Larabar Uber Review: Bananas Foster
A Larabar Uber Review for Bananas Foster.
The other day I was shopping at Whole Foods. The cashier asked me if I would like to try a product sample of their new product, the new Larabar Uber. I’ve always liked Larabar because they are made with simple, whole ingredient and they are gluten-free. But they are also loaded with sugar which is not good for a girl who is trying to lose weight!
I searched around for awhile trying to find a good, gluten-free bar that I can keep in my purse with me for snacks and emergencies. I never found one. And when I tried the sample of the Larabar Uber, I was hooked. It was SO good. It literally tastes like banana nut. And it’s probably one of the best bars on the market right now in terms of the ingredient list.
Here’s all the great ingredients they include: Walnuts, almonds, brown rice syrup, dates, dried bananas, pecans, honey, sea salt, cinnamon. Contains walnut, almond, and pecan ingredients.
And they are gluten-free! I’m in love. And I think others were excited about these bars too because they were sold out of Whole Foods for MONTHS. Every time I went there, all the flavors but Bananas Foster were available. Then I tried buying them on Amazon
and they were also out of stock. Damn, popular. I am happy to let you know they are back in stock. If you don’t have a Whole Foods near you, you can buy them online here:
General Mills Larabar Uber Caddy, Bananas Foster, 21.3-Ounce
Try them and tell me in the comments what you think! Do you like them as much as I do?
I love these ~ thx for sharing! Are Larabars, GMO free? Prop 37 in California brought the situation to my attention and now I check EVERYTHING that I buy ~ but, I have to directly ask the manufacturer as it is not labeled. SALES will increase when verifiable claims of GMO FREE products are labeled.
Yes, Larabars are non-GMO and they list this on their website: http://www.larabar.com/faqs/view-all.
There is a lot of controversy around Larabars right now because the company is owned by General Mills and they contributed $520,000 against Prop 37. Some stores are pulling Larabars off their shelves in protest. I understand the controversy, but General Mills is a huge billion dollar corporation and Larabar can’t control what their parent company does.
I was fully in support of Prop 37 and was upset to see it not get passed. I don’t understand why anyone WOULDN’T want to know what they’re eating. Those who opposed it told me that if organic food is labeled, there is no need to label GMO products. I don’t buy it. People have the right to know what they are eating, but I think in this case those who oppose it must think ignorance is bliss.
I can’t find the banana foster ones anywhere! I have been getting the nut rolls, which are still pretty good, but I want to get banana foster again 🙂
Pam, I went through the same thing. Bananas Foster was sold out for months at my local Whole Foods. I ended up buying them off Amazon because I couldn’t find anywhere that had them. The link is in my post if you’re interested.
