Metaball: nut free
Vermont Nut Free
Vermont Nut Free Chocolates today announced it has acquired the manufacturing and distribution license for MetaBall to offer a new product line of energy snacks that are also safe for those with peanut and tree nut allergies. Made from the finest, all-natural ingredients, MetaBall is manufactured in a completely nut free environment by Vermont Nut Free under license from Beyond The Mirror, LLC.
MetaBall is designed for athletes and active individuals looking for a healthy, great tasting convenient product. The unique round shape provides portion flexibility or Portion Flex, which enables different people with different energy needs to "eat 'em as they need 'em". The fact that they are nut free opens up a new world of nutrition alternatives for those who suffer from nut allergies. Made from the finest ingredients, MetaBall is designed to deliver lasting energy, consisting of slow-burning carbohydrates, healthy fats and pure Whey Protein Isolate. MetaBall is available in tri-packs or Buy The Bucket - 24 individually-wrapped servings.
"We are thrilled to partner with the team at MetaBall to introduce the first round energy snack made specifically for those with nut allergies. They are great tasting, and will deliver lasting energy to health-conscious individuals who are looking for an all-natural alternative to the usual, sugar-laden bars," said Gail Elvidge, president of Vermont Nut Free. "As the mother of a child with peanut allergies, I know what it is like to have an active child that is looking for a quick snack to provide energy for the next soccer game or after-school activity."
Each MetaBall 3 pack has 15 grams of Protein and a 3:1 Carb to Protein ratio, offering energy going into a workout as well as aiding in lean muscle development as a post-workout nutrition alternative. The complete energy combination found in MetaBall is also great for business people that need that mid-day boost. It provides fussy eaters with a delicious way to get additional protein and complex carbs into their diets, and the built-in portion control makes it a great energy choice for everyone.
"We embarked on the laboring process of creating the perfect nut-free, high-energy food that is fun to eat, tastes great and everyone can feel good about eating. We are thrilled to introduce our MetaBall product line to an even wider audience through our licensing agreement with Vermont Nut Free Chocolates," said Neal Abramson, President of Beyond The Mirror, LLC, brand owner of MetaBall.
MetaBall comes in a variety of flavors including:
Bashin' Berry - This no-nut version of the best peanut butter and jelly sandwich you never had combines the flavors of raspberry and blueberry with the "nutty" flavors of sunflower butter and oats.
Chompin' Chocolate - This flavor is for the chocolate lovers and captures a true chocolate experience with real milk chocolate, combining flavors of chocolate, vanilla and the "nutty" taste of sunflower butter.
Mocho Loco - A coffee lover's treat, mixed with real espresso and then covered in just the right blend of creamy chocolate and espresso.
Raisin The Roof - This is an all-time favorite, developed to remind you of homemade oatmeal raisin cookies - just delicious!
