The following product review is for Nakd’sFlavour Infused Raisins“. You can see reviews of similar allergy friendly products in our Snacks category.

Nakd’s website says “we are a young British company devoted to increasing world happiness with yummy healthy snacks, humour and helpfulness. That means we make delicious, good-for-you munchies, do our best to help others, and try to spread a little joy along the way”.

The packets of Flavour Infused Raisins contain sun-dried raisins, citric acid and natural flavour and that’s it.  No nasties, nothing artificial and no added sugar.  These snacks are wheat free, gluten free, dairy free and lactose free which makes them suitable for coeliacs (celiacs) and anyone allergic to dairy or intolerant to wheat or lactose, they are also suitable for vegans.

Although the product does not contain any nuts, the allergen information states they are packed in an environment that packs nuts, peanuts, sesame and gluten.

I first came across these snacks whilst attending The Allergy Show in London.  Initially I was a bit hesitant and didn’t know what to expect, but after trying the Tangy Lime Flavour Infused Raisins I was immediately hooked.  The infused raisins come in six different flavours:

  1. Cherry
  2. Crazy Cola
  3. Pineapple
  4. Lemon
  5. Orange
  6. Tangy Lime

Appearance

The packets are really bright and eye catching and they have cute little jokes on the back.

Available as:

25g Packet

Tested By

Me, my husband and the 3 girls tested these.  I did a blind taste test on each of them so that they didn’t know which flavour they were testing.

Cherry Infused Raisins

Nakd Cherry Infused Raisins

The Verdict

Everyone correctly identified the flavour of these, you could tell by just smelling them that they were cherry flavoured.

These cherry infused raisins were delicious, sweet and tangy.  The girls said that they grow on you and thought that they were addictive.  I would agree that they are extremely moreish!

Rating: ★★★★½ 

Crazy Cola

Naked Crazy Cola Flavour Infused Raisins

The Verdict

Everyone correctly identified the flavour of these, you smell of the cola hit you immediately upon opening the packet.

These crazy cola raisins really do taste of cola and surprisingly it works!  They are definitely cola flavoured (not coca cola flavoured), they taste of cola cubes or the type of cola you get on draught in a pub or restaurant.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

Pineapple Flavour

Nakd Pineapple Infused Raisins

The Verdict

Again, everyone successfully identified the flavour of these.

These pineapple infused raisins were nice and sweet but not too sweet.  The flavour was the same as dried pineapple that you get from the health food store rather than that of fresh pineapple.

Rating: ★★★★½ 

Lemon Flavour

Nakd Lemon Infused Raisins

The Verdict

Only one person was able to correctly identify these lemon raisins, and that was my youngest daughter who thought they smelled of lemon but tasted of orange!  Once the others had been told that they were lemon flavoured they all then said “oh yes, I can tell now”.  We weren’t as keen on these as we were on the others, at this point in the taste test they were the least favourite.

One of the girls described these lemon flavoured raisins as “zingy”.

Rating: ★★★★☆ 

Orange Flavour

Nakd Orange Infused Raisins

The Verdict

No one was able to correctly  identify the flavour of these orange flavoured raisins from either their smell or taste.  We thought that they had rather a strange and unappealing smell to them.

These orange infused raisins were our least favourite of the six flavours.

Rating: ★★½☆☆ 

Tangy Lime

Nakd Tangy Lime Infused Raisins

The Verdict

Everyone correctly identified the flavour of these from just a quick sniff, they smelt and tasted absolutely gorgeous.

These tangy lime infused raisins were totally delicious, they are wonderfully refreshing and they were a total hit with all of us.  I have becomed slightly addicted to these since I first discovered them, but I don’t feel too guilty as they count as one of your “five a day!”.

Rating: ★★★★½ 

And the winner is…….

It’s a tie for 1st place – the joint winners are “Tangy Lime” and “Pineapple”

Overall Verdict

We were really pleased to have discovered these and absolutely love them.  They are great for lunchboxes and a perfect snack for in-between meals or as an alternative to sweets.  We think that they are brilliant, they are a clever twist on plain ordinary raisins.
