Luna Bar Review and Giveaway

Anyone who knows me knows that I am totally addicted to Luna Bars!  I love them!  They are a perfect pre and post workout snack.  Lauren at Luna Bars found out how much I love them and asked me to try out four of their new flavors and tell you about it.  I tried out:
Luna Chocolate Chunk:  This Luna Bar reminded me of a classic granola bar, and tasted like one too.  It had lots of yummy chocolate chips in it. 
Luna Chocolate Dipped Coconut:  If you like Mounds bars—you will love this one!  It has just the right amount of real coconut and lots of chocolate.
Luna Protein Chocolate:  My new favorite!  It tasted just like a candy bar!  I prefer the texture of the Luna Protein to the regular Luna bars.  The Luna Protein have a more candy bar texture, they are smoother and less chunky than the regular Luna bars.  The texture of most of the regular bars is more like a granola bar.  The Luna Protein Chocolate tastes great, and the extra protein is perfect for recovering from a long workout. 
Luna Protein Mint Chocolate Chip:  This bar was very similar to the Luna Protein Chocolate.  The texture is candy bar like, but with a minty after taste.

What I like about Luna Bars is that they are made for women.  They know that as women, we have different nutritional needs.  That is why they make sure every Luna Bar has calcium, folic acid, vitamin D and Iron.  Luna Bars also contain nine grams of protein and three grams of fiber.  The Luna Protein Bars have even more protein, about 12 grams per bar.  Not bad for around 180 calories each?  And at around a dollar a bar, you can’t beat it! 
The best part of my Luna review is that Lauren at Luna Bars wants one of you to try the new flavors for free!  That’s right; I am doing a Luna Bar giveaway!  To enter the giveaway, you must be a follower of this blog. Here are the ways to enter the giveaway:
