As this brand continues to grow we expect they will offer even more flavor varieties to help ensure your routine stays interesting.


The texture of this product is probably the least liked aspect about it. They are very heavy and thick. This makes them difficult for people to bite into and chew. As they get a bit older they become even more difficult to bite and chew. It is exceptionally chewy. This brand has some work to do on their texture. The ones that have Chai seeds in them are said to be very grainy. There are several reports of it being grainy in general and this can make this product unusable for those of you that have sensitive pallets towards textures. Overall, this brand has some work to do to improve this area as it is a major turn off for some consumers.

Obviously, the ingredients contained in each flavor variety is going to vary. It is important to note that this brand does offer one flavor option that is Vegan-friendly. If you are looking for this you will want to go with the Superberry. It contains Dates, Sunflower Seeds, Tapioca Syrup, Cranberries, Coconut, Rice Crisps, Raisins, Rice Protein Concentrate, Acai Juice Powder, Raspberries, Natural Flavoring, Goji Berries, Sesame Seeds, and Citric Acid. The other flavor options ingredient lists look quite a bit different and while they also vary, they have the same basics. They consist of a Whey Protein Blend, Whey Crisps, Vanilla Extract, Rice Bran, Sea Salt, Guar Gum, and Vitamin E. These are both great ingredient lists and the type of things we want to see in our protein-boosting products.

The sugar contents, like the other aspects, varies depending on which flavor you choose. Here again, if you like a variety of the flavors you will be able to fit this product to your sugar consumption wishes. The Vegan option, Superberry carries the highest sugar value, with sixteen grams per serving. This is from the fruits it contains and it is not surprising that it is a bit higher. The Vanilla Almond has the least amount with only three grams of sugar per serving. These protein products do not use any artificial sweeteners.

Oddly enough, the serving size varies based on flavor. This is not common, most products like this one have the same size throughout. So, one ball is a serving regardless of flavor and they are somewhere between forty and forty-nine grams each. Forty-nine is close to the average of fifty, however, forty is quite low and may leave you still feeling hungry. The Peanut Cacao holds the highest amount weighing in at forty-nine grams per serving. Each box contains twelve balls. There is no other option for box size which will mean if you want a month's worth you will need to grab a couple boxes.

Side Effects

Products that contain Whey protein have the chance of causing you some uncomfortable side effects. We have not seen many reports of this product affecting people negatively, however, this does not mean you won't have some sort of adverse reaction. Whey proteins have been known to cause gas, bloating, nausea, upset stomach, or an increased frequency of bowel movements. These are typically minor but for some may be strong enough to make them stop using this product. The vegan option of this product has a similar list of effects as plant proteins are known for causing upset stomach and extra gas. Overall, this is a pretty small list. Most protein products are very safe and this one is. You will want to be careful if you are allergic to tree nuts as many of the options contain them and they are all made in a facility that processes them.

This product does have a few shortcomings. First, the texture has to be considered. It is certainly lacking in this category and if you are a textural eater, it may be very difficult for you to try and eat on a daily basis. There is then the fact that the weight of this product really varies which can throw some people off. When you are looking for enough food to hold you over, forty grams may simply not be enough. The sugar content of some of the options is also quite high and can be difficult to fit into your diet on a routine basis. While a minor complaint, customers don't love the fact that they don't have an option in container size. Many like to try a single product before they commit to a twelve count box.


This product is a good value. While it definitely has some areas in which it can improve, overall, customers are very satisfied with it. When it comes to the cost of it, well, that depends again on which flavor you go with. Some of them are exceptionally reasonable in terms of price. Others are going to be a bit out of reach for some bank accounts. This is especially true if you plan on eating one every day. The price brings the value down a slight bit but then, if we take the time to look at the aspects it is brought right back up.
