I first wrote about Sambazon Acai Bowls back in 2014. I wasn’t sure if those sorbet-style smoothie bowls were breakfast or dessert, but they were definitely delicious. It seems others were equally confused, because they didn’t last on the market. But they’re back, and available in a few organic, on-the-go varieties. I’m updating this post with all of the new information on Sambazon Acai Bowls, and hopefully they find the right niche this time around!
Sambazon Acai Bowls are Ready to Eat in Three Cool Flavors
Each single-serve bowl contains an acai sorbet-style base and granola topping. They’re much lighter than acai bowls you might buy at a smoothie shop, so they’re great for snacks or a portion-controlled treat. Sambazon Acai Bowls are sold frozen, and should be thawed just slightly before eating.

A terrible product
Packaging = useless
Consistency = way too runny
Taste = overly sweet and quite unpleasant
Price = hugely overpriced
Overall = disappointed, unsatisfied and slightly annoyed.
My new addiction
I eat one of these every morning. Peanut butter is my favorite, but I also love the other two flavors. I hear for 15 secs, and then add 1/2 chopped banana, the granola pack and some blueberries to them. I swear, they are the best things ever. PLUS they’re healthy for me and the environment! Thanks Sambazon!
TOO EXPENSIVE & NOT HEALTHY
I bought these bcuz I thought it would be similar to Playa Bowl. It’s nothing like it. I bought 6 too many for $5 each and the bowl had a spoonful of the blend in them. I am deeply disappointed! After reading the contents and preparation I realized that I made a huge mistake buying them. There’s no company contact information for them ‘sambazon’, why? I need my money refunded!

Really tasty but a sugar bomb
These really are delicious. I love the protein one, but I think it’d taste even better if they toned the sugar down. I love sweets but these are dessert/ice cream sweet. Not the best option for breakfast.
Tried berry bliss and Amazon superberry
Super quick and great consistency
I rarely if ever review food products but this is just too sweet for something that claims to be “healthy.” It might be healthy BUT the amount of sugar in would undo any potential benefits. 16g of sugar or 64% of the AHA recommended 25g / day for women. They need to reformulate! ASAP!
Pingback: 10 food trends you need to know about
I tried and thought the taste was too artificial compared to acai bowls I’ve had many times before, then when I saw they add coloring to one of the darkest fruits in the world, I had to ask…why? I’ve avoided their juices and other products for the added coloring also. They must be over-processing or something is wrong with their acai fruit if they need to add coloring to acai. The dark color in acai is due to all the anthocyanin antioxidants, so if the color is removed before they add coloring, then it can’t have much antioxidants left. I’d avoid as a healthy option, certainly more of a dessert. For healthy bowls, get some good frozen acai packs and blend them up w/o the additives.
Thank you SO much for your feedback on this. Since I’ve had little experience w/ acai bowls and acai puree, I didn’t realize this issue. I appreciate you commenting with your thoughts and information.
