Enjoy Life Chocolate Protein Bites have received a big ingredient makeover, and are now available in four chocolaty flavors. The selection includes two reformulated favorites and two brand new varieties, all vegan, gluten-free, allergy-friendly, and non-GMO project verified.
If there is one company in pursuit of perfection, it’s Enjoy Life Foods. They’re constantly looking for ways to make their snacks even tastier and accessible to even more special diet consumers. And I think they’ve achieved sweet success with the new line-up of Chocolate Protein Bites.
What Are Enjoy Life Chocolate Protein Bites?
Think of a decadent truffle colliding with wholesome protein balls, and you have Enjoy Life Chocolate Protein Bites. Each flavor has a soft, cocoa-rich center infused with top allergen-free protein. The core is robed in a thick layer of their dairy-free dark chocolate and spiked with finely chopped seeds for a little textural interest. They’re generously sized, and you get to enjoy three in a serving.
These virtuous truffles are both treat- and snack-worthy, and pack perfectly into purses or lunchboxes. I recommend them for kids and adults!
How Have the Chocolate Protein Bites Changed?
First, they swapped in sunflower seed protein for a smoother finish. The centers were a little dry and powdery before, but those days are gone. The finish is now seamless and the texture has a pleasant softness. But they still have 6 grams of protein per serving.
Second, they are now palm oil free. And I think they are a bit creamier since each bite is rich in cocoa butter instead!
The improved formula can be enjoyed in their classic Sunseed Butter and Cinnamon Spice flavors, and in their brand new Dipped Banana and Dark Raspberry flavors.
How Do Enjoy Life Chocolate Protein Bites Taste?
Well we thought they tasted pretty darn good! Each flavor is rich and chocolaty, yet they assert their own flavor identities in the soft filling.
Dark Raspberry (New!) – This variety had one of the softest fillings and it was generously spiked with dried raspberries. The fruity flavor melded perfectly with the rich cocoa backdrop, and I liked that it tasted like a treat, but wasn’t too sweet.
Dipped Banana (New!) – I thought the soft chewy core tasted just like a chocolate-covered banana infusion. This flavor was the most “fun” in our opinions.
Cinnamon Spice (Improved!) – The chocolate takes center stage in this flavor, but warm bursts of cinnamon explode onto the scene with every bite.
Sunseed Butter (Improved!) – Thanks to the added richness from the seed butter, this one was my favorite flavor. It was just a little more grown-up and had that delicious chocolate depth for a hint of indulgence.

Like all Enjoy Life products, these truffle-like bites are made free of the top allergens – dairy, eggs, gluten / wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, and shellfish. But they are also free of lupin, mustard, sulfites, and sesame.
I think many of you will love that they are pea-free, too! Unlike many brands, Enjoy Life doesn’t use pea protein. And as mentioned above, these chocolate protein bites are also palm oil-free.
