For those of you who have spent any extended period of time around this neck of the woods, you know that I am not a “cool blogger.” No one sends me anything, ever, probably because my circle of influence is a bit on the minor side (and because I don’t want to solicit brands for their products). Needless to say, when I received an e-mail from KIND a couple weeks before the Chicago Marathon, it was the greatest day of my blogging life.
Coincidentally, I had my first KIND Bar during marathon training. Back in July I found myself at Trader Joe’s, buying food for my Fourth of July festivities and ready to gnaw my arm off because I was so hungry. I bought a KIND Bar, ate it on my way out of the store, and have been in love ever since. (I also got a free KIND Bar one day while running down by North Ave. Beach, which was probably the best run I had in 18 weeks, because hello: free food = good run).
I’m crazy about KIND products. Not only do they taste fantastic but as far as snack food goes, they’re pretty good for you. All natural, non-GMO, gluten free (for those of you who with gluten sensitivities), and all of the Nuts & Spices bars have 5g of sugar or less and STILL taste phenomenal. It’s great.
KIND sent me 14 bars and a bag of dark chocolate & cranberry clusters granola. While I haven’t eaten my way through the entire stash yet, I’ve made a bit of a dent and so far am continuing to adore KIND snacks.
Thus far, I’d have to say the Cashew & Ginger Spice is my favorite flavor. I cannot get over the fact that I love the Cashew & Ginger Spice bar so much, because I really do not particularly enjoy ginger. I guess if anything’s a testimonial to how delicious these bars are, that’s probably it. (I have, however, been saving the chocolate ones for last, so Cashew & Ginger Spice might be dethroned in the coming days 😉 )
And now it’s your turn! For the first time ever in the history of this insignificant little ol’ blog, I have a giveaway for you! KIND has generously offered to share the wealth in the form of 12 bars and two bags of granola to one lucky Accidental Intentions reader. You have two ways to enter:
1. Leave a comment telling me which snack food is your favorite (or telling me whatever you want to tell me…I’m not picky). (required)
2. Tweet about the giveaway, and leave a comment to let me know you did so.
The giveaway will remain open until 5 p.m. CDT on Wednesday, October 30, and the randomly chosen winner will be announced Thursday morning. Good luck!
I got my KIND snacks fo’ free, but all opinions are my own, etc.
