Sneakz Vegan Protein Powder Review

Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Sneakz has a new product available! Introducing the new Vegan Protein Powder! Sneakz products are aimed towards the little picky eaters in your life. The ones who push their vegetable off of their dish or feeds them to the dog. It's time to change that, moms and dads! Sneakz's mission is to help provide a happy, healthy life for families and their little ones. And, I'd say that they are doing just that!

Sneakz Protein Powder is a nutrient rich protein powder that is packed with 14 grams of protein, probiotics and 10 essential amino acids. Each serving contains 1/2 serving of daily vegetables. The protein powders contains an organic veggie blend of  pea protein, carrot, cauliflower, beet and sweet potato. Other ingredients include: Organic cane sugar, Organic flavors, Citric acid, Bacillus coagulans GBI-30 6086. Sneakz Vegan Protein Powders are organic, non-GMO and gluten-free. They do not contain any carrageenan, antibiotics, artificial ingredients, artificial flavors or colors, sweeteners or synthetic hormones. Sneakz Protein Powders come in 3 different flavors: Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate.

My Thoughts

Sneakz does a great job at "sneaking" vegetables into their products. I cannot tell, nor can my kids tell, that there are vegetables in this protein powder. If you're anything like me, I am always so worried that my kids aren't getting enough vegetables in their diets. With Sneakz in their diet, I worry less. Knowing that they are getting at least some vegetables daily. My kiddos got to try the strawberry flavor and they loved it! I added the protein powder into their smoothies as well as mixed the powder with just milk. The really liked it both ways. I enjoy drinking a shake with some Sneakz, too! It's really good! Sneakz are a much healthier alternative to flavored milks. They contain less sugar and are much healthier. We also love their Milkshakes! Read my review HERE.

Redd Superfood Energy Bars Review


Welcome to A Sampling Bee! Today, I share with you superfood energy bars from Redd! Alden, the founder, started his business out of his dorm room after realizing that his meal plan wasn't cutting it. He had burned through his meal plan within the first few weeks of the semester. It was then that he realized that eating healthy foods helps us mentally and physically. So, he found his way to a local health food store. He didn't have a lot of money, so he went to the bulk food section and mixed a bunch of inexpensive ingredients into a bulk bag. Alden started carrying his new "energy bar-ish" thing to class. And, that’s how the predecessor to Redd was born. Fast forward to June of 2014, Alden released his first product: Chocolate Brownie by Redd!

Redd Superfood Energy Bars are made with 9-10 grams of clean protein from pumpkin seeds. They contain over 35 milligrams of natural caffeine from maca and yerba mate. Each bar contains 11 superfoods: chia, quinoa, acai, mangosteen, goji, cacao, yerba mate, pumpkin seed, maca, schizandra and dark chocolate. Each bar also contains 23 vitamins and minerals. Redd Superfood Energy Bars provide 2-3 hours of positive energy. All of their bars are manufactured in Oregon.

Redd Superfood Energy Bars come in five energy-boosting flavors: Oatmeal, Mint Chocolate, Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter.

Top: Chocolate, Oatmeal, Mint Chocolate, Peanut Butter.

 My Thoughts

Redd Bars are amazing! I love how they're chewy, all natural, full of deliciousness and full of flavor. My favorite flavor is the Mint Chocolate. The mint chocolate flavor tastes just like a peppermint patty. These bars are loaded with pumpkin seeds, dates, chia seeds, chocolate chips, maca, antioxidant and vitamins and minerals. Redd Bars are make a great snack and they are great for breakfast. They're great for travel, hiking and family adventures. Redd Bars give me enough energy to make it through my day. Great bars that my whole family enjoys! Yummy, energizing and healthy! I recommend!
