FridayFollow - KIND Healthy Snacks + a Giveaway

For gluten-free on the go, snack bars are a savior. Easily transportable and filling, bars are a good option for filling that snack void. If you're like me and find yourself in a Starbucks looking for an accompaniment to your latte, that little stash of KIND bars near the register feels like it was put there just for you.

KIND started their little nut bar business back in 2004 with 8 different flavors. Their mission was to make a healthy AND tasty snack, and they have succeeded!  Today, they've grown their snack bar line to include 22 nut bar varieties and 6 granola flavors.

The goodness doesn't stop there. Since they believe there's more to business than just profit, they started a movement, Do The Kind Thing. Do The Kind Thing is a commitment to making the world a little kinder, one act of kindness at a time. Share your acts of kindness on Twitter and Instagram tagging it #kindawesome.

This past June, they debuted 2 new flavors to the Nuts & Spices line of bars.

The Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt bar is a sweet and salty combination of pecans, almonds and peanuts covered in maple syrup with a touch of sea salt. It provides 5g fiber and 6g protein with only 5g of sugar. 

The Dark Chocolate Chili Almond bar is a sweet and spicy blend of mixed nuts drizzled in dark chocolate with a trio of cascabel, ancho, and habanero chilies. It has 7g of fiber and 6g of protein with only 5g of sugar. 

I've always been a fan of KIND bars (and granola...nom!), so I knew I would enjoy these new flavors. The Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt bar was very flavorful with the three different nuts and just a hint of sweetness from the maple syrup. I loved that I could really taste the sea salt in there too! The Dark Chocolate Chili Almond bar kicked it up a notch with those chilies! Not to worry if you're not a spicy food lover, the heat was very mild and paired perfectly with the rich dark chocolate. Both of these flavors are great options if you're looking for a little something more in your snack bar.
