The sleek, shiny packaging is eye catching, and makes me feel like there's something special inside. It's basically a BIG oatmeal raisin cookie, with visible rolled oats, and pumpkin seeds which give a pleasurable contrasting texture.
One of the Badass Power Cookie's biggest asset is that it's packed with nutrient-rich, spirulina, a blue-green algae, dried and ground into a powder. The spirulina gives the cookie a green tint however, so don't be freaked out. You're vegan, remember? You love green stuff! Plus, you want that spirulina in there! Among it's long list of health benefits, it provides 3x more protein than beef, and in one serving, you get more phytochemicals than 5 servings of fruits and veggies.
I know what you're thinking, "but spirulina tastes like death..if it died twice," well, the makers of the Badass Power Cookie (EverYoung Natural Foods), do a terrific job at making this cookie taste like, well...a cookie...a very good cookie. It's soft and moist, and also quite satiating. A go-to meal when I have to run out the door, but still want to eat something packed with quality fuel to get me through to lunch, or through a workout.
