Alert Energy Ballz

Once again, Yum has come through giving me quite the treat from the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco. One reoccurring theme in the show was energy -- People want more of it and they want it pop-able.

Enter Alert Energy Ballz ($60 for 60 ballz per box, 2 ballz per sack). I will admit, at first I was very hesitant but after reading the ingredients (oat flour, honey, chocolate, cinnamon among other stuff) and seeing that one ball has only 38 calories, I figured they're not as bad as an energy supplement could be, so I gave it a try.

I was pleasantly surprised with the taste and I will assure you that I definitely felt a surge of energy but it was not the jittery-I-need-more type of energy. Each ball has 40 mg of caffeine from Gurana Extract (just to give you a comparison, coffee has 47-164 mg per 5 ounce serving) so it packs a natural kick.

Other good stuff in the ballz: Whey Protein, Taurine, Ginseng, B Vitamins, Vitamin C and a decent amount of dietary fiber for such a little ball. To order some online, visit FunEnergyFoods.com.

Fit's Tip: Ballz are great for a pick me up once in a while, but if you're feeling a real lack in energy then you should really re-evaluate your diet and exercise to find the problem rather than relying on a supplement.
