Nakd Coffee & Walnut Bars Review

After reviewing the delicious Salted Caramel Nakd bars, I was overjoyed to find that there was another new variety in their range - Coffee and Walnut! I love my coffee so this wasn't a want, it was a need, and special thanks to Nakd Foods I now have a whole box of them! They're certainly keeping me powered through these long, cold February days..

Made with a mixture of  dates, raisins, walnuts, almonds, cashews, coconut and coffee, these are an interesting one for sure. They used to make a Caffe Mocha bar (not sure if they still do), but this flavour is more focused on the coffee rather than cocoa.

Opening the wrapper, it has an earthy aroma and a distinct whiff of coffee. It tastes nice enough, with a pleasant, earthy, nutty texture and the coffee flavour neither too strong nor weak, but somehow it doesn't work and I can't put my finger on why. Maybe the walnuts are just the wrong type of nut to go with it, maybe the addition of coconut in the ingredients dried it out a bit...I'm really not sure. It's not bad but it's not one I would go for when there's the other flavours in the range instead.

Still, that's not to discourage anyone from trying these - they might be more to your tastes than mine! I'll still be happily munching my way through them, but perhaps not quite delighting in them the same way I would with the Salted Caramel flavour (which is really enhanced by the peanuts in it!).

Thanks ever so much to Nakd for sending me these - I will always be excited to try your new flavours, and always appreciate your work as a company!

7 out of 10.

  1. the mocha ones were much better, altho this was still ok - all the cocoa ones are better than the others, IMO - although the plain cocoa ones i always find a bit odd.

    not as good as my friends coffee and walnut cake lol
