A Review: Luna Bars

Luna bars ROCK! I love the “Nuts over Chocolate” one especially. It’s just so wonderful how they manage to make a vegan snack that’s delicious and healthy for you too! It’s packed with protein and other vitamins and if you have a craving for chocolate you can get it here. I have been able to find it at most convenience and grocery stores (although I can only speak for San Antonio), so that’s a plus. As I recall, it’s around 70% organic as well. An all around great buy!

A Review: Amy’s Organic Soup

The soup is vegan and organic, what more could you ask for? Well, the flavor on some is not very strong. It’s fairly quickly prepared soup, Lentil and Vegetable (I think that’s what it’s called) is my favorite so far. It’s good for a quick canned soup type lunch … sort of like an organic vegan version of Cambles. Over all I’d recommend it. I believe they also do microwave dinners that are also vegan.

(( sorry for the super short review … not much else to say ))

EDIT NOTE: By the way, I think Amy’s Organic is not ALL vegan. I think it is all vegetrian though …

A Review: Jocalate Bars (from Larabars)


I was purusing the health food isle at my local HEB (I live in San Antonio) and I came across the very same bar I had seen on Vegan Essentials just that afternoon! The two flavors I tried where Chocolate and Chocolate Coffee. Here is the info for them (I got it from Vegan Essentials’ site)

Ingredients: – Organic dates, organic almonds, organic walnuts, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic cashewsChocolate Coffee flavor – Organic dates, organic hazelnuts, organic walnuts, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic coffee

Chocolate Mint flavor – Organic dates, organic almonds, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic peppermint flavor, organic vanilla flavor

Orange Mint flavor – Organic dates, organic almonds, organic cocoa, organic cacao nibs, organic orange flavor

Nutritional information:

Servings per package – 1
Calories per serving – 190 (180 for Mint flavor)
Total fat – 9g / 1g saturated for Chocolate and Orange flavors, 8g / 1g saturated for Mint flavor, 11g / 1g saturated for Coffee flavor

Well, as some of the other reviews on Vegan Essentials said, this isn’t exactly a chocolate bar in the traditional sense. It’s more of a chocolate flavored food bar. Also, while it says “No added sugar” (which is usually a good thing) that leaved the bar slightly bitter and definitely not as sweet as you’d expect from a chocolate bar. However I did like them, especially the Coffee flavored, but just know that they aren’t exactly what you’d expect.

 

As far as I know, most or all of Larabars are vegetarian if not vegan. I have yet to try the others, but I have heard they are good …
