Yes, they are, except for the new low-carb ones and something called MoJo, I believe, that is also made by Luna.

Are there any animal products in LUNA?



No, LUNA does not contain animal products or ingredients sourced from animal products.

Odwalla bars are better--and, as far as I know 100% vegan!!

I love Odwalla bars. They are my current lunch thing. Luna bars are a little to sweet for me, and that kind of messes with my head (I have food issues). Odwalla bars are vegan, not as sweet but have awesome flavors (and are $.40 cheaper)

Luna bars taste better, IMHO, but Odwalla bars do in a pinch, even if they're owned by Coca-Cola Corporation.



I'm also a fan of Organic Food Bar Inc.'s Vegan and Omega-3 bars (http://www.organicfoodbar.com/ - original variety is not vegan, FYI, due to honey), and Lara Bars (can't find a website for them, but I found them at Whole Foods). Both bars have tiny ingredients lists, and are moist and delicious.

I'm with epski. I buy Luna by the 20-ct. case at Whole Foods, and get Odwalla at the cafe if I forget to bring a Luna to work. Lunas also say on the back that the vitamins are all sourced from non-animal sources.

Mmm--Larabars are totally the best.



I like Odwalla bars all right, but they have like 40 grams of sugar per bar. Luna bars are a little more reasonable.

The Mojo bars used to contain honey, but now all but one (Honey Roasted Peanut) are vegan. Hopefully in reformulating them, they also managed to make them not taste like ass.

I looooove Luna bars. During the school year, I eat one mid-afternoon when I get the Attack of the Munchies.



The ingredients in Luna bars are indeed vegan. However, I've read other threads here on VB talking about the associations with Luna. Apparently, Luna donates money from the sale of its products toward breast cancer research. Some of that includes testing on animals. That may bother you, or it may not as much since it's not for cosmetics or something else of that kind. I buy Luna bars anyway. I just thought you should know, since you asked.

Thanks everyone, I also e-mailed them about it and they called back and told me that they were vegan.

I like the Clif bars better than Luna. Half of one and I'm stuffed.

I've always wanted to try Luna Bars. I saw them at Kroger, I think. They were a bit expensive so I didn't buy one to try. I want to try one so bad though!

Stephanie, try Target. I've found them in some targets at $5 for a box of 6 bars!

I don't buy them anywhere else, since they are almost $2 each at my HFS and about $1.80 at the grocery store.

Wild Oats had them on sale once for a whopping 89 cents each.



How much are they at Wal-Mart?
