Sampling event: two new flavors of KIND bars in participating Starbucks stores beginning April 6

On April 6, customers may try a complimentary KIND bar during a national sampling event, while supplies last, in participating Starbucks stores

SEATTLE, 2015-4-6 — /EPR Retail News/ — With busy lifestyles on the rise, more people want snacks that are both wholesome and portable. Health experts recommend eating balanced mini meals throughout the day to help curb appetite and to help fuel the body.

“When done right, snacking helps to keep your energy up throughout the day with the added bonus of providing more opportunities to sneak in more nutrients throughout the day. Exercise is one important element to a healthy lifestyle so it’s essential to have energy from balanced meals and snacks to properly fuel your body to work out,” said Keri Glassman, a nationally recognized nutritionist and author of The New You and Improved Diet.

Here are three ways to incorporate smart snacking into the day:

Boost Energy

Most people report feeling tired and sluggish in the afternoon. Look for a snack that has at least 5 grams of fiber and protein. “I recommend a KIND® Nuts & Spices Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Nut bar, now available at Starbucks,” Glassman said. “This bar has 6 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein and 5 grams of sugar with no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols. Pair the KIND bar with a Starbucks Flat White or an Iced Caffé Latte for an added calcium boost to create a complete snack.”

Sharpen Focus

Pair a Teavana Earl Grey Black Loose-Leaf Tea with a KIND® Fruit & Nut Almond Coconut Chai Cashew bar. “Caffeine has been shown to produce a better ability to focus, improving both speed and accuracy,” she said.

Fuel Workouts

The best time to exercise is the late afternoon or early evening, when physical performance is usually best and the risk of injury least, according to Michael Smolenskey, author of The Body Clock Guide to Better Health. “For a light offering that can energize your workout, try an Evolution Fresh Sweet Greens with Lemon Cold Pressed Juice, a great way hydrate. Add a pre-workout snack like Greek yogurt to help you power through a sweat session,” said Glassman.

As part of Starbucks commitment to offer a wide assortment of wholesome and convenient foods, beginning April 6 customers may enjoy two new flavors of KIND bars available in U.S. company operated and participating licensed Starbucks stores: a KIND® Fruit & Nut Almond Coconut Cashew Chai bar and a KIND® Nuts & Spices Salted Caramel & Dark Chocolate Nut bar. KIND® bars are great for eating on the go and are gluten free.
