Recently I received a box full of goodies to review for Vitacost. Since the representative couldn’t tell me exactly what products I might receive, I was pleasantly surprised with my box. It was a mixed lot comprised mainly of health and beauty products and health and nutrition bars and supplements.
Today I want to share my thoughts on the bars I received and a little bit about Vitacost the company.
Vitacost.com- We take the cost out of healthy living.
All the top brands for discount vitamins, supplements, whole foods, health foods and sports nutrition online at up to 50% off other companies. Plus, they offer a flat rate shipping fee of $4.99, or free with any order of $49 or more.
They also have a refer a friend opportunity where you can earn $ 10 each referral. I signed up and would love it if you signed up using my link here.
My Product Reviews:
These bars are like a cinnamon-y rice crispy treat, only better. They are not icky sweet, and have 13 grams of protein and 140 calories. Both my daughters loved this one, so I will buy again.
I wanted to love this totally organic, healthy sounding, delicious smelling bar, but I didn’t. I just liked it.
I could taste the dates and Agave nectar more than I could pick up on the blueberries. My daughter and my husband on the other hand LOVED this bar and wanted more, so I will buy again.
This bar is made with raw and super foods, one of them being Hemp. Again I wanted to love this bar.
It looks like dark chocolate and smells like Mocha. Win-Win for me.
But, I did not like this bar at all. It is thick and dense. It leaves a vitamin taste in your mouth. And I experienced a mild case of burps in which I could taste the Hemp, or what I perceived to be the Hemp, I likened it to eating grass clippings. My family didn’t care for the taste or texture of this bar either, so we won’t buy again.
This is a huge protein bar, so you could split it. It has 28 grams of whey protein. Overall, I liked the flavor and consistency of this bar, but my husband liked it more. My kids thought it was just okay. If we bought again, it would be for keeping in the car for road trips or when hunger strikes and you can’t stop and eat.
I hope you have found these reviews helpful. I will have another Vitacost review for you soon where I will share the rest of the products included in my Vitacost box.
