Kind Fruit & Nut/Nuts & Spices Bars Review
A big thankyou to the team at Kind for sending me their range of Fruit and Nut and Nuts and Spice bars to review recently...the range is now widely available in UK stores and consists of bars with all natural ingredients, that are dairy free, vegetarian as well as gluten free. There's a lot of varieties in the range, and below are my thoughts on a few that I was sent.
Almond & Coconut Fruit & Nut Bar:
Containing a mixture of almonds, coconut, honey and rice flour, this bar was full of chunky almonds which made it very satisfying to crunch. The coconut gives it that nice mellow tropical flavour, with the honey bringing a light natural sweetness. Overall, a very satisfying and tasty bar! 8.5 out of 10.
Caramel, Almond & Sea Salt Nuts & Spices Bar:
This is one I've reviewed already, so be sure to check out my review HERE!
Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt Bar:
Containing 60% mixed nuts, honey and a dark chocolate flavour coating (dairy free), this was again a very satisfying bar that felt very wholesome.
The lick of salt and the dark chocolate make it that extra bit tasty and moreish, so you get the best of both worlds. A very filling bar! 8 out of 10.
Madagascan Vanilla Almond Bar:
Containing a whopping 75% nuts (!), consisting of almonds, peanuts and cashews the main flavour of this bar is the madagascan vanilla.
Again this bar was very satisfying, with the chunky nuts feeling wholesome. The sweet vanilla flavour is perfect and gives it that extra luxury touch. I loved this one, the vanilla flavour is soooo good! 8.5 out of 10.
Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Bar:
This one I was super excited for, it contains 7g of protein as well as 50% nuts, which include peanut butter and almonds. It also has a dark chocolate coating and soy protein isolate.
Whilst this wasn't quite peanut butter in bar form, it was a very satisfying and wholesome bar. The peanuts are perfectly roasted and crunchy, with the chocolate coating adding a nice finish. 8.5 out of 10.
Well, that's all for today's review...I will be reviewing the remaining bars Kind sent me separately as there were just too many to fit in one post! I do love these bars, they're so satisfying and feel like real foods rather than some similar products on the market; I'm so glad to see them more widely available in the UK.
