Healthful Nutrition Bars

Almond & Coconut Kind Fruit & Nut Bar

Updated Dec 4, 2016

This is a great post-exercise snack!

Today I walked 2.5 miles, and also I spent about 6 hours programming, so I was especially hungry in the late afternoon.  I enjoyed an Almond & Coconut Kind bar.  Not only was it delicious, but it seemed to give me more energy, which makes the evening time much more enjoyable.

I often eat a before dinner snack.  I don’t always eat one that’s sweet, though, because I have diabetes.  But on days when I exercise more, I need higher sugar snacks, because exercise sometimes causes me to have low blood sugar.  I usually try to reserve the sweeter Kind Bars for when my blood sugar is lower. Diabetes is an annoying disease which requires a lot of effort to maintain the right balance.  Kind bars are a healthful snack, but I always have to pay attention to the nutrition profile of anything I eat.

I found these Coconut & Almond Kind Bars at Costco, as part of an exclusive variety pack.  The other flavor in the box is Cranberry Almond.  You can also buy this flavor in a box of 12 at Amazon.com

So, let me get back to reviewing this delicious bar.  It’s composed of almond pieces and whole almond, and layers upon layers of coconut.  It’s very chewy and quite delicious.

Its stickiness feel is just about average.   (If you’ve read my other Kind bar reviews, you know that some are so sticky that they stick to paper plates.)  So, it’s not super sticky.  But it’s definitely chewy.

So Much Coconut...

Hi, my name is Linnea. I have 3 boxes of kind bars in my pantry. I guess you could say I've become kind of addicted.

I eat Kind bars because they taste good and they're good for me. Each one provides about 200 nutrient-dense calories. Many of my favorite ones are low in sugar, which is important to me because I have diabetes. In order to keep my blood glucose levels from skyrocketing, I have to eat a low-carb diet... so I'm always super happy to find something that I genuinely enjoy snacking on that's also pretty darn good for me.

Also, as you may have guessed from this site's name, I'm a software developer. I write code for a living. And debug it.  So, I often need a quick snack to keep my brain going... And kind bars are really quick.  Just unwrap and eat.

So my plan is to publish reviews and info about some of my favorite snacks. Perhaps other programmers will enjoy them too 🙂

Stay tuned...
