Protein Bars

Strong & Kind Honey Smoked BBQ Almond Protein Bar

Updated Nov 26, 2016

Maybe it’s part psychological, but I enjoy this strange snack bar.  It’s sticky, spicy, and nutty.  It’s not sweet.  It tastes like dinner food.  Which is why it’s psychological, maybe. Recently, I turned to eating these while on vacation.

My family eats cereal, spaghetti, more spaghetti, pizza, candy…. And I just can’t eat all of the carbs.  So I eat less, and then after the regular family meal, I eat one of these high protein bars.  (Or, sometimes, I eat it before the meal.)  At over 200 calories and only 15 carbs, it’s my kind of diet food.  If you’re looking for a meal replacement bar, you might be pleasantly surprised with this one.

On the packaging, it says “Strong” really big, and I have to say that too many carbs make me feel ill, so I’ll eat something that subtly promises me strength, because I want a strong mood.  I want energy and ambition.  Strength can be interpreted in many ways.

Until next time…

I usually buy Kind bars at Costco or Amazon, but I found a stash of these at my local Marshalls recently. If you have a Marshalls nearby, you should check out the back of their store for deep discounts on gourmet foods. I've also found ghirardelli chocolate there too. Sometimes, the dates are close to the best buy dates, so if you want a long shelf, it's better to buy on Amazon.

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...
