I saved reviewing the Rawbite Cashew Organic Fruit and Nut bar for the last. It was the least exciting sounding of the three bars I bought but it was also the one I was most sure I’d love. I adore cashew nuts. Stick ’em in Chinese food, use them as a curry thickener, smother them with tasty things and roast. They’re versatile and delicious. I felt like I might have placed too high an expectation on a snack bar. Could it live up to expectations?

As with all the others, this is a firm, densely packed bar. Like all the others, it’s organic, gluten free and dairy free.

Again we’re on minimal footing with the ingredients list. There’s only THREE things in this! Fruit 50% (dates, rasins), Nuts 50% (cashews).

This time we’ve got a slightly crumbly texture going on, despite the firmness. It’s thanks to all those little nibbles of nuts.

It’s a tasty and cashew nut flavour bar, with a light raisiny sweetness. Unlike other products from this company, I felt the raisin taste stood out a little more here. It’s not smack you in the face RAISIN or anything but if you think about it, it’s there. Not an issue for me though, I love the little dried grapes!

To be entirely honest, I’d thought it might be the case that this bar was a little one dimensional. Yes it’s cashew nuts. Yes it tastes like cashew nuts. It is as advertised… but I can’t help but feel like something is missing. With the peanut bar they added salt. I’d like to see something ‘extra’ added here too. A touch of cinnamon or a few dried cherries. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still good – I just think they could do something more with it. Oh gawd, now I’m being fussy, aren’t I?
