The Unintentional Vegan: 5 days of wellness

"Good Greens Bars are by far the best snack bar I’ve ever had - and they’re even raw! I have to say that I was completely surprised by these bars. Not only are they filling, but they only come in at around 190 calories each and to top it all off they each provide you with your daily servings of fruit and vegetables – all 5-9 of them!"

Examiner: Good Greens Bars

"Something happens when you have reviewed circa 547 different protein bars, energy bars, superfood bars, etc. You begin to see that they are not exactly “different” and that some companies seem to have thought, “Well, everyone is doing it, let’s just throw some ingredients together and get into the bar game.” In other words, “Yawn.”

Examiner: Nutrition bar review

"Nutrition is a key element to any triathlete’s training regiment and on race day. Often times the quest for a nutrition bar that offers all the goodness of nutrients as well as taste proves as elusive as the Holy Grail. Good Greens bars meet if not exceed that nutrition baseline and fill the flavor gap with their product line of bars, powders, and coming soon cookies."

"If you’re like me, after hours of riding the backroads and highways, you find yourself with a bit of an appetite. Generally, I keep some of the cheese and crackers with the little red stick (you know the ones that I’m talking about) and candy bars in my saddlebags for just such an occasion.

Way 2 Good Life

"My bike ride is on average 20 miles long. I can’t possibly make it through the whole way without a snack. This is the time when I can’t just have any bar – it has to be a good one. 12 grams of protein, 14 grams of sugar, 195 calories is a snack that would give me enough fuel to pedal 10 miles."

Crazy Food Dude

"In terms of taste, this tastes almost like a soft and chewy brownie with peanut butter mixed in that is dipped in chocolate and it is quite a good flavor. I guess based on the external appearance, I was expecting the interior to have more of a chocolate flavoring but it was definitely peanut butter with a hint of chocolate."

Health Kicker: Blogs about trying to live healthier

"You've seen me review all sorts of nutrition bars on this site, but I may have found my favorite.

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."

Almost Vegan Chef: A girl bites into a bar... mega-review!

"The other three flavors, though, are a different story! The Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Chocolate Coconut (shown below) taste more like candy bars than nutrition bars, with chewy, melt-in-your-mouth fillings and a light coating of chocolate on the exterior. I would buy these three varieties again in a heartbeat!"

"It’s 3pm and your tummy starts to growl, alerting you that you are hungry. It’s not really time for dinner yet but you know if you don’t eat something soon, you’ll be filling your face with anything you can reach and it might not always be the best option. I love keeping granola bars on hand for those type of hunger attacks."
