New Tastes Coming in Energy Bars: Luna and Lara

Both my favorite brands of energy bars are coming out with new tastes this Spring. Luna Bar has updated its recipe, and Larabar will be debuting three new flavors soon. For me, and the stash of energy bars I keep in my purse and gym bag, this is exciting news.


The Luna Bar recipe revamp includes a new vitamin blend to better address women's nutritional needs. One addition is vitamin D to support calcium absorption. The flavor and texture have both been tweaked, and I feel these changes are for the better. Look for the blue leaf tag that says "new recipe" to try Lara Bar's updated flavor. You should be able to find the "new recipe" bars everywhere by mid-June. Also check out the brand new bar, White Chocolate Macadamia — I found it tasty.

You should expect to see these three new Larabar flavors in stores soon:


  • Peanut Butter and Jelly — tastes just like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, minus the crust, so my daughters love this flavor.
  • Tropical Fruit Tart — reminds me of a piña colada, but chewy with a bright refreshing flavor.
  • German Chocolate Cake Jocalat bar — tastes a bit like a brownie, but not as sweet.

Out of the three new flavors, the Tropical Fruit Tart is my favorite. Unfortunately the Jocalat bar did not remind me at all of German chocolate cake, but is was certainly chocolaty. Are you looking forward to trying these new tastes from Luna and Larabar?
