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!

I have a new protein powder supplement! After I finished Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Unsweetened, I picked up Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla. I said I was! Now, here I am with the Vanilla! Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla is vegan, gluten-free, and organic. Let’s take a look at the nutrition facts and ingredients. Just to see if there are any similarities and differences between the Unsweetened and Vanilla. 🙂

Nutrition Facts & Ingredients: Besides Organic Pea Protein Isolate as the only ingredient. The Vanilla also contains Organic Coconut Palm Sugar and Organic Vanilla with Other Natural Flavor. The Vanilla has 5 grams of added sugars, while the Unsweetened has none. There’s a slight increase in Calcium, Iron, and Sodium too but not by much. Instead of 100 calories, the Vanilla provides 30 more calories — a total of 130 calories. Protein is the same in both, which is 20 grams per serving.

I’ve had much success with Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Unsweetened. I thought I would venture out to the Vanilla flavor just for the sake of trying it out at least once. If I don’t like it, I can always go back to the Unsweetened. No biggie. I must say, I’m very ecstatic about the Vanilla flavor. I hope it works out for me, but we will have to see. I’ll make an update when I begin to use it. Have you used Trader Joe’s Organic Pea Protein Powder Vanilla before? How about the Unsweetened? Which one did you like more?
