Product Review: Strawberry Shortcake and Coconut Pineapple Cake Larabars

LÄRABAR has released two new limited edition flavors for summer – Strawberry Shortcake and Coconut Pineapple Cake.

I’m going to say right up front that these bars are not 100% SCD legal because they contain a dried juice concentrate.



Being that the juice is the the last ingredient on the list, and I feel good abut LÄRABAR, I was good with giving these a try. The decision of course is your own. I don’t really recommend LÄRABAR for anyone at the beginning stages of the diet, or who are experiencing a lot of symptoms because the nuts and dates could be an irritant. But once you are back to feeling good LÄRABARs make a convenient on-the-go snack. The decision to try these two flavors is of course up to you.

Strawberry Shortcake

I love this bar. It’s one of the most ambitious bars from LÄRABAR yet. For one thing it has macadamia nuts! It also has pecans, dried strawberries, and dried cranberries (LÄRABAR typically labels every ingredient, but I sent them an email to verify whether or not these have sugar).

Ingredients (I have already verified that the vanilla does not contain sugar):

Coconut Pineapple Cake

This one reminded me of the tropical flavor they had a while back, but I like this one better. It has more simple flavor with just pineapple and coconut. It’s kind of like their Coconut Cream Pie flavor with a little kick. I really like the hint of lime (not SCD legal) that’s there.
