GirlSnacks: Sara & Lara
There are a lot of men out there who probably grip on Sweet & Sara S'mores at the Foodery while building a sixer . I mean, why else would they sell them there? Since the veganized marshmallow pies first showed up in Philadelphia last year, I've seen them at healthis (health food delis) everywhere. The $4 chocolatiers are kept refrigerated, a perfect cold smack of sugar on a sauna-like day. They come in original or peanut butter. Some places even carry the flavored vegan marshmallows (cinnamon pecan, strawberry, insane-looking variety pack). If you're a guy and you regularly eat these, high five. There is nothing sexier than a man with a vegan treat in one hand and a cold bottle in the other.
Up there in the realm of sexy, is a woman with a LaraBar. This might conjure up a makeup-less yoga-pantsed woman that you see in whole grain cereal commercials, but cool yourself. It's still hot. Laras are a million times more virile than Lunas. Also, to be real, we know that men eat these things. We've witnessed it. I picked up new flavors the other day: Tropical Fruit Tart, Peanut Butter & Jelly, and Jocalat German Chocolate Cake. The Tropical bar is a smack of orange with undertones of coconut and you can bet I will pack a bunch of them for my upcoming trip to Germany. I'm not too worried about finding great food over there, but it's like veg constitution to have a Clif or Lara at the ready whenever you leave the country or venture into the Midwest. Or, say, Kensington, still.
