Happy Friday! To celebrate the weekend I thought it would be nice to have a little KIND party on the blog today.
KIND sent me some samples to review and although it took me a few weeks, I’ve finally tried all the new flavors:
- Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan – 7 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of sugar
- Madagascar Vanilla Almond – 7 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugar
- Cashew and Ginger Spice – 6 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber and 4 grams of sugar
- Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt – 7 grams of fiber, 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of sugar
What I love about these bars is that they are packed with whole nuts and each one has 5 grams of sugar or less. Many “health/nutrition” bars are loaded with sugar, and many that do have low sugar contain sugar alcohols and artificial sweeteners – not the case with these KIND bars. In addition, KIND Bars are all-natural, gluten-free, low glycemic, non-GMO, and low in sodium! Not too shabby.
To be honest, I like all the new flavors but I do have a favorite and that’s the Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan – it’s like pecan pie that’s been drizzled with a little chocolate. I’ve always been a cinnamon lover and dark chocolate is good on everything so naturally that’s the flavor I absolutely adore.
I also really like the vanilla almond and cashew and ginger spice. Large chunks of nuts combined with the spices and a hint of sweetness = perfection.
Although dark chocolate and sea salt are always a good pair, this one is last on my list. I still like it, just not as much as the others.
Along with the KIND Bar samples, I was also sent some of the KIND Healthy Grains Clusters. They’re similar to granola and really, really tasty. I love the base of amaranth, quinoa, oats, millet and buckwheat used in each variety. <– Real bird food! 😉
My favorite flavors so far are the Peanut Butter (it’s to-die-for) and Dark Chocolate and Cranberry. My only complaint is that the clusters are quite addictive. I currently have a couple open bags stored out of reach, above my fridge, just to keep myself from eating a whole bag in less than three days. Yes, it’s gotten that bad.
Anyhow, enough about my lack of self-control around anything that resembles granola.
The best part about today’s post is that I have the pleasure of giving away a cube of KIND Bars to one lucky EBF reader.
The Cube has 20 KIND bars – some from the new Nuts & Spice line and some old favorites! To enter, leave a comment below with what flavor Nuts & Spices KIND Bar you’re most excited to try. The giveaway will be open until Sunday, July 22nd at midnight and I’ll announce the winner early next week.
Enjoy your weekend!
