From Emma: Please allow me to introduce Lara. In May 2000, after a normal hike on the beautiful Rocky Mountains on Colorado, Lara was in need of an energy kick. After finding nothing satisfactory or attractive amongst the coffee-guzzling crowd, little did she know that this hike was going to spark a mountain of an idea...
After scouring the aisles of grocery stores and noting popular flavours of ice-creams and cookies, Lara set to work with her blender. Realising that she was only going to gain real, sustainable energy, from pure, raw, wholesome foods, in went the ingredients: fruits and nuts. After tampering with a few recipes and testing her formulas on willing family and friends she had finally created an absolutely delicious concoction of Larabars, all flavoured and named exactly as they taste; 'Cherry Pie', 'Apple Pie', 'Banana Cookie', 'Cashew Cookie', 'Cocoa Mole' and 'Ginger Snap'.
We had an absolute field day in the office when Steffi, Larabar's UK Marketing Manager came up to Fresh HQ last week with a mound of samples to taste test. It is a real treat when you eat something that actually tastes as it says it will! And they really do! They are filling, full of wholesome ingredients and incredibly delicious! What's more, they are 100% raw! You will be just as shocked as us when you try them. And now we have them in stock, you have no reason not to!
(By far my favourite is 'Ginger Snap', but that's because I have a thing going on with ginger at the moment... Karen loves the 'Pecan Pie' - coming soon - while Pete loves the 'Cherry Pie' and Russell and Sarah just seem to love them all! Oh yes and little Luke, 3, loves the 'Banana Cookie', although he's yet to say no to any, which actually, is true of us all...)
