    I love Luna Bars especially vanilla macademia or the berry. I'm not much for sweets but those hit the spot in the morning when I don't care for a full breakfast. Usually I don't want to feel like I'm eating a pie or an overly sweet cinnamon roll or coffee as well.

    Most bars are really odd tasting for me being a vegan so I always try the flavour a few times before making an investment. Once I find a winner I stick with it!

    I love the cherry pie Lara bar, too. I agree with Timothy; it is exactly the way I want a cherry pie to taste.

    My hubby did not like it, but then he likes most everything sweeter than I do. (I enjoy eating red grapefruits like you would an orange.)

    So far, cherry pie is my absolute favorite. Coconut Cream Pie wasn't too bad, I think. I may try it one more time to remind myself. Apple Pie and Ginger Snap were, eh, okay, but I will try a new flavor before I buy them again (just personal taste buds). Too much spice, for me, I think.

    vs. "most cherry pies."

    I stand by my claim

    Most cherry pies -- commercial ones, that is -- are a) too sweet and b) too gelatinous.

    I prefer mine to be quite runny, actually --- at least, that's the way I'd rather it stray, rather than too dry, or too goopy. Pie (actual pie, not delicious fruit bars) should be eaten, at least optionally, with a spoon. In fact, I think a great way to eat a slice of pie is as the topping on a nice bowl of coffee ice cream.

    I do the same thing for water-- carry my empty one-liter bottle through and fill it on the other side.

    i've actually never had a larabar! i eat luna bars all the time, though, and i love them.

    as for the water while traveling thing... i usually pack an empty sigg bottle, then fill it up once i'm through security.

    i don't believe i have come across a larabar with granola.

    i haven't made a trail mix, but i'd love a couple of good recipes.

    the security requirements are unfortunate, but i guess you can enjoy your water until you go through security, then pick up a bottle of water when you feel thirsty again after you pass through security.

    Aw, man, I didn't know General Foods bought Larabars! I live off these things when I go on trips. It's annoying that the new kids' treats aren't vegan-- I hope that doesn't mean they're going to start adding animal products to the original Larabars.

    My favorite flavor is Peanut Butter Cookie-- delicious! Not crazy about the fruit flavors, which are much easier to find than the nut flavors around here.

    Hi,

    moriond: I just replenished my stock at the Vim & Vigor at Ala Moana! I think they had all the flavors! Haven't checked the Costco yet! Eep! Will have to stow away in a friend's car the next time they go!
    So I was coming to the forums to decide where to post a link to this blog post about someone who discovered Lärabars, and experimented with making her own, when I found this thread was revived. It's gotta be fate! The author did add a postscript and link to where she finally found Lärabars on sale in Paris -- one of the motivations for experimenting with her own recipe.

    I didn't realize that General Foods had bought this company last summer. Also, they seem to have a new product line.

    maverick, our local whole foods (opened last September) also carries these -- but they cost $1.69 each here.

    I overdid it with the Lara bars, and am now taking a vacation from them. I'm currently getting Clif bars at Costco - they're also really good, though I miss the peanut butter varieties (still MIA after the peanut butter scare.)

    I have not tried (and am not really interested in) certain of their flavors, like Key Lime Pie, but the Cherry Pie is the greatest food bar I've ever had, and the Apple is not too far behind. The Cherry Pie one, though ... well, I just wish that more cherry pies actually tasted that good.

    I just discovered the amazing tastiness that is Lara bars. When I was shopping at the discount grocery store in Cleburne, TX, I found Lara bars for $0.69/bar. Since I was needing food bars for my upcoming trip to Europe, I bought all their stock: Chocolate Coffee, Apple Pie and Cocoa Mole.
    Wow . . . tasty and vegan. An amazing combination.

    I've never tried Key Lime but it wouldn't be my first flavor choice. Try Pistachio or Cashew Cookie.

    moriond -- I hope you're not just teasing us about Hazelnut Praline!!
