Loved the peanut butter and fruit flavors, so I tried this one. After a couple of days of intestinal disaster, I took a closer look at the nutrition label and saw chicory root, apple puree, and citrus fiber. I should have realized this added fiber was not a good idea for people who must adhere to a low FODMAPs diet. Not the fault of Kind, obviously, but I hope this review might help someone. If you're the sort of person who cannot handle an apple, beans, or brussels sprouts, you're better off going with a flavor without added fiber or apple puree.
I have brought many of your products and find the blueberry vanilla clusters to be disappointing. The reason being is not much blueberry nor vanilla favour... and also flax seeds unless ground, have no nutritional value as the benefits are not absorbed when whole. I called your phone number listed on package and Canadians are not able to connect to that 1-855 number. If you sell your products in Canada there should be a phone number avaialble for us to contact. Thank you
Love this stuff, can't get enough of it. Like some of the other reviewers, though, I wonder about the use of whole flax, as humans can't digest it and so we don't get any of the lovely benefits of having it included. Ground would be much better.
For review readers (and Pamela) - Canola oil can be non-GMO and is not toxic at all. The toxicity thing is an internet myth. It's actually pretty healthy compared to other oils.
In reviewing the ingredients for many different Kind products the removal of any Soy, soy Lecithin, canola oil....non GMO canola? (really?) and sugar. These are all GMO and canola is toxic no matter if it is GMO or not. How about using Coconut Oil, palm (coconut) sugar. How about using the NON-GMO Label?
LOVE IT TO PIECES! Flax seeds, not a problem! Expensive? Depends. I eat it because it is good for you, and doesn't increase my sugar, since I was confirmed as a pre-diabetic. I have been looking for a bar/clusters like this for a long time. And, I finally found one that I can enjoy. I am just a happy camper!
Thank you KIND!
I absolutely love this granola! I can't stop eating it, I do think it is a little over priced. I am allergic to peanuts and I have always had a problem finding granola without any type of nut, but KIND Vanilla Blueberry clusters does not have nuts so thank you for that!
I really love the taste of this granola. However, my gut hates the whole flax seeds. They are impossible to digest. (We are humans, not nutcrackers:)
Great tasting granola but I question the use of whole flax seed. From my research whole flax runs right through while ground flax is digested better thus getting the benefits.
I like your product, BUT it's over priced when compared to other similar products I have purchased locally. So I checked your website to try to find packages of Vanilla Blueberry Clusters w/Flax seeds at a reasonable prices. Amazingly it's even more expensive from your website than I can buy directly at the local stores. I like the products, but not so much that I will continue to buy them. Thanks, but I'll be looking elsewhere for my breakfast cereal.
I am dairy and gluten intolerant. While on vacation in Wisconsin I bought some of the Vanilla Blueberry Clusters Granola, at Whole Foods. OMG!!!!! I was in heaven. I live in Spokane, WA. We have no Whole Foods and very limited Kind Products. I put the granola on everything from my salads, to my gluten free stir fries.. Kind you are my savior......................... But, possible you can start selling more of your products in Spokane. Maybe you and Whole Foods can open up a store. I guarantee you both will have many fans. Rose in Spokane....
Try this product with greek yogurt you fall in love.
LOVE LOVE this Granola!
This stuff is great! I just finished an HCG bout and Im on the maintence plan and eating for my blood type which is just perfect for me...I have it as a cereal with almond milk and its very delish..:-) A
This is a very tasty treat but be sure to take in moderation. Flax seeds can do a number on your system if you eat too much.
I tried these on some Greek yoghurt and was immediately hooked! Great as a snack right out of the bag.... Very happy. Thanks.
Delicious, filling and healthy. Appreciate the Omega-3s.
trying to order
Looking forward to munching on these bad boys. Love Flax Seed!
Great quick breakfast before class
ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS FLAVOR AND IT TASTES GREAT WITH GREEK YOGURT AND FRESH FRUIT.
I was unbelieable surprised at how AWESOME this granola was, great on bowl or fruit, as cereal, in yogurt or eaten by the hand and hand and hand fulls......You could never stick to the serving size of 1/3 cup....maybe 1/3 of the bag is more like it....Thank you KIND for creating an AWESOME gluten free granola......
Perfect addition to yogurt in the morning
Put it in my yogurt for a dessert, it didn't get soggy like other granola. It gave a good crunch and the blueberries added more flavor! Absolutely going to buy it again!
This stuff is fantastic, especially considering there is no gluten or refined sugar. Especially mixed into yogurt.
This is the type of granola that I keep around my house without fear of consuming the whole bag in one sitting. That's a great thing in these days of food addicting additives. Thank you Kind!!!
I purchased the product at my local whole foods store. I must say that I ABSOULUTELY Love this product. It's filling, but doesn't weigh you down. My 5yr child loved the product also. It was on sale at my local whole foods for $4.36, which I thought was a "good" price that I could "live" with. I'm not sure if I could buy too often at the $5.99 regular price, but I truly enjoyed the Vanilla Bluberry Clusters w/ Flax Seeds. I know that I could eat this ALL DAY :). Thank you KindSnacks for making such a healthy snack that the whole family can enjoy!
I'm a granola-acholic, and have had just about every kind. This is by far my favorite brand. The taste and nutritional value packed into one serving is the best around. If you like BEAR NAKED granola, you will love KIND. Definitely worth making the switch.
I absolutely hate that I can only get the blueberry vanilla bars from Starbucks so I was excited to see these on the shelf. Unfortunately this doesn't taste much like the bars from Starbucks, and the other Kind blueberry bars have other fruit in them and I feel like the blueberry gets lost..... Oh well I guess this is the closest I will get without spending a fortune on individual bars at Starbucks. Shame
This is simply delicious. I really like the kind bars, so I was expecting this to be good too....but it is SO good! It is sweet, crunchy and chewy at the same time. For only 5 g of sugar per serving, it tastes much sweeter to me. I love it on top of my plain Greek yogurt, or just a small handful to snack on alone. THANK YOU KIND!!!
If you can stick to the portion size (1/3 cup), this is low in fat, sodium and sugar. Decent protein and fiber. Unbelievably delicious! I'm so glad I found this. It's good to munch on by itself, eat in a bowl with milk, or my favorite--with yogurt. You feel like you're eating a wonderful treat, yet it's actually good for you! Bad thing is that my local market is frequently out of it. So I stock up when I see it.
