      Very helpful



      It might not look or sound that appetising, but this is a surprisingly tasty snack

      Bounce is an Australian company that produces healthy snacks that are free from wheat, gluten, dairy and GM ingredients. These are available from health food stores, Waitrose and online, and cost around £1.50.

      The Spirulina and Ginseng Ball is packed with superfoods such as spirulina, ginsing and fo-ti root, and is designed to boost energy. Spirulina is a microscopic algae full of iron, fibre, complete protein, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

      The ball itself varies in shape from relatively spherical to more flattened. The particular one I'm eating while reviewing is an oblong around 2 inches by 1 inch, and about 1/2 an inch thick. It is a dark green colour due to the spirulina and the surface is almost completely covered in pieces of almond.

      The texture of the ball is dense and chewy, a bit like a soft flapjack, with crispy rice pieces and crunchy almond. You'll also find the occaisional intact raisin. It tastes quite like marzipan and has a natural fruity sweetness. You can also taste malt, sesame and ginseng, though these are as obvious as the almond.

      I find these very satisfying to eat as a snack. They fill me up and as they're sweet are a treat while being healthier than chocolate. As a vegan the complete protein and iron are a definite bonus too. I like to have them as a pre-exercise snack and find they're good as an energy boost for my workout and don't feel heavy in my stomach.
