Welcome to Day #10 of Chocolate and Cherries Theme Week.
Today's Choc Cherry Collagen Ball was made in Australia for Health Lab (Melbourne, Australia).
This ball had a soft, relatively moist chew and was full of balanced, natural-tasting flavors.*
The first ingredient was dates. And too much date can sometimes create a saturated fruit, sweet acidity that can be too much. However, pumpkin seeds, collagen (marine) protein, and nuts (almonds and cashews) helped balance the acidity from dates, cherries and cacao in an unexpectedly satisfying way.
A chocolate with added protein and a little fat—and less (or no) sugar—often gives us this satisfied feeling. And this gluten-free ball contained 7.3 mg of protein and contained no added sugar (thank you!).
Ingredients: Dates, pumpkin seeds, hydrolyzed marine collagen (fish); sour cherries, organic coconut, almonds, cashew nuts, organic raw cacao, organic coconut oil, natural "choc" flavor, sea salt.
