Review and Giveaway! KIND Healthy Snacks

Monday, November 5th, 2012 by Lisa

Friday, November 9, 2012 at 5pm PST.  This giveaway is now OVER.  A sincere thank you to all who entered!  The winner has been randomly chosen and notified via email.  Congratulations Ttrockwood!!!

This is a review that is near and dear to my heart.  I love KIND bars! Not only are they gluten-free, but they are so, so healthy!  I can have a KIND bar and feel like I’ve cheated and had a really great candy bar.  Really important to me is that they hold up when I put them in my purse.  I always carry one just in case I am hungry when I’m out and there’s no gluten-free foods available.

KIND bars are made of natural ingredients like almonds, peanuts, raisins, dates, cranberries, honey, flax and coconut, just to name a few.  My very favorite KIND bar is Almond & Coconut, followed closely by Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew.

The nice people at KIND were KIND enough to send me a nice sample of bars to try.  Included in my sample were:

    • Mango Macadamia
    • Peanut Butter &Strawberry
    • Almond & Coconut
    • Nut Delight
    • Fruit & Nut Delight
    • Blueberry Pecan
    • Cranberry Almond
    • Almond Cashew With Flax
    • Almonds & Apricots in Yogurt
    • Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew

They are all delicious!!!


I also have very exciting news!

On November 1, 2012, KIND launched it’s Snack & Give Back Campaign to benefit several great charities!


From the folks at KIND:


KIND, Arianna Huffington, Bobbi Brown and Grace Potter Invite You to Snack & Give Back this Holiday Season

New campaign empowers people to give back through healthy snacking


(New York, NY – November 1, 2012) – KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND), a brand of delicious, all natural foods made from ingredients you can see & pronounce®, is encouraging people everywhere to Snack & Give Back this holiday season in partnership with health-loving do-gooders and notable tastemakers, Arianna Huffington (HuffingtonPost), Bobbi Brown (Bobbi Brown Cosmetics) and Grace Potter (Grace Potter and the Nocturnals).

Through KIND’s first ever Snack & Give Back campaign, people are invited to purchase Arianna, Bobbi and Grace’s limited edition, custom designed and personally-curated KIND cubes on By purchasing these cubes, people can show their support for the Committee to Protect Journalists, Broome Street Academy and the Alzhiemer’s Association— charities of personal importance to Arianna, Bobbi and Grace respectively. As part of the campaign, KIND is making a $10,000 donation to each charity.


*The Arianna Huffington GPS for the Soul Cube was created by Arianna to help free you from the stress of a hyper-connected life and regain that centered place within you.

The Arianna Huffington GPS for the Soul Cube features a selection of Arianna’s favorite flavors – Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants, Almonds and Apricots in Yogurt, Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt and Pomegranate Blueberry Pistachio + Antioxidants – and a portion of the sales of the cube will help KIND support the Committee to Protect Journalists, an organization promoting press freedom worldwide by defending the rights of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.


* The Bobbi Brown Eat Pretty Powerful Cube was curated by Bobbi to empower women to embrace and enhance their unique beauty, not only through the makeup they wear, but also the ways they choose to live, eat and give back.

The Bobbi Brown Eat Pretty Powerful Cube features Bobbi’s four favorite flavors – Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, Cashew & Ginger Spice, Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan, and Madagascar Vanilla Almond – and a portion of sales of the cube will help KIND fund a new KIND Kitchen at the Broome Street Academy, a public charter high school that prepares New York City’s most vulnerable young people to graduate with Regents diplomas.



*The Grace Potter Backstage Snack Pack was designed by Grace to remind people that eating well and doing good are key aspects of being a true ‘rock star.’

The Grace Potter Backstage Snack Pack features Grace’s go-to flavors – Peanut Butter & Strawberry, Almond & Coconut, Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew + Antioxidants and Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt – and a portion of sales of the cube will help KIND support the Alzheimer’s Association, the leading, global voluntary health organization in Alzheimer’s care and support, and the largest private, nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s research.


The limited edition cubes will be available for $42.95 on starting November 1, 2012.
