We buy on average about 10 a week, at 89p each (tesco). Would happily buy by the box if it made it cheaper, but not seen anywhere online that works out cheaper than tesco.

in the tesco i shop at, it costs 88p. not that a penny really makes a difference, it's just strange that they have different prices in different stores. oh, and in case anyone was interested, animal aid are selling mixed berry trek bars for 25p each because they're a couple weeks out of date. i just bought 10 :D

well i tried. i used dates, sultanas, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts, apple juice, mixed berries and oats. i got the taste quite similar, but the texture was awful. i had to eat it with a spoon :rolleyes:

Did you add the apple juice to the mixture whilst it was being made? Also how much did you use?

I'd personally soak the fruit in the juice overnight, then thoroughly drain it all to remove excess moisture. THEN grind up the dates to a puree.

yeah, i added it whilst making. not much though, probably about 100ml at the most. i like your way better though, i'll try that next time.

I think I'd rather pay the extra than set foot in that retched hell hole. Maybe I just order a whole box from Suma, wonder how long they'd last :satisfied:

Yeah not just the fact that they bully suppliers to lower prices, sell live turtles in their chinese supermarkets and want friggin' world domination, their like the illuminati of supermarkets. And the one is Swansea is horrible, its so busy you just want to kill someone by the time you're finished. I bloody can't stand the place. :mad:

Has anyone else tried these yet? From Nakd who do the raw food bars - small packets of raisins which also have citric acid and "natural flavours".

The raisins available are:

Orange raisins
Cherry raisins
Lemon raisins

They are absolutely delicious, and really taste just like the fruit (eg the orange ones taste just like oranges).

Bit gimmicky, maybe, but totally raw - and for people like me who *hate* the taste of raisins, it's a perfect way to be able to eat them and enjoy them!

I've been passing them round at work and everyone is sold on them and asking me where they can buy them (39p from Sainsburys near the jellies and Ambrosia stuff).

Even better they are boldly labelled VEGAN and RAW FOOD and seem ideally suited for kids' packed lunches too :D

Are they a new product, or have I just never seen them before? I'm in love! :p

Had a mouthful of the cocoa bar today - i quite liked it! Surprisingly filling, I think a whole one would be more than enough to fill me up. Still seems quite expensive given how cheap the ingredients are.
yum!

i see Nakd bars have been repackaged, i'm trying to eat a Cocoa Loco one at the moment but i still don't like them, in fact i like them even less than i remembered! :p it's bitter and gives me heartburn, i'm not sure i can finish it. :(

Here here pinkcharge... & they also sell below cost too... although I doubt that's the case with Nakd bars.

They acheive the texture by dehydration & that's probably why they cause indigestion too. I love em personally but they do give me terrible indigestion, as do Rashers!

There is another brand by the Raw company & they do a chocolate/coconut & cinnamon/raisin version. They're moist and delicious.

Nak'd and Trek bars are only somewhat raw, the nuts (as with most are heat processed) and the oats are cooked, the apple juice is pasteurised. But hey, they are still are pretty damn healthy snack in my opinion :)

Aww, don't eat them anymore if they do that to you :)

Are these bars made by the same people who make the Naked natural juices?
