When my daughter first got me to try an Acai bowl (at Jamba Juice and Juice Stop), I remember thinking, "Wow, I imagined these tasting so much better. They look so pretty, but there's just a smoothie under all this fruit." Until we found Acai Republic (in Laguna Niguel and also this one in Tustin). This is how I always imagined they would taste!! The Acai base is thick like sorbet, yet not frozen solid. It's just right! It actually takes awhile to melt. I drove mine all the way to the beach, and it still wasn't soupy like the other places. And they always put just the right amount of granola, fruit (and coconut, my favorite) so that the last bite is always just as perfect as the first! I have tried almost all of the flavors, and I like the Real Brazilian the best. It seems to have more of the deep Acai flavor in the base, and the bananas on the top are my favorite anyway. I just have them add coconut. But the Hawaiian is good too, it just has pineapple in the base so it's not as tart.
My daughter likes the Mango and the Tahiti. Just recently we talked my 9 year old into trying one. He hates trying unusual things, but he's been watching us eat these a million times, I think he just couldn't resist. He likes them with the granola on the side, so it's just fruit and "sorbet." They will customize them however you like!
It's truly better than eating an ice cream sundae! And healthier too! I could eat these everyday! (Just a little more than having a fancy coffee drink and a little less than inferior Acai bowls at other places. Definitely worth the price!)
