Nakd Salted Caramel Bars Review
Veganuary rolls on, and with it the many and varied new Meat, Dairy etc Free product launches. One in particular that had to go straight into my basket when I spotted them in Sainsbury's were these New Nakd Salted Caramel Bars. I do love Nakd, and have done for years now, from their Nibbles Range to the Posh Bits and all the various Limited editions like Carrot Cake, Lemon Drizzle, Blueberry Muffin and so on. It seems tradition for them to bring out a new flavour every year and at last it's the trendy Salted Caramel! They've done this before in the Nibbles range, but never in bar form so I was pretty excited.
These cost £1.99 for a 4 pack in Sainsbury's and are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. There's also a new Walnut and Coffee variety - but more on that later! The ingredients are pretty simple like all Nakd bars: dates, raisins, cashews, peanuts, Cornish sea salt and a hint of natural flavourings.
I'm glad to say that these live up to everything they're hyped to be; they taste natural and have somehow nailed the Salted Caramel flavour with only real ingredients. How?!
Opening the wrapper the bar had a super strong salted caramel aroma, so much so I thought it had to be artificial. But taking a bite everything tastes very natural, it's super sweet, chewy and moist with the caramel and sea salt flavours mingling together to create a moreish combination. I find dates are actually sweeter than regular sugar for me so just one bar of this was enough - as delicious as it was I didn't want more, it felt very filling.
Overall then, this is another big success from Nakd - I tend to love every flavour they do but this is definitely a highlight! It's one I will be buying again, but I do hope it doesn't replace the Lemon or Carrot Cake flavours as they're both pretty fantastic too.
8.5 out of 10.
