Any other Luna Bar fans out there?
LUNA®, The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women, is the first nutrition bar specifically formulated with a woman’s needs in mind to help nourish them throughout their busy day and lives. LUNA contains nutrients women often lack, like folic acid, calcium, iron, vitamin D and other vitamins and minerals that are essential to a woman’s everyday needs, while being as organic as possible. LUNA is made with 70% organic ingredients and free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup; artificial sweeteners, flavors or preservatives; and ingredients sourced from GMOs. SRP: $1.39/bar
The folks over at Luna have kindly sent me two of their new flavors to sample: Chocolate Chunk and Chocolate Dipped Coconut!
Chocolate Chunk is Luna’s nutritious take on the classic chocolate chip cookie with big, mouth-watering chunks of dark chocolate. When I read this my first thought was, “Can a granola bar REALLY taste just like a chocolate chip cookie?” but Chocolate Chunk comes pretty close. I decided I really like “chunks” over “chips” for that extra chocolatey taste.
Chocolate Dipped Coconut is a deliciously decadent combination of toasted coconut and chocolate. I wasn’t sure what to expect from this flavor, to be honest, since I’m not a HUGE coconut fan. But this bar was a pleasant surprise! The coconut flavor is not overwhelming in the least. It was strong enough that I could taste it, but subtle enough that it didn’t overtake the chocolate either. Thumbs up.
I always want to be completely fair and honest in my product reviews on Fitness & Feta, so I would like to note that I personally prefer having a fruit or nut flavored bar over a chocolate one for a snack. I just don’t crave it! Luna bars are my go to when traveling and need a healthier snack option between meetings with customers or on the plane. I also enjoy having them as a quick snack when running around between work, my classes, physical therapy, etc. And for a pre-workout snack, I just prefer a different flavor than chocolate. So although I really did like these two bars and they definitely lived up to their descriptions, my personal favorite Luna bar flavors are still Vanilla Almond, Toasted Nuts & Cranberry, and Iced Oatmeal Raisin – in that order.
But I’ll let you guys be the judge!
