Nākd Bars are handy snack-sized bars (30 grams or just over an ounce) made of natural ingredients – primarily fruits and nuts that are gluten, wheat and dairy free, with no added sugars or hidden extras. With a soft, chewy texture, these simple but tasty bars are the perfect snack between meals.
Made by Natural Balance Foods – a British company “devoted to increasing world happiness with yummy healthy snacks, humour and helpfulness,” Nākd Bars come in ten varieties – all of which are made with dried fruits (dates and/or raisins) and nuts (cashews, almonds, and/or pecans), two of nature’s greatest culinary creations.
