As a kid growing up, I was always told “Greens are Ninja Turtle food”. If we wanted to be strong and cool (or just be a ninja turtle for that matter), we had to eat our green vegetables. Oh and the fact that dessert wasn’t allowed to be eaten until the vegetables were gone probably had something to do with it too. But that’s besides the point.
And, well, I’ve eaten my fair share of green vegetables over the years and I’ve yet to see any transformation. Just saying.
But anyway, hoping to come to the green rescue is the Amazing Grass Organic GreenSuperFood Whole Food Energy Bar. According the the wrapper of the bar, it is organic, raw, vegan, gluten free, dairy and soy free, and has no sugar added.
It had a slighty fruity smell, almost like a date. The bar was very dense, but also soft to chew. The taste was pretty fruity, and surprisingly sweeter than I had expected. It reminded me sort of like a raspberry flavored fruit leather, but softer, and definitely not as sweet. It also reminded me of what the inside of a fig newton tasted like, but again, not as sweet. The tiny pieces of walnuts that were in the bar I liked, because it added a bit more flavor.
Overall, not too bad, but not my favorite. It was lackluster for me, but the nutritional facts were impressive. Chock full of awesome ingredients, such as organic dates, organic wheat grass, organic flax lignans and more. I felt as if it truly was a bar from nature, and green inspired. However, it wasn’t so good as to where I would buy it again (although I recieved this sample for free). And even though it was sugar free, I felt like I wanted to drizzle icing on it. Curse my sweet tooth. 2 1/2 stars
Have you ever watched the Ninja Turtles? Which one was your favorite? Leonardo was mine =)

They are sending me some sample as well. Considering I down artificially laden protein bars every day, the prospect of this bar excites me, if for no other reason than I want to know what exactly “organic wheat grass” tastes like.
hahah who knows, you may like it! I thought it was ok, but I prefer things sweet. Let me know what you think when you have it 🙂
I loved the TMNT but I really wanted to be April! I lived in a neighborhood of boys so it always worked out they needed a girl to be April and of course the pink ranger when they wanted to play power rangers. Wow we had some interesting entertainment as kids!
i totally considered buying this bar because it seemed so “pure” but i just couldn’t. so many cals for sooooo little protein!
I’ve had one of these bars in my pantry for awhile now. The taste is just too grassy/earthy for me but I’m curious how the chocolate flavored version is.
