I took a can out of the chiller cause I got intrigued with the term “heatgrass”. What could it be? A grass that give a hot sensation when eaten? Like a siling labuyo. The term was new to me. I consumed all the contents before I noticed the large letter “W” before the letter “h”. The word should be “wheatgrass” and not “heatgrass”. Ouch! That explained why I never felt any hot flavor.

The word “shake well” is written around the can. I shook it really well before opening. The sweet and grassy aroma was evident. I sipped. Awww! A grass! I almost threw the can away. I took another two sips and the flavor got better – the sweet taste of honey, the grassy flavor and a powdery texture. Good thing I never threw it.
I poured some to mug to the real color.
I have never seen a real wheatgrass here in Philippines so comparison is not possible.
