I like all of the Larabars that I have tried. They taste good and are able to satisfy my appetite. I do not understand why the bars can be purchased cheaper at Whole Paycheck (aka Whole Foods) for $1.35 and Walmart for $1.25 and they are more expensive per unit when purchased in a box of 16 at Amazon. Depending on which Larabar you choose, the Amazon per unit price ranges from 1.35 for the Cherry to 1.83 for the chocolate per unit. Amazon needs to adjust its price in order to be competitive in the market.

I've reviewed a lot of these products, and most have some common flaws: Bad, "unnatural," or chemical-like taste (especially in the metallic after-taste), woefully stale, cardboard-like texture, high fat content, and relatively high price.

Fortunately, Lara-Bars are perhaps the best tasting line of "nutritional bars" available. The apple pie version is nicely chewy, with a taste of rolled oats, cinnamon, raisin, and, of course, apple, though it's not as intense or satisfying a fruit flavor as their Cherry Pie bar. The apple hits you especially in the aftertaste, which is very satisfying. Perhaps a bit on the dry side, but neither boring or cloying, and without that awful artificial taste mentioned above.

The ingredient list is all one needs to read to discover the "secret" of Lara's natural taste:
Dates, almonds, unsweetened apples, walnuts, raisins, cinnamon. That's it! This is absolutely unheard of in type of food! Go to any comparable product (e.g., Cliff, Balance, Promax, South Beach, etc.) and you will find a veritable mine of vitamin and mineral additives. For that reason alone (OK, and the concomitant wonderfully natural taste), these stand leagues above the competition.

Does this reliance on natural foods cost you in nutrition? I don't know--that's one for doctors and dietitians. However, I can list the nutritional values here:

In one bar, you ingest the following:

One serving (45 grams) provides 180 Calories--90 of them from fat; 10 g, Total Fat, of which only 1 gram is saturated fat, 4 grams are monounsaturated, and 4.5 grams are polyunsaturated (no trans fat, although, interesting enough, those grams add only to 9.5); NO Cholesterol; 5mg of Sodium: 280mg, Potassium; 23 grams, Total Carbohydrate.

Maybe not, but these bars are my JAM, yo! Cashew cookie is my fave flave. I like the ingredients list: "Cashews, dates." No foolin'! These bars is for real! I eat one while I drink my coffee every dang morning. I eat one after I run (good carb:protein ratio, and lot's o'potassium). Potassi... yum! Some flavors aren't my favorite, so don't be judgin' if you've only tried one flavor. Like apple. Not that good. I tend to like the nutty ones (I think that applies to women, too). Pecan Pie, Peanut Butter Cookie, Pistacio. Pistaci, yo! And the Chocolate Coconut is good too- but don't expect it to taste like a chocolate bar from 7eleven because these bars is sweetened only by dates- they gots no added shoogs! RE-SPEC!! I buy in bulk.

I've grown to really like these bars, but the flavor names are a bit misleading. I've had the apple pie, which is appropriately named, the jocalat(chocolate) I think will be disappointing to most in the beginning if you're really expecting true chocolate taste, but the actual flavor does grow on you, and the pecan pie is really delicious but it doesn't taste anything like pecan pie. It's more like a very tasty, nutty, gooey date bar. So if you don't get your hopes up with the flavors, I think you'll like them very much, AND they are truly wholesome and are perfect for the Paleo Diet.

These things are amazing. Healthy, instant, tasty, and pretty inexpensive at ~$1.50 per bar. They are free of dairy, gluten, meat, soy, etc and are raw, so almosy anyone can eat them.

Now onto the flavor analysis. The first flavor I tried was Key Lime Pie. It was really, really good. Next I tried Cherry Pie. It wasn't as good, but with its strong flavor I found it to be the perfect companion to a few pieces of dark chocolate. When I had women over (I'm a young single bachelor) I'd share with them some dark chocolate and a cherry pie larabar and they would almost get as much enjoyment from that as they did from me. I just opened my new box of Lemon and it is easily my favorite flavor so far. Incredible, I don't want to risk trying another flavor because lemon is so good. My roommate preferred the lime but says the lemon is his second best.

So to recap: these are good, buy them.

I have been on a long quest for "nutrition bars" (or whatever you want to call them) that don't have refined sugar, aren't too sweet (however they're sweetened), don't have soy, and generally don't have extra crud in them. These are perfect!

I like the flavor, and I like that the ingredients list is so short: "dates, almonds, and cherries". (200 calories, 5g protein, 5g fiber. See larabar dot com for more.)

They are a little bit gooier/processed than I was expecting... I had to check after a taste that there wasn't soy in there gluing everything together. But when I think about fruit leather that makes sense. In some ways, it's like a thick fruit leather with some larger bits of fruit and nuts.

But I'm really glad to find them and will be trying more flavors. This is just the sort of bar I was hoping for.

Update: My next favorite flavor so far is Chocolate Coconut Chew, which should not be mistaken for a candy bar-type snack, as I feared it might. It's not that sweet and not that chocolately. It's more substantial. Ingredients: "Dates, almonds, walnuts, unsweetened cocoa powder, unsweetened coconut". 240 calories, 5g protein, 5g fiber... and I'm sorry I don't have the energy right now to type the rest. (Ah! But you can get it online if you put a dot com after larabar!)

I also like Ginger Snap enough to have bought a box. They are, yes, a little cookie-ish (though with the same gooey consistency as the rest). I do love ginger, but I don't find myself reaching for this flavor and probably won't reorder. Ingredients: "Dates, almonds, pecans, ginger, cinnamon, cloves". 240 calories, 5g protein, 6g fiber.
