Nakd Posh Bits Cocoa Mandarin Flavour
Nakd (aka Natural Balance Foods) have launched a new range of "premium, grown up snacks" called Posh Bits. These replace the Nakd Bits range that have been out for a while now, to the disappointment of many fans I'm sure.
Like all Nakd products, these are a mixture of raw fruit and nuts "smooshed together", and are raw, vegan, dairy free and gluten free. Here's the ingredients list:
Also here's the Nutrition Information, for those who like details of calories and fat etc.
If these are indeed meant to replace Nakd Cocoa Orange Bits, they certainly do a good job of it...they're very tasty! I liked the differing shapes of the bits, there's hearts:
And, what I can only describe as "domes":
The shapes certainly make the whole experience of eating these a lot more fun....but how do they taste?
Well, they're addictively yummy! They have a lovely zesty aroma and flavour from the mandarin, with a good strong cocoa kick. They're the perfect texture; chewy and dense, but not overly soft or too hard. I found them very satisfying and as moreish as they are, for once I didn't want to eat the full bag.
Overall, I have to say these Cocoa Mandarin Posh Bits are a worthy successor to the Cocoa Orange Bits. The Mandarin gives them a juicier, sharper edge that is definitely more sophisticated and the different shapes make them fun to eat. They cost £2.75 a bag in Sainsbury's which is a bit steep for 130g, but they are worth it and I imagine they'll be reduced in price at some point.
9 out of 10.
