Ahh. The aroma of excrement
Posted by Reviewer1268840 on Apr 01, 2016
Perhaps I got a unique stinky jar, because otherwise it is hard to imagine people rating this stuff highly. It was not so bad that I could not use it, mixed in a smoothie with a bunch of greens and fruit. but every time I dipped my spoon in to get some, it would hit me. I finally decided to throw the rest away and go back to the Hawaiian spirulina I have used before trying this.
Yaeyama much nicer

Yaeyama chlorella is SO much nicer (Jarrow brand is good). Didn't like this at all.

I love the product it mixes easily in carrot juice and does not clump. Great price.

This product might be good for you, but it's the worst tasting spirulina I've tried so far. The taste is like the smell of horsepoo. I've tried mixing with applejuice, but still the awful taste is overwhelming. The product description says there might be differences in color and smell...so maybe I just got the "bad seed". But I won't buy this product again.
Cruel taste and flavour

This might be a good product, but the smell and taste is aweful! It is not possible to drink it even if I mix it with beautiful homemade juices and smoothies. It actually smells like vomit.. Pure Planet is the best one!

Terrible, tastes like pig manure smells! Will never buy it again! Buy only Now Foods Hawaiian Spirulina!
A big disappointment
Posted by Reviewer2761534 on Jul 11, 2011
I got a jar of this after finishing a jar of Now Foods non-organic spirulina powder. Oh no, oh dear. If you've lived in the country you may know that smell in the spring time when farmers spread cow manure on fields before the growth season. Well, that's what my jar of this product smells like. And as always, aroma is equal to flavor. In this case it's really musty. I'm now trying to come up with combinations of edible things that would cover that taste as well as ever possible when mixed together, pffffttt...

Oh wow...this stuff is aweful. I tried to put it into everything I could to hide the taste. I know it is good for us, but I had to finally throw it away.
