I've skimmed over these interesting looking treats many times before, because although they clearly state that they're "simply yummy", I clearly wasn't prepared to pay £2 for naked nut bits. But after seeing Kev's Snack Review of these the other day, I was a lot more tempted to pick them up. These are basically what they say on the packet, they're bits made from fruit and nuts, with cocoa and orange. They're also free from pretty much everything you'd want them to be free from, so they're essentially pretty naked.
I must say they look pretty good, almost like some kind of heavenly chocolate orange fudge. But fudge they are not. Instead these are dense pieces of smooshed up fruit and nuts, and as such they are very heavy and filling. Thankfully, they're packed with flavour, a distinctly chocolatey taste with tangy hints of orange, all wrapped up in a lovely nutty texture. A few nuggets of these bad boys makes a wonderfully tasty snack, but unfortunately I found them so nice that I polished off the bag in one go. Oops. Still, that's just testament to how nice these things are. These bits are a nice, healthy, natural snack (though not too healthy if you devour them all at once).
My rating: 5/5
