LARABAR TROPICAL FRUIT TART & LARABAR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH REVIEWS

LARABAR TROPICAL FRUIT TART



RATING: 1/5 (nasty!)

Ingredients: Dates, pineapple, unsweetened coconut, almonds, extra virgin coconut oil, cashews, orange juice concentrate, orange peel

Smell: Coconutty with orangey undertones

Taste: Tangy, coconutty, citrus from the orange and slightly bitter

Texture: A bit toooo chewy - prob from the orange peel and pineapple, a few nuts here and there

Verdict: I didn't like this much at all! Too much orange, not enough coconut or other nuts, too chewy - actually quite horrible!

LARABAR CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE DOUGH - RATING 3/5

Ingredients: Cashews, dates, chocolate chips* (unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla), salt

Smell: Smells chocolatey! actually milk chocolatey initially, then with a deeper sniff, the dark chocolate comes through

Appearance: Golden-mid brown bar, speckled with nuts and.. CHOCOLATE CHIPS! :o)

Taste: ..pleasant...a little odd! maybe it's the dates and chocolate combo? mmm.. well it is nice, it's growing on me, although I may not actualy buy it again (the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip is way nicer!)

Texture: Gooey, moist, chocolate chips here and there but not 'nutsy' enough

Verdict: An ok bar - I wouldn't buy it againbecause there are others that are faaar far nicer.. and there are 15 more bars in the box :o( oops!

  1. With an ingredient list of cashews, dates and chocolate chips, I feel a bit betrayed by the second bar - how is it possible to mess up that delightful combination? Now, I'm gonna go find me some cashews to munch on :)
