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 today's Groupon: for $15, you get $35 worth Kind health bars from kindsnacks.com.
Made with simple, all-natural ingredients, Kind bars mix delectable fruit and nut flavors with health-conscious recipes to curb hunger. The gluten-free, kosher bars come chock full of such protein purveyors as pecans, almonds, and walnuts alongside sweeter nibbles of apricots, blueberries, apples, and more. Unlike mystery meat or seventh-grade science experiments, each bar’s ingredients are clearly listed on the label. Stock pantries with a 20-bar healthy indulgence cube ($42.95), or send a camp-bound kid a gift capsule ($19.95 for an 8-bar capsule; $27.95 for a 12-bar capsule) to quiet homesickness-induced marshmallow gorging. 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.
What snacks are as good for your body as it is for the world and your taste buds? This isn't an ancient riddle. It's just the question that the makers of KIND Snacks ask themselves every day. Their answer? "Ours." Made from whole ingredients, including nuts and fruits bound in honey, KIND's original bars set the standard for the company's commitment to innovative snacking. That ethos comes out in the company's other offerings: KIND Healthy Grain Clusters and KIND Healthy Grains Bars bolster wellness with the addition of five gluten free super grains, and the new STRONG & KIND bars mix almonds with savory flavors like roasted jalapenos and honey-smoked BBQ.
