Flavors: dark chocolate chunk, peanut butter dark chocolate, oats & honey, maple pumpkin seeds, and vanilla blueberry!
KIND Bar's are one of my favorite treats. They are made with simple ingredients and are really delicious. When I got the opportunity to review their new line of granola bars, I was so excited!
WHAT I LOVE: These snacks are gluten free and claim to be nonGMO. Key word claim. I love that they contain simple ingredients that I can pronounce!
WHAT I DISLIKE: They are not nonGMO project verified, a third party verification program. So I don't really know if they contain GMOs. Bummer. They also contain a few questionable ingredients.
INGREDIENTS of the dark chocolate chunk granola bar: Whole grains (gluten free oats, brown rice, millet, gluten free oat flour, buckwheat, amaranth, quinoa), tapioca syrup, evaporated cane juice, honey, nonGMO canola oil, coconut, chocolate liquor, sugar, brown rice syrup, molasses, gum acacia, sea salt, vanilla extract, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, Natural Vitamin E.

In my opinion the ingredient list seems a little long. I bolded the ingredients that are questionable to me. I would feel more confident if KIND products got nonGMO project verified.
I do enjoy these granola bars as a snack and think they are great for on the go. I especially love the dark chocolate chunk and peanut butter dark chocolate flavors (surprising right?) chocolate just gets me every time.
KIND Healthy Grain Bars are crunchy with a slight chew, perfect with a hot cup of tea or coffee. I also enjoy them crumbled on top of my smoothies. It's a yummy (and healthy) way to add some crunch!
How do you feel about companies that claim to be nonGMO but aren't verified by The nonGMO Project?
