April 21/Chicago -- Kind announced the extension of its Kind Nuts & Spices and Kind Healthy Grains Clusters lines with the addition of five new flavors.
KIND Nuts & Spices
- Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond
- Caramel Almond & Sea Salt
KIND Healthy Grains Clusters
- Fruit & Nut
- Banana Nut
- Raspberry with Chia Seeds
These seemingly indulgent flavors expand the line to include eight flavors containing only 5g of sugar (or less) and nothing artificial. Each bar is also crafted from a foundation of whole almonds, which recent studies have shown have life-extending properties, Kind notes.
As with the original five flavors, these new offerings are made with a unique blend of five super grains including gluten free oats, millet, quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat. Each serving of Kind Healthy Grains Clusters (50g) provides more than one full serving of whole grains.
Along with the introduction of these new flavors, Kind updated its packaging across all eight varieties to create a sleeker, cleaner design. With this new look, Kind is highlighting both the flavor profiles and the key nutritional features associated with each flavor, including protein, low fat and fiber.
Additional research has also indicated that people are eating granola in different ways, including as a stand-alone snack or as a cereal replacement. To help people understand the serving sizes and nutritionals associated with each, Kind Healthy Grains Clusters packaging will also feature a dual nutrition panel that breaks out information by “Snack” (29g) or “Bowl” (50g).
