This is Coffee with Larry for Saturday, May 11, 2024.

Coffee with Larry is sponsored by #JAMBAR!

#JAMBAR is the Original Organic Artisan Sports Energy Bar, founded by Jenny Maxwell in 2021 after 3 years of development.
JAMBAR has 34 grams of carbohydrates and 10 grams of protein and is sweetened with maple syrup.

JAMBAR is the Original Organic Artisan Sports Energy Bar, www.jambar.com, CODE Larry 15!

JAMBAR has five flavors, 4 of them vegan! The new #TropicalTrio tastes great!

Jenny Maxwell and her late husband, Brian, founded the sports energy bar category in 1985 with POWERBAR. They sold the brand in 2000, and Brian passed in 2004. For the next two decades, Jenny raised their six children, and then, three years ago, at the suggestion of her youngest daughter, Jenny Maxwell, she began to develop JAMBAR.

I learned about JAMBAR at the Running Event last December, and it tastes great!
