Review of Luna Tea Cakes: Vanilla Macadamia Flavor

Luna Tea Cakes: Vanilla Macadamia

Have you guys ever tried Luna Tea Cakes? Since you all are such big fans of Luna Bars I thought I'd give these a try. Although the package claims the snack is good "for mood balance," since it contains a lot of antioxidants from the Rooibos Red Tea and some omega-3s, I am more interested in how it tastes. Really, I am more interested in how my energy bar measures up nutritionally instead of psychologically.

Interested in those details too? Then

.

This tea cake tasted like a healthy cookie, chewy and sweet. I liked that whole goji berries were visible in the bar. Not that I believe all the hype about this fruit, but those berries remind me of The Inappropriate Yoga Guy that GiggleSugar introduced me to.


Serving Size 1 Tea Cake 1 Peanut Butter Cookie Luna Bar

Saturated Fat 1g 3g

Anyway, I posted the nutritional info for a regular Luna Bar as well, and as you can see there isn't a huge difference. They both tasted pretty good, but if I had a choice, I'd probably go for a regular Luna Bar instead since it has more protein and fiber, and less sodium. If I wanted to eat a healthy cookie, I'd probably just make some myself like these Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Vanilla Macadamia sounds good. I haven't seen these around my area yet, but maybe I've just been overlooking them since I didn't know about them until now. I'll have to keep any eye open, I'm intrigued!

I have seen these and though they look tasty, they just don't look like they would fill you up at all. There's not much protein or fiber, which basically makes it just like eating a slightly healthier cookie.

I tried one of the pomegranate ones a few months back... I was not a fan. I think part of it was the taste, and part of it was the texture. Maybe the vanilla ones are better?

I love the vanilla macadamia ones. The other 2 flavors are only ok.

I reallllly didn't like these. At all! I would rather just drink tea than eat one of these tea cakes. I'd also just make my own healthy cookies that still taste great (Cranberry oatmeal...mmmm!). I love the regular lemon Luna bar, though.

That's so funny because I first saw these today and I bought one of the pomegranate ones. It was ok.

i am actually kind of addicted to these.. i think they are way yummier than reg. luna bars.. but I think I just prefer the cookie texture

I was curious about these too...Fit, did it taste better than the Luna bars or was it about the same? And was it more/less/just as filling?
