I was about to tell you about these fantastically cake-y and creative Persimmon Muffins I made two weeks ago, but then I found this picture. And 1) It’s Friday night, and 2) I’m tired, and 3) I haven’t written a product review in a while. I MUST warn everyone on the planted about this bar. It is inedible.
This isn’t my first “green” SuperFood bar, but it will probably be my last. These too-good-to be true products typically include ingredients such as: wheat grass, alfalfa, chlorella (which sounds like a disease), broccoli (!!!), flax, pumpkin, and peppermint. Some of them are manageable, but OH. MY. GOD. . . this one is horrible. The mint is one sad attempt to mask the stench of old vegetables. I can’t stand to waste food, but 95% of this expensive bar went into my garbage bin.
I can, however, thank this bar for my amusement now. Several weeks after recuperating from the traumatic taste-test, I can now laugh at my stupidity. Really, what was I thinking? While these bars claim to be healthy, they are just expensive sugar bombs. Amazing Grass’ “Berry Whole Food Energy Bar” has 26 grams of sugar. . . The next time I want some vegetables, I’ll buy some REAL broccoli. Nobody should waste their money on this garbage.
