Here’s another one from Nakd, brought back in the suitcase from my February trip to England. It’s the Bakewell Tart bar. 

Unless you’re new here (and if you are, HI! Glad to have you around!) you’ll know I’m a bit of a Nakd fan. My Lemon Drizzle review was really more of a sales pitch on Nakd’s behalf.

I’ll let Nakd sell you on this one themselves:

We have taken the classic dessert and given it the Nakd treatment, resulting in a snack bar that’s totally tasty and good for you too!  This Bakewell Tart bar features the sweet, deep tang of dates and raisins combined with a hint of shortcrust, rounded off with a moist and nutty texture.  Sounds good right?  Well it is!  Perfect with a cup of tea, a snack between meals or for when you simply fancy a treat, grab yourself a Bakewell Tart bar and snack yourself happy! | Nakd

There are many things to love about Nakd products. This one is free from gluten, wheat and dairy. It’s cold-pressed with no added sugar or syrups. It’s 1 of your 5 a day. It’s 100% vegan. It contains Dates, Cashews, Raisins and a hint of natural flavouring. It cost me 75p.

Unless you and nuts are bitter enemies, why wouldn’t you?

The bar is dark, soft and smells like almonds. It’s got the usual pleasing smooshed together dried fruit texture of a Nakd bar, speckled with little bits of cashew nut. And… IT TASTES LIKE BAKEWELL TART. It really does. The proper kind, not the ‘topped with an inch of icing’ Mr. Kipling kind. Which are also good, but in a completely different way.

This Bakewell Tart bar has a nicely rounded frangipane marzipanny taste with a fruity underbelly. To be honest with you, I didn’t get the ‘hint of shortcrust’ mentioned in Nakd’s online description but I’m not in the slightest bit bothered. To me, the pastry is just a way to transport lovely almondy jammyness to my mouth.

It was a delicious morning treat that made me very happy to eat it. Then very sad that my cupboard is now empty of Nakd things.  I’d love to know your favourite from the Nakd range! Drop a comment below!

    This, tied with banana is probably my favourite Nakd bar, although lemon aside there isn’t a flavour of theirs I don’t enjoy!

      They are consistently excellent. Did you try a lemon one in the end? I have a ‘washing up’ flavour review of something coming next week. Thought of you as I wrote it! 😀

    I have only recently had my first Nakd bar, the Carrot Cake one and loved it. They really are so moreish. I shall explore the Bakewell Tart next as it sounds really good. 🙂

      Once you go Nakd (?) and get a little bit addicted, it’s hard to find another brand that comes close. I hope you like the Bakewell one and if you’re a fan of Lemon I’d highly recommend the Lemon Drizzle! 🙂
