KIND Healthy Snacks (KIND) is kicking it up a notch (make that two notches, to be exact) with the unveil of its two newest flavors: Dark Chocolate Chili Almond and Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt. These newest additions broaden the KIND Nuts & Spices™ line of bars to now include six varieties containing only 5g of sugar (or less) – and nothing artificial.
“The original KIND Nuts & Spices flavors became fast favorites. In fact, two of the flavors quickly earned themselves a spot on our best sellers list and we’ve since had an overwhelming number of requests for more variety,” says Marc de Grandpre, senior vice president of marketing at the New York-based company. “So, we’re excited to give our KINDAHOLICS what they want by expanding the KIND Nuts & Spices line while staying true to our commitment to using the finest all natural ingredients you can see and pronounce®.”
According to company officials, KIND Nuts & Spices continues to stand out in the category for its unique ability to provide a delicious, natural way to reduce sugar intake and meet daily protein and fiber needs without using sugar alcohols or other artificial sweeteners. Further, these newest additions cement KIND’s standing as a purveyor of healthy and tasty as they are on the cutting edge of food trends recently reported by USA Today and other news outlets who’ve forecasted ‘spicy sweet’ offerings and the use of maple as the next obsessions taste buds worldwide will be craving.
Dark Chocolate Chili Almond is a sweet and spicy blend of mixed nuts drizzled in chocolate with a trio of cascabel, ancho and habanero chilies. Each bar has seven grams of fiber, six grams of protein and five grams of sugar. Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt is a sweet and salty combination of pecans, almonds and peanuts covered in maple syrup with a touch of sea salt. Each bar has five grams of fiber, six grams of protein and five grams of sugar.
Similarly to all KIND snacks, KIND Nuts & Spices is all-natural, gluten-free, low-glycemic, non-GMO and low in sodium. The newest flavors will join the original four flavors of KIND Nuts & Spices (Dark Chocolate Nuts & Sea Salt, Madagascar Vanilla Almond, Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Pecan and Cashew & Ginger Spice) on KINDsnacks.com and grocers nationwide beginning June 2013. Suggested retail price is $1.99 per bar.
