Product Spotlight on: LÄRABAR!

People's Grocery Cooperative has been selling LARABARs for years, but recently we just added a whole new selection of flavors!

If you've never had a LARABAR, we highly recommend it. These vegan, paleo energy bars are naturally packed with protein, antioxidants, and they taste like dessert! With flavors that sound like items at a bakery, rather than energy bars, you would think they would be packed with sugar, but in fact LARABARS are sweetened with dates and other fruit. (Only a few contain actual sugar, which are an ingredient in the chocolate chips that are in some flavors.

LARABAR was founded in 2000 by Lara, who came up with the idea to make these bars on a hike. Lara believed that health food should come in fun flavors, just like the cookies and treats she saw everywhere in grocery stores. After many successful test batches, the bars first hit store shelves in 2001 and we a big hit! Now, 13 years after it's inital launch, LARABAR has tons more flavors and 4 more lines of bars including ÜBER their whole fruit & nut bar, ALT the alternative protein bar, REnola the grain-free granola bar, and Jocolat chocolate food bar. 

Not only are LARABARs delicious, but they're also great for people with a lot of dietary restrictions. LARABAR has a commitment to making their bars gluten free, kosher and vegan. For more information, see their website. 

We love that LARABAR is Non-GMO verified, Kosher, they use Fair Trade Certified Coffee and chocolate and there are never preservatives or fillers. 

Currently we are carrying: Bluberry Muffin, Peanut Butter Cookie, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Banana Bread, Cherry Pie, Key Lime Pie, Chocolate Chip Brownie, Chocolate Chip Chew, Coconut Cream Pie and the Jocalat chocolate coffee bar.
