Having fruits in any kind of granola or energy bar is not really my thing - I'm more of a chocolate and peanut butter flavor type girl. Nevertheless, I've been giving these types of bars more of a shot and that's how I ended up with an Almond & Apricot KIND Fruit & Nut Bar. I do love almonds, I reasoned, and the bar did look pretty darn delicious.

NUTRITION FACTS
Serving Size: 40 grams
Calories: 170
Total Fat: 11 grams, 17%
Saturated Fat: 5 grams, 24%
Sodium: 25 mg, 1%
Carbohydrates:16 grams
Fiber: 5 grams, 18%
Sugar: 13 grams
Protein: 3 grams

Another thing that attracted me to this was the all-natural (and gluten free) ingredient list: almonds, apricots (apricot paste, glycerol [vegetable based], pectin, apple fiber, citric acid), honey, shredded coconut, coconut chips, glucose, puffed rice, chicory fiber, and soy lecithin. This bar is also wheat-, gluten-, and dairy-free, plus it's made with non-GMO ingredients to boot.

Now let's talk taste. I've got just one word for you: yummylicious! The bar is crunchy, thanks to the almonds and puffed rice, and it's sweet without being overwhelming. I really liked the apricot flavor, so I decided that maybe I just don't like raisins and such. I also LOVED the whole almonds and coconut in the bar. I can't believe they don't advertise the coconut! It's so delicious!

Each 40 gram KIND Fruit & Nut Apricot & Almond Bar provides 170 calories, 11 grams of total fat, 5 grams of which is saturated (18% and 24% of the daily value), 5 grams of fiber, 13 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of protein.

The fat content is a little on the high side, but bonus points for the all natural ingredients list with fiber and a dash of protein. I got one of these for $1.95 at a Starbucks, and I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.
