Even though healthy eating habits and diets are becoming more and more popular, healthy snacks are still a rarity in the Maldives. Luckily, this just may be about to change with the introduction of The Guilt Free Bombs; a snack which screams “wholesome” and was created with the health-conscious community in mind.
This sweet start-up is the brainchild of Dhaha Abdulla, and like many of us she too wanted something healthier to snack on, but didn’t have any luck finding a good alternative. Having tracked her calorie intake, Dhaha realized that she needed to cut back on snacks, and this meant that she had to give up the sweet desserts that she loved so much.
Initially she wanted to find something which was sugar-free but still tasted good, so that she would not have to go back to the regular snacks. After a ton of research, Dhaha decided that she had to go a step further and thus, the energy balls which we now know as guilt free bombs were created.
As the name itself suggests, The Guilt Free Bombs are free from unhealthy ingredients like refined sugars and preservatives. Plus these snacks are also free from allergens such as dairy, eggs and gluten, as Dhaha wanted it to be something that everyone (including those with food sensitivities) could enjoy.
The energy balls come in a variety of flavors, and you could really say that there’s something for everyone since they all have delicious ingredients like chocolate, fruits and nuts. Some popular ones are Beetroot Bliss and Mango Delight, while Choco Nut is Dhaha’s favorite.
Well, we decided to try one of the most popular flavors (Salted Caramel) and we must say that it met our expectations; it was tasty, filling and best of all, guilt free! And we’re not the only ones who think so; the product has been receiving a lot of support and positive feedback from the public. Less than a month into the business, two new varieties have already been introduced and there’s more in store!
