A de­li­cious, whole­food en­ergy, baked snack ball pro­duced

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

A de­li­cious and healthy pick-me-up, Zoat­ies ‘bis­cuits in a ball’ are made from all-nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents, blended into a ball and lightly baked. Cre­ated by Auck­land-based health food com­pany Alive Foods, Zoat­ies is a sis­ter prod­uct to the best­selling snack food Frooze Balls, of which Alive sell a stag­ger­ing 20 mil­lion each year to New Zealan­ders. Two years ago the own­ers of Alive Foods, Jeremy Dixon (Re­vive Cafes) and Phil Nils­son, bought out a small New Zealand muesli bar com­pany. They de­cided the prod­uct tasted good, but needed some love. The two men were well placed to pro­vide the love - and the nec­es­sary ex­per­tise. Pas­sion­ate about cre­at­ing un­pro­cessed, healthy and tasty food, they tasted, tri­alled and re­worked the oat­ies mix­ture, un­til happy. They then rolled them in the Frooze Balls ma­chine, popped them in the oven, and Zoat­ies were born! Sweet­ened with rice malt, bound with tahini and crammed full of oats for en­ergy, Zoat­ies are the per­fect re­place­ment for sug­ary bis­cuits and snacks. Zoat­ies are now avail­able in su­per­mar­kets and health food stores na­tion­wide and come in four de­li­cious flavours.
