PGM Endorsement: Lara Bars

My sis is married to a health nut, and she’s gotten pretty into it to.  So she is always texting me things:  Have you tried this recipe?  Have you tried this product? etc.  We love bouncing ideas off each other.  A while back she said something like, “Have you ever had a lara bar?  They are legit.”  I remember my health nut boss eating one a while back in NY, but I had never tried one.  The other day I was at Costco and the kids were sick of running errands, and hungry.  Not a good combination.  The Wild One seriously had his younger brother in a headlock, and he was (of course) crying.  If I didn’t do something quick I was going to turn into everyone’s favorite shopper with the melting-down kids.  I spotted a box of Lara Bars, glanced over the ingredients and then tore into the box.  I broke a bar in half and gave it to the kiddos.  Instant gratification.  They were quiet and they liked it!  I happened to give them a chocolate peanut butter bar, which was pretty tasty.  I’ve also tried apple pie (good) {ingredients: dates, almonds, apples, walnuts} and cherry pie (barf, but Tornado loved it.  More for him)  {ingredients: cherries, dates, almonds}.  Sidenote in case anyone is wondering…yes, I did buy the box.  I didn’t just tear into it and steal a bar.  Phew.  Glad I got that off my chest.

Check out the website here.  They have 20 different flavors to choose from.  Among my favorite so far  is

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip

{Ingredients: Dates, Chocolate Chips, Peanuts, Sea Salt}

THAT’S IT!  Love it.  These bars a bit pricey, but to me it is worth it for a very healthy snack made of whole foods that the kiddos seem to love.  Thanks for the suggestion, sis!
