$10 for $25 Toward KIND Snack Bars and Healthy Grains
All-natural, gluten-free, and filled with nuts, fruit, honey, and spices, KIND bars come in cases and gift sets ranging from 16 to 96 bars. A mix of Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants, Almond & Coconut, and Cranberry Almond + Antioxidants bars pack a KIND Advantage Starter Kit ($53.50), and a KIND Cube gift box’s 16 bars ($34.95) snuggle up to a greeting card. Low in sugar and high in protein and ampersands, mixed cases of 72 Nuts & Spices or Healthy Snacks bars (each $107.50) contain a sampling of flavor combinations such as almond, apricot, and coconut.
Though KIND fruit-and-nut bars reside in the snack aisle rather than behind a pharmacy counter, they’ve still found their way into medical research. As researcher Dr. David Katz reported to ABC News, a 2010 study found that adding two KIND bars per day to participants’ diets helped them maintain—and in some cases even lose—body weight. The results confirmed a theory of snacking that KIND’s founders had suspected all along—that the secret to healthy eating lies in embracing natural, whole ingredients rather than cutting foods out.
After years of helming the socially minded PeaceWorks Inc., entrepreneur Daniel Lubetzky and his team launched KIND in 2003. Based on a philosophy of unification, not compromise, KIND's products strive for a perfect merging of taste, convenience, and flavor. Its original fruit-and-nut bars, available in varieties such as Almond & Coconut and Peanut Butter & Strawberry, share digital shelf space with KIND Plus bars, which are packed with extra nutrition, and KIND Nuts & Spices, a low-sugar option that combines nuts with flavorful spices. KIND Healthy Grains come in clusters perfect for popping in one’s mouth or throwing at a sleeping cubicle mate. KIND maintains its social mission with its KIND Movement, an initiative aimed at making the world a little kinder. Currently spreading kindness across the country one act at a time, KIND's products were recently lauded by the Today Show.
