For the past few days, I gave these new Luna fiber bars a trial run in place of my usual afternoon snack. I’m a big fan of the regular Luna bars and seem to always be on the hunt for the best fiber bars, so I was excited to check these out! Each one contains 7 grams of fiber and 110 – 120 calories.
First up, let’s tear into this chocolate raspberry!
Mmm… looks delicious!
I’m a big fan of chocolate/raspberry combinations, but I have to say, I was a little disappointed in the taste of this flavor. It has the texture that one would expect from a fiber bar and while that doesn’t bother me at all, the flavor leaves something to be desired. The chocolate exterior isn’t sweet, which is sometimes a good thing depending on my mood, but I felt that the raspberry flavor is almost completely lost. It’s not terrible, but it’s probably not one that I’ll buy again.
LUNA Fiber Chocolate Raspberry: 2.5 out of 5 (Buy this flavor)
Vanilla Blueberry! I was really excited to try this one.
The bar has the same sugar coating on the top, and something that looks like oat-y shavings on the bottom (all the flavors have this).
This one is a winner! The vanilla exterior is much more moist than the chocolate and has a really nice flavor. The blueberry filling is fresh, strong and has a great flavor – it even has big chunks of actual blueberries in it! The improved texture does a good job of hiding the fact that it’s high in fiber. I could definitely see myself buying this one again!

The third flavor I tried was Peanut Butter Strawberry. Mmm!
Peek a boo! Imma eat you!
This flavor was also very good. The outside reminded me a lot of the Vanilla Blueberry, but there were small chunks of sweet peanut butter sprinkled throughout. The strawberry filling had a good flavor without any weird after tastes. I would definitely buy this one again. My only wish is that the peanut butter flavor in the outer part was a bit stronger… then it’d be a home run! As it is, it’s still really tasty!
LUNA Fiber Peanut Butter Strawberry: 3.5 out of 5 (Buy this flavor)
Overall Impressions: Definitely worth a try, especially the Vanilla Blueberry and Strawberry Peanut Butter flavors. One major thing I appreciated was that for the 3 days that ate these bars as my afternoon snack, I didn’t experience any tummy upset, which is a real concern with fiber bars. They also did a great job of curbing the dreaded cases of Afternoon Munchies that seem to attack somewhere between lunch and dinner. I ate these a couple of hours prior to my workout and they didn’t have any adverse affects on my performance. Leave me a comment if you give these a try and tell me what you think!
