Luna Protein Bar (Chocolate Peanut Butter) Review

Luna Protein Bar (Chocolate Peanut Butter)We already have quite a few reviews of Luna Bars, but I had yet to try any of the Luna Protein Bars, so I grabbed the Chocolate Peanut Butter variety the last time I was at the grocery store.

Overall, the texture was much chewier than I was expecting. It was like a tootsie roll/ taffy/ Milky Way sans caramel hybrid coated in a thin layer of chocolate that melts in your mouth, encasing the chewy nougat center. If you don't mind exercising your chompers, then you will surely enjoy this.

NUTRITION FACTS

The tried and true combo of chocolate and peanut butter prevails. Crunchy peanuts are dispersed throughout the bar, providing a welcomed textural variety of sorts. Furthermore, each bar has a few random soy rice crisps dispersed throughout the chewy nougat that provides a random speck of crunch here and there.

Each 45 gram Luna Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar provides 190 calories, 9 grams of total fat, 4 grams of saturated fat (14% and 20% of the daily value), 3 grams of fiber, 13 grams of sugars and 12 grams of protein.

This is better in taste than the Atkins Advantage Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar and ExtendBar Peanut Butter Chocolate Delight Bar. It has more protein than the Kashi GoLean Chocolate Peanut Crunchy Protein and Fiber Bar as well as the NuGo Peanut Butter Chocolate Bar , but it also more saturated fat. The all natural ingredients list reveals that the protein blend used is a mixture of soy protein isolate and whey protein concentrate. The sweetener used is organic evaporated cane juice.

I purchased this Luna Bar for $1.29 and would buy this Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor again, although I'm looking forward to trying the Chocolate Cherry Almond Bar which I also bought.
