You've seen me review all sorts of nutrition bars on this site, but I may have found my favorite. I stay pretty active, so a bar with protein, superfoods and a great taste is always something that appeals to me. If it happens to not be horrendous in calories also, that never hurts. Of course it's always more ideal to eat foods in their whole, natural state, but sometimes time and/or location constraints won't allow that. Enter Good Greens nutrition bars.
Here are some of the exciting facts about Good Greens nutrition bars:
- 195 calories
- 12 grams of protein
- 72% organic
- Contain enzymes, vegan DHA and superfoods like spirulina, goji berries, wheat grass, acai and more
- Increase energy, improve digestion and are low glycemic
- Come in four delicious flavors, three of which are chocolate coated!
Being that I'm not a huge fan of coconut, the first bar I tried (to get it out of the way) was the chocolate coconut. I was surprised, this didn't have enough coconut to turn me off but I still tasted it, and I actually really liked it. To get me liking something with coconut in it, it has to be really good, and these bars are.
If you're not into chocolate coated food bars, that's fine, because Good Greens has a bar for you also. The wildberry flavor is an uncoated blend of berries with the same Z52 powder blended in to give you all the nutrients and benefits that the other bars have. This bar was also really good, and great for times when you want something that is less candy bar-ish and more fruit snack-y.
If you want all the nutrients and superfoods contained in these bars but would rather have that candy bar taste, look no further than the chocolate peanut butter Good Greens bar. If you're anything like me, you know that chocolate with peanut butter is the all time best dessert flavor combination to ever be created, and these bars can really scratch that itch. Move over Reese's, there's a new choice in town, and it's healthy!
A nice balance between the fruity and candy bar tastes comes through in the chocolate rasberry flavor. Yes, it is chocolate coated, but the center is bursting with berry flavor. I don't really like chocolate and berries mixed (other than chocolate covered strawberries), but this bar is simply decadent. This flavor turned out to be my favorite of the four, which is a giant statement considering my affomentioned affinity for all things peanut butter and chocolate.
Whether you're looking for a healthier dessert or a tastier nutrition bar, I encourage you to give Good Greens a try. You won't be disappointed.
