I've heard all of you guys going on and on about how great the Luna Bars are, so I bought some. I bought the Key Lime Pie, Orange Bliss, and Chocolate Peppermint, and I thought they were all gross and tasted like cardboard!

Really? I liked the ones I tried. Then again it's been a while since I had them so I can't remember what flavours I tried.

No big deal, they're just not suitable to your taste.

try clif bars. they're both made by the same company but clif bars are 70% organic while luna bars are only 12% organic. and everyone knows that organic tastes better

Luna bars are only exceeded in nastiness by clif bars, imo. But some people love both. I've had them out of necessity on long hikes and such, but it's never something I look forward to. I don't think I've ever had one within 10 miles of civilization.

Those are my three favorite flavors. Don't know what to tell you. You probably don't like vegan oatmeal chocolate chip cookies either...

The only flavor that I really like is Nutz Over Chocolate. To me, it tastes like a chocolate covered peanut butter rice krispie treat. Mmmmm. The only other one that I can stand is the chocolate peppermint flavor, although I don't think that one tastes all too great. So, no, you're definitely not crazy! I think the other flavors taste like cardboard, too!

sweet dreams is pretty rockin'

i think all the fruit ones are gross

and that nutz over chocolate tastes like rice syrup, which isnt nesessarily a bad taste...

clif bars are alright... if you have a gallon of water to drink afterwards... they feel so.. heavy

i reccomend sweet dreams... its ultra yummy

LOL. Goes to show that they're not for everyone. I like the more chocolate-oriented flavors, too, just not as much.

I really like Luna bars! But I have those mighty vegan tastebuds that eat like, beans out of the can, you know? lol.
I just can't cook...or am often too lazy to.

Well, there is the fact that I haven't been able to find vegan marshmallows...

And, as I think this thread has amply proven, everyone has different favorites, and some people can't stand 'em all. Different strokes...

I found those foul things in a store here in Australia once..... yuck. No wonder they aren't available; nobody liked them.

Of course, that could have been due to the Aussie palate, but based on opinions I have read about them from Americans, it's obvious they are just plain crap.

No wonder omnivores make fun of vegan food with junk like that out there.
