First ever giveaway!

As you know, I’ve never had a contest on my blog before. Normally if someone approaches me to promote something on here I turn them down. That’s not what this site is all about. However, when a rep from KIND Snacks contacted me and asked if I’d like some free samples and the opportunity to give some to you too, I said “yes and yes!”. KIND is not paying me for this blog post and I wouldn’t be writing it if I didn’t think they made a great product. I mean, how could I pass up some free KIND bars? Even if my boyfriend does love them too so I have to share them with him.

Some of the KIND bars are a little high in sugar; more of the older flavours that incorporated dried fruit. Most of the newer ones have 4-5 grams of sugar, which, without the use of non-nutritive sweeteners and sugar alcohols, I challenge you to find in any other snack bar. I love that they’re simple whole ingredients, primarily nuts, and are a good source of protein and fibre. They’re a great snack to stash in your bag, car, or desk for a quick pick-me-up in the morning or afternoon. I can’t wait until their “strong” bars (with flavours like Honey Mustard, and Thai Sweet Chili are available in Canada. I must confess, one of my missions when I went to Boston to run the marathon last spring was to find (and eat) these Strong bars. Sadly, the only flavour I came across was the Hickory Smoked.

Okay, okay. I know you just want the free stuff. So… For your chance to win a free box of KIND Bars just comment on this post telling me your favourite flavour of KIND bar or your favourite product they make. My personal fave is the Dark Chocolate Nuts and Sea Salt. It’s the perfect marriage of healthy snack and decadent treat.

The contest will close on Monday, February 2nd at 9:00am AST. The winner will be randomly selected. Once contacted, they will have 12 hours to get in touch with me with their mailing details. If they don’t respond by that time, a new winner will be randomly selected. Good luck and happy snacking!

Update February 2nd:

We have a winner! Congratulations Vanessa! You’ll be receiving a free box of Kind bars in the mail shortly! Thanks to everyone who entered.

  14. The honey mustard! When the STRONG flavors came out in the US I immediately bought all of them and had a taste test. I’m someone who prefers salty snacks over sweets any day, so these were a very welcome addition to a market flooded with candy bars with a health halo.

  37. I tried both the Peanut Butter Dark Chocolate and now the Fruit & Nut Delight. As much as I love chocolate, I have to side with the “Fruit & Nut Delight”. I found it very nice and chewy with great taste while I found the PBDC to be very hard and not as pleasurable to chew.

  38. Wow, you’re giving away something delicious and still don’t get as many comments as your “Sorry, dietitians just aren’t sexy” post. The peanut butter dark chocolate is very good but the dark chocolate nuts and sea salt is tempting as well.
