Ever hear of Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars? I never did until a recent trip to my local health food store. Like peanut butter, I can’t seem to resist anything with the word ‘coconut’ on the box. Like usual, I walk in the aisles, I peer into the freezer section and I spot the word ‘coconut’ and my eyes go ‘cha CHING’ and my brain says, “WHAT’S THAT?”

Read a little farther and seriously, these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars looked mighty promising. Given that warm weather is ahead, I’m looking for a yummy decadent ice cold coconut treat that isn’t too sweet and makes me yell ‘COCONUT!’ at the top of my lungs. I don’t have high expectations, really, I don’t. 🙂


Product Review: what are the ingredients in Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars?

Let’s take a look at the ingredients in Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars: organic coconut milk (organic coconut, water, guar gum), organic agave syrup, organic dried coconut, organic coconut extract, organic fair trade vanilla extract.

Okay, is it just me or did you see the word ‘coconut’ used more than once in that ingredient list?! I’m so excited and I haven’t even tasted these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars yet!! As it stands now, I’m highly impressed by the ingredients used for these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars. Notice also that the word ‘sugar’ doesn’t appear on this list. The only sweetness you’ll be getting in these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars will come from the organic agave syrup.


Product Review: how do Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars taste?

Check out this decadent snowy white goodness of a coconut bar. Yes, I am talking about the Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bar. Call me silly but I never expected the coconut bar to look quite this white and creamy even though I can see it on the box. I guess my previous encounters with other frozen coconut bars made me think otherwise. Silly me! Not complaining, I’m just shocked.

Take my first taste and yep, this is a home run. If you like coconut, you’ll like these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars. There is something magically sinful and delicious about these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars. They’re creamy like real coconut milk with just the slightest hint of sweetness. There are little bits of coconut with just the subtlest hint of vanilla.

I was gracious enough to let the hubby try these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars and he instantly liked them too. I believe his words were, “Oh yeah..this is the winner” give or take a few other choice words. My daughter also got in on the taste testing and needless to say, half of my Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bar went to her so it’s a good thing you get 4 bars in a box.

These Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars are not popsicles so you can’t expect that type of texture. These Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars remind me more of a coconut ice cream on a stick. They’re like a yummy coconut dessert on a stick and should be treated with due respect!


Verdict:

So far, of all the coconut frozen treats I’ve tested, these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars are by far my favourite!

Back in June 2012, I tested the Chunks O’Fruiti coconut fruit bars and found them much too sweet for my liking. They certainly have more of that popsicle feel than these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars do.

On April 30, 2013, I tested out the Natural Choice coconut fruit bars were okay and again, had more of that popsicle feel. Back then, I so badly wished for a creamier coconut bar and that is what the Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars bring to the coconut table.

When you look at the nutritional value, I know you’ll see the higher fat content but as far as I’m concerned, that fat is coming from a good source and if I treat this coconut bliss bar as a dessert, then I’ll know to enjoy it and eat it in moderation. I’d rather eat this than plow through something else that is poorly made with mediocre ingredients.

For me, these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars win in the frozen yummy coconut bar category. If you’re looking for something similar to an ice cream bar, you’ll love these Luna & Larry’s Organic Coconut Bliss Naked Coconut Bars. Thank you to the folks at Luna & Larry’s for coming up with these naked coconut bars. They are absolutely divine and give me exactly what I’ve been looking for in a frozen coconut bar. YUM YUM YUM. Actually, come to think of it, that’s all I really needed to write for this review. I could have saved myself a lot of typing!
