The next Larabar I have is the Lemon Bar. This one is new to me. I was very hesitant on purchasing the Lemon Bar because I was afraid that it might turn out to be another Key Lime Pie. I thought I would give it a chance anyways. You’ll never know if you don’t try. Here’s more information about the Lemon Bar before I begin my review on it. 😊

The Lemon Bar flavor comes in an adorable yellow box just like its wrapper. So cute and pretty! When I removed the Lemon Bar out of its wrapper, I noticed that the bar was rather thin compared to the previous Larabars I have tried. The Lemon Bar had a nice, soft texture to it, which made it very easy to bite into and chew. There were a few whole nuts here and there. In one of the photos, you can see an almond peeking out of the bar. 😁 As for the taste, the Lemon Bar tastes like lemons (what it’s supposed to taste like). The ingredient list does state that it contains Lemon Juice Concentrate, Dried Lemon Juice Concentrate, and Lemon Oil. It tastes exactly like that. Even though it is sweeter than what I usually like, it wasn’t bad. I like lemons, so the Lemon Bar gets a pass from me. Also, there are cashews in this bar. It’s the second ingredient on the list. But, the lemon flavor overpowers it. Yay! If you haven’t noticed yet, I’m not too big on cashews. Overall, I liked the Lemon Bar. It’s not as good as the Cinnamon Roll and Coconut Chocolate Chip, but I wouldn’t mind purchasing it again if I want something sweet and satisfying without feeling guilty. It makes a nice lemon-flavored snack that’s natural. And yes, it turned out way better than the Key Lime Pie!

Sweet Chili Pistachios! Mmmm!

Sweet Chili Pistachios! Mmmm!

I’ve been incorporating almonds, pecans, and pumpkin seeds in my diet for a while. I think it’s time to spice things up a little bit by adding another nut into my diet. I chose pistachios. I only eat pistachios once in a blue moon. It’s an expensive nut for everyday consumption. 😔 It’s soooo good though! One of my favorites. ❤ Only if they were more affordable. This time, I didn’t choose the Roasted. Those are good, by the way. Unsalted or Salted, they are really good. The one I have is Sweet Chili. I’ve never had this flavor before until now. It’s new to me. If you have a gluten allergy, you’re in luck! Wonderful Pistachios Sweet Chili is Gluten-Free. They are also Non-GMO. 🙂

Nutrition Facts & Ingredients: With only 150 calories per serving, pistachios make a great, fulfilling snack! They are packed with essential nutrients, such as copper, manganese, vitamin B6, thiamin, and so much more! Like other nuts, they are high in healthy fats that are good for the heart. Of course, there’s 6 grams of protein that comes along with all of that good stuff! What’s not to love? Exactly. Everything. 👍👍

I’m so used to the plain, roasted pistachios, so I thought the Spicy Chili pistachios were quite different. The flavor is exactly what it is. It’s sweet. Tangy, I would say. There’s a touch of chili to it. It’s not spicy though. It’s more sweet than it is spicy. I like it. They’re good. Still, I think I like the plain, roasted pistachios a lot more. Yeah, I’m pretty basic when it comes to pistachios, haha. These were nice to try. I would only purchase them again if I get bored with the plain, roasted ones.
