Amazing Grass Giveaway

The awesome people at Amazing Grass recently sent me a box 'o goodies to try out. Yum! I received several varieties of their powdered drinks, 2 kinds of bars and a perfectly sized cup for shaking up my own superfood infused drinks. Don't worry at the end of this post I'll tell you how you can win your share of my loot! The basis for most of the Amazing Grass products is Green Superfood which has a powerhouse of nutrition in each serving. You really need to click the link and check them out because I can't quite do them justice.


I'll start with powdered drinks. They have Wheat Grass, Green Superfood, Kids Superfood and Chocolate Superfood, these all mix with water, milk, soy milk or juice. They can also be added to smoothies. The drink mixes are not meant to replace fruits and vegetables in your diet only supplement and round out your daily diet. 90% of Americans don't eat enough fruits and vegetables. They really pack a healthy wallop with their Green Superfood providing the antioxident power of 7 fruits and veggies.
The day we got the package we tried the Kidz Superfood drink mix and it was well received. It has a nice chocolate flavor and we mixed it 50/50 milk and water. One boy loved it, the other was not so sure but he drank some. Mom and dad loved it, too, especially knowing it had 33 different fruits and veggies, heh. The drink mixes are all organic too.

After trying the drink mix my kids were fixated on trying the Whole Food Energy Bars, I thought it was a good idea too. These may be the most health conscious bars I have ever had the pleasure of trying. Check this out, they are: raw, cold processed, alkaline, vegan, gluten free and dairy free. Add delicious to that list. The bars are so good. They come in 2 varieties Whole Food Energy Bar and Chocolate Whole Food Energy Bar. Both are were loved by my kids and I actually think I liked the regular non-chocolate covered bar a little better. It just had a really great taste. Every bar has 2/3 of a serving of green superfood in it plus tons of other healthy goodies like acai and macca. Again these are not meant to replace whole food fruits and vegetable only to supplement your diet. I have to admit this was my first run in with commercial raw food and I was totally impressed, thanks Amazing Grass!

The next day I shook up a cup of Green Superfood to enjoy while working in my garden. I was pleasantly surprised at the light and slightly sweet taste. It was easy to drink and gone before I knew it. I mixed this one with straight water. I think next I'll try it in a smoothie.

While I do have a few more drink mixes to try out and some more bars to enjoy I want to share the wealth! If you want to win your own stash o' healthy goodies here is your chance.

  6. Oh...I want this...for me, for my kids...but not for the husband. (He'd just shake his head and chuckle at me.)

    I'm so torn between the different Superfoods and the bars you already mentioned. The Pomegranate Mango Super Meal also sounds good.

    I was originally thinking, "What's up with the Alaskan entry?" but then I realized by using the store locator that I live within 3 miles of 9 stores that sell Amazing Grass products. I'm guessing that is not the case for you (or anyone in Alaska). ;)

  7. I've noticed that several bloggers receive these amazing opportunities to try new products. How do I go about trying to receive free products? Just curious...

    I recently purchased a product similar to this for more energy.

  11. Oh I would totally go with the chocolate energy bars. Little Miss has a dairy allergy, so trying to find things like that for her that she can eat is a huge challenge. She'd be thrilled!
