KIND Bar and a Secret Talent...Revealed (11.14.2008)

During my excursion to Trader Joes the other day, I picked up a KIND Fruit + Nut bar to try. Today was the big day to test it out. Here it is along with some other snacks I took to work with me - banana was mashed in my oatmeal and then I had a flat out wrap with almond butter and apple butter as my mid-morning snack. The pear and KIND bar were lunch along with a TJ Honey Greek yogurt with almonds and dried cranberries mixed in. Food today was on the light side to save up for TONIGHT @ Red Maple! KIND gets a close-up. Almonds & Apricots in yogurt.First bite, I thought - wow, this is really sweet. But there were whole almonds and it had a strong coconut flavor which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Ingredient List: Almonds, Yogurt Compound, Apricots, Honey Shredded Coconut, Coconut Chips, Glucose, Puffed Rice, Chicory Fiber, Soy Lecithin.

I thought Coconut chips sounded interesting! Never heard of these!

Nutrition Facts: Calories:210, Total Fat: 13g, Total Carb: 19g, Protein: 4g.

I would definitely buy another KIND bar because it really did fill me up and satisfy me, but it would be one without yogurt since I felt this one was too sweet.

I realized that in my last post, I showed how Oscar and Lucy were related, but I forgot to show where they learned this...my secret talent: I can touch my tongue to my nose!Have fun trying it! :)

That's funny! I've never jumped on the bar bandwagon, i.e. Larabar, etc. Mostly they have too many carbs and aren't insulin worthy!

Have a great weekend!

The KIND bar sounds good...I must try it.

That is one impressive talent! Have fun at Red Maple. Maybe if you showed them what you can do with your tongue, they'll let you have free dessert.
