Core Nutritionals Core Balls Review
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip – Are you a fan of peanut butter drop cookies? The PB Chocolate Chip Core Ball poses a dense natural peanut butter and oatmeal hybrid base with chocolate chip inclusions. The Chocolate chips provide a nice bitter complement to the peanut butter base. I would state it is a 70/30 ratio of peanut butter to chocolate. The soft chewy cookie dough consistency combined with the crunchy whey protein crisps and oatmeal make a great combination.
Fruity Cereal –Take the original oatmeal cookie dough base and throw in fruity pebble cereal. Granted I do have a sweet tooth, but this is the sleeper of the bunch. With the Core Pro congealed with whey protein crisps, honey, oatmeal, and the cereal it makes a fantastic combination. If you are a fan of fruity cereal and cookie dough this is a great spin on a healthy functional food snack.
Cinnamon Raisin Cookie – First of all Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are among my all-time favorite cookie to date. The taste and texture are exactly like you would expect from a real oatmeal raisin cookie. The soft and chewy ball provides the correct mouthfeel with the raisins for an extra kick of sweetness. The honey and cocoa butter help provide a smooth and tasty snack with a unique texture from the whey protein crisps and rolled oats.
Core Balls have a very soft texture that you can puncture with your fingers. They are very easy to eat on the go as a convenient portable protein snack. The added texture from the oatmeal, crisps, and inclusions make this a very soft and chewy protein ball. Depending on the flavor CORE has used Natural peanut butter, chocolate chips, raisins, and real fruity cereal pieces.
