Nakd Raw Fruit & Nut Bars

Nakd Snack Bar Blog ReviewAlthough I really do eat an insane amount of chocolate, if I were to guess my most eaten food, I'd probably say Jordans Frusli Cereal Bars in Cranberry and Apple.  Not only are they handy for eating 'on the go', they're delicious too!  The only problem with reaching for the same bar every day however, is that it can become monotonous.  Thankfully, I don't have to start rummaging through the supermarket aisles just yet though, for with perfect timing, I was sent a mixed case of wonderfully nutritious Nakd Snack Bars c/o to try by young British company, Natural Balance Foods.  Yum!

Appearances can be deceptive - what at first seemed like a box of 'Pecan Pie' Nakd bars turned out to be a delicious mixed box of ten different flavours!  Rather ingeniously, the company reuse their case boxes to make mixed cases.. look at that smiley, they know they're good eggs.  With this in mind, it's no surprise Nakd bars are produced by Natural Balance Foods, a company that pride themselves on 'increasing world happiness with yummy, healthy snacks'.

Looking inside the mixed case, there are two bars of each flavour except for Bakewell Tart (new) and Rhubarb & Custard, seeing both standing solo.  I can only presume it's to induce cravings that will see me frantically buy more from the Natural Balance Foods website at four in the morning.  Joking aside though, the Bakewell Tart version is absolutely delicious and goes a long way in resembling the real deal - not bad for a raw fruit and nut bar!

Flavours included:


Pecan Pie 

Berry Delight 

Ginger Bread 

Cocoa Mint 

Cocoa Orange 

Cocoa Delight 

Caffé Mocha 

Cashew Cookie 

Rhubarb & Custard 

Bakewell Tart


Out of the above list, I had some definite favourites; top marks go to Bakewell Tart, Pecan Pie, Berry Delight and Cocoa Delight, all of which were tasty and filling!  My least favourite was without a shadow of a doubt Cocoa Orange - if you're into very strong and zesty flavours then this one is for you!

Overall, I'm hugely impressed by these gluten, wheat and dairy free Nakd bars*.  The range of flavours is admirable, the texture of each bar is perfect for eating 'on the go' without choking in public (guilty as charged on more than one occasion) and they make a wonderful change from my usual cereal bars!

    1. I checked in store today and they're about 75p per bar - it's definitely higher number than most, although perhaps the odd Rhubarb and Custard bar here and there wouldn't hurt? ;)

  44. I am right there with you on being a chocolate lover. I was actually just thinking how much I missed a good piece of chocolate since NZ! Asia really does not have the sweets market cornered.

    Anyways, I am also a bar fan too! I really love Luna Bars, but they are so expensive (I used to ask Ryan to grab me a few from his office, but then would feel so bad eating them because essentially they were stolen property for me...), so I will have to give these bars a try and I will definitely start with the assorted box!
