I’m part of the low blood sugar brigade, which means I’ve always got a stash of energy or protein bars tumbling out of my bag. Unfortunately, most of those protein bars taste like butt. You know what I’m talking about.
So it was with great reluctance that I closed my eyes and gingerly bit into an all-natural Kind Fruit & Nut Bar at the Fancy Foods Show last month.
And it was good.
Better than good. The macadamia apricot is absolutely terrific and the almond coconut was pretty yummy too. It’s pretty much just nuts, fruit and honey which means they’re gluten, wheat and dairy-free, and have a low glycemic index–making them a way better choice than a granola bar. You could totally tuck one into the kid’s lunchbox, but at $2 each this might be a treat better saved for you.
The company is cool too, donating profits to an org doing good things for peace in the middle east. I guess the idea is that everyone can come together over a fruit and nut bar. –Liz
