Good4U Super Bites come in 40g packetsThe Good4U Super Bites are small truffles, made mainly from dried fruit and seeds, crushed into raw little pieces. A bit like the Nakd Bits but smaller. They are 100% vegan and contain no added sugars.
They come in individual snack packs of 40g, in three varieties; Banana & Cocoa, Orange & Cocoa, and Coconut.
How Do They Taste?I must say, I’ve had a bit of mixed feedback on these from family and friends who tried them. I think maybe this comes down to some of them expecting these truffles to taste sweet, which they are not. They contain no sugar (refined or natural) nor sweetener, and hence do not taste like a sweet treat.
The small truffles do not taste very sweet...The flavour is very subtle, and some claimed that they tasted bland with one goignas far as to say that they looked and tasted like rabbit poop (don’t ask). But if you’re palate is more used to vegan or whole, unrefined foods then you may actually find these sweet enough for you.
Personally, I found they tasted ok, but I did not find them a substitute for a treat. I think they would great as an addition to your own trail mix, or as a topping for musli.
Nutritional AnalysisNutritionally, the varieties are pretty similar (the coconut contains slightly more saturated fat). Below is the coconut variety;
|per 40g serving||per 100g|
|Energy||160 kcals||401 kcals|
This provides a ratio of 11:47:43 (PRO:CHO:FAT), which makes it an ideal high energy snack for active people or during endurance activity.
ConclusionIf you like them, Good4U Super Bites will provide a nutritious, vegan snack or a useful high energy endurance fuel source for activities where fast acting energy sources may not be suitable.
But, if you’re looking for something healthy to replace your chocolate bar, then you may wish to look for something sweeter...
