My Favorite Snacks

Caramel Almond & Sea Salt Kind Bar

Updated Nov 25, 2016

Love almonds?  And caramels?  Then you’ll probably enjoy this nutty nutrition bar.

This is one of my go-to treats, when I want a “treat” but really shouldn’t eat candy.  It’s hard to believe, but these Caramel Almond & Sea Salt Kind Bars have only 5 grams of sugar.  To put that in perspective, a 6oz Yoplait yogurt has 18 grams of sugar.  Or, maybe to compare it with something more common, a teaspoon of granulated sugar is 4 grams.   So, it’s about 1.25 teaspoons of sugar in this snack.  I don’t think that’s too much, at least not compared to most other American snacks.  And at about 200 calories, it’s about equal in calories to one of those small diet TV dinners.

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...
