Healthy Snacks from LARABAR

I was recently sent a couple of new LARABARS to try out. I've been a fan of their Original Bars for several years now. My favorite one? That would have to be the Mint Chip Brownie Bar. If I'm craving something sweet this is what I would go for because it has the most incredible taste (you'll think you're actually eating a brownie!) Believe it or not, it's made with only 6 ingredients including: Dates, Almonds, Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips, Cashews, Cocoa Powder and Peppermint Oil. I recognize that chocolate chips are part of this list but I would rather eat something sweet with ingredients I am familiar with than pick up a Snickers Bar with unhealthy ingredients not to mention way more fat calories and grams of sugar.

Tip: Did you know that Cocoa Powder contains fiber which is essential in maintaining a healthy diet?

When I was offered to try the Target Exclusive Strawberry Chocolate Chip Bar I jumped at the chance to do so! Similarly, this bar is made with just 7 ingredients: Dates, Almonds, Semisweet Chocolate Chips, Strawberries, Apples, Cocoa Powder and Sea Salt. It was delicious and reminded of something you might purchase from See's Candies. I would also recommend this flavor and plan on picking up a box today!

What I love about the LARABAR brand is that I know I'm getting quality food. They use NON-GMO ingredients, and have several options for those who need Gluten Free, Dairy Free, and Soy-Free foods. Vegan? They've got you covered as well! Each bar is different depending on the ingredients used. All of these food-particular aspects I mentioned are printed on the outside of the box plain as day which I appreciate. I don't know about you but I want to know what I'm eating!

I also had the opportunity to try one of their Nut & Seed Bars which I have never ventured out and bought. I had the Peanut Chocolate flavor which is made with 9 ingredients including: Peanuts, Honey, Sprouted Chi Seeds, Cacao Nibs, Maple Sugar, Almonds, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Powder and Sea Salt. It was tasty but not my favorite thing ever. If you're not into the consistency of the Original Bars though (they're more on the chewy side) then this might be the bar for you!

Overall I think the Original Bars are my favorite because I like the texture and variety of flavor options. I also love being able to have something a little sweet without worrying about the crazy amount of questionable ingredients in a candy bar or what have you.

Have you tried anything from the LARABAR brand before? If so, which bars are your favorites?
