It's crazy that I haven't blogged about Larabars yet.  I'm not sure when I first started including Larabars in my diet, but ever since that day they have become a staple.

Larabars are marketed as "The Original Fruit & Nut Bar."  While I can't validate whether such a claim is true, I can say that I truly appreciate the company's use of mimimal ingredients.  Whereas many other fruit and nut bars are filled with ingredients which I can't even pronounce, Larabars keeps it simple.  My favorite flavor, Peanut Butter Cookie, has these ingredients: peanuts, dates, salt.  That's it.  Nothing more, nothing less.  When was the last time you looked at an ingredient label and actually understood everything on the label?  Perhaps the best part is that every single bar is gluten free, even ones with potentially misleading titles such as Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.  In addition to being gluten free, they are also soy free.  Check out more on their gluten free information here.

Larabars also has a line of bars called Jocalat.  I'm a fan of the chocolate mint bar, although I've suggested it to other people and it's been overwhelmingly rejected by them.  I'm a sucker for mint chocolate items (check out my previous ode to the combination here) so I love them.  This line of bars also comes in chocolate, chocolate coffee, chocolate hazelnut, and chocolate cherry.

I also love Larabars because the founder of the company, Lara, is a USC alum.  Fight on!

Do you love it or do you love it?
