AMAZING GRASS new flavors- review




Teri Jo from Amazing Grass sent 2 new flavors of the energy bars:
Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Bar
Berry Whole Food Bar


I was a huge huge fan of the chocolate peanut butter protein bar. Not only did I feel like I was putting good things into my body, but it was delicious!! I need the chocolate coating. :)

Here are the ingredients:
Organic Dates, Organic Dark Chocolate Coating (Cane Sugar, Unsweetened Chocolate, Cocoa Butter, Non-GMO Soy Lecithin, Natural Vanilla Flavor), Organic Agave Nectar, Amazing Grass Green SuperFood (Organic Wheat Grass, Organic Barley Grass, Organic Alfalfa, Organic Spirulina, Organic Spinach, Organic Chlorella, Organic Broccoli, Organic Acai, Organic Maca, Organic Carrot, Organic Beet, Raspberry, Organic Rose Hips, Pineapple, Green Tea, Organic Flax Lignans, L. Adidophilus, Alpha and Beta Amylase, Protease, Lipase, Lactase, Cellulase, Organic Peppermint), Organic Cashews, Organic Almond Butter, Organic Almonds, Organic Sunflower Seeds, Organic Dried Cranberries, Organic Cacao Nibs, Organic Pumpkin Seeds, Organic Dried Coconut and Organic Vanilla Extract. Allergy Information: Contains Almonds and Cashews

From the website:

  • 230 calorie bar
  • 9 grams of fats (healthy omegas)
  • 5 grams of protein.
  • 27 grams of sugar (2 grams is from the cane sugar)
  • 37 grams of carbohydrates


  • I can honestly say that I really liked the taste of this bar and on the days when I am in a rush and need to grab something, this was perfect! Find your local retailer here.
    I have seen Amazing Grass products at Whole Foods, and Amazon sells them as well. The Amazing Grass site sells 12 bars for $36.

    I am definitely going to pick these up for my rushed days!

    1. I think I'm gonna try the chocolate peanut butter one. I've seen Amazing Grass products in Wegman's but I never thought to try them. I thought that it would taste like a blade of grass. I love greens, but not that much :)

    5. I'll be honest, every time someone mentions "amazing grass," I think they're talking about weed. Good lord, I've been out of college for more than a decade, yet that's where my mind goes. Sheesh.
