My Favorite Snacks

Cranberry Almond + Antioxidants Kind Plus Bar

Updated Nov 26, 2016

OH MY!  This is the perfect example of why Kind Bars are the best.  It’s super sticky and super delicious.  There are macadamia nuts in this one.  Can you believe that?  I can’t believe they didn’t put that in the name of these, after all, how often do you find macadamia nuts in anything other than chocolate chip cookies?

What a unique tongue treat this one is!  It’s very sticky, so I don’t recommend unwrapping it and putting it on a sheet of paper like I did, unless you like the taste of paper.  Instead, it should go directly in your mouth.  Sticky side up or down, you’re choice.

As you can see in the photo, this looks like a nuts & fruit trail mix shaped into a bar.  There’s no filler carbs.  See all of the gaps between those nuts?  I think the lack of filler carbs is why it is so sticky.  It’s a tad on the sweet side compared to some of the lower sugar nut bars like Caramel Almond Kind Bars and Madagascar Vanilla Almond Kind Bars, but the ones that contain fruit are often a little sweeter.  And my, dried cranberries are like 100x better than raisons, IMHO.

About the Author


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...
