A sad goodbye to my favorite LÄRABAR + Giveaway!

I know you probably have noticed but my blog does not really consist of sharing with everyone my daily eats like other bloggers do. I just do not have that much time in a day to journal, or at least the energy to do it. I lead a pretty healthy lifestyle ever since I decided to focus on changing it.

It is pretty amazing how those choices affect those you live with. I believe I prepared an old favorite recipe of my husband's to be nice and at his request that consisted of sour cream,yoghurt, white tortillas, and cheese and he had a horrific upset stomach and terrible indigestion. He realized he had been eating so well that those creamy and non-vegan foods were no longer really responding the same way as they used to.

I realize that once you start on a healthy path of eating right, it really makes it hard and the body feels awful when you try feeding it the wrong things again.

One of the snacks we like to keep in the house are LÄRABARs. It would be easier to make them but I usually keep them in hand for trips or to send some in my husband's lunches when he has an extra long day.



Krogers usually runs wonderful specials where they are a $1 each so I buy a whole bunch. I like the Cashew Cookie bar. I also like the Cherry pie bar.



I recently heard that the company is retiring a flavor. They have a whole line of bars called JOCALAT that use organic chocolate products. One of my super favorites was the JOCALAT Chocolate Cherry Bar.


I think that these were a delicious combination of ingredients but what can one do? Could I call the company and ask them to halt the retirement of said bar? Could I weep? Of course not! Life happens and maybe, MAYBE I would feel so inclined to make it at home.

I do have some news for you though..........

The folks at LÄRABAR are so generous that they offered to give FIVE people a chance to each win 1 box (16 bars) plus a t-shirt. Five people will each receive a 16-count box of these Chocolate Cherry bars and a LÄRABAR T-shirt.


Mandatory entry (leave a comment)

1. What is your favorite LÄRABAR? If you have never tried it, which one would you taste first?


Extra entries (leave a comment for each)

2. Tweet the following message: Enter for a chance to win 1 of 5 @larabar boxes (16-count) plus a T-shirt. #win #giveaway http://bit.ly/eZbdMX

3. Follow me on twitter @singerinkitchen and/or Facebook page.

4. Post on your blog or on facebook. Leave me a link to that post.

Giveaway is open to US folks and will run until March 24, 2011 midnight, EST. I will announce the winner on Friday, March 25th.

Cashew Cookie is my fav, the first one I tried was the Cherry Pie.

i've never had a larabar! i guess i'd try the one you're raving about :)

laceylovesfood said...

of course, my favorite Larabar is one of the unhealthier ones...I adore the chocolate chip cookie dough one; but I also think that the Apple Pie bar is pretty great..and now that I mention it; I haven't seen that one in ages.

laceylovesfood said...

I also tweeted (I'm @kuntrageous) which is private...I don't see a link to your twitter to follow you.

Thanks for the post and opportunity.

Domestic Dharma said...

my favorite is a 3 way tie between cashew cookie, lemon, and peanut butter and jelly ;) I really like them all though!

Marty said...

When I was a kid my mom used to buy me chocolate covered cherries. they're still my favorite flavor so this is disappointing on two counts. First, all those missed opportunities to have eaten those bars and second all those missed future opportunities to eat them once they're gone!



This would be my favorite flavor

Laur said...

jocolat coffee chocolate!

Gina said...

I've never tried a Larabar before! But any of their chocolate flavors sound so good & peanut butter cookie too :)

Jennifer Ellis said...

Cherry Pie mmmm and apple ... oh, I DO love jocolat too..Gosh, anything Larabar makes is awesome! Thought I di like making my own raw stuff too, who has the time? :D

Ames said...

I think Cashew Cookie is my favorite as well, but I also like the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor.

Erin said...

Peanut butter cookie or tropical fruit I love every one I've tried it hard to choose a favorite :)

Tami said...

Thanks! I don't why they want to say goodbye to a fav, I wonder what wonderful new flavor will replace chocolate cherry? Their all so good it's so not easy to pick a fav!

Tami said...

Oh no! Why goodbye to Chocalate Cherry? Jocoalt is one of my favs,they are all tasty.

All That's Left Are The Crumbs said...

I love their apple pie and cherry pie.

lesliemiller17 said...

I love the Apple Pie! The cinnamon is perfect and reminds me of the pies my grandmother used to make!

Tanya said...

I do love the Apple Pie flavor. But recently I tried the Cherry Pie and loved it....just the right amount of sourness :)

Jeannine Bakriges said...

Lemon Bar...well, I also love Cherry Pie but I thought that would be cheating 'cause you had a pic of it. All Larabars are fabulous because they have no soy anything...which limits the power bars that are available to me from other companies.

moonsword said...

oh goodgolly, this is so exciting! I've never had a Larabar but I've heard so many people just swoon over them, so I'd love to win. Cashew Cookie sounds so good, that would be my first choice. ...then Lemon Bar. ...then Chocolate Coconut Chew. oh, stop me now!
Thanks for the Laraluscious giveaway!

Cassondra said...

This is so cool that you are giving away!!! I LOVE larabars!!! I don't have twitter or I would follow you! But my favorite is the chocolate chip cookie dough!!! Soooo good :) I was skeptical it would taste like cookie dough but it seriously does!!!

rivka said...

I lo0o0o0o0ove the coconut cream flavor.

Lauren at Keep It Sweet said...

I love all the chocolate chip larabars!

Ashley said...

I've never tried one, so I would love to!

COOKIE DOUGH! DEFINITELY!

Tan Lee yin said...

Key Lime pie sounds awesome

Heidi said...

I've actually never tried Larabars, but I would love to try the chocolate cherry one. Yum!
