Bounce Natural Energy Balls

You may or may not remember my attempt at home made protein balls; and you may not have tried the recipe out for yourself. However if you did you’ll know that they weren’t going to win any Michelin stars any time soon, and it got me thinking where I was going wrong. During my research I came across the Bounce Balls. Now these guys seem like they know a thing or two about protein balls, so I gave them a try.

What they say

Bounce Energy Balls are a special combination of high quality proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and essential fats.

Experts agree that eating 5 or 6 smaller, healthy meals throughout the day will help to keep you energised and feel at your best.

Adding Bounce Energy Balls to your day is a great way to do just that.

As with all energy foods they make great claims about their taste and the ability to energize; and from our taste tests they hold true to their promise. Be it on a local hike, pre/post gym workout, or during a long day out in the snow on the mountains, they kept me energized and well nourished, while being tasty. Especially in the case of the Coconut & Macadamia. In fact I would prefer this to any chocolate bar you could offer me!

Varieties

Peanut Protein Ball

Packing in the highest protein count these are my go to balls for a pre/post gym workout. Great with a cup of coffee.

HIGH PROTEIN 14g

TRANS FATS 0g

GLUTEN FREE

 

 

Coconut & Macadamia Protein Ball

These were my personal favourite. As well as the coconut and macadamia, they also pack in cashews and agave syrup, and remain relatively high in protein count.

HIGH PROTEIN 9g

TRANS FATS 0g

GLUTEN FREE

 

 

Spirulina & Ginseng Ball

My least favourite in terms of taste, but they do have something we always welcome on Tryfan’s Blog, superfoods that come in the shape of ginseng and spirulina.

HIGH FIBRE 3g

TRANS FATS 0g

GLUTEN FREE

 

Almond Protein Ball

 

These were my go to balls when in need of energy on long runs or walks. As well as having a high protein count they also combine almonds with complex carbohydrates and unsaturated fats.

HIGH PROTEIN 12g

TRANS FATS 0g

GLUTEN FREE

 

Cost and availability

Holland and Barrett sell them individually at £1.79, or buy two at £2.68.  Or as usual bulk buying offers greater value, with a pack of 12 on the Bounce Balls website coming in at £17.95, or a larger pack of 40 at £59.95.

I’ve picked these up at Holland and Barrett, but according to the site they can be found at an ever expanding list of stockists, including Waitrose, Planet Organic, and at a number of gyms, cafes and juice bars.

Verdict

I have to say I’m very impressed. These balls taste great, provide you with a great source of on the go energy and protein hit, all while using natural ingredients and no fillers or added artificials. In fact i would go as far as to say these are currently my favourite pre/post workout snack. With a range of flavours to suit all, and the added USP of being spherical rather than your average bar I can only see them growing in popularity.

I’m a Welshman born and raised in the shadow of Snowdonia, and you could say the Mountains are in my blood with a name like Tryfan! I would class myself as a relative newcomer to the outdoor pursuits arena, and so my articles will be my attempt to chronicle my adventures, hopefully learning as I go and giving those that are in a similar boat an insight / forum to share and learn.
