As you have probably noticed, I've been plowing through all the different types of LUNA nutrition bars over the last couple of weeks, but this time I returned to the classic version to try out two flavors: the brand new Carrot Cake, and the scrumptious Peanut Honey Pretzel! I'm pretty sure that I have a problem with LUNA bars, they are soooo good!
Oh my gosh, I was so excited to try this flavor! I flippin' love carrot cake. Each bar has 180 calories, 8 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber (see full nutritional info here).
The first thing that hit me about this one was the heavenly smell - spicy and sweet. The texture is amazing, soft and moist, and the flavor balance is spot on. It's got all of the major players of a carrot cake - the cinnamon spice, walnuts, sweet raisins, and even white soy chips! The soy rice crisps help hold everything together and add a pleasant crunch, and the vanilla icing drizzle is a winner.
I gotta give this one the gold medal and a perfect score - I LOVE it!

The other flavor I tried was Peanut Honey Pretzel. There's that salty and sweet combo again, y'all know I'm powerless to that! These have 190 calories, 9 grams of protein, and 3 grams of fiber (see the full info here)
This one was also fantastic! It has a yummy vanilla yogurt base on the bottom, and each bite is nice and hearty with the peanut butter chips, big ole pretzel chunks, and soy rice crisps. The texture is what you'd expect from the classic line of LUNA bars - moist and soft.
Really there's not a lot to nitpick about this one, it was dee-lish. Okay fine, if you're going to make me nitpick, I do think that a teensy extra bit of saltiness would have bumped this one up to a perfect score. Definitely recommend.
