Missfits Protein Wonderballs Review

Missfits cacao protein ballsI picked up a couple of packs of Missfits protein balls in Sainsbury's a few weeks ago. I wasn’t actually looking for protein balls, but these caught my eye because they were mini protein balls, rather than larger ones.

I purchased a pack of Cacao at 138 calories per pack and a pack of Coconut with 117 calories per bag..

Each 35g bag contains 7 mini protein balls.

I don’t usually buy snacks such as protein balls because they're so calorie dense. As I spend a lot of time at my desk, I don't have a need for a lot of energy while just sitting, tapping away at my keyboard!

Some protein balls have over 200 calories, but because the Missfits balls are minis, they have fewer calories each. The Cacao protein balls have 20 calories each and the Coconut protein balls have just 17 calories each.

I tried the Cacao protein balls first. They have an attractive shiny appearance with an earthy, chocolately aroma. I was looking forward to eating these. However, they were quite dry and slightly crumbly with an almost musty taste. I was hoping for something with a bit of moisture and chewiness, but sadly they didn’t achieve this.

The Coconut protein balls are sprinkled with a coating of shredded coconut and are much paler in appearance. While they were still a little dry, they did have a more chewy texture with a very nice coconut flavour. I would happily buy this variety again.

Also available is an Almond Butter variety with 144 calories per bag,

If you are vegan, the Coconut protein balls are suitable for you, and there is a Cacao Orange variety with just 103 calories per bag. The vegan protein balls contain vegan protein in the form of pea protein.

They are all suitable for vegetarians and have no added refined sugar.

With dates as the main ingredient, it's no surprise that they're high in sugar. The protein content is high thanks to the added whey or pea protein and they have a decent amount of fibre too which should help with satisfying hunger.

The ingredients also include healthy sunflower and pumpkin seeds.

You can find them in branches of Sainsbury’s, Ocado online, Tesco, Holland & Barrett and Amazon.
