I only recently tried those, and was very impressed too. Think I had the berry one. Will look out for the cocoa. Quite expensive tho.

They're 88p in Tescos, haven't found them in either Holland and Barrett, or my local health food store though which is a shame :(

Boots in Brighton sell them, but you might not want to shop in Boots... they cost 1.35 in there too :eek:

i thought they were nice at first but they're too sweet. that's one of the things that puts me off raw food, everything's so sweet, even the vegetables :confused:

hi guys,
i've just eaten this AMAZING raw food bar! they're new by some group called 'Naked' - they do a cocoa one and a berry one. i had the cocoa one which was SUBLIME...it tasted like cadburys fruit and nut used to! if you see them, i recommend them...they're totally raw and completely vegan. happy veganising, tri :)

god I love these bars!!! I don't find them too sweet...maybe the berry one is a bit but I love them anyway...think berry is my fave but cocoa is also really nice, havent had the apple one that much. Had a funny experience with these actually a few months back...was walking along eating the cocoa one and this drunk guy comes up to me and asks me if he can try some of what i'm eating! i told him he probably wouldnt like it cos well he might have been expecting it to be a chocolate bar or something but anyway he liked it! lol random pointless story.

:eek: that's really cheap!! my local holland and barrett does them, as well as the local healthfood shop, but they cost more than that - like 1.60 or something. might need to head to tescos now....:rolleyes:

They're less than a pound in Sainsburys too.

The Trek bars by the same company are similar but slightly less sweet in my opinion. I tend to prefer them. They're not raw, though.

Both sorts are great to have in your pocket for any time you need a healthy energy boost. I usually have some knocking about the place.

What heart-rendering disappointment... I was thinking I I'd stumbled across a thread promoting a bar where vegans can socialise and drink in the nude.

Oh well. Next time I'm in Tescos I shall shell out my 88p... these nutty items of confectionery will however be tainted with the bitter taste of disillusion.

lol...you could always set up such a thread...I'm sure there's plenty of people on here who'd be interested ;)

Me too Veganavenger!!!! Orange-powered....do you think that York is the place to start up a place like this? It's definitely a bit nippy here, especially if you have to sit by the door..LOL

hahaha...not really sure York is the best place, firstly its freezing up here as well!! also its quite a small city full of middle class well to do people who might not really like the idea very much. Then again, there's also a fairly large student population (which I'm part of), who are probably more open minded about such things?

One of the things about these "treats" is beyond my comprehension:
How come they claim to be "raw" and the sell by date is 02-2008? O_o
Surely if it's raw it should go off in a week or so, shouldnt it?

I don't think so - dried fruit keeps for ages, but it's technically counted "raw" because it hasn't been heated, I think. Also, the sugar content is high, which is a natural preservative, and they're all aeseptically sealed as well.

I really like the apple version of the Nakd bar, and the peanut butter Trek.

Heehee, I just stumbled across this post of yours, and it really made my day! I like your sense of humour!

i was watching ray mears wild food the other day (i like the veggies he cooked, had to grimmace at the dead animal parts, fortunately they werent too many, but i digress...) and he collected hawthorn berries, juiced them and let the mush set in a bowl. it then gets dried out in sunlight and cut into slices. he pulled some out his pocket and said it was 3 years old, still tasted good, and proceeded to eat some. not the finest example, but it shows you don't need loads of preservatives to make long term snacks:D

I quite like the cherry and apple pie ones but found the cocoa one absolutely disgusting.

I wonder how many calories they contain? They seem really filling to me and I could never eat more than one in a sitting (and that's saying something!)

the bery ones are 337 calories per 100 grams. i dont know how big the bars are. http://www.naturalbalancefoods.co.uk/PRODUCTS_NAKD.html i havent tried any yet, only seen them in the camping stores in hull. i guess they are a better snack then chocolate, choccies never fill me up...just make me sick :S

They are 99p in my local wholefood shop, it has taken some training but i can now happily eat a whole bar in one go.
