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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
