Blueberry Larabar

The great folks at Larabar sent me a sample of one of their newest flavors, Blueberry Muffin.

I've eaten MANY Larabars over the years, and I'm proud to say I've tried most of the flavors (reviews are here).  But they made my heart be still when they launched a flavor that has a likeness to one of my favorite foods in general -- blueberry muffin!

Upon trying this, I really did taste a resemblance.  Something about the sweet outer layer reminded me of the glaze they sometimes put on blueberry muffins, and the tiny plump bits of dried fruit satisfied my need for tender blueberries.

Of course, there is no delicious crusty "muffin top" involved in this Larabar, and if you're looking for that aspect, you're probably out of luck.  But the flavor does do the pastry some justice, and is probably a whole lot healthier, as well. :)

  1. Me likey your new photo taking skills long time.

    I haven't seen these around yet but I've never found one that I liked more than my beloved coconut flavor. To be honest, sometimes when I eat these bars at the wrong time of day, like morning, it sort of makes me gag a bit. Textural thing. Love the photo!
