And they're healthy Samoas, to boot!
Do y'all call them Samoas? We grew up calling them Caramel Delites, but I've heard Samoas so often lately that I've started calling them that, too. Whatever - they're my favorite Girl Scout Cookie, whatever you want to call them.
And though the only Luna Bars I had tried until this point where the Luna Protein Bars (which I loooved), I was excited to try some of the 'classic' Luna Bars.
I also tried the S'mores flavor, another tried-and-true Girl Scout classic, but wasn't as pleased.
While the flavor was spot on, I had been expecting (and hoping) that the bar would have actual chunks of marshmallow and chocolate in it and was disappointed not to have that extra textural something.
This, on the other hand?
Full of chocolate chunks AND it had a marshmallow-y flavor...
It's super yummy, a huge upgrade from the chocolate chip Chewy bars of childhood lunch boxes!
I definitely get why this is the most popular Luna Bar flavor, but I still prefer the Chocolate Dipped Coconut. I double-dog-dare you to try it and NOT have it become your new fave.
But in case you don't like chocolate (you crazy person, you!) Luna has you covered:
It has a yogurt-y coating on the bottom, that was pleasantly free of that chemical-flavor some yogurt coatings have (and it was perfectly sweet, not sickeningly sweet).
The peanut butter chips were delightful, especially paired with the crunch of the peanuts! For a chocoholic like me (I almost always go for bars with chocolate in them - as much chocolate as possible, please) this was tasty enough to make me want to buy it for those (gasp) rare times that I don't want chocolate.
There was another flavor, that I really liked - just I think I'll be more in the mood for it come December (who am I kidding? November at the last, September at the earliest):
I like that the bar is chocolate, with the peppermint stick coating on the back - speckled with bit of peppermint (maybe candy cane?), yay!
It tastes very much like Christmas and I know that I'm going to be enjoying a lot of this, come Christmastime!
I so need a good stash ;)

Did you do double-dog-dares when you were younger?
