Larabars- New Flavors- Good :) & Bad News :(

The new flavors at Larabar are so good I could probably eat that whole plate of them shown. They have chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chip brownie, & carrot cake. I think the pb&j is already available in stores, but I also tastes really good.

The carrot cake is really good and fully of real ingredients with no added sugar.
Shannon won one of these in class this morning. You will have to post below to let us know how you liked it. *Hint..Hint...I would have your journals filled out and brought to class ;)
Do you want the good news or the bad news first?
The bad news- there is "sugar" listed on the ingredients for the chocolate chip cookie dough and brownie. It comes from the chocolate chips. I wish they would have used nibs or carobs or something else a little healthier. It is so sad because it is so nice to say any of the larabar are a good choice. Now I have to specify which ones are "healthier" than the others.
The good news- I would use these two bars as a dessert! They make an amazing dessert that really does taste like a good brownie and cookie dough. I would eat this for your 10% instead of as a snack. They will be available in JULY!
