Why Is The Nakd Bakewell Tart Bar High In Syns?
If you are a lover of Nakd bars, you might be quite surprised to learn that they are 7 syns per bar which is nearly half of your daily syn allowance!
The main reason as to why these bars are high in syns is down to the fact their main ingredients are cashews and dates, these ingredients are both natural and good for, but are also very calorie-dense, hence why the syns are high.
