Occasionally, there are products that I receive that I really want to try, but can’t. This recently happened with the “Luna Rica Salted Caramel Nut Bar” I received in my Fall 2018 FabFitFun box. This product was in the box because it was a sponsor product. Due to my moderate nut allergy, I was unable to try it out. If I eat nuts, I get sick feeling and I get a rash. So, instead of throwing this product in the trash and having it go to waste, I had my at home testers step in for me to review this product. I am of course talking about my husband and my daughter.

The verdict was split. My husband who typically loves these kind of bars, did NOT like this bar. He said that the texture was nice and liked how they infused the cashew butter into the middle of the bar. Ultimately though, the flavor was not there and it was overall very bland to the point he didn’t want anymore. He feels like if they could dial-up the flavor and really bring out that salted caramel and other flavors, that this bar has the potential to be a good snack bar. However, as is, he would not eat it again, nor purchase it. My daughter on the other hand liked the bar. She did agree with my husband that the salted caramel flavor was not really there. She did however love the texture and really liked the cashew butter in the middle. She said she would eat these bars if I started buying them. Again, though she wishes the bar would have more of that Salted Caramel taste they advertise. So ultimately, I think the verdict is this bar is neither good, nor bad. I think the common opinion is that LUNA missed the mark with the Salted Caramel flavor, but could easily fix that by adding more of that flavor to the bar. Also, common opinion is that it’s a nice texture. Personally, after listening to the opinions of my husband and daughter, I don’t think I would currently purchase these bars.
