Walking through the health food store, I am always looking for new snacks to try. I look for ones that have few ingredients, so when I came upon KIND Fruit + Nut Bars, and I could see the whole nuts and pieces of dried fruit, I had to pick some up.
There are tons of flavors to choose from like Macadamia & Apricot, Walnut & Date, and Banana & Oat Bran. They are gluten-free, dairy-free, have no trans fat, no GMO, are a good source of fiber, and have no added preservatives, colors, or flavors.
How do they taste? So delicious! They're got a great chewy and crunchy texture that was very satisfying. All the natural ingredients make this bar so flavorful, and a great afternoon snack before or after a workout. Plus, they're conveniently wrapped, so you can stash them in your desk, purse, or gym bag.
They're made in Australia with all natural ingredients, and 5% of the profits go to OneVoice, a PeaceWorks foundation that fosters co-existence in the Middle East, so they're good for your body and for the world.

These bars reminded me a little of LARABARS, so here's a chart comparing the two:
|1 Bar||Calories||Fat (g)||Sodium (mg)||Carbs (g)||Fiber (g)||Sugars (g)||Protein (g)||Ingredients|
|KIND Bar (Almond & Coconut)||190||14||25||14||4||11||4||almonds,
|KIND Bar (Almond & Apricot)||170||11||25||16||5||13||3||almonds,
|LARABAR (cashew cookie)||210||12||0||23||3||14||6||cashews,
|LARABAR (Key Lime Pie)||200||10||0||28||4||20||4||dates,
lime juice concentrate
I know at first glance it looks like these have a lot of fat, but keep in mind that the fat comes from the nuts, so it's healthy fat your body needs.
