Kit’s Organic Fruit and Nut Bar – Cashew

Health Values: organic, gluten-free, soy-free, dairy-free, non-GMO

We love dates. We love their sweetness and sultry texture. Personally, when I have a particularly difficult craving for the type of sweets I can’t have, a date or two will help to curb those cravings. So when I discovered that Kit’s Organic Fruit & Nut Bars had organic dates as the first ingredient, I couldn’t wait to try it.

But somehow, Kit’s managed to find dates that aren’t sweet. Both of us frowned a bit when we first took a whiff of the bar, which prompted us to take a small first taste rather than plunging in with a full bite. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great either.

Our opinions varied slightly – my fellow GF healthy eater thought the bar tasted “odd, almost like it had a little bit of soy that didn’t belong in it” (note: for the record, this bar is soy-free). She said it took some getting used to in order to finish her half.

On the other hand, I thought the taste improved with subsequent bites. But neither of us would buy this bar again – I’d sooner stuff a cashew into a real date and have that for a snack instead. At least my candy craving would be quashed.
