Christmas pudding and Bakewell tart bars!

Last week I was kindly sent some new nakd bars for me to try for the blog.

2014-10-022I had already tried the Christmas Pud bar (Sainsbury’s stock them- I have found them in two so far), and although I liked it (fruit and spices are a good combo), it was not my favourite. I told Andy I thought I could taste the alcohol (he thinks I am ridiculous, but I did think that the hint of natural flavour was hinting at the alcoholic  pudding).

But, the Bakewell tart ones, well, they might be my new favourite flavour. As someone who can happily cut a slice from a block of marzipan, I am rather fond of that almond extract flavour, and this bar has it. I thought it had dried cherries in there too, but it didn’t. I mean, I could go on for ages about the wonderful natural ingredients of dates, nuts, raisins and natural flavour, and how they survive a week being squashed in the bottom of my bag, and how they are the perfect snack size etc etc. But I am sure you all know how much I love them already, so I won’t.

Anyway, I loved it so much that I ordered a case on their website (they were having 20% off, although when I checked it had changed to a multi buy offer). I also bought a mixed box of Trek and nakd crunch bars, and they included a couple of freebies.

Do you like the sound of the new bars? I am thinking of wrapping one Christmas pud bar in marzipan to make a Christmas cake bar. Good plan.

* I was sent the bars to try, but all opinions are my own.

  1. I was so excited when they announced these two new flavours. I couldn’t taste any hint of alcohol in the Xmas Pudding bars personally, but I have a terrible cold at the moment so my sense of taste is a bit off to start with. The packaging for Trek bars has been given a jazzy new makeover by the looks of it – they look amazing! I love my Nakd bars and I’m so happy to enjoy them again now that I’m not a slave to the low-carb nonsense I was following so long ago. Nakd bars are the best pre-race fuel for me and I wish I had never deviated from that.

    Oh, and wrapping one in marzipan is absolutely inspired. They need to look at marketing that idea 🙂


  2. Although I love the smell of Christmas pudding I’m not a fan of the flavour so I haven’t tried these bars, despite seeing them out and about a couple of times just recently. I love the sound of the Bakewell bars though as I could also eat marzipan by the block but the only places I have spotted them has been on blogs/Instagram! 🙁

  3. I haven’t tried the new flavours but they sond delicious. I’m a big fan of marzipan too so I’m sure I’d enjoy it. I don’t tend to buy a lot of these snack bars as at work I tend to snack on just plain nuts, but I loved the nakd “bits” bags when I had them. They were so moreish I had to count out a handful and the quickly put the bag away before I ate the lot. Love the ingredients!
