The wonderful people at Amazing Grass sent me a big ol’ box of samples of all of their different products. The Amazing Grass products are bars and powdered mixes that are infused with antioxidants, fruits, veggies, and proteins. They have all sorts of products and I am going to review and talk about each one.
First is the kids line:
This is the chocolate powder. From the website:
“We’ve combined 33 fruits and vegetables with a healthy scoop of decaffeinated cocoa to bring a new and tasty way for kids to get the anti-oxidant power of 3 servings of fruits and vegetables in just one glass!. We’ve used a quick-drying, low temperature, nutrient-preserving method to make a fruit and vegetable powdered drink that mixes easily with water or milk to provide your child with a fast, delicious way to drink up the healthy benefits of a variety of fruits and vegetables.”
I made it for my chocolate milk loving son and … to be honest, he hated it. I just mixed it straight with milk and it was really gritty. It’s got loads of healthy stuff in it but, unfortunatly, it tasted like it did.
BUT, I snuck it into a chocolate flavored smoothie and he didn’t notice a thing! So there’s the trick to fitting some extra veggies into your kid’s diet. Don’t tell them its there and mix it with a lot of other ingredients!
A little about their bars from the website:
“In response to busier lifestyles and poor dietary habits that prevent most people from getting their daily quota of at least 9 servings of fruits and vegetables, we’re proud to introduce our new, certified Organic Green SuperFood Energy Bars. They feature a premium blend of nature’s most nourishing and delicious SuperFoods. The energy bars provide health conscious consumers with a more potent, convenient and affordable way to satisfy their hunger and deliver nutrients to their bodies the way Mother Nature intended – unprocessed, organic and delicious.
We’ve combined our best selling and alkalizing Organic Green SuperFood drink powder with antioxidant rich fruits and vegetables and nutritious organic nuts and seeds to create the an unbelievably delicious and healthy treat. Green SuperFood Energy Bars come in two flavors, uncoated and chocolate coated with cacao nibs.”
I LOVED these bars! The first ingredient is organic dates and you can really taste the sweetness from the dates. I love dates and I love these bars! I like the chocolate ones the best. The center is a kind of a cake like mixture of the fruits and veggies and nuts. I especially love almond chunks. These bars would be a great snack if you’re on the run. I love them!!!
The regular bar seemed like it had a very similar center but it just wasn’t covered in chocolate. Of course, I liked the chocolate one better.
The other products are their Superfood Powders. I liked these mixed into my smoothies/shakes. You could taste the grittiness but the flavors were good and you are getting TONS of nutrients from each little packet.
Here’s some info about the Superfood Powders from their website:
