A Concert and Some New LaraBars


Last night I had a blast at the Kenny Loggins concert...but first the pre-show! I was on my way to meet my friend, and I decided to stop for some snacks because I knew we wouldn't have a chance to get dinner. When I walked over to the "bar wall," I was shocked to finally find the famous Peanut Butter LaraBar that everyone has been raving about lately! I also found a LaraBar that I have never heard of before. It was a kid's bar called Jamfrakas. I ate the PB LaraBar waiting for the concert to begin. It was just as delicious as everyone has reported...pure PB heaven. On the way home, I was hungry, probably due to all the dancing I did at the concert. I tried the strawberry Jamfrakas, and I liked it. It was similar to the typical LaraBar, but it had more crispiness throughout due to the rice crisps. This will definitely be my snack of choice when I don't want the higher calorie originals...this one is only 110 calories.

Now, the concert report...My friends and I were lucky enough to get wristbands, which gained us access to front row center spots! It was amazing being that close! Of course we jammed out to Footloose, Danger Zone, Your Momma Don't Dance and Your Daddy Don't Rock and Roll, and I'm Alright, but my absolute favorite of all time is House at Pooh Corner.

It's good to hear that you had a great night out; front row woo-hoo! I'm glad you finally found the bars you were looking for. 110 calories for a bar is great; especially for a quick snack.

That concert looks AMAZING! I miss going to concerts!

I was pumped when I found the PB Lara Bar too - yum!

Those are great pictures! Looks like it was a ton of fun!

I wish I had access to more Lara Bar flavors. For me, it's actually a struggle to find them at all! Enjoy a bite of your next PB one for me! Haha!

I've never heard of either of those bars; the only ones around here that I've seen (and I don't look to be honest) are Cliff. I'll have to be on the lookout for LaraBars because they sound good!

I saw Kenny Loggins in concert a way, way long time ago when I lived in Chicago. It was an outdoor concert at Ravinia. It was a total blast!

larabar bars certainly are great...But we think you also might like mix it up a bit with the Kardea bars. 7g fiber, 7g protein, 150 calories, vegetarian and no dairy (2 are vegan). Also, 1g of heart health plant sterols and low saturated fats. Glad to samples. email us at customerservice@kardeanutrition.com

Glad the concert was fun! I've never seen that kind of larabar. I wonder if they'll pop up soon.
