Why oh why would they do this without asking me? I just ate my first Luna bar with "less sugar". I noticed the package was different but didn't think much of it. Then I took a bite and knew something was wrong. So I re-examined the package and saw they reduced the sugar. It wasn't worth it. A little sugar splurge is ok! Have you guys tried any of your favorites since they changed?

Less sugar, more fiber?



I've had them and they taste about the same...though I hadn't been eating them for very long before they made the switch...



I still enjoy S'Mores, Chocolate Pecan Pie, Nutz Over Chocolate, and Sweet Dreams...



I think the change is good



Cheers!

Maybe I just wasn't paying attention?



They don't have artificial sweetners in them though...

The only ones they have in my city is Nutz over Chocolate so that is all I have eaten. It was very noticable to me. The chocolate tastes more bitter to me now. Kind of like coffee. I don't like coffee.

Oh no! I saw these and was afraid to try them, loving Lunabars the way they were. But from you guys are saying I had good reason to be afraid. I guess I'll have to take the jump and try them myself.

I got my free small luna bar sample in the mail today!! Its the new ones with less sugar/more fiber.... and I'm gonna have to agree. It tastes a lot more fake now, and chalky. I didn't like it very much. eh.

I have now eaten my third sugar reduced luna bar. I am getting more used to them. They still aren't delicious like before but they taste less fake as I eat more. Perhaps it will be an acquired taste

I've still seen the old ones around. I'm pretty sure they're still making the traditional ones in certain flavors. I really didn't notice a difference, though. I'm a fiber freak add anything with a little more fiber sounds good to me.

Hmm..this is a reduced sugar bar in addition to the "regular" one, or a replacement product?



I saw these fruit/nut ones at Whole Foods yesterday, that looked kind of interesting/yummy, if not particularly nutritious.



I have to admit, I enjoy the Clif protein-bar ones, even with the sugar.

Don't get me wrong, I'm all about eating sugar, but I actually like the new Luna bars better than the old ones. They have a better texture that reminds me of rice crispy treats- kind of light and airy. Yummy.

I just tried the new ones in the Nutz Over Chocolate flavour and I have to say, I think they're way better than the old ones! It tasted more peanutty and less sickly-sweet.

I finally tried the new ones and I have to say I couldn't notice a difference at all. I never would have known they were different if I didn't know from here.
