Repressing hunger over long periods of time leads to neurotic binges on self-destructive foods such as asbestos pops, uranium bits, and unsubmitted grad-school applications. Snack on something good for you with this Groupon: for $10, you get $25 worth of health snacks from KINDsnacks.com.
Currently on a nationwide tour, KIND's all-natural bars, lauded by The Today Show, mix delectable fruit and nut flavors with health-conscious recipes to curb hunger. Ideal for handing off to fit-seekers or circus jugglers, the KIND Gift Capsule ($19.95) packs a medley of eight bars into a handsome clear baton, drawing from flavor combinations such as almond and coconut, mango macadamia, and sesame and peanuts striped with chocolate.
KIND Healthy Grains ($32–$35) blend artisanal mixes of whole grains, clusters, nuts, and spices in resealable pouches. Larger boxes such as the 40-bar mini fruit and nut delight pack ($44.50) can fill lunch boxes for weeks or fuel active bodies on hikes, bike rides, or inelastic trampolines. This offer cannot be used toward shipping; the KIND shipping team sends parcels via FedEx Ground ($6.95) or FedEx 2nd Day ($14.95) because carrier pigeons insist on eating the merchandise. Customers in need of an immediate taste can locate the KIND food truck for a free sample.
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.
