These have been my recent addiction and something I’ve been carrying around allot recently as a quick pick me up! I featured these nakd fruit and nut bars in my Lunch Break Holiday post and they make for the perfect snack during the day.
Product Details: Mixed Nakd Fruit and Nut Bar Case c/o
The great thing about these is the fact these are healthy cereal bars and contain 100% natural ingredients and each bars main compound is ‘dates’, this is the basic foundation to these bars with added nuts from almonds, cashews and pecan nuts depending on the bar you choose. When it came to trying the actual bars I was really surprised about the texture and the way each one tasted, the texture was very compact with an almost honey like glaze keeping the bar together but still moist. As for taste it was definitely distinctive and you could definitely taste the nuts coming through and the natural flavouring of each bar! The taste wasn’t processed in any way and tasted very natural and clean.
Alongside the taste the main thing I noticed about these bars was the longevity of how these keep you full for longer! I normally snacked on one in the morning after breakfast or in the afternoon and it would sustain me for a good 1-3 hours afterwords, depending on the types of activities I was doing that day. I can only assume this is down to the high protein content of each bar and this comes in great for snacking on after a workout or jogging. These are great as one of your five a day and will definitely keep you going throughout the day without feeling guilty!
You’ll also be happy to know these bars don’t contain sugar or additives (something I wasn’t prepared for, this leaving the distinctive taste), so they will taste much different to what we’re normally used to on a daily basis. If your anything like me I do like to have the odd bar of chocolate or something sweet during the day but I’ve cut down massively, so these bars do help to curb sugar cravings whilst being healthy. I used to always take sugar in my tea but now I only use brown sugar in coffee and eat sugar free cereal and freshly prepared meals; the only time I come in contact with sugar now would be when eating cookies or sweets if I want to treat myself.
Clean living has always been a main priority of mine that started a good two years ago now when I completely cut fizzy drinks out of my life and unnecessary sugar intake! This is a difficult and long process, as sugar is highly addictive but I still allow room for treats now and again. I’ve seen the Nakd bars in many health food shops and picked up the oat bars, this is more of what I’m used to and enjoy the texture and flavour, but the fruit and nut bars are something I’d definitely buy again from the main website in bulk, this giving me the excuse to ration and have them last a good two weeks that amounting to one bar per day.
When you get used to how healthy these are you can’t stop eating them! I actually finished all of these bars within the space of 3-4 day’s and couldn’t stop!
What’s your thoughts on these? Have you tried the Nakd bars before?
