Kind Whole Fruit Bars, formerly known as Pressed by Kind

3

In 2016, Kind launched their first fruit bars, Pressed by Kind. Since then, they’ve received a new name, a new look, and some new flavors. They’re now called Kind Whole Fruit Bars, and include some dark chocolate-dipped varieties. I’ve left one of my old photos below, of the Mango Apple Chia Bar, since they still make it, and the bar itself still has the same ingredients and formula (so it looks like the picture).

Kind Whole Fruit Bars are Next Level Natural

Unlike similar brands, Kind Whole Fruit Bars have no added sugars and no added fruit juices or concentrates. The texture of each flavor is a little chunky with actual bites of fruit rather than just fruit puree. They’re bars (not leather) with the tender goodness of dried fruit – that’s it! Okay, you might find some chia seeds within, and some are dipped in dark chocolate. But those are healthful bonuses, in my opinion.

Not your ordinary fruit bar

These bars are free of added sugars and fruit juices, and have tender chunky appeal rather than a fully pureed consistency. The Mango flavor has a fresh sweet-tart flavor that I found really intriguing. I also liked the little bites of chia seeds.

  1. Tried the Pineapple Coconut Chia and the Pineapple Banana Kale Spinach. Was not impressed with either one. Taste was not appealing and overall texture sucks. Will not be purchasing this product again!!!
