If you're a regular attendee of Cowboys' games, it's likely you received a gluten-free treat on occasion during the 2013 season. That's because representatives of KIND Healthy Snacks were on hand to distribute samples of their all-natural snack bars to game-goers as they exited the stadium.
In my personal opinion, it was the best freebie we received all year. After the first encounter, I immediately went in search of more.
The KIND company's mission is simple: They believe you should be able to have a healthy snack that also tastes good.
It is also of utmost importance that every product contain only ingredients you can both see and pronounce. So, the only things you'll find in their products are nuts, fruits, honey, and spices; not scary additives like sodium benzoate or sulfur dioxide.
The best part for Celiacs and those with a gluten intolerance is that every KIND snack has been tested for gluten and, according to the company's website, "meet FDA’s proposed requirement of 20ppm (0.002%) of gluten." Not only that, but all products are non-GMO, and the Fruit & Nut bars and Healthy Grains bars are certified Kosher OU-D by the Orthodox Union.
Just a sampling of what you'll find in the KIND product line-up include all-natural snack bars, healthy grain granola bars, and healthy grain clusters in a wide range of flavors. Choose from vanilla blueberry clusters with flax seeds, dark chocolate & cranberry clusters, pomegranate blueberry pistachio, almond and coconut, or any of the other 22 snack bar and 6 cluster varieties available.
How good is KIND? Apparently a recent study by the Yale-Griffin Prevention Research Center revealed that two KIND bars a day will help curb appetite and may even help prevent weight gain.
