One of our Favorite Gluten Free Snacks for On-The-Go

Several months ago, I discovered a new brand of snack bar popping up in most of the stores where we shop. The bars are called KIND Fruit and Nut, and they're made in Australia. Yes, they are kind to Celiacs, and kind to the tastebuds! Thank you to whomever started importing them! They are a breath of fresh air compared to many other gluten-free (and even gluten-containing) snack bars. They are mainly fruit and nut, but quite different from LaraBars. The nuts are whole, and they are "held together" by things like chewy apricot paste, honey, and coconut. My personal favorites are the Macadamia and Apricot and the Almond and Coconut varieties. These aren't your "low fat" bars, however. For example, the Macadamia and Apricot variety contains 22% of a day's supply of fat (and 27% of your daily allowed saturated fat intake). But they have a low glycemic value, are a good source of fiber, are all natural, are also dairy free, and are low in sodium and contain no trans fat. A home run in my book -- and my son's. They're great for keeping in a purse or backpack and perfect for travel since they don't melt and don't get easily squashed like other "breakfast bars."  Buy them online or look for them where you shop...
