I recently had the opportunity to sample a KIND Plus All-natural Nut Delight Bar. I had always seen them while shopping at Whole Foods Market, but just hadn’t gotten around to picking one up. The bars are low in sodium, gluten and wheat free, contain nutrients like calcium and iron and best of all, NON-GMO! I’m not really a fan of peanuts in my snack bars, but the mix included almonds, walnuts, macadamias, cashews and my all-time favorite, brazil nuts, too. So, imagine my delight at being asked to try 4 different varieties of the new KIND Nuts & Spices bars! All four flavors are packed with so much nutrition and natural ingredients that you can see and pronounce. These bars make healthy snacking so easy. They are like healthy trail mix in a convenient bar.
Most snack bars are full of sugar, processed and hidden ingredients like sugar alcohols and preservatives, but not KIND. In fact, right now you can join KIND in taking the special SAY NO TO SECRET INGREDIENTS PLEDGE. The first 100,000 people to sign up and take the pledge to say no to secret ingredients will receive a $0.50 coupon redeemable at retail on the new KIND Nuts & Spices bars.
