About Luna Bar

When it comes to food, our philosophy is simple: We say no to guilt, deprivation, and dieting—yes to intuitive nutrition, pleasure, quality ingredients and, of course, chocolate. We also say yes to community. From the LUNAFEST film festival and partnering with the Breast Cancer Fund to Team LUNA Chix, we support strong, creative and committed women, coast-to-coast. Most of all, we say yes to all women who wake up every day and make it happen—at work, in class, on the running path or at the playground with your kids. Whether you need a snack, need a break or just need to connect, LUNA has something for you. (source: Lunabar.com)

The Ratings

Taste
The chocolate coating was being described as very rich and creamy. Buyers’ opinions about the taste were very widespread but mainly very positive and the majority liked them a lot.

Texture
Buyers describe it as a little gooey, dense and maybe a bit too chewy. The flavor of for example cherry and almond is definitely there but no or little of the actual fruit/nuts. No crunch. Buyers advice against ordering them during the summer months due to melted chocolate coating.

Ingredients
Luna Protein bars are a little smaller than the regular Luna bars, but still have about 180 calories. Luna sources ingredients that are not genetically engineered. They also don’t use any hydrogenated oils.

Price
Like all Clif Bar products, their line Luna Bars is very affordable with $1.69 per bar at retail. Better deals can be found online.

Price: $20.30 for 12/box

  1. The Luna protein bars are awesome! My favorite is the Mint Chocolate but they have a decent selection of flavors to choose from and I haven’t tried one yet that I didn’t like.

  2. We are not fans of this bar for a few reasons: the taste is chalky and the ingredients are sub-par. Rather than cocoa butter, the chocolate uses Palm Kernel Oil which is lesser quality and controversial in terms of sustainability. Also soy protein isolate is a known allergen and has a lot of other potential bad effects. For the calories, sugar and protein there are so many better options.
    We rate several here, but this list is soon to be updated. http://athleticmindedtraveler.com/blog/energy-bar-analysis-and-comparison-let-the-data-speak
