Dirtballs are little nuggets of health and wellness that are guaranteed to make you and your gut extremely happy 🙂 They’re perfect for an active day in the gym, a hike to the beach, or a snack break on your favorite mountaintop.
We get a lot of questions about Dirtballs and these are the most common:
What’s in Dirtballs?
Dirtballs contain ingredients inspired by a summer spent farming in the Fijian islands. Dates, coconut, and papaya make the base. Sunflower butter and Flax seeds provide protein and texture, while cinnamon and sea salt round out the amazing flavor. Those simple ingredients are all that will ever be in these delightful snacks.
What do Dirtballs taste like?
Dirtballs have a warm, sweet, spicy flavor that will transport you to the paradise that inspired them. Dates form a caramel-y base layer for the sweet papaya, rich coconut, and toasty sunflower butter. The cinnamon, and sea salt round everything out with a bit of spice and umami. This unique blend of earthy natural ingredients creates a thrilling flavor that we haven’t found anywhere else (and trust us, we’ve looked.)
Are Dirtballs Keto?
There is a lot of natural sugar in dates and papaya. This high carbohydrate content makes Dirtballs a less-than-ideal Keto snack, even though there’s some fat and protein from the sunflower and coconut butters. But if you’ve just done a tough workout and need to replenish your glycogen stores, then Dirtballs might be a good option.
Although if you’re strict about following the ketogenic diet, this is probably not the snack for you.
Are Dirtballs healthy?
Hell yeah! When we started to really dig into all of our ingredients’ health benefits, it blew our minds 🤯 You can read about that in detail here (link to health benefits).
That being said, Dirtballs are only part of a healthy diet. If you only eat Dirtballs, you will miss out on important nutrients like Vitamin D and Vitamin K
Are Dirtballs Vegan?
Unless some rogue scientists discover that papayas are sentient, Dirtballs are entirely vegan.
Do Dirtballs come in different flavors?
Nope! This is the only flavor we plan on selling for the foreseeable future. If you are craving a different flavor palate, we suggest you try Barnana Chewy Banana Bites, RX Bar Chocolate Sea Salt, or some organic peaches from your local farmers market.
Is the packaging recyclable?
Right now Dirtballs are in PLA compostable plastic cups from Planet +. We’re in the process of changing the packaging from these cups to PLA pouches so that we can ship Dirtballs anywhere in the world.
