My Favorite Snacks

Madagascar Vanilla Almond Kind Bar

Updated Nov 25, 2016

I’ve eaten about a dozen different types of Kind bars now.  I usually buy them in boxes of 12.  Yesterday, a box of Madagascar Vanilla Almond Bars arrived in my mailbox.  I ate my first one 20 minutes after checking my mail.  It seemed like just the right snack.  It was!

Ordering a box of a new flavor is a bit of a risk, and I guess I must have a risk-adverse personality, because I hesitated.  Madagascar vanilla?  With cashews?  Only 4 grams of sugar? Will I like that?

I do!  I do, indeed.  I could eat these every day for breakfast and mid-morning snack.  I guess I also like routine.  When I was a kid, I ate muffins every day for lunch because I didn’t like sandwiches.  Go figure.

Sticky and Delicious

This one is sticky, so I took this photo with the sticky side up so that it wouldn't stick to my paper background.
I'm on my second big box of these delicious Madagascar Vanilla Almond snack bars. Can't get enough of them!

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...
