Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew & Antioxidant KIND Bars Review

TLDR

KIND Bars are a convenient, decent tasting, relatively healthy "on the go" alternative to other snacks since they're mostly made from whole foods.

Pros

  • One of KIND Snacks' slogans is "ingredients that you can see and pronounce" and this is generally true. Most ingredients are simple, whole foods.
  • They're very convenient when you don't have time to prepare a real meal.
  • They're very convenient during a workout or hike when your hands are dirty.
  • Most KIND Bars have a very low glycemic index, which makes them more diabetic-friendly and less likely to make you hungry,
  • They're a good source of fiber with 4g (16% DV) of fiber.
  • They're low in sodium with just 20mg (1% DV) of salt.
  • They contain 3 added vitamins: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, and Vitamin E.

Cons

  • They contain at least 3 added sweeteners: glucose syrup, honey, and sugar. Sweeteners improve taste and are okay in moderation. However, sweeteners also add unnecessary calories, often make you hungry, and raise your blood sugar.
  • They contain "natural flavors" as an ingredient. Natural flavors are not necessarily bad but they do represent an unknown as they can be a variety of different ingredients. Ideally, it's better to be aware of all the ingredients you eat.
  • They contain at least 4 potential allergens: almonds, cashews, peanuts, and soy lecithin.
  • They contain refined grain flour (rice flour) instead of a whole grain equivalent. Refined flour is usually less nutritious than the whole grains its made from. In addition, flour generally raises your blood pressure more than whole grains.
