OK! Before I begin – I have to make a disclaimer and say that I didn’t actually try this. Instead, I was granted the honour of documenting what happened one fateful lunchtime when my friend Charles decided to forgo his usual coffee.

After bounding off in the direction of the coffee cart, we were surprised when Charles came back with this little shot glass. “swheat!” I’m guessing it is supposed to be pronounced like “sweet!” – a far more palatable name than what we all unfortunately first read it as: “sweat”.

The shot glass is divided into two halves. The label says that “swheat!” is made of:

Green side: re-hydrated wheatgrass juice 66%, banana puree, guava puree, apple concentrate, passionfruit juice, spirulina 165mg, green tea 125mg

Orange side – orange juice, apple puree, mango puree, apple juice, root extracts (ginger 60mg, ginseng 20mg), beta-carotene, vitamin C.

In swheat’s support, it sounds like they did a lot to make the taste as nice as possible by adding all that fruit. Besides the wheatgrass, it sounds pretty yummy! And the two compartment-shot glass is a great idea.

But being an ex-Boost Juice girl myself (oh the stories I could tell) – I know a lot about selling wheatgrass juice. And the number one thing I know is that it’s an extremely acquired taste. The people who love it really LOVE it. We had people at Boost who came every day for their morning wheatgrass. But if you’re having it for the first time…

I bit my tongue, smiled, and got the camera ready.



Well… if it tastes like that it must be good for you right! 😉

Thanks to Charles for letting me take photos 😉 Best wishes to him and his lovely fiance as they get ready for their wedding in a few weeks.
