Review: Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte Larabar

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about Larabar introducing a brand new flavor: Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte.  Just this week I received some complimentary samples to review & I got right to work!  I don’t think there has been a Larabar flavor that I haven’t liked, but I was really looking forward to this version because I love chocolate (duh) and I love cherries.  They just keep coming up with better ideas for these bars and I love every one of them!

I am here to tell you that this bar is every bit as good as it sounds, if not better.  Dried cherries are one of my favorite dried fruits and chocolate…you know how I feel about chocolate.  The bar is moist & flavorful with chunks of almonds & cashews.  I loved this bar!!  There are just a handful of ingredients:

Dates, chocolate chips, almonds, dried cherries, cashews & sea salt.

More from Larabar:

The cherry didn’t fall far from the tree for Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte, whose inspiration (and name) came from a combination of Cherry Pie and our Fair Trade Certified™ chocolate chips. With less than 200 calories and just 6 simple ingredients, this snack carries on a great family tradition of simple, indulgent flavors.

Well done, Larabar, well done.  Smile


Do you have any weekend plans?  I am probably finishing up my 9 mile as this post goes up and will be getting ready to host a gaggle full of girls for a “Game Night” sleepover.  Something tells me that they will be up much longer than I will be.

    What do you do when you are allergic to chocholate? Every bar out there pretty much puts chocholate on their stuff. So Lara as much as I would love to try their bar, they need to make a bar without chocholate and SOy then I will try it and buy it.

  • I'm excited to try this one… and I think my husband would like it too! I finally convinced him to try a Larabar (he just automatically assumed they were full of soy protein and other things he didn't want to eat… was pleasantly surprised when he tried the Cherry Pie flavor and LOVED it!) My trouble is it always seems to take forever to find new flavors in the stores around me when they introduce a new flavor! :-)
