Luna Chocolate Dipped Coconut Bar

I’ve seen this bar in the stores for a little while now, but for some reason never picked it up. Finally, the opportunity came the other day when I was hungry and on-the-go, so I needed a little pick me up. This was perfect to satisfy me, and not slow me down with  my hectic schedule! That’s what I like about Luna Bars- they have protein and vitamins/minerals, but are also tasty and easy to eat. They don’t fall apart or get ruined if they end up being smooshed in the bottom of my bag, either. (;

I opened up the bar, I really love the design! Even a friend of mine said it was one of the “prettiest” bars she had seen from Luna. Here’s how it looked

There was a chocolate layer on the bottom, followed by the “soy” part, and then a light coconut topping. At first bite, I noticed it didn’t have that thick of the middle soy layer as the other bars do, and actually, I thought this bar was thinner than the other bars I have had in the past. I didn’t find it to be incredibly sweet, and I found the coconut flavor to be mild.

The bottom layer had a milk chocolate, slightly salty flavor. The coconut flavor was not overpowering or really overly noticeable at all, and had a sweet yet salty flavor. The top layer, had a white chocolate flavor, with coconut undertones. I thought it tasted similar to the White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Bar. I also thought the coconut had a bit of an off flavor.

Overall, not bad. I do wish there was a more predominant coconut flavor. I also needed a glass of water to drink with this, as it has that “salty” flavor to it!  3 1/2 stars

  1. @Christina I have to agree that it was good but not my favorite. @Rodzilla And yes, sometimes I think the soy is a bit overpowering!

  2. So jealous right now as always of your reviews. 😉 I have been looking for that flavor to try and have yet to find it. Guess i’m not missing out on too much obviously.

  3. hahha thanks Ashley! Yes, it was good, but not spectacular. Hopefully you can still get a chance to try one! 🙂

  4. Maybe. I might just try to order a variety pack online that contains it. I normally don’t order online but I gave into the pb2 flour so i’ll probably give into this one along with chia seeds. ;P
    Have you had the peppermint chocolate flavor? I hate peppermint stuff but I tried one today and it tasted like peppermintbark 9the one peppermint thing I like). Soo good.

  5. I haven’t actually! Im not a big fan of mint, so ive been hesistant to try that one. thanks for the tip tho, ill have to give it a try 🙂

  6. i loved this bar the first time i had it & then not so much after that.
    i like luna’s protein bars b/c they seem to be more dense & filling

  7. I wasn’t a big fan of this bar, I tried it by accident right as it came out. Mine had a kind of underwhelming coconut taste, you could taste more of the chocolate-y bottom.

    I like the new Clif Bar’s coconut flavor though

  8. ah, I tried that! the coconut chocolate chip. I agree, it was pretty tasty! I wanted to review it, but I had to eat it in such a hurry I didnt have time. Maybe in the future! 🙂
