Luna Bar Chocolate Chunk

The one thing that seems to always hit my sweet tooth? Cookies. I prefer cookies over brownies or cupcakes, or any other sweet. So of course I was excited to hear Luna came out with a Chocolate Chunk flavor, and I was sent a free bar to try in the mail =)

First, I was impressed with the nutritional stats- only 11 grams of sugar , 180 calories, and 9 grams of protein for the whole bar. But how did it taste?

It certainly did remind of a cookie. It  was chewy and soft, yet crispy at the same time. It was “salty” in a way that I needed water to drink with this bar, kind of like when someone eat pretzels. It just craves a drink! There was also just a hint of vanilla flavor. The chocolate pieces were the best part- big and they had a nice bite them. Smooth in consistency, and  kind of like a cross between dark and milk chocolate, not too sweet and not too bitter.

Overall, pretty good. I felt that of the Luna bars I have tried in the past, (like one of my favorites, here! ) this one wasn’t as sweet as the others. However, I still liked it, and I loved the chocolate pieces throughout the bar. I would eat this again. 4 stars

Whats your favorite Luna Bar flavor?

1 bar is 180 calories, 5 grams of fat, 26 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 11 grams of sugar and 9 grams of protein.

    I saw this at the store yesterday and decided not to get it! Instead I got lemon zest! Man now I can’t wait to go back! I love almost every flavor of the luna bars so I’m pretty sure I’ll like this one.

    I have been keeping my eye out for this bar as well as a couple of other flavors I’ve wanted to try but haven’t showed up yet in our kroger. 🙂 I love the cookies and cream and the lemon zest.

    Oooo!! That sounds awesome! I usually prefer Clif bars over Luna’s, but if I see this in the store I’ll have to try it!

    I thought the chocoate chunk bar was great! I’m not a huge Luna fan mostly because I don’t care for the fake tasting coating on the bottom of the majority of their bars so I was glad to see this one didn’t have that – just real chocolate chunks. Will definitely buy it again. It kinda reminds me of a MUCH better tasting chocolate chip granola bar.
