A Review: Jocalate Bars (from Larabars)


I was purusing the health food isle at my local HEB (I live in San Antonio) and I came across the very same bar I had seen on Vegan Essentials just that afternoon! The two flavors I tried where Chocolate and Chocolate Coffee. Here is the info for them (I got it from Vegan Essentials’ site)

Ingredients: – Organic dates, organic almonds, organic walnuts, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic cashewsChocolate Coffee flavor – Organic dates, organic hazelnuts, organic walnuts, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic coffee

Chocolate Mint flavor – Organic dates, organic almonds, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic peppermint flavor, organic vanilla flavor

Orange Mint flavor – Organic dates, organic almonds, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic orange flavor

Nutritional information:
Serving size – 1 bar (48g)
Servings per package – 1
Calories per serving – 190 (180 for Mint flavor)
Total fat – 9g / 1g saturated for Chocolate and Orange flavors, 8g / 1g saturated for Mint flavor, 11g / 1g saturated for Coffee flavor

Total carbohydrate – 25g (5g fiber, 19g sugars), 26g (6g fiber, 19g sugars) for Mint only

ORGANIC  *  NO ADDED SUGAR  *  90% RAW  *  NON- GMO  *  GLUTEN FREE DAIRY FREE  *  SOY FREE  *  VEGAN  *  KOSHER

Well, as some of the other reviews on Vegan Essentials said, this isn’t exactly a chocolate bar in the traditional sense. It’s more of a chocolate flavored food bar. Also, while it says “No added sugar” (which is usually a good thing) that leaved the bar slightly bitter and definitely not as sweet as you’d expect from a chocolate bar. However I did like them, especially the Coffee flavored, but just know that they aren’t exactly what you’d expect.

 

As far as I know, most or all of Larabars are vegetarian if not vegan. I have yet to try the others, but I have heard they are good …

  1. The darker the chocolate the better, as it contains more cocoa but less milk and sugar. Normally, sugar free chocolate candies are prepared for diabetics. Therefore, the milk and sugar content in this type of chocolates are very low and the cocoa content is high.
