Mango Macadamia KIND plus bars are fortified with calcium and other vitamins that aid in the absorption. It was a delicious blend of mango, coconut, and macadamia nuts.

They say:

Mango Macadamia’s tangy, fruity taste and slightly crunchy texture makes it a perfect choice for your sweet tooth. This KIND bar is enhanced with calcium and provides 50% of the recommended daily value of folic acid & vitamin D making it a healthy addition to your diet.

The Taste:

The mango was a little sweet, but  tasty. Macadamia nuts added a deliciously buttery flavor.

The Texture:

The texture was a hybrid of crunchy, gooey and crispy. I really enjoy the whole nuts in Kind bars- they’re a lot of fun to eat, and quite satisfying!

The Nutrition:

I appreciated the bar was sweetened with honey and contained calcium and vitamin D. It didn’t taste like it contained 12 g of fat, and 2 g of protein is relatively low for a 190 calorie bar. I thought the micronutrients were very well done, but the macro make this more of a treat than an every day snack.

Fortified with:

20% calcium

50% D3

50% Folate

Macro:

12 g fat

3 g fiber (added)

2 g protein

15 g sugar

 

Pros:

  • Great flavor
  • Good source of calcium
  • Perfect for a sweet and tropical treat

Cons:

  • Puffed rice (not whole grain)
  • Low in protein

Other considerations:

  • Contains honey

Overall:
