Vegan Product Review : Bounce V - Life Ball Cashew and Peanut Flavoured

I was absolutely thrilled to learn that bounce the company who create high protein energy balls had finally created a vegan range. Their regular range has been in Holland and Barrett for a number of years but sadly they all contain milk. 

Fortunately, their new V-Life range does not! All five flavours in the range are completely vegan, gluten-free, high in protein, fibre, healthy fats and have no artificial flavourings or preservatives. 

The Australian brand has stated that each V-life ball is "a chewy mix of vegan proteins, fats and carbs. Packed with veggie protein to keep you going and feeling great." 

I bought all five flavours to test but today I tried the flavour that appealed to me the most, cashew and peanut flavour.
After thoroughly enjoying the Meridian peanut and cashew bar I thought that this ball would be right up my street. 

When I opened the packet I was surprised to see that actually, the ball was quite flat (Unlike an Deliciously Ella Ball),  the smell of it was fantastic like peanut butter fresh out the jar. 

The ball was a light brown (almost caramel) colour coated in a mixture of chopped peanuts and cashews. This coating did make it more difficult to eat as the texture is already extremely chewy due to the colossal amount of nuts.  The actual ball is lovely with the right amount of sweetness and nuttiness. Almost like eating set peanut butter! But I imagine that combined with the coating it will be far too nutty for a lot of people.
