#FirstImpression Of Gouri’s Energy Bites – Belgian Dark Chocolate And Orange
Price and packaging – The brown paper packaging with a cute little portal like window and a rugged little string screams artisanal. The bag is recyclable. It’s a 200-gram pack that holds 20 mini-energy bites. Each energy bite is for 10 grams and provides 47 calories, which is perfect for a mid-day or evening snack. Gouri’s energy bites are expensive and are very heavy on the pocket. It is priced at Rs 550/- for a 200-gram bag.
Ingredients used – A whole lot of goodness is packed in these mini energy bites through a variety of ingredients. Ingredients include oats, Belgian dark chocolate, invert syrup, orange rind, almonds, dairy fat, raw cane sugar, jumbo oats, sesame, oat bran, and flax seeds. It has no preservatives.
Aroma and appearance- You can instantly smell the orange rind when you open the individual pack. Thin layers of dark chocolate, oats, and seeds and very much visible. The chocolate was a bit melted when we received this product due to the hot weather (which is absolutely normal). The pack mentions to store it in a cool, dry place.
Texture and taste – Chew-chew! These mini bites are chewy and delicious. The chocolate does not overpower the overall flavor of the snack. Each bite is smooth and yummy! We loved the orange rind flavor which wasn’t bitter or stale (like it becomes in a few products). The roughly chopped almonds that sprout up in between add a wonderful texture amidst all the chewiness.
We really appreciate that we could actually TASTE each ingredient individually. Be it the almonds, the flaxseeds, or the oats, each flavor and texture had its own distinct role to play to increase the overall experience of the energy bars. The only negative, if any at all, would be the pricing which was too high for us.
