It looks like it should be delicious. I’m always a sucker for chocolate in non-shiny packaging.
It is, however, healthy. Healthy chocolate is always hit or miss with me. Mostly miss.
Gotta love these ingredients though: Dates, Almonds, Walnuts, Cocoa Powder, Unsweetened Chocloate, and Cashews-all organic.
The first bite was kind of meh. I think that has more to do with the fact that the bar looks like a decadently fudgey brownie . . . and it really isn’t. On second bite, the complexity of the flavor really starts to come through. It’s dark chocolate with hints of crunchy, nutty, sweetness. It’s really kind of a cool combination.
I think if I had already started the refined sugar purge that Wes is on, I would be madly in love. Since I still have a taste for the supersweet stuff, I am maintaining that Larabar Jocolat and I are just friends. (It will be interesting to see how my tastes change as I wean myself off of sugar.)
