Well I did it.
I tried all 6 of the Luna bars my brother brought me. And now, its review time lovelies.
I am sorry for my lack of blogging these past few days. I know it seems like all bloggers are kind of bringing their blogging to a halt. But I promise, once I get back into the swing of things with summer coming to an end and all, I will be blogging away. All day 🙂
I thought since I am taking time time to tell you what I thought of the Luna’s available only in the states, why not Canada’s as well.
Alright, so hows about alphabetical order yes?
Chai Tea Luna (U.S.A)
5/5…but then 3/5
Honestly, it was one of my favourites, and I really wasn’t expecting that!
I really love Chai Tea, and this tasted EXACTLLY like it. I honestly felt like I was eating a Chai Tea Latte. The spices in there were just right, and with the chai tea creamy coating on the bottom served as the foam on top of the latte. I enjoyed every last bite. Given, when I ate it, it had been sitting in my backpack for hours heating up, which may have made it better cause…
A few days later I had another, and I did not enjoy it that much at all. It was kinda chalky, and tasteless. I guess something about the way they make these bars sometimes the combination works, and sometimes it doesn’t. I kind of wanted it to be all melty and gooey again the way it was when I first tried it, so maybe heating it up is the trick? So its hot, like a latte? Although the quality was way different, it was still somewhat enjoyable, so the second time round it was a 3/5.
I had my first Chai Tea Luna alongside a Starbucks Strawberry Banana Vivanno.
I was super nervous to try it. Letting go of that amount of control was a little nerve racking. Having someone make a smoothie for me!? Was I crazy!? In the ten minutes before, I was sweating bullets. Then I took one sip, and well…I highly recommend it! It was light, refreshing, but also super filling cause of the fibre and protein powder. If you are in a rush, and in need of a healthy snack, or light breakfast, the Vivanno is a great choice! I loved the strawberry banana flavour. My brother got the chocolate banana vivanno, that one was a bit of a dooozy. Sometimes when people try to make healthy fruity things a dessert, it fails, and the Vivanno…kinda did.
I have had 3 Vivannos now in the last week, and has anything terrible happened? Nope 🙂 Nothing to fear there!
Chocolate Peppermint Stick (U.S.A)
This was yummmmyyy! 4/5
I’m a big fan of peppermint so I had a feeling I would love this bar. And I did! It tasted like christmas 🙂 Candy cane like, yet also reminded me of a Girl Guide Cookie, so you can imagine how good that tasted.
Cookies n Cream (U.S.A)
No, no, no. 1/5
I was soooo excited for the flavour. I had such high hopes! I love me some Oreos, so that in Luna Bar form? Sounded fantastic.
But ladies, it let me down. This was not a delight. This was the worst of all the flavours I have tried. Instead of tasting like cookies n cream, it was like proteiny chocolate and…thats about it. I wasn’t sure if it was just me, so I let my friend have a taste and her response? after seeing my excitement over the Luna bar loot was “why do you like those bars so much?”
I have heard people love this flavour, so maybe the one I ate was just a doozy, kind of like the chai tea latte bar, maybe this was just the bad one in the batch, but I seriously could barely finish it. Not so hot. But hey, one bad bar out of 8? Clif don’t gotta be worried. 😉
Dulce de Leche (U.S.A)
Very good 4/5
I was not expecting much for this bar. I had heard this was one of the least popular ones, and that it tasted the most like cardboard. WRONG!! I don’t know if it is cause of the new recipe, but this one was really good! Very caramelly, and like most Luna’s I felt like I was eating a decadent desert. Loved it!
It was good, but I’m not a huge fan of lemon flavour. It has the typical rice puff texture of luna bars with a lemon cream coating on the bottom. If you like lemon, than you would love this bar, because lemony it certainly is. I’m just more of a chocolate, caramel kind-a girl.
Nutz Over Chocolate
This is one of the flavours usually available in Canada, and of that selection, its my favourite. It literally tatses like nuts over some yummy chocolate. If you like peanut butter and chocolate, you will like this bar. Something I love doing to it, is microwaving it with the chocolate coating facing up. It gets all melty and messy and amazing.
Peanut Butter Cookie (U.S.A)
Yep pretty hard for me to give low ratings to Lunas. This one was also great. It really did taste like a peanut butter cookie. I paired it with a chocolate milk and was in peanut, chocolate heaven.
Toasted Nuts and Cranberry
These taste great, and are the perfect blend of nuts and cranberry. But when there are such other delicious flavours available, this one always leaves me wishing I had gone for a yummy flavoured Luna. This bar is great in times when I am really not in the mood for a chocolate fix, and is great for people who don’t like chocolate too much. Otherwise, dessert flavoured bars all the way 🙂
My second favourite of the Canadian ones. Doesn’t taste like Smores at all, so don’t expect that. But it does taste like a chocolate coated granola bar, and thats cool with me 🙂
White Chocolate Macadamia (U.S.A)
I love white chocolate. And this bar certainly stands up to its reputation. It tasted exactlly like a white chocolate macadamia cookie. I broke into this bar the first night back when my brother revealed the loot to me, and it was a fantastic way to start off my week of Luna Bar testing. My brother tried it, and loved it too. So it gets 4 thumbs up! Super delicious, soo happy I have 5 more of these 🙂
More exiciting news! My local grovery strore just started carrying Stonyfield Oikos Greek Yogurt and Chobani Greek Yogurt. When I saw them in the store I had a mini heart attack, and was so overcome with joy, but totally unsure of which ones to buy.
So now I need reviews from you girls, what flavours of Oikos and Chobani do you reccomend I try? Any favourites? And how do you girls eat them? What pairs well?
I am so excited to try these out, and am so happy to have a Skyr-like fix here in Canada! Weee!!
I also wanted to thank all of you for your lovely comments on my last post. You guys are all so supportive, and I love hearing from all of you 🙂
I’ll do a more regular post tomorrow but I hope you all are well, and I have missed you, as I always do when I leave the blogging world now and again.
lots of love, xx
