Nakd Apricot Crunch Bars Review

A few months back, Nakd launched several new editions in their bar range: Carrot Cake, Peanut Delight and these; Apricot Crunch. They've proven rather difficult for me to find, in fact I've only seen them once and that was in Waitrose!

Like all Nakd products, they are of course raw, vegan, dairy free, vegetarian, GM free and gluten free.

As well as apricots, dates and cashews, these contain soya protein "crunchies"...something I've never tried before!

Opening the wrapper, the bar certainly had a very strong apricot aroma...

But the taste was...weird. Now I like apricots but this bar just tasted odd to me, it tasted almost like it had artificial flavouring which is weird since Nakd only use natural ingredients. The protein crunchies provided some nice texture but I can't say they tasted that nice, in fact they tasted somewhat stale - why didn't they use rice crispies instead?

Overall, I really wasn't a fan of this at all, it just tasted all wrong. I can't put my finger on what it is...maybe the stale soya crunchies, or the overpowering apricot flavour. I won't be buying these again.
