Luna Bars are a Classic Dairy-Free Best Seller

2

For almost every woman I know, they’ve had a Luna Bar phase or they have an ongoing Luna Bar obsession. If I were to guess why, I’d say it’s because they meet a trifecta of demands. Luna Bars are easy to find. They are readily available in grocery stores, supplement shops, convenience markets, and can be purchased from various websites. They’re also affordable. As far as energy bars go, this is one of the cheaper options, plus they go on sale often, and can be bought in bulk. And finally, they taste pretty good for the functionality. They’re chewy, crispy, and a bit candy-bar like with a thin sweet icing. And yet, they aren’t too high in sugar, and boast some fiber and protein.

Luna Bars come in Over a Dozen Dairy-Free Flavors

With so many flavors to choose from, which bars should you buy first? Everyone has a different favorite, but one flavor seems to stand out as a repeated Best Seller: LemonZest. Yes, really! It usually beats out all of the chocolaty flavors.

Other Top Sellers typically include: Blueberry Bliss, Nutz Over Chocolate, Caramel Walnut Brownie, White Chocolate Macadamia, and Chocolate Peppermint Stick. And as you might guess, their newer Lemon + Blueberry Mash-Up is gaining a strong following.

Please note that the classic line of Luna Bars is made without dairy – every flavor. BUT, their Luna Protein Bar line is made with milk protein. This post is for the classic line only.

  1. I have been a big consumer of Luna bars for at least 6 years. My first love was chocolate raspberry, which was discontinued. My second favorite was chocolate peppermint which I’ve been eating since. I recently discovered Luna, which once had many vegan options, now has “contains trace amounts of dairy” on every wrapper I’ve seen. Thumbs down.
