Product Description

About the Brand

Betty Lou's line of innovative sugar-free snacks started when she and her family decided to stop eating products with refined sugar. When Betty Lou started looking for treats for her children to take to school, she realized how difficult it was to find treats that were not made with refined sugar--so she set about creating her own recipes. Having never created recipes before, she began to experiment, throwing in crunchy peanut butter, a bit of honey, nuts seed, and oats. Her experiments worked: Betty Lou's new snacks caught on, and today they are produced and marketed under Betty Lou's, Inc. In addition to her original "butter balls," Betty Lou's also produces granola, cookies, vegan bars, and a variety of gluten-free or dairy-free products--all made without refined sugar. Betty Lou's products make a naturally nutty snack with coffee for breakfast, or even a quick, healthy lunch. Athletes have been known to buy them for a nutritious boost of energy during training. Betty Lou's is based in Oregon.

These fun ball-shaped treats are vegan, non-GMO, and sweetened with fruit juices rather than refined sugar.

My family and my healthfood store lady all say this is one of the best of Betty Lou's Nut Butter Balls. I do not have any problems at all with the taste, in fact, it beats the heck out of the coconut ones which are extremely sweet. Yes, they look green in the middle, but we found the taste rather "clean" and refreshing...not overbearing.

You will also enjoy the "lift" in your energy level these spirulina/ginseng balls provide. Now that I know about these little guys, I am getting ready to buy TONS for Christmas gifts! We would not be without them anymore. :-)

I ordered these as a healthy snack to replace my vending machine habit. I had read some good (and not so good) reviews and bought a box.
These are fantastic...yes they are very 'green'...but then they do contain the superfood spirulina! As for the taste, it's sweet but not overly so. I'm diabetic so this was a big concern...but they don't spike my blood sugar and from reading up on the sweetening agents Fruitrim and Agave syrup this seems consistent. Apart from the sweetness they taste of almonds and a slightly sharp taste from (I guess) the spirulina. Anyway, on busy days two of these replace lunch with no feelings of hunger for a few hours. I did have the box on my desk and they seemed popular with my workmates! Fast, healthy snack which fills you up...might just replace Ramen as the perfect Geek food (I am a proud geek)! Just got my next box of 40...

If possible, I'd give Betty Lou's Spirulina Balls six stars. I had been searching for 'The Perfect Food' for years. My requirements? Portable, nutritious, natural, tasty but not too sweet. Not too big--and not too messy. Something that, if you had to pick one food to sustain you for a hiking trip or a hurricane, would keep you healthy yet taste good too. I tried snack bars, energy bars, health bars, nuts, gorps, even Ensure, you name it.

I'm sorry to admit I put off sampling these green gems after reading some reviews criticizing the color or flavor. But my curiosity finally got the best of me one day at the Natural Food Store's check-out counter. I bought one, stuck it in my pocket and forgot about it until I got the urge for a snack. Ah, the Betty Lou's Spirulina Ball--but what would it taste like?

Well, it was like Manna to me. Eureka! My search is ended. Made of almonds, fruits, grains & greens, it did not taste spirulina-y to me. But the inside sort of resembles a wad of green stuff from the underside of a lawnmower. Fortunately, it's humble appearance is deceiving--they taste good. Now I order the big jars online, they're much more economical that way.

I did try Betty Lou's Almond variety but it didn't appeal to me. Different strokes for different folks. You just have to taste things for yourself.

There are all kinds of things that I will eat for health's sake, but my husband is more taste-oriented. There are a lot of energy bars etc that he won't eat, but he loves these!

These bars, while a bit on the dry side, are a good snack for a busy individual. They are a healthy bite that pack a bunch into a small size. But again, the fat grams from the nuts are a bit much for someone trying to curb fat. Very "earthy" and not very sweet, but overall have a good flavor. These are, as I mentioned before, dryish...but they aren't very big so it's not that big of a deal really, they only last a couple of bites anyway. These are great for helping to incorporate spirulina into one's diet if you don't have spirulina powder or pills. 4 out of 5 for me because of the fat grams and the dry texture. But again, it's "health food" so if you are looking for something sweeter, this isn't going to do it for you.
