Product Review: Good Greens Bars (+ Free Sample Bars 4U)

So I'm not much of a "protein bar" fan...they usually just taste like dirt or paste - so when the folks at Good Greens sent me a big box of all their flavors - I have to admit - I wasn't so excited. 

I took them to work because I figured I wouldn't like them. Working for an ad agency - people are always missing breakfast/lunch because of meetings - so it's great to have a quick grab-n-go snack. 

It was pretty funny - there were soooo many opinions at work. My boss ate one and was instantly addicted! He literally ended up polishing off half the box. He couldn't believe the nutritional benefits and all the good stuff inside:
  • Omega 3s
  • Gluten-free
  • Antioxidants
  • Vegan
  • Organic
  • Probiotics
  • All Natural
  • Z-52 - Good Greens Superfood Powder with all sorts of good stuff - 
And most amazing:

Another coworker tried it and said it was the worst thing he'd ever tasted - so I wasn't yet convinced! 

I bumped into another coworker on her way to a conference - she mentioned that she was starving and hadn't had time to eat breakfast. I decided to offer her a bar - she emailed me this later in the day:

Hey there – fun running into you in the morning!  Since I know you do reviews, for what it’s worth, I thought I’d tell you about the “mint chocolate” bar you gave me.  Loved it!  It was the perfect amount of mint (not too minty and overwhelming) and loved the blend with chocolate –decadent.  It actually reminded me of a better, healthier version of the Kudos bars we used to have as kids.  I ate it walking into my training and wasn’t hungry until lunch time! - ML

So with good and bad reviews coming my way - I finally had to give in. I had saved myself back one bar - a chocolate coconut because I love coconut! 

And the verdict?

I'M SO GLAD I SAVED ONE!!! I actually liked it!!!!!

I'm seriously shocked - I really hate these kind of things - but these were great! It took a few bites to get into it - but once I did - I loved it! It wasn't grainy - and it had good chocolate flavor. It wasn't trying to be a candy bar either. I just really liked it.

Dammit - why did I give the rest away?!

Well - not to fret - I can get another free bar...and guess what? SO CAN YOU!!!

The folks at Good Greens are trying to get the word out - so you can get a Free sample bar online! 

Or if you trust me and just want to grab a box - head to Jungle Jim's in Fairfield or Susan's Natural World in Eastgate and grab some for yourself! Or you can buy them online from their store...

And if you're one of those folks that's tried all sorts of other bars and want to see how this stacks up? Here you go! 


  1. Thanks! Just ordered a sample for my kidlets!

  2. Thanks for the tip. I love me some free stuff.

  3. Glad to see a review of a GF protein bar that someone actually likes! All the ones I've tried have tasted like cardboard with a little chocolate on them. ;-)
