I've tried lots of Larabar flavors and like them all.  They have new flavors just out recently.  When I read the ingredients I was disappointed to see sugar listed.  Beware the new Larabar flavors..

Larabar has several new flavors that contain chocolate chips as one of the ingredients.  The sugar is an ingredient in the chocolate chips.  According to their website, the chocolate chips contain only 4 ingredients: unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter and vanilla.

When you start eating bars for treats, rather than for good nutrition in between meals, that is typically when you run into trouble.  Eating processed free also means that when choosing foods for between meal nourishment, we make the best selections with the best nutrition.  The original Larabars are my favorites, because they were designed with processed-free nourishment in mind.  They contain only dates, nuts and fruit.

I get somewhat disappointed when good companies like Larabar turn a good product into a glorified candy bar.  I personally like the cashew cookie variety, but it's only an occasional in between meal snack--not a regular indulgence.

Thanks for posting, it was good for me to know.

I travel internationally quite a bit on business to the developing world.  I was looking for foods that I can take to eat on the plane (long, long flights) and on the road where there is nothing available.  I thought Larabar might be a good possibility, so I ordered a box of the Cherry Pie flavor.  Haven't received them yet.  It looks like the greens+ bars have changed and I am not sure if they are still OK to eat.  Due to the limits on liquids, anything I take on the plane needs to be dry.  If anyone out there has any tips that have worked for them, I would love know what has worked for you!

Hard boiled eggs work great, peanut butter sandwiches, apples, trail mix or any nuts like almonds, walnuts, etc., Mary's Gone Crackers or other whole grain crackers, Plan-D oat bran muffins, brown rice cakes (with almond butter or peanut butter), Larabars, Garden of Life Living Food Bars.

Once you get to your destination, it's good to have some packets of Amazing Grass greens powder to mix in to yogurt, milk, or juice to make sure you get some greens!

Hope this helps!
