KIND Snacks Pressed by KIND Apricot Pear Carrot Beet is a HIT!

This is a terrific addition to the Kind product line. Only ingredients are pear, apple, carrot, apricot and beet. Nothing else. All pressed together to create a wonderful tasting great mouthfeel bar that has just 1 gram of fat, 11 grams of naturally occurring sugars. Full review.
