Influenster Holiday VoxBox Review: Larabar & Mentos Pure Fresh Sugarfree Gum

by davincikittieDecember 24, 2011

It’s time for more Influenster Holiday VoxBox product reviews! The next two are…

 

Larabar, Cashew Cookie fruit & nut food bar

Packaging: Traditional energy bar size, wrapped in printed plastic.  Colorful and descriptive. 

Appearance: Rectangular bar, organic-looking, moist enough to keep it packed together but not moist enough to cause condensation in the wrapper

Thoughts: This isn’t my first experience with Larabar, nor will it be my last.  The flavor I received was Cashew Cookie, and it was good.  It tasted of cashew and had a little sweetness to it, thanks to the dates, without being overpowering.  Those are the only two ingredients: cashew and date.  No preservatives or extra “flavor” added, just unprocessed cashews and dates pressed into a bar.  These are ideal for taking on road trips or out hiking and camping.  They’re easy to slip into a pocket (especially if you get the new “mini” size) and are about as healthy and natural as you can get in an energy bar.  Occasionally I go too long between meals and need to eat RIGHT NOW, and I kept a Larabar in my purse for emergencies for a long time.  You can buy these at most grocery stores and online, and your local Costco might also sell them in bulk.  Highly recommended!

Verdict: Would definitely buy it!

Rating: 4.5/5

 

Mentos Pure Fresh Sugarfree Chewing Gum

Packaging: Easy to open while still keeping the gum inside fresh, the tube fits comfortably in the palm of your hand. 

Appearance: The same size as the Mentos chewy fruit candies that come in a roll, these gum tablets are white speckled with bright blue with a hollow, mint gel-filled center

Thoughts: Having several crowns and filled cavities, I generally stay away from gum, but these were pretty good!  The tablet is initially a little crunchy feeling as you bite through the outer shell, then releases a burst of mint as the flavored gel inside touches your tongue.  The first few minutes of chewing it are a little like chewing candy and are when the flavor profile is the strongest.  After that, the gum feels like normal gum (the non-sticky kind that won’t break your jaw to chew) but the minty freshness sticks around for a while.  It’s also sugarfree!

Verdict: Recommended for gum and fresh breath enthusiasts

Rating: 4.0/5
