Summary:

Take a protein powder-infused snack ball, merge it with an indulgent truffle, and you might be able to imagine these treat-like, top allergen-free snacks. Both the softer center and the firmer outer layer have a pure chocolate infusion, but crushed seeds, slightly powdery protein, spices, and sometimes fruit add substantial interest. We found their uniqueness both addicting and satisfying, and I loved that they weren't made with dates or nuts.

At the beginning of the year, I shared the official release of Enjoy Life’s Proburst Bites. But now that these truffle-y snacks are readily available in stores, I’ve got a full unbiased review of each flavor for you.

Tasting Notes for Enjoy Life Proburst Bites

All of the flavors have a relatively soft middle enrobed in a somewhat thick chocolate shell. They’re also fairly balanced nutritionally with 7-8 grams sugar, 3-4 grams fiber, 6-7 grams protein, 10-12 grams fat, and 160-170 calories per serving. Think of them like a truffle meets a protein bite. They have the sweet elements of pure chocolate paired with protein powder and seeds, and no dates! And each delicious flavor is so distinct that it was impossible for us to agree on a favorite.

Chocolate Cranberry Orange

I loved the delightful orange scent that emerged when I opened this bag. However, the fruit flavors were much milder than I anticipated. They did provide a delicious chocolate snack experience, but I could only taste subtle hints of citrus with occasional cranberry bits.

Chocolate Sunseed Butter

These two-bite treats had a more rustic shape, but that added to their natural appeal. They were rich, chocolaty, sweet, and dessert-like, but with a slightly powdery snack-like finish. The sunflower seed butter provided a very familiar, fulfilling, and comforting flavor. Nonetheless, I thought these addictive bites tasted remarkably unique.

Chocolate Cinnamon Spice

At first, I thought the Sunseed Butter was my favorite of the four, but then I tasted this full-bodied flavor. The cinnamon is ever-present, and a pinch of chipotle gives the taste a good kick. Overall, it reminds me of a delicious Mexican chocolate snack.

Chocolate Mango Habanero

But this flavor gets the spiciest award! The center was a little drier and more powdery than the other varieties, but not in an off-putting way. The mango was bright and sweet, and it melded surprisingly well with the chocolate. In one bite, I tasted more bits of chewy mango with just a mild warmth. But in another, the habanero was kicking and the mango took a backseat. This was Tony’s favorite flavor.

  1. I gotta be honest, these aren’t my favorite Enjoy Life Product- I do like like the sunbutter ones, but to much chocolate tends to be a migraine trigger for me. However, I gave some to my husband and dad and they loved them! I really appreciate all your product reviews!

    • That’s a bummer Amanda. I seriously don’t blame you though – my sister has severe migraines and I always feel so badly for her when they hit. Glad they went over with the hubby okay though – no loss! 🙂

  2. I really like the rustic shapes of these bites. I bet it feels more healthy to eat something like that rather than a perfect truffle. The cinnamon kinds sounds like it would be my favourite.
