Recently LARABAR offered FitSugar readers free samples of their tasty energy bars? (Sorry - if you haven't requested them yet, the deadline has passed, but you can still pick some up at your health food store.) Well, mine just arrived - wasn't that fast?! I requested samples of their new chocolate flavored bars that they call JOCOLAT. They were so tasty I had to write about them. Chocolate has that effect on me.
Out of the Chocolate, Chocolate Mint, Chocolate Orange and Chocolate Coffee, the plain old Chocolate LARABAR was my favorite. I swear if I closed my eyes, it tasted like I was eating a decadent walnut fudge brownie. When I looked at the ingredients, all I saw were organic dates, organic almonds, organic walnuts, organic cocoa powder, organic cocoa mass, and organic cashews. That's it. Nothing but healthy stuff.
I will definitely be buying these - I'll keep a stash in my purse and gym bag, so I'll have a healthy snack that'll fill me up, give me energy, and satisfy my sweet tooth.

Fit's Tips: I know it may seem like the fat content in this bar is high, but the fat comes from nuts, which are healthy fats your body needs. If you want to see how a LARABAR compares to other energy bars, than check out this post.
