Amazing Grass Kidz Super Food Wild Berry

Keeping up with my berry and fruity theme this week, I thought it would be appropriate to review a product sent to me by Amazing Grass, the Kidz Super Food Wild Berry .

One serving of this mix combines 32 fruits and vegetables that provides that antioxidant level of THREE servings of fruits & veggies. You simply mix it in water, juice, or a smoothie (it also comes in a chocolate flavor, that you can mix with milk!)

Seeing as the amazing nutrition punch this product packs, I decided to try it on a day I was feeling sluggish and just blah. I’m not one who likes to take medications , so I prefer more natural ways of helping or healing my body. I decided to just mix it with water, since I wasn’t home at the time and didn’t have access to juice (or a smoothie, for that matter). I put it in my water bottle and gave it a shake. It was green and dusty on top, and then the rest of the water was purple. I had a very curious glances my way like, “what on earth is she drinking?!?!” I’m not one to judge on color, so I took a sip. It was very, very mildly sweet- just a hint of berry flavor. It didn’t mix together perfectly, as it was still a bit piecy in the water.

I definitely reccommend using it in juice or a smoothie instead of just water, or maybe adding some stevia/sweetener if you want to use it in water. It wasn’t bad, though, taken for what it was. It’s an excellent way to boost your nutrition and fit in some powerful antioxidants. With water, I give it 3 1/2 stars based on taste, 5 for nutrition, for a total of 4 stars. It did make me feel SOO much better after- Really! My headache was gone, and I had more energy throughout the day. I think I might buy some in the future and try it in a smoothie or juice- if I do, I’ll let you know how it is!

Sharkies Organic Kids Sports Chews

Are you a runner? Or a sports enthusiast who needs quick energy? Or maybe, you just want something sweet, organic and chewy?

Well, Sharkies Organic Kids Sports Chews are the answer! These chews are USDA certified organic, gluten free, nut free, GMO free, fructose free, have no trans fat, and provide 100% of your daily needs of vitamin C. The company sent me some of their products to try, and I decided to review the Kids variety. (Sharkies also come in the “adult” variety- which are still organic fruit chews)

The Kids sports chews come in 4 flavors- the 45 gram packs of Tropical Splash, and Berry Blasters, and then the “lunchbox variety” Berry Bites & Fruit Splash.

The chews were very delicious, and the texture was right on. Not too “gummy” and not weirdly “chewy”- they were the perfect mix of the two. Think of gummy bears, but a little bit stiffer and not so sticky. I loved that they were in cute shark shapes, and came in vibrant colors like orange, yellow, and purple. They were definitely sweet (seeing as the first ingredient is cane juice/tapioca syrup or brown rice syrup), but weren’t sickly sweet or artifical tasting like some gummy products can be.

I know when I run, I cannot eat too much before hand (I’ve been blessed with a senstive stomach– thank youuuu genetics! ). I found that eating a package of these provided me with a ton of energy, and NO troubles on the tummy. I also ate a few for a quick burst of energy during my 10K run.

Overall, I give these 4 1/2 stars. Tasty and great for supplying immediate energy for races and more. I think I’ll probably eat them instead of candy gummy bears too, as a healthier, organic alternative 😉
