Want to snack on something healthier this Chinese New Year? The brainchild of Personal Trainer and Chef Duo Tom and Luke, the T&L Snackaballs aim to provide healthier snacks that are as natural and simple as possible. Using whole foods and nutrient-rich ingredients, these Snackaballs provide better sustenance to people who have a habit of snacking between meals and for those constantly on the run. 

Realising that no amount of exercise was going to outweigh a bad diet, Personal Trainer Tom created this gluten-free and refined sugar-free snack that also helps with portion control. Only high-quality, non-GMO, whole-food ingredients are used and they aspire to source organic wherever possible.

Their Snackaballs have become a fan favourite. Made with the best wholefoods - dates because of their natural sweetness and dense fibre; nuts and seeds for protein and healthy fats; cacao for antioxidants and a chocolaty note; and a smidge of natural flavours or extracts to maintain a consistent flavour profile.
