Howdy Y’all! I hope you are all having a great “spring”! (I put that in quotes because we got almost 5 inches of snow last Monday… not what I would call spring weather!)
Today I have a fun bar review for you!
Natural Balanced Foods sent me some of their Healthy Cereal Bars to try out!
“Eat Nākd bars are a great way to eat nutritious, healthy food without compromising on taste!

(I stole the above from their website)
Two things I noticed right away when I opened the box- One- So many fun flavors! I’ve been around a while and have tried a few different types of bars- and while there were some familiar looking flavors there were also some I’d never seen before like rhubarb and custard and banana crunch : )
The second thing I noticed was the size of the bars. They’re kind of small. BUT, I like that. I often find myself eating only half of a larger bar and then trying to wrap it up and save it in my desk somewhere. Normally- I find these half eaten bars three weeks later when they’re all dried up. That’s not a problem with these Nakd Bars!!
Even Minke was excited about them. (Although to be fair- she’ll try to eat anything. She ate a green bean once. Which is kind of a big deal for a cat.)
I think the “crunch” ones were definitly my favorite. They had the chewy texture of the dried fruit/nut bar but with some soy crunchies in them!
The first one I tried was the rhubarb and custard one. I love me some rhubarb, and I’d never seen a bar like this in that flavor. I think this was the one bar I was slightly disappointed with- It didn’t really taste like rhubarb? Or custard? I think that had to do with the fact that it didn’t even have rhubarb in it, just natural flavors. But check out the close up of that texture!
But OMG YOU GUYS the Berry Delight flavor was genius! The ingredients were dates, cashews, raisins, raspberries, and natural flavors. You could taste the raspberries so well- they tasted fresh! You could also feel the texture of the seeds. It was like raspberry jam in bar form. (and also chewy…) It tasted so sweet and there are no added sugars!!
Overall I enjoyed these bars, and would definitly purchase them with my own money from time to time as a treat. (Especially the berry delight ones!!)
P.S. In checking out their website- they currently have a special going on where you can get a 13 pack sampler box for only $9.99!!
General disclaimer: I received these bars for free, but all opinions are my own
