I grew up an only child in a large extended family. My mother was the oldest of twelve children and our house was always busy. Really busy. Then there was my dad, he was the solid figure among the chaos. We would go to baseball games, fast food runs, and the park just the two of us. Most of the time we wouldn't even really talk, we just enjoyed the silence. As an adult my mother passed away when my oldest was 9 days old and then my dad became very ill. We had always had a strong bond, but it became even stronger. We started talking everyday on the phone, oftentimes about nothing in particular, just to know that the other person was on the other side of the line. It's the same as sitting at the park together not saying much at all just with a little farther distance in-between. My dad is my own personal super hero who keeps me grounded and is #kindawesome for so many reasons, he is my rock.

As many of you know I eat gluten free (not by choice I have Celiac Disease). KIND bars have a new variety of KIND Healthy Grain Bars that are gluten free. Each bar contains 18-22 grams of whole grains sourced from a blend of 100% unique whole grains including amaranth, quinoa, gluten-free oats, millet and buckwheat making them the perfect snack for any super hero’s healthy lifestyle.

The bars are available in the following flavors: 
  • Dark Chocolate Chunk
  • Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate
  • Vanilla Blueberry
  • Maple Pumpkin Seeds with Sea Salt
  • Oats & Honey with Toasted Coconut

I was sent 10 KIND Healthy Grain Bars to try for myself and review. Since I eat gluten free it can be hard to find bars that both taste good and meet my dietary restrictions. When the box arrived I was very excited to see how great the flavors sounded, I am a big stickler for anything with dark chocolate, so the dark chocolate bars stood out right away. After trying all ten bars, the Dark Chocolate Chunk and the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate flavors were my favorite. They were delicious and great for an afternoon snack. I like that they aren't too heavy, but are still packed with whole grains. Even my two boys loved the bars, which is saying a lot since they tend not to gravitate towards my gluten free snacks. It's nice having another gluten free option on the grocery store shelves! 

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  1. I usually carry a Kind bar n my lunch bag to eat in the late morning. I find that it keeps my hunger at bay until noon. I think they are a high quality bar. My favorite is the Dark chocolate nut and sea salt.

    Your dad was indeed awesome!

  2. My oldest daughter love these Kind bars. Since I'm allergic to nuts I don't eat them. She says that they are delicious. She's vegetarian so there isn't a lot she eats but this is one of them. :)

  3. I'm not surprised they're good. My husband loves Kind Bars too, and I pack them with his lunch sometimes.

    Like you, I like dark chocolate and my ears perked up a little when I read the Dark Chocolate Chunk... though all of the flavors sound good!

  5. I have seen these but they didn't look that appetizing. Since I like dark chocolate also, I might give them a try now.

    1. They taste better than they look :) They aren't as formed as a regular granola bar, but that's true of a lot of gluten free foods. They are a little small though, so I would only eat them as a snack between meals.
