Vacation Series - LaraBars

"At LÄRABAR, we believe that the foundation of a sound mind, body and spirit is derived from what you eat. And what you eat is healthiest and most satisfying when it's in a whole, natural state."

What is unique about LÄRABAR?
LÄRABAR is a delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Made from 100% whole food, each flavor contains no more than nine ingredients. Pure and simple, just as nature intended.

Will a LÄRABAR freeze or melt?
If placed in the freezer or outside in cold temperatures, LÄRABAR will become firmer, but will not freeze. Similarly, LÄRABAR (with the exception of the flavors containing chocolate chips) will not melt when heated.

What are the quality standards for LÄRABAR ingredients?

Gluten Free
Dairy Free*
Soy Free*
All Natural
No added sugars or sweeteners*
No added sulfites
No preservatives, fillers, or colorings
*Does not include the Chocolate Chip varieties. Chocolate chip flavors 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 which 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 chips made at the facility; thus we cannot claim these products as Dairy Free, Soy Free or Vegan.

My Thoughts:
At first glance I thought these were protein/energy bars that were sure to taste like the gritty bars I've tried in the past, but I was so wrong. Made up of mostly fruits and nuts without added sugar, these taste delicious! What makes these fantastic for traveling is that they are individually packaged, and with the exception of the chocolate chip varieties, they don't melt in the heat or freeze in cold temperatures, so they're always ready to eat. They also aren't apt to crumble while being eaten, which is yet another advantage for taking these with you on-the-go. My husband and I took these with us on our trip to Europe (photos coming shortly) and ate them when we didn't have time to for a sit-down meal, or on our overnight train when we didn't want to occur the added expense of food on our trip.We were glad to have a healthy snack option that kept us going. I would suggest these to anyone looking for healthy snack options, on the go options, or people with allergy concerns!

  1. We love Larabars in our house. It is hard to find energy/protein bars that are gluten-free. Larabar is one of the few and one of the best.
