I Review Gluten-Free Date Balls

I’m just pounding out a whole whack of Gluten-Free Food Reviews like a boss. You know, if you have a product you’d like me to review, new or existing. I’ll gladly give a 100% honest review of it. I’ll even talk about how creepy your mascot is (if you have a mascot. Sorry about your luck Nature’s Path).

Before I continue, I just realized how gross/awesome the title of this blog is. If you think this is a 50 Shades of Grey and Twilight fan fiction website, you came to the right place. Because I am sure going to start doing that… just kidding.

If you live in town, near me, then this Gluten-Free Food Review is right up your alley, but if you’re out of town then maybe you might want to sit this one out. I got my hand on these little balls called, well for lack of a better word; Balls.  Handmade, homemade, delicious little balls. When you look at them you might think they look unappealing, and if there is anything I learned from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is that looks can be deceiving.

There are four ingredients, all gluten-free; dates, almonds, cranberries and cinnamon. All natural.


I kept asking the person who made it, blogger Janine Fournier from Whole Nine Health (click HERE for her website) if there was chocolate in it, she kept telling me no. I swear there was chocolate, but then again, maybe she discovered the trick to making all natural organic chocolate by combining all these ingredients together. Even after berating her about it, she still says there is zero chocolate in these Balls.

I ate one of the GF balls to taste test, and they tasted so good, I had a bother and another and another, and just like that I had eaten all four of the Balls I was given to taste test and review. They have a great combination of chewy and sweet, my taste buds took over and forced me to eat them (which is nice because the one time I had these Balls way way back in September I was not impressed).

If you’re local to me in the Greater Toronto Area, then you can obtain Janine’s Balls from a little yoga studio just down the road from me. You can only get them there and if you crave something a little different as a snack or hell, even breakfast, you have to get yourself to Simplicity Yoga and ask for Janine’s Balls.

The only thing I wished that I had knowledge about prior to eating four snacks filled with dates is that, the next morning would be a mad dash to the washroom.

So I guess I did learn something: coffee and dates are a great way to get clean…if you know what I mean.
