We'll miss you, Pistachio!

Ever since seeing them on The Biggest Loser, I've been in love with Larabars.  I love the fact that they're all-natural.  That they're gluten free.  That usually, they only have like 5-6 ingredients.  They are No Sugar Added, Raw, Non-GMO, Vegan, and Kosher.

Take the Pistachio. 


It has three - 3 - ingredients: Dates, Pistachios, and Cashews.  How freaking cool is that??  I ususally have one before my runs or after a big workout, and they really help.  I try to ration them, since I don't have a ton, but it's hard - they're just so good.  No, they're not low-Calorie; they're not supposed to be.  They're supposed to be a "FOOD BAR".  Most have about 200 Calories.  Not too bad; and they're delicious.  I've liked every Larabar I've had.  Not so hot on the Jocalat bars, but that's okay.  My all-time favorites are Ginger Snap and Coconut Cream Pie.

But now, the Pistachio flavor is retiring.  It's going away.  A little while ago, Larabar on twitter did a sweepstakes for Pistachio's Retirement.  And I won!  I never win anything.  But thanks to Stacy at Larabar, I got a prize pack.  


It's funny.  Even though I work in the Promotional Products Industry, I am so excited to get all the "SWAG"!  I guess that's what brand loyality can do for a product, huh?  I'll be wearing the T-Shirt tomorrow.  In fact, as soon as I got the box, I had to put on all the gear!

   
(like the new jeans?)

Thanks, Larabar and Stacy!  You have a customer for life.  Oh, and if you ever need me to "review" your new flavors, I'm in (you have my address now)!

What a great prize package Beej! I haven't had many of the Lara Bars, but I have liked them all. They are something I need to eat rarely, but they are a great treat.

Dude, So lucky!!!!

I love larabar though I've only had the ones that come in the ginormous costco box: apple pie, cherry and peanut butter.
