I’m really excited to share a bit more information with you about our energy balls, which we’ve just launched! It’s been a huge project to get them ready for you, and we’ve been working so hard on all aspects of it since before Christmas last year. I can’t tell you how happy I was when I finally saw them on shelves and I cannot wait to hear what you all think. It’s really a dream come true and it’s all thanks to your support that we’ve been able to achieve this, so thank you so much for being here on this journey.
I’ve had lots of questions about our stockists, what the balls are, their ingredients and everything else in between so I thought I would run through them all for you here…
So what are the energy balls?
- They’re our all natural energy balls, based on the most popular recipe on the blog and our best selling item in the deli. As you’ve all enjoyed them so much over the last few years, I felt it would be amazing to offer them to you when you’re out and about and need a good snack, as I know that can be really hard to find!
- We have three flavours of them, and they’re all made of between four and six ingredients, with no additives, preservatives or anything else. The aim is to create a simple, natural, honest product for you.
- The cacao and almond flavour is just made of: almonds, almond butter, dates, coconut oil, cacao powder and a pinch of salt
- The hazelnut and raisin is just made of: hazelnuts, raisins, dates, cinnamon, cardamom and cacao
- The ginger and cashew is just made of: cashews, ginger, dates and oats
- They’re all 40g balls and they’re packaged in biodegradable, compostable packets
Where can I find the balls?
- We launched initially with Whole Foods in London, Cheltenham and Glasgow, as well as in our deli on Seymour Place
- From Monday the 29th August we’ll be stocked in 54 Waitrose stores across the UK, as well as online through Ocado. Then from the 21st September we will be in 281 Waitrose stores.
- We have some exciting news on other retailers, which we will announce as soon as we can. Please keep checking back for more information!
Will the products be available abroad?
- Currently our Energy Balls will only be available to buy in shops in the UK. We are looking at opportunities to sell them outside of the UK and we will keep you updated when that happens, we hope you won’t have to wait too long though!
- When our web shop opens in mid-October, we will be able to send cases Energy Balls (12 balls in a case) to anywhere in the UK and to countries within the European Union. I’ll let you know once the shop is up and running – we’re building it at the moment for you all.
