September 2015: KIND Healthy Grains Bars

I’m sure many of us have experienced this phenomenon in our daily eating habits: foods that taste good are not good for you. However, that is not the case for KIND Healthy Grains Granola Bars. These wonderful square bars are packed with 5 super grains and 18 to 22g of whole grains. The traditional KIND Healthy Grains Bars come in five flavors: Oats & Honey, Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Chunk, Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate, and Vanilla Blueberry. Having tried all of the varieties, I can say they are all delicious. They are a lighter alternative to KIND Bars as they are granola-based and not nut-based; each KIND Healthy Grain Bar is 150 calories or under compared to KIND Bars that are 190+ calories. There are also two coffee-infuse KIND Healthy Grains Bars: Caramel Macchiato and Dark Chocolate Mocha. I haven’t yet been able to get my hands on these flavors, but as a coffee lover and KIND Bar enthusiast, I imagine these will be my new favorites! Finally, KIND Healthy Grains has popped bars with Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt varieties. This is next on my to-buy list; I imagine they would taste like flavored popcorn, which is enough to convince me to try these bars. For anyone with dietary restrictions, these bars are the perfect snack! And even if you don’t have any dietary restrictions, these bars are little squares of deliciousness and sweetness that aren’t just “a good snack considering they are gluten-free”. Hope my fellow northeasters are surviving Jonas!
