These tend to be cheaper on Amazon and Superfood Market...
All Nakd Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
Absolutely. Of course if you'd care to look at the ingredients you'll notice there's no refined sugar in this, they're basically just compressed fruit (mostly dates) and nuts.
I still voted it hot! It's a good deal, but posted here as there are people who have sugar issue's or parent's who might be worried about soaring sugar levels in food.
Natural sugar and refined not the same
I love these! Nice find!
No added protein. These are a slightly different proposition. Otherwise they seem pretty similar.
Definitely 16, probably good to include it in the title! Vegan too :)
Naked bars are always similar price on Amazon
Thank OP. £8.70 S&S for me.
These are actually pretty yum. And let’s face it, you can scoff anything after a session on the ‘mill.
What's the best before date on these please? Also, Asda reductions are good however they annoy me as they tend to be store specific! Wish they'd label them with reduced stickers instead! Thanks
Not national. £1.50 at my local
Hope they're in my Asda but I never find any good deals there
ohhh! I need these in my life! I wish I could find the deal in my local Asda!!! I'm so jealous!
These ones are cheap nasty and taste like petrol. Nothing like Nakd bars at all. Bought for my daughters lunch box and had to launch them in the bin straight away. Yuck. Avoid like the plague. (poo) (poo)
Really? I thought the cherry bakewell one was nice! The cookie dough is delightful :) What do you think of the Nakd cherry bakewell flavour then?
I love cherry bakewell cakes so naturally went for the cherry bakewell flavour. OMG was disgusting and so chemically tasting. However, the orange and cocoa is sublime.
I always like to go Nakd but this time I’ll have some of your nuts. Lol (lol) :o ;)
There are plenty of snack bars with less sugar - plenty of the healthier one - in fact ones with added sugar. I've got bars that have around 10g of sugar or less compared to the 16g here. So a third less. It seemed to me like you were commenting on the sugar not being added, not the total sugar content. Of course these are better than Dairy Milk, and so if you eat one of these as an alternative then you'll reduce your sugar intake. But being so high in sugar they're not really for reducing sugar intake. Just healthier ingredients. People shouldn't eat these thinking they're not eating sugar or a high sugar snack. There are plenty of bars in the healthier snack bar market with lower sugar, although typically with less clean ingredients, gluten, cereals etc.
I understand that but what I meant is these have natural sugars found in dates etc. They use dates obviously because they needed some sort of sugar source without resorting to adding sugar... otherwise they would be as tasty as cardboard. Normal bars have tons more added sugar. If you want a sweet treat these are much better from a sugar intake point of view too. Of course they are still sugary but that is not what I meant. If you're watching your sugar intake, while not willing to give up sweet stuff, these are much better. A 45gr bar of Dairy Milk has 25gr of sugar... My partner is one of those who loves sweet stuff and he found these bars "healthier" since there is less sugar compared to traditional bars but they still satisfy his sweet tooth somehow. If you want a healthy snack you don't have snack bars as they will always have a high sugar content in absolute terms but mine was a comparison between traditional bars and these bars and the "watching your sugar intake" was referred to those who are still eating treats but trying to cut down on sugar. I hope I clarified my previous statement. I am not trying to fight. Just like to discuss things politely :). I tried a few flavours of these and some are better than others but they are definitely less sweet than normal snack bars and I'm not someone who is crazy about sweet stuff.
No they're not. I'm not going to side with those that stupidly compared these to dairy milks last time, ignoring the whole ingredients etc. But these don't help with your sugar intake. You just need to look at the sugar content - which is 45.6% - 16g per bar. That's around 5 teaspoons per bar. Dried dates are very high in sugar and not the best fruit choice. It would be much better to get that sugar from fresh fruit. These bars do give you a big sugar hit. I have some, I find this flavour very tasty, they are better than traditional junk snack bars - but they are high in sugar. I am a healthy lifestyle freak, and don't eat traditional snack bars, but these aren't good if you're watching your sugar intake. You seem to think that not adding sugar means the sugar doesn't exist. And fruit sugars are no better than refined sugar really - arguably worse in some cases. They're better in fruit form with all the fibre etc.
Yes, dates are sweet but that's natural sugar. There's no added sugar like in normal snack bars. I'm not a healthy lifestyle freak at all so I will eat both types lol but if you're watching your sugar intake these are much better from that point of view.
They're still high in sugar because they're around half dates, but yeah, cretainly a better alternative to traditional snack bars and I agree with the rest.
No duping involved. They don't make any health claims etc. The branding is about no crap added, which is true. And they're quite clear about the high date content - which anyone should know is high in sugar. I personally found the bakewell tart one very tasty. Peanut one is good too, and chocolate wasn't bad. Dairy milk is disgusting sugary fat with milk powder added. There's no trade off really. It's about personal taste. You can't just munch on bars with abandon regardless of how healthy they are. They're always likely going to be calorie dense and fairly quickly assimilated. I've always viewed these as something you eat when you're out hiking or something. Had one when mountain biking. Like Tribe energise bars etc. but cheaper.
Sugar filled fun.... njoy the betes
Errr.... I think your getting your wires crossed. I know the health issues behind it. Others don't like hearing it. Go for it if you want
25% nuts (good ones at that - almonds and cashew), good fat, vitamins, minerals. ~150 calories per par, almost 15g of sugar sure, but ~5g of protein, 7.5g of healthy fat. There are far worse things you can eat. People need to stop thinking it's just about macros, it really isn't. Dairy milk tastes foul to me, is no where near as nice to me (or likely anyone with a taste for decent chocolate or decent food), and is cleary far less healthy. The macros in dairy milk are likely far worse, processed, refined sugar and ingredients, and seriously lacking in micro nutrients. Combining fat and sugar isn't a great idea if you want to lose weight, but the fat in this should help prevent blood sugar spikes. "Sugar is sugar" is a ridiculously overly simplistic and reductionist mantra that ignores the clear differences here. This isn't bad for you really, while a dairy milk clearly is. /rant
I think Turret is on your side. As I interpreted it, Turret is saying (to me) don't bother trying to explain the whole sugar thing, as people wont listen.
I think the key here is "when compared to". Everything has to be in moderation when you're a diabetic. We have a Type 1 in the household. Simply assuming that sugars from fruit does not raise your glucose level is naive to say the least. Why do you think fruit juices and smoothies are now classified as junk food even when made fresh?
This is not supported by diabetes.org.uk, who say the following: "The concern has been that because fruits contain sugar, it makes your blood glucose go up. In fact, most fruits have low to medium glycaemic index, so they do not lead to a sharp rise in your blood glucose levels compared to other carbohydrate containing foods like white or wholemeal bread."
Afraid that there's no such thing as an offset if you are diabetic. Glucose is glucose no matter what the source is. Talk to any Type 1s. The next meal depends on the measurement of the blood glucose level just before the meal. You cannot offset the measurement with fibre or vitamins ;-) The measurement also tells one how much insulin to inject.
My point was never about weight gain, and if you are equating something being "unhealthy" with being related to whether or not they can help you lose weight then we are not talking about the same thing. I don't personally eat these bars, but the original post was questioning how they can be a healthy snack, since they have "an awful lot of sugar in them". Most fruit has 'an awful lot of sugar' in, and are clearly healthy snacks. A fruit as a whole food contains fibre and other nutrients which offset the bad effects of the sugar. I would be interested to here your take on the diabetes.org.uk article I posted above, as well as this: https://nutritionfacts.org/2016/08/09/what-about-all-the-sugar-in-fruit/ I get the impression we are both getting rather bored with this discussion however (lol)
The issue is that there really is no healthy sugar. Sugar is the worst thing you can really have because its the hardest to work off, Vitamins from fruit are great, but your also getting the negatives from the sugar. Don't get me wrong if you have fruit as a balanced diet and are active, its not a problem. If your struggling to lose weight, then its not going to help you. Your better off eating protien bars which only have 1-3 grams of sugar as a snack. But each to there own, i wouldn't touch these. Id rather buy and eat that banana.
Doesn't particularly look to have that much protein? 20g, but also 20g of fat and a boatload of calories?
Same as you they are nice enjoy.
Mines expired September 2018 and I have the coco, berry and cashew, sounds like you got a better deal with the bake well tart
I thought it was meant to be : Berry Delight, Cashew Cookie, Cocoa Orange ???? Which ones you got?
Thats what i got its ok was meant to be a mixed box.
Only checked the ones eaten...Feb 2019.
You must’ve missed this far better deal? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nakd-yummy-mix-24-bars-in-three-flavours-399-with-code-new-customers-groupon-2976271
Any in Gloucester?
Superb price - but so small(nerd)
24 for £8 if you have a Heron near you. (3 for £1 offer) different varieties too.
Yes very true about the points! Although I think the crunch range is generally more expensive when you’re buying a multi-pack certainly on amazon!
74p each or 2 for £1 at Asda on whatever range they stock. Works out much the same should you want the cocoa ones and you get points at H&B I think?
They are made with dates. Lots of sugar in dates.
Personally this was my favourite out of the range. Didnt taste over sweet and fills you up
Very tasty and moreish so not great for the diet....... won't be buying them again for that reason. If they're in the house, it's hard to say no!!
These were so gross lol, gave them to the birds.
Soooo much sugar!
50p a bar is good deal for these. As the 4 packs are on offer reasonably often for £2. At 55p this is OK/meh.
The cherry bakewell ones are lovely.
Think I'll keep my clothes on thanks. :)
Heat added welcome to the site
Thanks Cdeano. Not a bad price. Heat added
Contacted Amazon and got 2 £3 vouchers !! Must be best deal I've had £2.56 profit ! Contacted seller too. See what he says next. :D
Here is what happened to me. I took a screenshot of my order, which indicated "pack of 18". Yesterday, I received the package with only 1 bar. I emailed the seller via Amazon. This morning they offered £3 amazon voucher. Two emails and you get the bar for free, even just one. Can't complain too much~~Hope this helps~~
Contacted them as well got a voucher £3
My feelings too! They offered the same. So 25p + a bar up. Can't grumble.
Fair play to Innox Trading - they've given me a £3 Amazon voucher, too. They also said I could keep the bar, too! I'll have that for me brekky tomorrow morning :D
Check back another day. I'm lucky we have 2 their shops where I live.
Went in, nothing :(
Normally £1 each in some shops. Good price
Got some of these the other day! My local had a sign up saying 3 for £1 so I bought six, and then when I went to pay he said they were actually 4 for £1 and told me to go get two more (highfive)
Wow! Corking deal!
Expired :( Awesome deal though
Expired. Only showing as 22.99 from Amazon for me.
22.99 for me also
Says £22.99 for me.
Cheers op...just ordered ta.
To be fair part of the problem is that people think they can eat processed "fruit bars" like this as part of their 5 a day... The "fruit" in bars like this is certainly not on par with fresh fruit. This bar is pretty much peanuts and dried prunes, neither are a good food for weight loss diets, though they do have their health merits compared to other snack foods.
It makes sense. Thanks (y)
145k Per bar is not good for dieting
It's a fruit bar. Bit like saying I'll avoid fruit on a diet as it's too high in sugar. Noone would do that, would they. :) It's added sugar you want to avoid. Look out for the total amount of sugar you eat in a day and avoid things like sugary drinks and adding sugar to cups of tea or jam to porridge, that sort of thing with added sugar. It's the 'ultra processed refined foods' that have no inherent nutritional value and are turning this country obese you want to look out for like eg Mr Kipling, Cadbury's, Crisps, Kelloggs cereals, Haribo... https://www.theguardian.com/science/2018/feb/02/ultra-processed-products-now-half-of-all-uk-family-food-purchases
