Naturally Nood are a brand-new vegan bar produced by Sanitarium

There are six flavours of Naturally Nood bars (as listed above) and I chose to purchase the three flavours currently available at the Dandenong Plaza Woolworths store: Cashew Crunch, Berry Licious and Cocoa Lamington. Since these bars have only just been launched, your local supermarket may stock a few flavours or all six. 

Included on the packaging is the exact percentage of each ingredient used to create the bar. With all the lab-created additives pumped into our food these days, it's comforting to know exactly what you're eating. Naturally Nood bars contain zero added sugar, with the sweetness coming from dried fruits such as date and sultanas, and even fruit juices. 

It's said that the shorter the ingredient list, the better a product is for you. Naturally Nood bars are no exception and are not short of flavour. 

Cashew Crush is simply equal parts dates to cashews which make for a nice balance of sweet and savoury. The cashews add a little crunch and creamy flavour to the bar. 

Berry Licious is the softest of the three bars and super-fruity tasting. The apple juice really helps to make the berry flavour shine. 

Cocoa Lamington combines the best parts of actual baked lamingtons - the cocoa and coconut, a pairing that always tastes great together. The addition of raisins give that extra bit of sweetness.  

Naturally Nood bars are a healthy energy source to replace sugar-laden muesli bars in your kids' lunchboxes. Keep a stash in your desk at work and in your pantry at home to curb your desire for a naughty mid-afternoon or evening treat. 

The simple, all-natural ingredients and flavour combinations of Naturally Nood bars make for guilt-free snaking. 

For the other high carb vegans out there, as an extra-special creation, cut the bar into a few pieces, then roll each piece into balls and fold through a bowl of vanilla or chocolate banana ice cream for an almost cookie dough-like texture. 

My favourite flavour? Cocoa Lamington, although, I look forward to trying the remaining three flavours: Banana Bread, Cheeky Cocoa and Cocoa & Orange Tango. 

Would I repurchase Naturally Nood bars? Yes.

  1. Was just perusing google for some reviews of the lamington bar - almost universally it has the green light so will be going to buy some tomorrow - can't wait to try it!

    1. It's SO good. I've tried all six now (here's my review of the other three: but Cocoa Lamington is still my fave, with Berry Licious a close second. They're $2 each at Woolworths this week, in case you didn't know. Enjoy!
