They are perfect for sharing with family and friends and are absolutely delicious with tea or coffee, ice cream, champagne or simply as a tasty snack!
Nanaimo Bars start with a chocolately biscuit, coconut base, followed by a layer of custard cream (yet we do several other flavours to whet your appetite) topped off with a high quality Belgian chocolate that offsets the sweet middle perfectly!
They can be dressed up or dressed down, enjoyed with a cold glass of milk or with a glass of Champagne! They are perfect to serve up at dinner parties, BBQs or to have on the go.
The Daily Mail: "We can't stop munching on these delectable Nanaimo Bars 'The Original.' We love serving them up as a sweet treat at dinner parties or bringing a sharing tub into the office to celebrate a birthday."
Olive Magazine: "Amazing Canadian confectionary. Delicious bitesize treats!"
OK! Magazine: "These treats have made our day! So, so yummy!"
Our bars come in five incredibly tasty flavours - original, mint, raspberry, caramel & exclusive to Tesco Backit - we are doing a never seen before flavour - 'Maple Pecan,' with plenty of real maple syrup! We hand craft our bars using top ingredients, ranging from free-range eggs to deliciously smooth and creamy butter with fresh milk to premium Belgian chocolate with a dash of bourbon vanilla!
We are a young Canadian start up and family business with big dreams of offering unique and innovative Canadian food at a store near you. We founded our business because we loved Nanaimo Bars as kids and we still can't get enough of them today. We were born in the UK but our Mum is Canadian and would make the bars for dinner parties. Friends would always comment on how delicious they were.
Our Grandma, who is from Vancouver Island, British Columbia, first started to make Nanaimo Bars in 1953 and has passed down the family recipe through the generations. We now hand craft our Nanaimo Bars 60 years down the line in the UK, using the same recipe, mastered and perfected with fresh and premium ingredients!
Our first customers were Selfridges & Co and Harvey Nichols but we still have a long way to go! Doing everything by hand is time consuming and costly! With your help, the equipment needed will allow us to speed up the manufacturing process, save time and increase our volumes.
"We would absolutely love to have you be a part of our story so we can increase our production, grow further and fulfil our ambitions and dreams of supplying the UK nationally! Funding production to increase our volumes is expensive and often requires upfront payment so your pledges at any level will be a massive help to us. Thank you so much for your kind support!"
Our goal is to scale Nanaimo Bars into more retailers so they are more readily available across the UK for you to enjoy! Please help by pledging for our rewards, so our small business can grow to the next level! We are incredibly passionate about what we do and would love for you to experience a taste of British Columbia, in a variety of mouth-watering flavours!
Why not make a weekend of it in the scenic Cotswolds? Canadian themed food, music, dancing, Nanaimo Bar cocktails from The Cocktail Car Company and of course plenty of Nanaimo Bars!

Nanaimo is a city on Vancouver Island, Canada and derives from the Indian word, meaning "the great people."
Our party will be held at Deer Park Hall, Eckington, Pershore, WR10 3DN (a gorgeous venue with scenic views of the Cotswolds, surrounded by many Cotswold villages) Saturday the 19th of November 2016 from 6pm onwards.

To our awesome Nanaimo Bar supporters,
BIG BEAR HUGS for everyone who has pledged so far. You are all Nanaimo Bar heroes and we really appreciate your amazing support!
We are now 15% funded which is so great but we still have a fair bit to go! If we reach our goal of £10,000, this will have a massive impact on our little business. Not only will we be able to develop exciting new flavours for you all to enjoy but primarily it will allow us to make use of equipment to increase our production volumes! This will allow us to supply more stores across the UK so we can all enjoy these little squares of delight! Every pledge helps us get one step closer to our goal and for that we can’t thank you enough!
We would also like to announce that we are looking for Nanaimo Bar Brand Ambassadors to spread the word about our campaign, which will really help us be in with a sweet chance!
