LUNA Bar Love + Giveaway

I love LUNA Bars.  Do you? If not, I’m here to hopefully change that because when I find something good I just need to share it! And stick with me to the end where one lucky reader will win a box full! It’s worth it.. trust me!

LUNA Bars come in 3 varieties:  Regular LUNA Bars, Protein Bars, Fiber Bars.  I am a huge fan of the regular bars and protein bars!  How big of a fan? This is my fridge any day that you open it up:

I am alway stocked! I have a container full of bars to grab and go, and always a box in the back just in case I run out! Can you imagine how sad I would be?   You totally don’t have to put them in the fridge, but in the summertime I always prefer them a bit chilled.    My favorite regular LUNA flavors are Chocolate Dipped Coconut, Peanut Honey Pretzel (I’ve made friends now addicted to this) and get ready.. Carrot Cake! It totally tastes like Carrot Cake too, you will love it!  I love them so much that once in Target I got down on the ground, practically on  my stomach as the Carrot Cake bars were on the lowest shelf and rooted my hands around trying to find if there was any left in stock while people walked down the aisle asking me if I was ok. I didn’t look ok. I looked crazed.  I needed my Carrot Cake LUNA Bars!


And if we’re talking delicious, the Chocolate Dipped Coconut bars taste just like Samoa Girl Scout Cookies.  I’m not lying to you, I would never lie about such a  serious subject! These bars are perfect for a quick breakfast in the morning, just grab and eat!

My other favorite are LUNA Protein Bars.  Here are some facts about them:

  • 12 grams of soy and whey protein, 3 grams of fiber
  • Each bar is between 170-190 calories
  • Gluten free
  • Contains the CORE 4 vitamins and minerals essential to women’s health – calcium, iron, folic acid and vitamin D
  • Low glygemic
  • LUNA Protein bars come in 5 delicious flavors: Chocolate, Chocolate Cherry Almond, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Cookie Dough and Mint Chocolate Chip
  • Available for $1.39/bar at natural food stores nationwide and at lunabar.com 

My favorite? The Cookie Dough! No the Chocolate Peanut Butter! No the Mint Chocolate Chip!  My, oh my, I love them all!

Whenever I’m on the go, I always have a Protein bar in my bookbag.  I always carry a book bag by the way.  There’s never books in it though, just a change purse that constantly spills out coins (including non US coins that I never remove from a trip), chapstick that always loses the cap and so many reusable grocery bags you wouldn’t know what to do.   Enough about my messy book bag, back to the Protein bars, I always have them for a pick me up which I often need in the afternoon when out in the city.  


They are great while waiting for a taxi cab to stop for you.


They are great while waiting in never ending lines at Target.  Shopping wears me out!


They are great for a lonely elevator ride up. 


They are perfect for a Sunday walk.


Look at that Cookie Dough! YUM!

Can you tell I’m slightly obsessed?

Also how cool is this?  LUNA launched the “Feed Your Strength…At Work!” contest earlier this year and selected two winners – 4Moms and Yurbuds – to receive a LUNA-fied vending machine and nutrition counseling sessions from LUNA’s in-house nutrition team. Both were selected based on their submission that showed what they were doing as a company to stay happy and healthy in the workplace.  Can you imagine having a LUNA vending machine at your workplace? I’d get to work early for that!

 The “Feed Your Strength…at Work” contest is part of LUNA Bar’s larger “Feed Your Strength” initiative, which launched earlier this year and encourages women to share how they empower themselves in their daily lives. The initiative kicked off with a webisode series called “Debunking the Diet,” which tackles common diet myths and provides women with sound, relatable nutrition advice. The webisodes can be viewed on the LUNA YouTube page.

So what I’m saying is you aren’t already in love with LUNA Bars, I hope this post makes you go try them because they really are a favorite of mine.
