Review of Nakd carrot cake bars

Snack lovers rejoice, here’s my review of the new limited edition Nakd Carrot Cake raw fruit and nut wholefood bars. Straight off, I have to say that these little snack bars are easily some of the best things that Nakd have ever made, and I’m already pretty fond of most of the things they make.

For some reason, Nakd have decided to make them a limited edition flavour, which is baffling to me. Surely they’ve taste tested them and done a bit of consumer research around them? These are fab, so I’m recommending that you pick up a few before the shops go out of stock with them again – supply hasn’t been meeting the demand.

If you haven’t had a Nakd bar before, they’re made from smooshed up fruit and nuts, and maybe a few spices and other natural flavourings, depending upon the variety. They don’t taste raw, or wholefoody or in any way worthy, they’re just a nice sensibly-portioned snack that hits the spot when you feel the nibbles coming on. The lack of colouring and refined sugars is a bonus if you’re trying to be vaguely healthy as well.

So, on to the carrot cake variety. It has a lighter texture than usual, almost cakey, with little bits of carrot and walnut in there for a bit of chewy fun. The flavour is pretty spot on to real carrot cake too, with lots of cinnamon and walnut, and a nice cake-like sweetness from the dates in it. In short, it’s a great product and it’s really nice with a cup of tea or coffee mid morning, or as a mini dessert as part of a packet lunch or picnic.

They’re also gluten free, dairy free, and suitable for vegetarians and vegans, if any of these things are important to you.

I love them! They keep for about 12 months according to the date on the side of the packaging, so I’d suggest stocking up on a few of these little beauties while they’re available. Let’s hope the manufacturers come to their senses in the meantime and make them a permanent fixture on their production line.

They’re going in and out of stock at the main supermarkets (argh!). You can currently buy single 35g bars for 73p each at ASDA, or get them in packs of four for £2.79 at Tesco. If the worst comes to the worst, you can also buy them in bulk directly from the people who make them.

  1. Hi Penny,

    I would like to know when are you giong to do a Tenner Week?
    I have exceeded my budget for this month, therefore I am doing the Tenner Week for the next following 2 weeks until the end of the month to keep my budget right.
    Let us know the program for September ? Are you doing a Jump Start ?
    Love, Pat

  2. Hi Patricia! Sorry to hear about the budget, and good luck with your double Tenner Week. Please let us know how you get on with it, and if you have any new ideas or discoveries you’d like to share. I always love hearing about what people get up to with their Tenner Weeks 🙂

    Yes, we will be doing something here on the site during September, once everyone’s back from their summer holidays. It’s going to have a loose theme of ‘back to school’ (for grown ups), and Week 3 is going to be a Tenner Week if you’d like to join in with that.

  3. Dear Penny,

    For the moment everything is going smoothly, because I have a garden and I have a lot of greens to eat + lots of fruits. I have some leftover home-made sterilized cans of food from last year harvest. I have started Monday and no expenses for the moment. I do have loyalty points at the foodstore if needed. So it should be ok. Yes I will do the Tenner Week with you on September.
    Love, Pat,

    1. Hi Pat, sounds like you’re off to a good start. Hope you’re doing well!

      P xx
