I have been noticing, as have others around the blogosphere, that the Lara Bars seem to have gotten smaller recently. I haven’t figured out yet if the new flavors are just smaller or if maybe the size varies between flavors as well. When I was shopping today at Raisin Rack, I ventured into the Lara Bar section to do a little field research. The bars ranged in size by weight from 1.6oz to 1.8 oz. The newer flavors definitely appeared smaller (shorter). I bought 2 “old” flavors, Cherry Pie (1.7oz) and a Key Lime Pie (1.8oz). The Cherry Pie is visibly smaller than the Key Lime Pie. I don’t remember them being like this in the past.
When I got home, I brought out my new PB & J Lara Bar (1.7oz) & took a picture of it next to a Coconut Chocolate Chew (1.8oz). You can see in the pics that the CCC is visibly bigger than the PB & J. CCC has been around for a while, while PB & J is one of the 3 new flavors.
I don’t know, maybe I am obsessing too much over the whole thing! LOL!
What I do know is this: the new flavors ROCK! I love the PB & J & Tropical Tart. I still haven’t tried the German Chocolate Cake because I am obviously too busy analyzing the size of my Lara Bars. ;)
