Since I’ve been looking for healthier foods which are also lower in calories, Nakd bars have become a regular staple in my food cupboard. I tend to stick with the Banana Bread, Coco Loco, Berry Cheeky and Apple Pie bars as they all have around 100 calories each.
Nakd Strawberry Crunch has a similar number of calories – 109 per 30g bar. They're also available packed four to a box.
Like the others in this range they are squidgy and chewy, but the Strawberry bars also provide a crunch - this comes from the soya crunchies.
Although they’re called Strawberry Crunch, strawberries account for just 2% of the ingredients – see below. But even though the main ingredient is dates, in common with most Nakd bars, the overall flavour is indeed strawberry.
Like all the Nakd bars, this is a snack you can feel good about eating. It's reassuring to see they're made from nothing but natural, healthy ingredients, with no added sugar. However, you will notice they contain a high level of sugars, although these are natural sugars.
Nakd bars are suitable for vegetarians, vegans, children, adults and everyone in between! That last suggestion was mine. However, if you’re a nut allergy sufferer you’ll have to forgo these bars. Sorry. Also, if you're trying to lose weight on a low GL diet, these bars probably won't be ideal due to the high levels of sugar which comes from dried fruit.
Available in health food shops, larger supermarkets and online.
