The spring of 2013 has brought a bevy of new products and trends to the honey product world. Gluten-free products and nuts, even though they represent both ends of the allergy spectrum, are largely in demand with consumers. Three of our favorite products of April serve as tasty representations.
1. KIND Bars
Making a showing at both Expo West and the Dr. Oz show, where nutrition expert Heidi Skolnik recommended the bars, the entire KIND line includes honey, whole nuts, spices and fruits. A new Yale study showed that snacking on two KIND bars a day helps to suppress your appetite and reduce overeating—sounds like an ideal snack to us.
Our office taste test won us over, making this product No. 2 on our list. The taste of whiskey married with the smooth sweetness of honey made for a great drink for any occasion.
Not only are these gluten-free, they are wheat-free, dairy-free and casein-free—a great comfort to know America’s favorite campfire snack can be enjoyed by all.
