @cecedon. I liked them on facebook and I checked out their page. Great flavors. I'm kind of excited about this because I'm gluten free and I rarely find much to carry in my purse that I like. The flavors look awesome. I can't have bananas or kiwi at home because my husband is deathly allergic so both of those bars look good (good way to have the fruit without it contaminating the house). But I think ginger snap would be one of my faves. Thanks for having this great giveaway!
