Did that catch your attention???
The lovely people over at the Natural Balance Foods contacted me to review their mixed box of Nakd bars, which are healthy cereal bars.
The bars came in this cute packaging and even had a couple of other goodies with them:
There were so many different flavors to try, and luckily we got the box right before the blizzard hit, so I knew we had some snack material if we needed it!
I haven't tried all of the bars yet, but my favorite was definitely the Cocoa Crisp, and MG really liked the Ginger Bread bar, too. He even asked if he could take a few to work (I definitely let him have the banana flavored one since Jenn and bananas dont mix!) #husbandwin
They are gluten free, wheat free, and dairy free, so it's a perfect go-to for anyone with those dietary restrictions. These are NOT nut free.
I like the fact that these are all natural, made out of good stuff, and hold good values for proteins. I had one of them before I went out to shovel and had a good amount of energy to get through it, so I think the bar definitely helped give me the extra boost I needed.
Do these taste like candy bars? No.
Do they taste bad? No. But I don't think you can go into eating them thinking they're gonna taste like a regular old chocolate bar. Because they wont. They take on more of a fruit taste, which makes sense since they're usually made with dates as part of the base.
I think they're a good snack option to have if you're looking for something that's healthy and has natural ingredients in it. I'm looking forward to finishing up my box and trying out the rest of the flavors!
