PRODUCT REVIEW: Sari Foods' Organic Spirulina

I so wanted to love this! I am a big fan of proteins and wheys and the like, that I add to my smoothies or teas, because, honestly, I did not have a great diet as I aged, so I balance out my bad habits with adding greens and proteins that I would not normally consume or chew, to my smoothies. This Spirulina is a great concept. Really! But sadly, this was a poor product.

After cutting open the top of the bag, the odor hit me. I thought, ok, I could get used to this just like I did with valerian root, just leave the bag open a minute while you get other things ready... no, I can't, it was just too overwhelming.

Second, the 1/2 spoonful I put into my hot tea did not melt. It clumped up on the spoon like a baby koala hanging on his momma for dear life! Strangest thing I've ever seen. So, I stirred and stirred. Approximately half of it broke away and floated on top, never mixing in. The rest of it stayed firmly attached to the spoon. I had to use a paper towel to pull it off over the trashcan. Then I dumped out the ruined cup of tea and rinsed the cup out.

Third, the bag would not reclose! No matter what: starting from the end, starting from the middle, mash mash MASH! It did not matter, that zip was not going to match up and seal! So I slowly folded the top over (so as not to inhale anymore odor), and zipped it into a gallon baggie.

Unfortunately, I will not be trying this in a smoothie this week... maybe next week.

I'm so sorry to give a 'bad' review, it's my first in a very long time, but I do not think, at this point in time, that this product is a good choice. Maybe later down the road after improvements.

I suggest they rework the seal situation, and somehow incorporate something into the 'food' to make it blend into hot liquid. 

My Rating: Poor (because I can't bring myself to type an 'F'!)
