Why We Love 'Em… It takes a pretty good protein bar to impress us, and Luna has done it with these bars. They taste really good -- especially that choc-PB one! -- and we appreciate the fact that they come in under 200 calories each. Plus, the combo of protein and fiber helps keep you feeling full.

Get the unsalted Whole Natural or the Lightly Salted Low Sodium. In a nutshell, we're nutty about all these options! (Okay, we'll stop with the puns...)
