"What In The World Is A Jamfrakas?" Giveaway

I discovered the strawberry JamFrakas last week and loved it. I was surprised yesterday to find two more flavors: Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter. I have searched the web, but I found little information on these yummy and healthy snacks. I have found some sites that report that there are two other flavors that I have not found yet: Apple and Chocolate Banana. The JamFrakas Bars are very similar to LaraBars, but they are smaller, lower in calories, and have a little more crisp to them. I have loved the 3 flavors I have tried, but the Peanut Butter was the best. Since I haven't seen these around the foodie blog world, I am assuming that they are not easy to find. I know how frustrated I was when I saw the PB LaraBars all over the blogs, but I could not find them....So, I wanted to give you all a chance to get your hands on these. To win a sample of the 3 flavors I have tried, leave me a comment with your dream flavor for a snack/energy bar. Comments will be accepted until midnight next Sunday, October 12. Two winners will be chosen
to receive a 3 pack sampler. I will start the giveaway fun with my dream flavor: French Toast!

jenngirl said...

I saw those at the grocery store last week and soo wanted to try them!! They look yummy :)

Ali said...

I just found your blog and I see some similarities in our lifestyles! I have never heard of Jamfrakas, but they sound great!

In hopes of winning a yummy sample- a couple flavors I would love to see out there: dark chocolate-banana-peanut butter, raspberry brownie, caramel apple(like apples-caramel-nuts), or possibly pumpkin pie- yummmmmm!

saucymomma said...

I am a huge fan of LaraBars, but have not tried the JamFrakas yet. I can't wait to try them and I'm making a Whole Foods run tomorrow. My dream flavor??? What about creme brulee or peanut butter/nutella swirl?

eatingbender said...

Interesting! I've never tried a Jamfrakas bar!

If I could have my pick of bar flavors, I would choose a "PB & Co." - it would have squares that would break off (like a chocolate bar), and each square would be a PB & Co. flavor - Dark Chocolate Dreams, Cinnamon Raisin, Mighty Maple, The Bees Knees...can you imagine?!?!

HoneyB said...

Hi Megan! I too love the Larbars and am lucky enough to find them in our co-op here! I love anything with chocolate and/or peanut butter, but I love fruit flavors too. Ha ha, guess I'm easy....

Reeni said...

Chai-spiced banana fig or white-chocolate & pumpkin, yum!!

Jo said...

yummy! My wish would be dulce de leche!

HangryPants said...

My dream bar would be pumpkin graham bar. Like a Honey Graham Z-Bar with pumpkin!

Laura said...

I couldn't find much info. either when I googled these bars! Thanks for the chance to try these!

I would choose honey graham cashew drizzled with dark chocolate! Kind of random but a mix of my other favoirte bars. Yum.

Zesty Cook said...

Very Interesting Meg.... I think my favorite bar would consist of chocolate... pecans, caramel and flax seed.

robin_titan said...

pomegranate flavored definitely!

lauren said...

after I saw these on your page, I searched around for them and cant find anything!! I hope I win! My dream flavor would be peanut butter/chocolate/cheesecake.

ikkinlala said...

My dream flavour would be lemon poppyseed, I think. I've seen lemon before, but not with poppyseeds.

Topher said...

my dream flavor would be either apple pie w/caramel or a chocolate chip cookie dough

Meghann said...

That's so sweet of you to have a contest. I haven't heard of these so I'm excited to have the chance to win them.
My dream bar?
Birthday Cake Batter!!!

Simple and Divine said...

DEFINITELY IN ON THIS ONE!!! So excited, too!!!!!

Birthday Cake batter
White Chocolate Lemon Drop
Mint Chocolate Fudge Ripple
KeyLime Cheesecake

OHHH I WANT THESE!!! I just tried the Kardea Bars and I am HOOKED! If you can't find them... I'll send you some for some Jamfrakas!!! I'm going to order a buttload of the Kardeas! ;)

glidingcalm said...

I think we all know what my dream flavor would be: Peanut Butter Carrot Cake....or maybe even better: Peanut Butter BANANA Carrot Cake. Woweeeeeeeee

pumpkin banana would be good too. We all love pumpkin banana oats in the blogging world...but it's hard to find pumpkin flavored bars besides the Crunchy Kashi one which is more savory than sweet!

HAPPY MONDAYYYYY MEGAN!

Mary H. said...

Wow, I've never seen those.

My ideal made up flavor would be some sort of PMS combo food like chocolate covered pretzels - to encourage me to have a healthy snack when I am craving something bad. Who knows, I might even get inspired to work out after eating it. :)

ttfn300 said...

wow, i like the looks/sounds of those new products!! i was thinking banana-PB-honey when I read this earlier, but that's a popular idea :)

Krista said...

Pumpkin spice YUMMMMM!

Maddy said...

I'm gunna go with carrot cake or pumpkin cheesecake. Both of those sound delicious!

Caitlin (see bride run) said...

i think a "sangria" flavored bar with chunks of wine-soaked fruit would be pretty awesome. :)

i wanna try the jamfrakas!

Marlow said...

Ooohh...we don't have these! My co-op said they are not available through their distributor. We do have the Peanut Butter Cookie Bar, want me to send you some? It would be my pleasure!
As for a dream flavor, I would have to say Cake Batter with bits of graham cracker.

Adam said...

Hmmm Dream flavor?

Vanilla Cherry Collide. It sounds tasty and fun :)

Katie said...

Dream flavor would most definitely be chocolate peanut butter banana. I love PB and banana sandwiches and chocolate makes everything better!

Natalie Rae said...

Pumpkin Spice or Birthday Cake with frosting swirls just like the dreyer's ice cream

Erin said...

I love Larabars so I'm sure I'll enjoy these just as much. Also, French Toast?! That's brilliant marketing.

leslie said...

dark chocolate, almond butter, with a graham cracker crust...yummmmmyyyy

Krista said...

TIRAMISU would be my dream flavor! Yummy!

Patty said...

My dream flavor would include all of my favorites: pumpkin/caramel/apple/raisin/cinn - yum!

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

Interesting! Mmhhh, Peanut Butter flavored...

Cheers,

Rosa

Kristin said...

anything PB and chocolate!!!!!! (a great combo that everyone loves)

Kate said...

oh gosh, the possibilities! these may have already been said, but i'll go for it anyway:

almond butter and banana

white chocolate mousse (you know, the flavor of frozen yogurt at tcby that is not vanilla but not really anything else either...and so very delicious!)

pumpkin latte (just like the wonderfully autumnal starbucks beverage, but in a crunchy, fiber-full, more thigh-friendly version)

Jenn said...

Mine would be peanut butter hot fudge sundae with marshmallow mixed in...holy goodness :-)

katherine said...

a fabulous flavor would be Banana Pudding!
layers of banana, vanilla creaminess, and nilla wafer-like cookie pieces...yum!

and with autumn upon us you what could be more comforting than Pumpkin Chai!??

RhodeyGirl/Sabrina said...

dream flavor?

tiramisu.

for surez

Kath said...

OMG all of your flavors sound divine!!!!

I was going to say Birthday Cake since mine is in 3 weeks, but someone already did! The Creme Brulee, Graham Cracker and Pumpkin Cheesecake sound awesome too.

For the official contest I'll go with a Chocolate Covered Espresso Bean Crunch bar :)

OR what about a Butterscotch Buttercream Bar.

OK, one more: Kahlua Cream WITH a Chocolate Covered Espresso Bean Crunch :)

ashley said...

Ooooh, I'd vote for glazed doughnut! YUM.

Carrie H said...

Oooohhh, I know my idea isn't that original, but dark chocolate peanut butter. But, really dark chocolate and peanut butter, like when you mix PB with chocolate chips and heat until almost melted ... There is nothing like the real thing. Except my dream energy bar. Yum!

Carrie H

Rachel said...

My dream flavor would be Baklava! Of course, that is really a dream flavor for anything...I always submit it for Ben & Jerry's...

kamewh said...

Choc chip cookie dough! Thank you for the giveaway!

Kathryn said...

I'd love to taste Pumpkin Coconut Dream.

Lori said...

Mine would have to be Mozart Chocolate. I fell in love with everything Mozart on my trips to Vienna. Supposedly Mozart's favorite was marzipan. So anything with the name is made with marzipan - chocolates, croissants, gelato, coffees. I'm thinking a tasty marzipan filling covered in rich dark chocolate. May throw in some healthy stuff like oats for good measure.

Marianne said...

Here are some of mine:

Hedgehog (hazelnut & chocolate)
White Chocolate, cranberry & pecan
Honey Crueller (mmmmm, donuts)
Mud Pie
Fluffernutter
Anything cheesecake!

brittany said...

I've never seem these Jamfrakas. Where did you get yours? I think the flavor I would like most would be Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough! Yum.

Courtney said...

Mmmmm, these look delicious! Thanks so much for the giveaway! I have a couple "dream bar" ideas:
-Caramel Candy Bar (chocolate-peanut-caramel)
-Pretzel Toffee Chip Brownie (need we say more?!?) :)

Sharon said...

I've seen Larabars before, but these are something new to me! They sound intriguing actually!

Satisfying my Sweet Tooth said...

Anything healthy that doesn't taste like cardboard would be great. Something chocolate with caramel, peanut butter, or even fruity.

BaL said...

Oh... mmmmm

A trio of raspberry-pistachio-chocolate bar...

Omg....

Lora said...

sugar cookie flavor!

Lacey Nicole said...

oh my gosh i was going to say french toast with maple syrup!!!! can i still say this?! i can't believe that was yours, too. :)

katherine2 said...

how about Spiced Carrot Cake

or Pina Colada

what a great question to think about :)

C said...

Hmmm... I know pumkin pie has been said, but that would be delicious. What about Oatmeal raison cookie, chololate chip banana bread, fudge-nut-crunch (chocolate, nuts and granola), cappaccino with chocolate chips, or mint chocolate (like the thin mint girl scout cookies!!)

Simple and Divine said...

Ohhh Butterfinger would be fun too! Or Pina Colada :)

Hungrylawstudent said...

My dream flavor would be pumpkin white chocolate frosting! Yum. Those bars look really cool!

meghanN said...

-chocolate,coconut,apple (like those deeeelish apples they sell at fairs)
-frosted gingerbread cookie :)
-mocha latte! mhmm
