LARABAR - Cashew Cookie
After scanning the shelves and seeing the words “Cashew” and “Cookie” I knew I’d found my perfect energy bar match.
Or had I?
My mouth was not in love. First, this bar contains only dates and cashews. While I like those things and understand that they can be part of a delicious and healthy energy bar, on their own they do not equal a Cashew Cookie. In fact, they’re sort of like those no-bake cookies that you make once in awhile because you forget that they’re just not that great. I suppose that if the folks at Larabar added a dash of salt and a drop of vanilla to this snack then it would finally approach flavorful cookiedom.
