I was recently sent an assortment of Nakd Bars to try out. I had never tried or even heard of these bars before, but I am always up to try something new . . . just so long as it isn't made from seafood or insects that is. I am not keen to try those things out . . .
There has been a real surge in recent months of people wanting to eat "raw" foods. My sister is one of those people. She has a blog called Flat Belly Files and on it she share's her experiences with raw food. She sprouts her own grains, and makes "raw" cookies and the like. She also uses her dehydrator a lot. When I saw this box of bars, I thought to myself, these would be right up her alley! Too bad she lives in Canada!
Nakd Bars are a raw whole foods bar. They are gluten free, wheat free, dairy free and have no added sugars or artificial flavors. They are never baked. Made from completely natural ingredients that are ground and smooshed together to shape a handy snack and lunch box sized bar.
The mixed case contained quite a variety of flavours. There was Pecan Pie, Cocoa Delight, Cocoa Orange, Cocoa Mint, Cashew Cookie, Gingerbread and Berry Delight. The back of the bar tells you the ingredients, for example the Gingerbread one contains Dates, Almonds, Pecans, Ginger, Cloves and Cinnamon and that’s all. I did notice that most of the bars did contain nuts. There is also a calorie count as well, and not surprisingly they are all relatively low in calories and contain no fat, except that which occurs naturally in the nuts.
Soft to bite, with a lovely taste, I found my favourite ones to be a toss up between the Pecan Pie and the Gingerbread ones. You can really taste the flavours in these bars, the cocoa ones are chocolate flavoured and the nutty ones are nutty. Sweet enough to replace a chocolate snack, but much, much healthier.
They may not be much to look at . . . truly, but who says tasty always has to be pretty?
Nakd Bars are £13.99 for a box of 18 and the delivery is free, but if you order them now you'll be able to get in on a discount that they are offering at the moment of 20% which makes them only £11.99 for a box of 18, plus free delivery. Be sure to check them out!
Many thanks to Nakd for sending me over this box to try out.
Please note: Although I was sent a box of these to try out, my opinions are my own.
