Taste Tests

I have been reading weight loss blogs for awhile now and alot of them rave about Luna Bars and the advertising of these bars are geared towards women so I thought I would give them a try. Found some at the local Walmart for .98 a piece. I know these are tooted as healthy and have alot of good stuff in them, this opinion is based soley on the TASTE factor as I see it. Others have different opinions and I get that, this is just mine: Carmel Nut Brownie--not bad, pretty good taste and no icky aftertaste, will buy again

Next one I tried was the S'mores--another not bad, it had 9 grams of protein, aftertaste not too bad, will buy again:
And the third Luna Bar I tried was Lemon Zest--HATED IT! Tasted like I was eating Lemon Pledge. I lost .98 on this one, couldn't even get past a couple of bites and the only reason I had a second bite was to make sure I hated it as bad as the first bite made me think I did:

I have also tried other products lately and here are some different ones and what I thought:

Weight Watchers Cheesecake Yogurt:  1 point--fair, it had a very fake sweet aftertaste, won't buy again:
And I have been eating Thomas Bagel Thins and can only find them at Sam's Club but ran across the new Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat Bagel Thin at Walmart and they were very good for 3 points. I will definitely be buying them again and again:
Headed into the weekend, hope everyone has a great one. It is supposed to be beautiful here so I plan on doing plenty of walking in the sunshine. I have upped my exercise and water intake hoping to make the scales move. Searching for help from anyone that has hit a plateau, I won't to get over it and move beyond it and not give up.


  1. That sounds about right. That's how I got past my plateau. That and being perfect with eating my calories.

    Also, be careful with condiments. I don't count them a lot but they can add up. Like cream in coffee, sugar in tea, margarine on sandwiches, etc.

  2. i totally agree with you on the lemon zest flavor!!! it was way too artificial and overpowering. yuck! the other flavors were all right, though.
