Larabar Introduces New Flavor

I'm a huge fan of Larabar's products -- check out my previous post on Larabar here.  All of them are gluten free and practically soy free, dairy free and vegan -- because the chocolate chips used in some of the company's bars share a product line with milk chocolate chips they cannot label bars using chocolate chips soy and dairy free or vegan.  The full explanation is here on the site.

Regardless, for us gluten free folk, Larabar is a great go-to bar that travels well because it doesn't melt.  I also appreciate that I can pronounce the ingredients in the bars.  In the company's newest flavor, Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte, there are just 6 simple ingredients: dates, Fair Trade Certified chocolate chips, almonds, unsweetened cherries, cashews, and sea salt.  Larabar sent me a package containing four bars and promotional material recently and I could barely wait to take the bars for a taste test.

I really enjoyed the Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte bar.  It's a great mix between some of the company's fruity bars, such as the Cherry Pie, and my preferred bars, the chocolate ones.  The cherry flavor isn't quite as intense as the company's Cherry Pie flavor, probably owing to the chocolate chips.  They definitely help make the cherry flavor a bit more subtle while still keeping it intact.

  I'll definitely add this bar to my list of favorites.  I don't have additional details as to when they will be on store shelves, but keep your eyes peeled!  Hopefully we will be seeing more bars in the Chocolate Chip variety from Larabar; I'm hooked!

Do you love it or do you love it?
