Attention to Detail

Yesterday, while in the grocery store, I decided to buy some protein bars to eat for my mid-afternoon or mid-morning snacks (instead of the Little Debbie cakes that our admins provide). So I stood there looking at the various brands of protein bars... but more important to me were the various flavors. I saw some that were flavored "lemon zest" and "smores" and "dulce de leche" and "chocolate peppermint stick." So I decided to buy one of each...

Well.. I just ate one (lemon zest), and as I looked at the packageing, I noticed various figures of women in various active stances... dancing stances to be exact.

I then read the following:

"The Whole Nutrition Bar for Women" (italics NOT mine)

I had no idea that Luna Bars were intended for women... and what is up with them getting all the good flavors?

For Dovie's Proverbial Record, Luna is actually a division of Clif Bar. Note the contrast of the manly Clif Rock Climber with the graceful Luna Dancer. So in the future, I will just buy the Clif Bars... even if the flavors are not as appealing. But ladies, I highly recommend the lemon zest... very tasty (for a protein bar, of course).

My favorite protein bars are Pure Protein. I've looked at a lot of different ones and they seem to have the best protein/calorie ratio. I haven't tried the strawberry or blueberry flavors (why bother when there's chocolate?) but all the other chocolatey flavors are delicious. And they often are on sale at Kroger 10 for $10.

Todd, looks like you are right on track for this year. Last year it was the concert at Verizon and the mens' restroom that wasn't. This year it's the Luna bars for women. What's next?

HAHAHA!! I feel bad for you that you feel (as would most guys) confined to only Clif bars (within the Clif/Luna family). Like with many things in life, I think most of us girls would feel free to have a Clif bar if we liked the flavor (and were happy with the aforementioned protein/calorie ratio).

Oh Todd, of course you would accidentally grab the "women's" bars. That is hysterical!!! And you know that nothing but love pours out of my heart for you!

Why did you start "approving the comments"? Makes me feel like I can't freely talk to you! You don't have to post this one though!

I started requiring approval because I didn't like getting anonymous comments. But I have a rule that I will post every comment that has a name attached to it.

I've had a Luna Bar a time or two, and I agree that they have some good flavors, and so although I'm nonplussed about buying them, I stick to the Clif Bars given a choice between them simply because they are a little bigger. I mean, it isn't like the Luna Bar has extra estrogens for women or anything...
