Protein Bar Review

Full Bar Rant… Or I should say “Review”

Ok, so I mentioned my thoughts about this bar on my previous post… but let me just put a picture so you can see and know what to stay far away from!  I have to say, the Full Bar tastes like stale puffed cereal.  I honestly thought it was so stale that I looked at the expiration date!!  Yup… not expired… just stale.  Great stats, but not great taste.  But yes, shamefully, I ate the whole thing.  Why?  Because I hate wasting food (=money).  Biggest waste of like almost $3 of my life!  And worst way to eat 160 calories.

Luna Protein Bar- Chocolate Peanut Butter Review

Ok, so the other day I was at Target, loading up on my protein bars… and I see this chocolatey-peanut buttery goodness calling my name.  So hey, it’s .99 cents, why not?  As I was on my way home way home from Target (only 15 minute drive), it kept calling my name.  It was like 1:30, and I still hadn’t eaten lunch.  So, I tried ignoring it… but it was impossible.  Me and peanut butter don’t “wait”… so yes, I ripped it open. 

My review?  YUMMMY!  I felt like I was eating a Girl Scout cookie, the peanut butter kind.  Took me back to my childhood.  The bad side?  Wayyy too small of a bar!  I looked down in the wrapper, hoping I broke it in to two and just forgot.  The stats: very good!  Less than 200 calories, and equal protein and sugar.  The only thing… since I was eating it as part of my lunch, it didn’t fill me up at all!!  I got home and felt like I could still eat the kitchen.  I’ll have to try it again as a legit snack and see how it holds me over. 

Have you tried it yet?  Are you tempted to try everything with “peanut butter” in the name?

  1. Great post! What’s crazy is that I have the opposite feelings as you. :) I loved the full bar and thought the luna protein tasted like chocolate cardboard. I guess that shows that everybody has different taste’s and likes. But I do agree that if it says chocolate or especially peanut butter on the label, then I will definitely buy it!

  2. Oh and thank you so much for such a sweet response to my first comment on your page! I agree, it is so awesome to find people you can relate to on so many levels. I think we might just have to arrange a meet-up someday!
