This is my favorite Kind bar for a morning snack with coffee. People who have figured out that refined sugars and carbohydrates are the enemy will enjoy this one. It's a tasty snack with 4g sugar and 8g net carbs. It's the best thing I've found that doesn't contain sucralose or any of that other garbage! Some people worry about the fat content of the nuts, but that is just a lack of understanding. Fat is your friend.
This is probably one of the "leanest" Kind bars you're going to find. A ratio of 4 grams of sugar to 6 grams of fiber makes it lower on the glycemic index than most other foods you'll naturally encounter. The bar is comprised entirely of REAL and ingredients, and has always left me feeling light and full of energy. I dropped a ton of weight before my wedding with these exact bars being a substantial part of my diet, and felt amazing the entire time. If the taste doesn't wow you, there are a lot of other options in the Kind bar line with similar nutritional profiles (try the mocha almond, or caramel sea salt). In any case, I think this bar excels in accomplishing exactly what it sets out to do; being a super low glycemic, fiber and protein fueled, whole food snack. Great stuff.
Just a note about the fat content.. It's all coming from the nuts. Nuts are "real" food and incredibly healthy/protective against disease. Unless you eat a large amount of animal products you are probably just fine with some nut fat, even 16 whole grams! The recent update to the dietary guidelines in the U.S. has done away with the percent daily values of macro nutrients like fat, it's not a good measure for so many types of bodies. The point of an energy bar is to have calories, if you're concerned about that eat fruit instead.
These taste fine. Not terribly filling though, and wow, total fat 25% DV? No thanks. I'm trying to maximize the nutrition density of all of the food I eat. I don't mind a little healthy fat in my diet, but I prefer to get that from real food. The last thing I want to do is to eat a 'snack' that is 25% fat.
Have only recently become aware of your products.....with the FDA recommendations to lower sugar intake, these bars that are very lo sugar are a delightful find ....and yummy
I just had this bar. Its an OK healthy bar, but not worth the 210 calories and 16G of fat. Now when I go to spin class tonight I will be working off this bar. I would have enjoyed something else more.
I just ate one for the first time from the hospital that I work. The 2 bars was in my wife's gift bag that she received after the birth of our daughter. Not to impressed with power bar and the after taste these had none. Very well made bar.
