KIND Healthy Snacks’ founder Daniel Lubetzky had a modest ambition when he started the company in 2004: Bring more kindness to the world in the form of a healthy snack. The fruit-and-nut snacks known as the KIND Bar became one of the fastest-growing energy and nutrition bars in the US and can now be found in over 100,000 locations across the country.
The KIND Plus line of snack bars combines great whole-food ingredients and a “plus” supplemental add on like omega-3’s, antioxidants or fiber to boost the overall nutritional value of the bars. A 12 bar box has a MSRP of $23.88 which equates to $1.99 per bar landing the KIND Plus bar on the low end of the spectrum for cost, which is all the more impressive considering the high quality ingredients packed into every bar. KIND bars are known for their clear wrapper that allows you to see the whole food ingredients directly, thereby instilling a real sense of trust of the product from the get go. Almonds, pecans, cashews, peanuts and walnuts make up the base of these delicious bars along with various seeds, dried fruits and yummy chocolate drizzles, that taste so good you would probably hide from your personal trainer while you stuffed them in your mouth. Delicious, made from nutritious whole food ingredients, only 180 calories and they are cost effective too? All of these things add up to the reason we placed KIND Plus Bars at the top of our list when it comes to healthy snacks. In case anyone is wondering, our favorite is the Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants. So yummy!
