I’m just gonna say it - Kind Bars are not healthy.
I get it though. They contain nuts and fruit (and sometimes chocolate), they’re a source of protein and antioxidants, they’re low in sodium and have zero trans fats. Plus, they say “healthy” on the label.
The FDA apparently has a problem with that last part.
The Food and Drug Agency sent a warning letter in March 2015 to Kind informing it that four of its products — Fruit & Nut Almond & Apricot, Fruit & Nut Almond & Coconut, Plus Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate + Protein and Fruit & Nut Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew — “do not meet the requirements for use of the nutrient content claim ‘healthy’ on a food label.”
If the FDA, who are usually the last people to figure anything out, say that it isn’t healthy, then I definitely know something is up.
Here’s the truth. Kind Bars are dressed up candy bars.
