Okay, so I may not be blowing up like a blueberry – buuuut I did receive a lovely blueberry treat in the mail from Miss Leashie Loo!
What is happening, you ask?? Blueberry. Muffin. Lara.
I’ve been waiting to try this sucker, and this morning was the perfect opportunity. I was feeling lazy, I was craving carbs in a major way (umm, we’re not gonna talk about the multiple sandwich and/or bagel things consumed last night in the glow from my television…), and I was running late.
I don’t think I’d be finding a more perfect time for a bar.
I paired it with a nice hot cup of coffee….a mixture of the last bit of grounds of a free sample I received from Starbucks - their Natural Fusions Vanilla (which I really enjoyed and used up quickly!) and Archer Farms Cinnamon Vanilla Nut Coffee…and I figured they both were vanilla-y, and it was delish.
Okay – so let’s get down to business and talk about this blueberry bar! I assume some of you out there have tried it? I enjoyed it! ..I do have to say I haven’t met a Lara I didn’t like, but the fruit flavors have always come second to anything with peanut butter, chocolate or coconut (and any combination of the three). However, this is up there, and definitely one of my favorite fruit bars – to date (no pun intended, consider Laras are full of them)!
This bar also had a softer texture – which I really like. I’m not sure if that was a result of perhaps some squishing while in transit or if other people felt this way about the texture, too! It definitely lent itself to a more doughy consistency, which I found great.
This bar will definitely become a regular my ‘cookie jar’ – it’s good, filling aaaand has fewer calories than all of my faves out there.
Plus, I love that it’s purple. I’m a simple girl, really..haha
Thanks again to Alicia for sending it my way!
