Spring Break!

Hi everyone!
Whoa mama, its been over three weeks since I last posted. I've been relaxing way too much. Between my bouts of chillin, I tried a couple new vegalicious treats. The first was So Delicious coconut milk yogurt:Ehh... I guess this wasn't so delicious after all. The strawberry flavor was kind of dull. But I spiffed it up with some Smart Bran, kamut puffs, and blueberries!Secondi, I tried the Jocolat Hazelnut flavor:Can I just say-- SO DANG HEAVENLY!
After the Chocolate flavor being so dense and dry, I was wary of the Jocolats, but this flavor was soo perfectly smooth and brownie-like that its wrapper has found a place on my wall (next to the Apple Pie and Pecan Pie Larabar wrappers).Mahh... I want another one right now!

Big news: I am so jealous of my sister because she's going to Paris! Tomorrow!
I couldn't believe it when she told me about buying the tickets on a whim with her friend. She said it is going to be her graduation gift from Appa and that she would compromise by getting a $300 laptop-- haha.

But of course I am so happy that her dream is coming true and I'm really, really excited for her. I made her promise to take pictures of everything she eats and sees for me. It was so funny-- a couple nights ago, she called me and was fretting about what she would wear in Paris. I better tell her to pay more attention to the cafes, shopping, and sights!

Hopefully I'll be able to post her Paris photos for you all next week!

Dark Chocolate Mocha Clif

Another bar review! Sorry, you all are probably barred out, but this is the Clif Nectar Dark Chocolate Mocha: Like the Dark Chocolate Walnut, this bar is a delicious brownie! I couldn't tell much of a difference, but it was undoubtedly rich and perfectly chocolate-y! I think I've finally developed a taste for chocolate...
Could be dangerous.

Bars Galore

It seems like my posts are getting further and further apart. I wish there was more time to do it, but I am reading all your blogs! It's much easier and funner than posting my own bits.
Today's breakfast was a Vanilla Ricera, Heritage cereal, and sliced bananas:The Vanilla Ricera is pretty yummy, but cannot compare with the Blueberry. The first time I bought a Vanilla it went sour so I couldn't try it, but this new one was safe.
Now for bar reviews! I started seeing Pure Bars on some blogs so I convinced myself I needed to try one. This is the Chocolate Brownie flavor:Kind of squashy looking and tasted very brownie-like. I would like it better without all the nuts, though. I like the smoothness of the chocolate-y dateness. I think I may like the texture of Clif Nectar Dark Chocolate Walnut better.
Now for the Pecan Pie Larabar!Can you tell I'm excited about this one? Well I am. The reason is because Pecan Pie is soo good! I never had real pecan pie before (strange?), but this bar makes it seem heavenly. You can really taste the intoxicating cinnamon in there. Definitely added to my favorites.
Next, the Jocolat Chocolate:
Yes, I am a bit sad to tell you this bar was extremely dense and dry. Super chewy chocolate, even almost a little too rich, this one. I had to drink water after every bite because it was so incredibly unmoist. I don't know if I can handle this one again, maybe eat only when a tall glass of water or cup of tea is nearby!Last, but not least, the Cashew Cookie:Maybe it was because I was being a Sandy eating monster when I ate this one right after the Jocolat, but I didn't really enjoy this too much. I remember a very strong cashew flavor, which I don't particularly like. But for cashew lovers like JuJubeans (hi!) this would be a huge hit.
I really can't remember whether I like this or not. I was in a munching craze and didn't really take my time savoring this Larabar as I usually do.

All you Larabar lovers, which is your favorite?
Mine is Apple Pie~<3
