I was recently approached to do a review by the makers of Nakd, Natural Balance Foods. I had seen their product in a few places but never actually tried it – I did think their packaging looked really good though, catchy and colourful. So when asked if I’d like to review them, I figured why not? It’s another healthy snack brand and since I’m always on the look out for a new healthy snack I went for it!
So! I got one of their variety packs like the one in the image above and was really excited about trying them out until I read the ingredients for one of the products:
Simply Natural – Made with Dates (43%), Soya Crunchies (17%), Cashews (17%), Raisins (17%), Strawberries (2%), Apple Juice Concentrate (2%) and a hint of natural flavouring.
I don’t like dates 😦 … I really don’t like dates.
I checked a few other ones as I had the variety pack but most of them had a large percentage of dates in it. Hubby laughed his head off because he knows I don’t like dates or nuts in general! (I have a graze box delivered regularly and always give him the ones which have nuts in it!). That said, I love Nigerian groundnuts though! Especially the boiled ones…. oh!
Needless to say, hubby likes it, he likes the portion sizes are pretty good too. But it’s not for me. Anjie wasn’t a fan either – not surprised as she can be quite picky sometimes. I feel a bit bad writing this review but I have to be honest with myself! It’s a good healthy snack, quite clean and all, based on the ingredients so definitely worth a try if you’re looking to try something new AND you love dates!
