This Workout Is Only 8 Minutes But It's Intense: Total-Body Tabata
I Gave Up Sugar For an Entire Month, and Here's What Happened

My LARABARS Arrived!!!

Recently LARABAR offered FitSugar readers free samples of their tasty energy bars? (Sorry - if you haven't requested them yet, the deadline has passed, but you can still pick some up at your health food store.) Well, mine just arrived - wasn't that fast?! I requested samples of their new chocolate flavored bars that they call JOCOLAT. They were so tasty I had to write about them. Chocolate has that effect on me.

Out of the Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Orange and Chocolate Coffee, the plain old Chocolate LARABAR was my favorite. I swear if I closed my eyes, it tasted like I was eating a decadent walnut fudge brownie. When I looked at the ingredients, all I saw were organic dates, organic almonds, organic walnuts, organic cocoa powder, organic cocoa mass, and organic cashews. That's it. Nothing but healthy stuff.

I will definitely be buying these - I'll keep a stash in my purse and gym bag, so I'll have a healthy snack that'll fill me up, give me energy, and satisfy my sweet tooth.

"it tasted like I was eating a decadent walnut fudge brownie" - exactly! That's why I love the chocolate Larabar. Orange Choc was good too, but the mint one tasted too "toothpasty" to me - the mint was overpowering.

I finally got mine too! Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Key Lime Pie, and Pecan Pie. I didn't see anyone mention the Pecan Pie, so I thought I would mention that I really liked it. Definitely can taste the Pecans, but there are almonds in there too! This one and Cashew Cookie have the least amount of sugar, 14 for cashew, 16 for pecan.

I got my fruit Larabars and they are AWESOME! I love that their bars have 6 ingredients or less and are all natural. I'm definitely considering buying them in the future (their generous sample aided in that).

I got my Larabars! they sent me 4!! And some stickers! Really generous for samples! But I already tried them already so I knew I would like them, but I found a new favorite, cashew cookie :) but i don't like the Jocalat, the one I has seemed dry and didn't taste like chocolate at all (i'm picky though and not at all leanient on health food, it still has to taste good!) my reccomendations: pecan pie, cashew cookie, and the best: banana cookie (it tastes to me JUST LIKE banana bread!)

So, I tried all of them, they are by far my favorite bars, but the Key Lime was a bit much for me, did not like it. The cashew cookie and apple pie are to die for though!!!

My fav bars are not on that list but you've got to check them out. They are made by Gnu (pronounced new) foods and the bar is called flavor and fiber. The bars only have 130 calories, 3 grams of fat, 12 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein. The chocolate bars have 140 calories. This way I know I get my 25 grams of fiber a day. Available online There is a store locator for peeps who don't want to order online.

lisak--i am really picky with energy/protein bars and I thought these were fantastic. My husband (AKA the world's pickiest eater) tried the apple pie and actually liked it. I just have to drive kind of far to get them now!

So they really taste good? I am pretty finicky when it comes to energy/protein bars. I have not found any I will actually eat. Maybe I will try these since everyone has liked them.
