    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

    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

    Default 'naked' bars

    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.

    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....

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!)

    Nákd bars are half price in Millets at the moment: 60p! I bought a few as I'm going travelling on Sat and thought they might be good for the journey/when I get there and I'm starving and confused. Yet to try one though...

    They are quite expensive in H&Bs, i think 1.09.
    Tesco do them for 89p. I am pretty bored with them now so dont buy them.
    Havent seen the banana one though, i might start buying them again if i can get my hands on some of those.

    Does anyone know if there are any bars similar to nakd and trek, but cheaper? i've found them online (www.trekbaruk.com), and for a mixed case of 36 of the smaller versions of the normal bars, it's 22. I love them for breakfast, but i just don't know if i can afford to spend that much on food, it seems crazy!!

    Ooh this thread just caught my eye cus I tried my first nakd bar today :]. Bought it from H&B while I was out and about. It was one of the Apple Pie ones but was a smaller size - 30g - so it was a good little snack. I was v impressed... I thought it was yummy .

    so i think i'm gonna give this 'make your own energy bars' thing a go. where do you think i should start? i've checked out the packets of nakd bars, and the ingredients seem to consist mainly of dates, oats, various nuts, raisins and then your flavour. do you think anything needs soaking first before i whizz it up in the blender?

    Sorry JC, I have no idea... but good luck and let us know how your bar making goes. I wouldn't mind giving it a try myself.

    Ooh, yesterday I tried the coco loco flavour bar. Mmmmmmmmm tis amazing.

    If you're looking for similar vegan bars in the UK, Wiggle are the cheapest I have found for Clif and Torq bars in bulk.
    There's an extra 10% discount if you spend over 50 in one go.

    Crikey where do you shop? I usually pay a quid nine for one. I've looked in the suma catalogue and I got it wrong they're RRP is about 98p.

    wow. i read that as 9 quid. that really would be one expensive bar

    though they aren't naked bars..ootw often have the cocoa trek nars..i think..each time i've been in they're like half price...so something like 48p or something. i like em better than the naked ones i do.

    Nakd bars come in two different sizes. Maybe Ames buys the small ones and you buy the large ones. It would be quite an astronomical price difference otherwise .
