Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt 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.
  • Most KIND Bars have a very low glycemic index, which makes them more diabetic-friendly and less likely to make you hungry.
  • 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.
  • They're a good source of fiber with 5g (20% DV) of fiber.
  • They're low in sodium with just 140mg (6% DV) of salt.

Cons

  • They contain at least 4 added sweeteners: honey, maple syrup, natural maple flavor, and non-GMO glucose. 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 at least 4 potential allergens: almonds, peanuts, pecans, and soy lecithin.

Our Rankings

Are KIND Bars healthy? Are they good for you?

We believe KIND Bars are healthier than many other types of snacks because they're made from quality ingredients and don't contain large amounts of sweeteners, excessive calories/salt, or other additives.

However, we believe they're slightly less healthy than eating the core whole foods (nuts, grains, or fruit) without extra ingredients.
