I'm not talking about fitness. Bar method may be a great workout, but group fitness is not for me.
My bar method is to eat a KIND bar for breakfast or to grab one for a boost if I have a tennis match at an odd time, say 10:30 a.m. -- too early for lunch, well past breakfast.
I reviewed some KIND bars a few months back, and I'm at it again.
Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt is my gold standard, go-to bar. I'd be shocked but delighted if another KIND bar ever topped it. I love the saltiness of the nuts and the thin layer of dark chocolate.
Dark Chocolate Almond Mint: It's almost not fair for me to review this one because I don't really care for mint and chocolate together. I enjoy the green (not blue) minty lifesavers and adore the muddled mint in a mojito, BUT thin mints, mint chocolate chip ice cream, grasshopper cookies (do those still exist?), peppermint patties, Andie's mints ... nope, nope, nope, nope, and nope. I tasted this bar and found it palatable. I suspect that those who love the marriage of mint and chocolate will really love this bar. Minty without that icky artificial flavor.
Goodness Knows Peach & Cherry Almond Dark Chocolate: The flavor of this bar is okay, not offensive and not tremendous. I do like how the bars are portioned into four big bites. I had one in my purse at tennis and was able to grab squares during a couple water breaks. These bars weren't expensive, but I doubt I'll buy them again.
Dark Chocolate Almond & Coconut: I know that some people's feelings about coconut mirror mine about the mint/chocolate combination. I LOVE the flavor and texture of coconut. This KIND bar is phenomenal, like an Almond Joy that you can pretend is sort of healthy. I am excited to add this one into the rotation and am pleased to report that it is available at my local Jewel. I would rank it number two after my gold standard.
Goodness Knows Cranberry Almond Dark Chocolate: Better than the Peach & Cherry one but, still, just okay.
What's your bar method?
