Shout Out for Tasty Goodness in Bar Form

We've been buying Lara Bars from CostCo for the last year or so and I thought it would be apropos to balance out the recent weight-centric posts with something positive.

These bars are awesome, good for you and made of basic (read that, easy to pronounce) ingredients. My favorite is the Apple Pie bar, its got six ingredients: dates, almonds, unsweetened apples, walnuts, raisins and cinnamon. That's it. For that you get 180 calories, 90 from fat (from the nuts which is good fat), 5 mg sodium, 23 g carbs with 4 g fiber and 17 g sugars and 4 grams of protein. There's even a gram of Omega-3 fatty acids and 4 grams of Omega-6 fatty acids. No gluten, no dairy and no soy.

They are satisfying, very tasty and I can't recommend them enough.

I don't know why the company site is secure https since its just a flash site but that's alright (though I wish they'd offer an html option as the site feels, um, pokey). I do want to try the Key Lime, Cinnamon Rool and Banana Cookie but CostCo only has the three variety pack with Apple Pie, Cherry Pie and Lemon. Maybe Trader Joe's will carry them so I can try the whole line.

They've also got bars called Jocolat but we haven't tried those yet. I'd imagine they're pretty good too.
