*CLOSED* Grateful Giveaways #1: Kind Bars Gift Package

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

To kick off the summer, I’m excited to once again be part of the Grateful Giveaways group, bringing you 9 awesome giveaways for more summer fun. Watch for a new one every hour on the hour!

To get things started, we have a GREAT giveaway from KIND Snacks, who make healthy snacks you can feel good about sharing with the whole family. But we’ll understand if you hoard them all for yourself instead!  I seriously HOARD these for myself whenever I treat myself to them – they are seriously THAT GOOD!

KIND is a brand of all natural whole nut and fruit bars made from ingredients you can see and pronounce. It’s also a movement that gives new purpose to snacking.

KIND was founded on the principles of holistic kindness – being KIND to your body, your taste buds and the world – the power of “and” — healthy AND tasty, convenient AND wholesome, economically sustainable AND socially impactful.

KIND Snacks are the perfect summer snack. Keep them in your purse or backpack for a healthy snack on-the-go or in your pantry for a tasty treat at home!

Their signature product, the KIND Bar, now comes in dozens of flavors – like Apple Cinnamon Pecan and Peanut Butter Strawberry – made from high quality fruits, nuts and spices.

Their newest product line, Kind Healthy Grains Clusters, offers delicious, artisanal blends of nature’s most healthful whole grains and superfoods, packed full of essential vitamins, minerals, dietary fiber, and protein.

Portable and versatile, KIND Healthy Grains can be enjoyed with milk, by the handful, or on top of yogurt – a convenient anytime snack or breakfast for kids and adults. They are available in six flavors including:

  • Peanut Butter Whole Grain Clusters provides 5g of protein and contains16g of whole grains.

  1. Paula Detweiler says

    I would take them to the pool for a mid-swim snack for my 3 children. As some are gluten free it would be perfect for my Celiac son who is 4. Thank you for the opportunity.

  2. Donna Richardson says

    I already follow PPM on Facebook. I recently tried KIND bars at an airport. I am not a granola fan so even though the bars looked to be just nuts and fruit, I was a little hesitant. I am so glad I took the chance – I am now a huge fan – they are AWESOME!

  3. stefanie Nichols says

    I love Kind bars and so does my son. He can’t have gluten so I pick these up on sale for him. Hope I win!!! Gluten free can be a bit more pricey… I get your emails and liked all the right pages

  4. Ray Schlee says

    My wife is nursing our baby who has a milk protein allergy. These bars are one of the few out there that does not include milk the she can eat.

    In short, I would give them to my wife to use as a snack.

  5. Holly Ridenour says

    We would probably eat them at home as a snack but I’m sure some would end up in my purse for on-the-go snacking, too!
