For all you Luna Bar eaters, there's a new line of Luna's called Luna Sunrise, or something. It's a more breakfasty type Luna Bar. I went to the website, and unless I missed something, they appear to be vegan (unlike those discontinued ones --Luna Glow or something? I think they had whey). Haven't tried one yet. Has anyone had one yet?

Nope, not me. Probably won't either. :) Unless lots of people say they taste fantastic.

No, but I almost bought one in the store the other day. They looked pretty good.

Hey! Not sure about the new ones your talking about but the lemon Luna bars are really yummy!:p

I just wanted to add that the Target here sells them for like .97 a piece, if anyone is interested in wanting to try them out.

I think Lemon and the Orange ones are the only ones I haven't tried. I like them to be chocolatey--like vegan candy bars! I love S'Mores, Caramel Nut Brownie, Cookies and Cream, Iced Oatmeal Raisin.....

Ooooh! Iced Oatmeal Raisin, those sound soo good!!! I don't think I've ever seen the Cookies & Cream ones though?

Luna bars are the one thing I always try to keep in my purse in case I need a nice pick-me-up, LOVE them!!!;)

There's no way I could keep one in my purse. I'm lucky if I can get one home without eating it in the car!

I like Luna Bars but I find them way too dry. I always have to drink water with them.

Same with Clif Bars. They make me so thirsty and spike my bloodsugar so high (I get lighthead).

I like lemon Luna bars waaay better than any cliff bar I have had. Cliff bars are too pruney for me. But yeah, Luna bars are dry and sweet. I had one for the first time Saturday, I bought it Friday night specifically to take with me the next day b/c I was going out with my father and cousins and knew that food would be scarce. I don't think that I could keep one in my purse either! Even though they are too dry and sweet!

I *think* most protein bars are that way because they have so much fiber in them. I agree, I defiantely have to have a whole bottle of water each time I eat one!;)

I've had a few of the Clif bars as well, and they don't do anything to my bloodsugar (that I've noticed) but they have a chewier texture where the Luna's have a bit more crunch!:p

I think the glazed-type Luna Bars are less dry. I used to love S'Mores until I tasted the Caramel Nut Crunch (?) and others with glazes. Those are better. Oh, it'd true: they are like glorified candy-bars, but they're good and they do have a ton of vitamins and stuff.

I've never even tried any flavour of luna bar as they are always out of stock. :mad:

I've had a peanut butter cliff bar though and that was drydrydry. lol

Ok, after reading all these posts touting the great taste of these Luna bars, I went out and got three to try. And all I have to say, IMO, is: awful, awful, awful.
To me they have some sort of weird flavor in there going on that basically tastes like dried fish guts, in all honesty. I don't know how to describe it other than it being kind of fishy and mangey. Ugh.
I used to be addicted to Zone bars and those, other than the Balance Trail Mix bars, are the only ones I could deal with. They're not vegan, though, which is probably good for me since I used to eat them like they were candy bars. :rolleyes:

I've just ordered four luna bars to try, I'm just hoping they're not fishy to me as they were 1.75 each! :eek:

Sorry, not trying to put anyone off them. :o

I just don't know how to describe the taste and it's more of an after-taste. The first bite I had, I was thinking "ohh, yummy!" then the longer I had it in my mouth the more that taste came out and I was in my car and had nowhere to spit it out. I had to swallow it and I was not happy. :mad::(

I guess everyone has different likes and dislikes though. I'll try them once, if I don't like just don't eat them again. :)

What flavor did you get Limey?

I like Lemon Luna bars and others that are "glazed" as people said, but some are really dry and yucky like Nutz of Chocolate or something named simillarly.

I bought a chocolate peppermint stick and tried it yesterday and it tasted like actual dirt! :eek:

I like peanutbutter cookie, dulce de leche, cookies and cream, iced oatmeal cookie and Lemon. Lemon are my favorite and seem to be a favorite of a lot of people.

It was something chocolate-y, I know that. :o And it was a glazed one. There was no lemon ones where I got mine. I might not have picked that one up, though. I love real lemons, not lemon flavored stuff. :p

Oh I adore Luna bars! I love any of the ones with chocolate especially. :o Key lime pie is also a favorite. I just tried the peanut butter cookie and loved it.

I'm kind of interested in going to buy one to see if I can notice the "fish guts" thing. :D

Ooooooh! Key Lime? That sounds like it would be just as good as the Lemon!

I bought my first Lemon Luna Bar today. As soon as I smelled it I knew I wouldn't like it. As soon as I took a bite, I knew I was right. It was GROSS. But I paid 99 cents for it, so I ate it. YUCK.

I'm so sorry to hear that you didn't like it.:( It's very lemony, but it's one of my favs. They are definately not like candy bars & I know you posted earlier that you like the candy bar flavored ones.

I think lemons should be sour and tart. Not sweet. It's not a REAL lemon taste if it's sweet.
