I used to be a huge fan of Larabars. When I first discovered them 2 years ago I would buy 4 of the 16 packs at one time so my siblings and I could enjoy 4 different flavors at one time. We would all then split the different flavors.
Larabars are very convenient and not too expensive. They are made of raw nuts, fruit and spices or things like lemon peel. You have probably tasted or at least heard of them yourself.
What if I told you that there is a bar that is 100% paleo? That is made up of mostly coconut? One that is 100% organic?
Well, now there is. The bar is CocoMoJoe JoeBars and they are divine. I was asked to try a sampler pack and then write a review about them so here I am. I will no doubt recommend these bars to anyone who is asking for a convenient food that they can enjoy while traveling, as a snack or if they are running late. These would also be excellent to enjoy before attending a party that may serve a bunch of junk.
They have no preservatives so they won’t last forever but they don’t need to be refrigerated since it contains fruit and nuts just like larabars.
What is the difference between CocoMoJoe and Larabar?
CocoMoJoe is organic while larabar is not. CocoMoJoe is made up of mostly coconut which is full of heart healthy saturated fat. This includes coconut oil which can be very healing. Larabars are mostly dates and nuts which can be harder to digest compared to coconut for most humans.
Larabar is cheaper per bar. However, CocoMoJoe JoeBars have about 340 calories per bar where Larabars usually have between 200 and 220. If you compare by calories, there is not much difference in cost if any at all. It just depends on where you buy the bars.
Both are made of raw, whole, real ingredients.
What is the best flavor?
There are 6 different flavors and I was able to try each one. I’m hoping that Joe will craft a few more. Perhaps I can give him a suggestion. If you have a suggestion then please leave a comment below or send me an email.
My favorite was coffee. This definitely due to the fact that I love coffee. I am not a big drinker but when I enjoy it, it’s definitely black. Coffee anything is awesome to me.
I also enjoyed all the other flavors. Green was probably my least favorite but I also realized that it was the most nutritious. It did not taste bad by any means and I would enjoy it over and over again.
The other 4 flavors (chocolate, cranberry, fig and mango) tasted exactly like it says.
All bars have the same basic ingredients consisting of coconut, walnuts, coconut nectar, chia seeds, maca root powder, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Each bar then has other ingredients added depending on its flavor.
Do you still enjoy popcorn on occasion? Try Cocomo Corn
Corn is a grain, not a veggie. Over 90% of corn is a GMO which is potentially harmful. Corn is very yummy, especially popcorn. Yet, it’s definitely not Paleo. I have not enjoyed popcorn all year. Since discovering CocoMoJoe, this may change.
Take a look at the ingredients of Cocomo Corn.
I don’t know about you, but that sounds extremely intriguing and yummy to me. Because it’s organic, the corn is NOT a GMO. That’s a win. The sugar is from the coconut. Win. It contains coconut oil. Win. The last 3 ingredients are sea salt, vanilla extract and baking soda. Win.
That’s a lot of wins.
As you can probably tell, I have not yet tried the Cocomo Corn. I regret not asking if I could try a sample. They probably assumed that I did not want to try it since it’s not technically “paleo.”
I don’t care. I want to try this damn Cocomo Corn. Don’t you?!
The 5% Discount Code
Joe recently started this business and is trying to just keep it afloat. If you use the discount code “PRIMAL” at checkout then you will receive 5% off your total order. I’ll earn 5% in commissions.
If you buy a 12 pack of the CocoMoJoe Joebars with this discount code then you will save $1.80 and I’ll earn $1.80. That may not seem like much but it does add up. For me, that’s more than enough for a dozen medium sized pastured eggs! So, for every 12 pack you buy I get to buy a dozen pastured eggs. You may want to try that Cocomo Corn too! If you do, please leave a comment below with your thoughts or send me an email. I’d love to learn what you think.
Did Joe make CocoMoJoe Joebars with you in mind? That depends on who you are of course. In my mind, if you stay at home all the time and thus cook all of your meals then these bars may not do you any good. However, if you plan on traveling soon, take small trips frequently or need a healthy convenience bar for whatever reason then these bars are probably perfect.

I’ll be “camping” with my siblings Thursday through Saturday and I wish I wouldn’t of eaten all 12 from the sampler pack I received a couple of weeks ago.
