Apple Pie is like the Taylor Swift of the dessert world. Even the most ardent of music snobs can’t help themselves when they hear old T-Swift belting out another radio smash shit. The same thing applies to apple pie, who doesn’t like apple pie? I mean there was a whole Seinfeld episode on how he was mystified that the girl didn’t want to try any apple pie. Unless you have some sort of allergy to apples, apple pie is a damn delicious dessert. When done well, I dare say it’s maybe one of the best desserts around. Think about it, buttery crust, crisp baked apples, brown sugar crumble?!
So take all that imagery and squish it into a health bar. Somethings are lost along the way. But at the heart of it that’s what the Larabar – Apple Pie flavor does. Now let me preface this by saying, you are eating a “health” fruit & nut bar. This is not a Nutri-Grain Bar or any sort of cereal bar. The apple pie flavor for Larabar is the perfect fruit and nut bar. The mixture of apples and other fruits are just at the right ratios to deliver a really satisfying treat.
The usage of the right spices like cinnamon and a touch of nutmeg deliver a snack bar that is a perfect quick fix if you are getting those old 2PM Insulin blues *in a T.V. voice*.
Final Grade: A, this is probably one of the best flavors that Larabar has for their standard bars. Go get one.
