Recent fails

As you are reading this, I am on my way to Indianapolis for practice and qualifying for the Allstate 400 at the Brickyard (which is a NASCAR race, if you didn’t know)! Can’t wait to share what I’m sure will be a crazy weekend with you all when I get back.

I like to try a lot of new things and products for the blog and I have noticed that most of my reviews tend to be positive, which even I am getting tired of reading, haha. So I thought I would share with you a couple of things I tried this week that were complete FAILS!

First up…chunk light tuna on cucumber slices.


It sounded like a good idea. It even looked good. But after a few bites, I just couldn’t stand it anymore! I think the flavors just clashed or perhaps my cucumber was old? I ate the rest of the tuna and other veggies I brought as a side but tossed the cuc slices. Ew!

Next, another not-so-amazing product.


I just had a feeling that without chocolate coating or any other sort of “masking” that this product would taste terrible to me. And I was right. But I gave it a good 2 (tiny) bite shot.


Yuck! Right into the trash can it went. I hate to waste stuff but I just could not force it y’all 😦

Let me just note that these are my reviews and opinions only. I know all of us vary in our tastes and preferences and you may absolutely love these bars and other Amazing Grass products. That is why it is important to try things for yourself. I’m glad I did and now I know what not to get again 🙂

Happy Weekend!

  1. I wasn’t a big fan of the Amazing Grass bar either – it had a weird smell. I like their amazing meal and superfood products though!

    On the cukes and tuna – I’ve had that problem where I just don’t really enjoy it! I wish I did but instead I have to eat tuna on sandwiches or with crackers. I can also do carrot “chips”.

  2. I am not really a Cucumber fan, me no likey lol

  3. I’ve never tried Amazing Grass products (are they even available in Canada?), but I have tried the Vega brand of green bars and they pretty much went directly in the trash. Personally, I love a Lara or Clif bar, but these just wouldn’t cut it for me. I’ll have a Green Monster to get some greens in, thankyouverymuch.

    Maybe if you added something else to the tuna and cucumber? Like a banana pepper or something? I haven’t had tuna in a while, but I can see your frustration!

    Hopefully you have less fails in the future!


  4. I am sorry that you did not like the Amazing Grass bars! I absolutely adore them and i can’t get enough of them! hahaha

    Let me know if you would like to give them to me! 🙂
