Snack Review: Healthy and Delicious KIND Bars Non-GMO and Gluten-Free

My morning snack - an Almond and Coconut KIND Fruit and Nut Bar

My morning snack – an Almond and Coconut KIND Fruit and Nut Bar

I had my first KIND Bar on my way to LA for a Disney premier. I was standing at a snack counter at SeaTac airport looking for one healthy thing I could eat. By healthy I mean something without any artificial colors and flavors and it had to be vegetarian. Not an easy task at the airport.

I happened to notice the KIND Bars so I picked one up and checked out the ingredients. I was pleasantly surprised by the real food ingredients so I purchased one up. I wasn’t expecting to really like it; after all, it WAS healthy.

The plane took off and about 1-1/2 hours into the flight my stomach started growling so I reached for that Almond & Coconut KIND Bar. Upon tasting it I was rewarded with the most delicately sweet and crunchy bar I’ve ever tasted. It was every much as decadent as any coconut cookie I’d ever eaten. That was my first bar and I was head over heels for it.

Snack like there is a tomorrow

I’ve had many KIND Bars since that trip. They’re my go-to lower sugar treat. Every flavor is packed with natural whole fruit and nuts plus they are crammed with nutrients, calcium, protein, fiber, and iron. I even love the Almond and Apricot which I’d have sworn I’d never enjoy.

These fabulous little snacks do not have any chemical additives, no high fructose corn syrup, and no hydrogenated oils. In fact, you’ll be able to pronounce every ingredient you’re eating. Need proof? Here’s the ingredient list for my favorite Almond & Coconut KIND Bar: Almonds, coconut, honey, non GMO glucose, crisp rice, chicory root fiber, soy lecithin. Pretty amazing, huh! At $1.99 a bar (discounts are available on their website for auto orders of up to 60 cents off a bar see KIND Advantage below), I think it’s a fabulous deal.

They make a huge variety of flavors but they’re best selling are their Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + AntioxidantsAlmond & Coconut, and Cranberry Almond + Antioxidants. There are bars for every taste and nutritional need including gluten-free.

What could they do to make them better? Make them from all GMO-free or organic ingredients, but they’re very nearly perfect as they are.


Buy buying directly from KIND Snacks and taking advantage of their auto-order program, you’ll get these healthy snacks delivered right to your home as often as you like (every 1, 2 or 3 months) and for 30% less than retail!  Plus shipping is free and there are perks exclusive to KA members which include samples of new flavors before they hit the market and their limited edition KIND gear.
