Holy crap, have you tried one of these before? They're unbelievably delicious! I was hesitant to give them a try because I was worried that the peppermint was going to be too strong. It's not. They taste like dessert, nothing like a nutrition bar. Really. They are vegan! I'm going to Sprouts tomorrow to buy more.

I'm on my phone right now and can't figure out how to post a photo, so if anyone wouldn't mind, I would appreciate if someone can post one. I'll do it in the morning otherwise.

I LOVE Luna bars! I really like their new protein bars, especially the mint, peanut butter, and cookie dough varieties. The protein bars aren't vegan, however.

I tried the cookie dough one... it took me over an hour to eat because it was so bad, but I didn't want to waste it
I was disappointed. I still have the mint one.

It was chewy, lacked flavor, and was just... blah.

I went to Sprouts and bought 5 more Luna Peppermint bars

That flavor is DIVINE. They were my absolute favorite before I developed my soy allergy. Now I stare at them longingly while I pick up my Larabars a few boxes down.

I like the new Blueberry Bliss. It doesn't have that fakey-blueberry flavour that other bars *coughcough Odwalla* do. Its kinda sticky tho.

I used to like Luna bars, then I got sick of them and every time I ate one, my jaw would hurt from their chewiness. I haven't had this problem with the chocolate peppermint one.

Tried the blueberry one... I'm not a huge blueberry flavored food fan (love blueberries by themselves), but it does taste like a blueberry muffin. Not bad.

I need to grab one of these next time I'm at Sprouts. I keep seeing them, but always end up grabbing 5 Chocolate Peppermint Sticks instead.

my favorite is the peanut butter one, or the raspberry brownie one. I think I tried the peppermint one, but wasn't a fan. <3 Luna bars though
