Web Chef Review: Robin Hood No-Bake Nanaimo Bar Mix

Web Chef Review: Robin Hood No-Bake Nanaimo Bar Mix - CookingWithKimberly.comIf you’ve never heard of Nanaimo Bars…

…Then, you are missing out on a Canadian National Treasure!

It’s ridiculously rich & delicious, and making them is a bit of a fussy business, but the good thing is, they are no-bake sweets!

Now, this dessert square is full of a chocolatey crumb base, a layer of creamy deliciousness, then a layer of milk chocolate melted on the top to make a shiny creation.

I want to bring you a product I recently tried out, Robin Hood Nanaimo Bar Mix.

I have never really met a Nanaimo bar I didn’t like, but unfortunately, I have to blow the whistle on this one.

Check out this webisode of “What I Say About Food” here:

Maybe it was just the product batch or what-have-you, but the chocolate base wasn’t my favorite. Maybe some of the ingredients were rancid in there, but it didn’t taste nice.

Usually, I’m in love with Robin Hood products, especially their flours, that we can’t bake without in our house.

Nanaimos, in general, as I said earlier are very rich and call for butter in the recipe. However, I just seemed to feel like there was an excessive amount of butter called for to make this box of mix into little, yummy bars.

I just kept adding more and more butter…

Try using white chocolate chips to create a cool swirl effect for the top layer, just to put a smile on everyone’s faces.

Try it out, if you like. I’m hoping it was just the box I had that was “off”. Do let me know your experiences below. Leave a customer review.

  1. HI. Maybe you got a stale box of the Robin Hood Nanaimo bar mix or something because
    it was a very tasty & easy way to make them. Now that it (the mix) has been discontinued
    in Canada as of 2014 we are all stuck making the bars from ‘scratch’ — ugh, definitely
    takes more time than the Robin-Hood-mix-version.

    • Yes, I believe I did, Maxine. We usually do make ours from scratch, but picking up a mix at the store was very convenient & quick when you need some snacks really quickly. Thanks for the comment. Have a marvelous weekend,

    • You know, Cheryl, so many fans & viewers have mentioned how much they miss Robin Hood Nanaimo Bar Mix. Too numerous to count. Too bad companies always stop making the best things everyone loves.

      Let us know how the Superstore mix holds up, if you would…I’m sure there are a number of people interested in where they can get a good nanaimo bar fix from!

      Have a wonderful Holiday season,
