Just in time to get your healthy snack on when heading back to school, Kind has added six new flavor to its lineup of bars. I was lucky enough to receive some preview samples of the new flavors. I appreciate how healthy these bars are, but the flavors were a little hit-and-miss for me.
Although I'm usually a peanut butter freak, the two bars featuring this ingredient did not wow me, but some of the simple fruit flavors did. Here's a thumbnail review of each new flavor:
- The Peanut Butter Chocolate is definitely high in protein but was so chocolately I couldn't really taste the peanut butter.
- Although I enjoyed the flavor of strawberry essence in the Peanut Butter Strawberry bar, I would rather make myself a sandwich with the same ingredients.
- I loved the high-in-fiber Blueberry Pecan Bar; it was sweet and tart with a perfectly chewy texture.
- The Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio was also a palate-pleaser and provides 50 percent daily value of vitamins A, C, and E.
- The Apple Cinnamon Pecan reminded me of apple pie and wasn't too sweet.
- The Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew definitely satisfied my chocolate craving.
