I don’t often eat granola bars.
Not because I don’t love them (I do), but because many contain a ton of sketchy ingredients and added sugar.
The only ones I pack on hiking or kayaking trips? KIND bars.
Not only are they delicious, but they’re made with good ingredients. Plus, my favorites, like the Caramel, Almond & Sea Salt, only have five grams of sugar. Compare that to NutriGrain or Nature Valley, both of which have 11 grams.
I’m also happy to support a company whose goals include “making kindness a state of mind.”
One perfect example? Their #kindawesome promotion, which encourages you to send free KIND snacks to your friends and family.
How to Send Free KIND Snacks to a Friend
The #kindawesome campaign is running indefinitely. It’s “A little program we cooked up to celebrate kind acts everywhere,” according to KIND.
Here’s how it works:
- Spot someone being kind.
- Send that person an e-card through the #kindawesome website.
- After submitting their address, they’ll receive two free KIND snacks in the mail.
- They can choose to pass the kindness on by sending more snacks.
- You can also send more KIND snacks to the kind people in your life.
Yay for KINDness and free snacks!
