The good people at LARABAR were kind enough to send me a box of bars with all of their new “uber” flavors! I would like to take this opportunity to profile my favorite uber bar and announce a CONTEST giveaway for the month of February!
First of all, the reason I choose LARABAR as my dedicated in-between-meal snack is because their bars contain real food. All of their bars contain no more than 9 simple, recognizable, easy-to-pronounce ingredients. The bars hover around 200 calories each and they are all gluten-free, non-GMO and kosher. In fact, the majority of their bars are also dairy-free, soy-free and vegan. Talk about versatility!
My favorite LARABAR uber flavor of the bunch is the “ROASTED NUT ROLL”, which contains: Roasted Almonds, Cashews, Brown Rice Syrup, Roasted Peanuts, Dates, Pecans, Roasted Macadamia Nuts, Honey & Sea Salt. The main difference between the regular LARABAR and the uber bar, in my opinion, is that the uber bars are nuttier and more crunchy.
So on the topic of eating real food…I would like to announce the contest giveaway! Leave a comment below related to a) the importance of eating food with real ingredients or b) the most egregious artificial ingredient that you purposely choose to avoid, and your name will be placed in a drawing for a FREE box of bars, shipped directly to you by LARABAR! The contest will end on February 28, 2013. Hurry up and post your reply now. Good luck!
