Adult's Good Food Packaged for a Kid's Good Sense

Pros:wonderful taste, high in nutrition, packed with greens

Cons:high price, thick consistency could be a turnoff for some

The Bottom Line: This is a great balance of flavor and nutrition in an easy-to-swallow form. In moderation it's a great addition to your diet!


I have the tastes of a child and the sense of an adult. I know rationally that I can't chow down on potato chips and candy bars without making myself sick; and that staying healthy means not only eating fewer of the really tasty things in life, it also means "acquiring" (the adult euphemism for "sucking it up") the taste of the less pleasant things that my other organs enjoy a whole lot more than my tongue does, like green foods.
I've gagged down some terrible concoctions in the name of getting more greens into me. Powders that don't dissolve, smoothies with questionable origins, and vegetables whose edibility has only been proven on paper have passed my lips, and I do my darndest to eat them like a man, knowing that they are good for me.
Bolthouse Farms Breaks Down the Age Barrier
A friend offered me a glass of Green Goodness one summer's day. I still had the grit of some dehydrated greens between my teeth, leaching bitterness into my unresisting mouth. It was not a quenching experience, for the drink is somewhat thick, but the cool, sweet taste made it go down my throat so quickly that I was asking for more before I knew what had happened.
If you've ever had trouble convincing yourself or a child to eat some spinach or another leafy green vegetable without success, this drink may do the trick. The greens are blended so thoroughly into fruit that all that comes through is a pleasant, almost addictive flavor that is slightly reminiscent of apples (the main ingredient) and not so sweet that more mature tastes would be turned off.
Not Without Its Price
The thickness of Green Goodness limits what one could drink it with, because it's not going to cleanse your palate like water or a straight fruit juice. If you strongly prefer your orange juice without pulp, you may be turned off of Green Goodness as well.
Nothing good comes cheap. There are plenty of beverages that cost less, and I wouldn't suggest that Green Goodness makes sense as the primary beverage for any family - the thickness and sweetness limit its versatility with meals and it would be cost prohibitive - but it's a very enjoyable way to add vital nutrients to young and old alike.
