Too Kind, Too KIND
I had breakfast with friends over Thanksgiving and one mentioned her love for the Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan. Later that day, I was at the amazing Jungle Jim's International Market and was able to find one for myself, plus a couple of other varieties that were new to me.
Peanut Butter and Strawberry -- Has the flavors of a PB&J. It wouldn't get me out of bed in the morning, but I'll definitely add it into the rotation. I had it with a DC, but I think this is a KIND bar that would be better complemented by a cold glass of skim milk.
Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan -- I really liked it. Can see it as an every third or fourth day option.
Almonds & Apricots in Yogurt -- I like almonds, apricots, yogurt, and the coconut in this bar (even with the dental challenges coconut flakes pose), but I found this bar too sweet. If the almonds were saltier, I think this bar would be a real contender. But they're not.
One of my friends brought up one of the logistical challenges of eating a KIND bar in the car, which we both often do: chunks of the chocolate can flake off. Next thing you know, you're walking around with a smudge of dark chocolate on your backside or near your crotch. We discussed the possibility of using a tea towel or dish cloth on our laps to catch the chocolate crumbs and chunks. You heard it here first.
The other thing I want to point out is that KIND bars are full of nuts. I try to wash my hands after eating them, especially if I am going to be in contact with anyone who may be allergic.
Are you KIND? What's your flavor?
