I did think to myself that I’d try and write this whole review using puns, but I’d be nuts to. That’s the first and last, I promise. What we have here are the nutty, chocolatey fruity based bars from Kind.
There’s not a whole lot of things to say to introduce them to you, other than the fact that, on first impressions, they are PACKED with nuts.
I’m quite interested to test these out; I’m a lover of some nuts and others I’ll avoid at all costs, so my personal test is to see how these will fare to my pickiness.
And for you lot reading, it’s to see how these sweet snacks stack up with the rest of them. Let’s have a pecan see what they’re like… I really promise that’s the last one. (I don’t.)
What do the Kind bars taste like?
As you can see I’ve had a very wide selection of flavours to try! Disclaimer, I really dislike coconut, so I’ve given that one a miss. The others I’ve had a good try of. What do they taste of?
If you are a complete nut lover then you will really enjoy tucking into a Kind bar.
They’re packed full of flavour, seasoned with salt and the specific flavour attached to the bar.
Loads of crunch and naughty chocolate stringing through some of the flavours make them a complete assault on the senses. These are not a half hearted attempt at a nutty bar, these are an absolute nut extravaganza.
The different flavours all work really well, some sweeter than others, some with a definitely salty element which works really well.
My personal favourite is maple glazed pecan and sea salt, exactly what it says on the tin and more.
How many Syns are in Kind Bars?
Kind cars range from 8.5 syns (for the Dark Chocolate & Cherry Cashew) to 10.5 syns (for the Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt), which on the face of it is quite high for a small, sweet snack.
This is dependant on how you like to use up your syns. If you’re one who spreads them out through every meal then these aren’t for you.
This is for the one hit Synful wonder at the end of the day, when you’re looking for your sweet hit.
When you bite into a bar, it doesn’t feel like a diet bar, or something that’s ‘good for you’. It feels decadent, a complete luxury.
You might even think how they’re quite so low considering how they taste.
These aren’t small bars either, they’re a ‘proper’ size.
Where can I buy Kind Bars?
Kind bars are available in Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose and Co-op stores.
Priced from around £1.29 for an individual bar, and available in packs of 12 on Amazon for around £15.
Would I buy Kind Bars again?
I think I would, yes.
To know that I can buy an individual bar out and about from the supermarket and know I’m not going to be short changed on a sweet, nutty bar is a good excuse to purchase again.
As I’ve said, these are thoroughly nutty, they are not a chocolate bar with nuts in them, they’re a nut bar with a bit of chocolate.
That makes them sound inadequate. If you’re a fan of a nutty bar then you need not look further.
Healthy eating or not, these are a go-to for nut lovers far and wide.
